The George Washington University chapter of Young Americas Foundation will protest former President Jimmy Carters appearance at its campus Wednesday, specifically opposed, it says, to “his stances on Israel, his hypocrisy regarding human rights and his anti-American view of the fall of the Berlin Wall.” Mr. Carter is coming to the university to read from his recently published memoir.

“It is important for students to look back upon the mistakes of the past so we dont repeat them again. I also find it very disappointing that GW, a school with a large Jewish population, has decided to host such an anti-Israel speaker,” said Travis Korson, president of the student group.
