Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Dan Gillerman doesn't like former President Jimmy Carter meddling in Israeli affairs.
Asked on C-SPAN's Washington Journal program to comment on Mr. Carter's opinion column in yesterday's Washington Post calling on Israel to withdraw from Lebanese territory and release its prisoners, the ambassador replied:
"I think that President Carter's appearances, op-eds, and speeches are an embarrassment. I think that they are an embarrassment to the great institution of the presidency. I mean, President Carter wasn't that great of a president to start with ... I really don't know what has happened to him over the last few years."
This must a miracle, the first honest diplomat on record.
