Former American President Jimmy Carter has sought every possible opportunity to defame the Jewish State and endeavored to challenge its right to exist.

In 2011, a lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against the former President over his representations on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in his 2006 book “Palestine, Peace Not Apartheid.” The five plaintiffs are seeking $5 million.

The lawsuit alleges that Carter and Simon & Shuster violated New York consumer protection laws and common law principles by engaging in deceptive acts in the course of conducting business and for promoting the book as a work of non-fiction.

The plaintiffs are Stephen Unterberg, Susan Eckman, Ryan Shuman, Danica Bernard, and Steven Tabak, who are the named plaintiffs as part of a class action on behalf of everyone who purchased the book.
