Former President Jimmy Carter continues to make biased remarks about Israel, despite a public apology via JTA late last year, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

In an Op-Ed distributed Monday, ADL National Director Abe Foxman charged that "Rather than focusing on Israel as the only democracy in the region, the one that protects individual rights, including for women and gays, through the rule of law and that has been under siege from the Arab world since its birth, Mr. Carter views the Jewish state through the prism of Western guilt for centuries of racism, colonialism and supremacist ideas."

Foxman pointed to Carter's recent visit to the Middle East with a delegation of The Elders in which "The majority and intensity of his criticisms ... were directed at Israel."
