What is it about Jewish organizations that they acclaim their opponents?
I will come, at my own expense, to debate Jimmy Carter on Carter's own human rights record. If Cardozo will have me, I will come and provide the students, the administration and anyone else that is interested, with a first rate debate about the meaning of human rights and they can decide whether what Jimmy Carter has done, constitutes human rights or human wrongs.
I am a proud graduate of the Cardozo School of Law, and I support the right of the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution to bestow the International Advocate for Peace Award upon former US president Jimmy Carter. And I do not agree with the so-called “Coalition of Concerned Cardozo Alumni” who asked Cardozo Alumni to “to condition any continued support of Cardozo, be it financial or otherwise, on the cancellation of this event” (although I respect their efforts). Student protest is the way to go.
The aim of people like Jimmy Carter, who claims to love the Bible is to deny us our God given rights, written clearly in the Bible, to our Land.

Four major American Jewish organizations publicly expressed disgust over the choice to honor Jimmy Carter by a journal of Cardozo School of Law.
The Coalition of Concerned Cardozo Alumni, however, looked at Carter's "lifetime of work" and rather than see something worthy of an award, they saw a record of slandering Israel.
