Well, we know one person who hasn't changed

Reader comment on item: The Blood of Abraham

We all know the same old Jimmy Carter, the mediocre and overambitious president, has written his new book Peace not Apartheid. I haven't read either of his writings, but they sound pretty similar.

If Pipes' theory that Carter is staking his claims on his one legacy, then it is pathetic that he is still promoting it 20 years later, given that his one treaty with Egypt was relatively successful and that his current adventures can only worsen his legacy. Pipes is a keen writer, and what he wrote in this review resonates today.

I have read other articles of his from the 1980s during the past few years with the increase in terrorism in markets and transporation centers. Pipes' writings could not have been more prophetic.

I hope the mainstream press and Western political leadership begins to trust him more.
