In an interview with former President Jimmy Carter earlier this week, Marc Lamont Hill asked him to comment on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's open invitation to French Jews to come live in Israel. Carter responded:
My guess is that the Jews who live in France will maybe not take this as a positive step, and say the only way you can be safe is to go to Israel. I would guess that you may be, on the average, maybe safer in France than some places in Israel, but I’m not trying to make a judgment.
Now why would anyone think Carter was trying to judge Israel? He only blamed the Paris attacks on "the Palestinian problem" during an interview with Jon Stewart on Monday and has now said Israel should be brought before the ICC (along with Hamas) for war crimes.
