Jimmy Carter "stands firm"

Cor! this news just in from Ha'aretz is exciting. Under the headline, Carter stands firm on apartheid accusations against Israel:
He said he was not accusing Israel of racism nor referring to its treatment of Arabs within the country. "I defined apartheid very carefully as the forced segregation by one people of another on their own land," he said.
So while he stands firm on his apartheid analogy regarding the West Bank and Gaza, no doubt he stands equally firm on his stated belief that Israel is a "wonderful democracy."
