“I got a phone call from our liaison at the White House saying this particular historian whose name sounded Jewish would not do. The liaison said he would not even take the time to present Carter with the possibility of including the historian on the board because he knew Carter would think the name sounded too Jewish. I explained the historian is Presbyterian, but the liaison said it wouldn’t matter to Carter.”
Freedman said he was “outraged by this absurdity.”
“If I was memorializing Martin Luther King, I would expect a significant number of board members to be African American. If I was memorializing Native American figures I’d expect a lot of Native Americans to be on the board.
“I do not for a moment consider it inappropriate to build a Holocaust council with a significant majority of the board being Jewish,” Freedman stated.
Freedman describes himself as “self-proclaimed liberal.” He said he decided to speak out after the release of Carter’s latest book, “Palestine: Peace not Apartheid,” which some have accused of being biased against Israel.
What do those of you who were upset with Erick for calling Carter an anti-Semite have to say now?
