James Earl Carter to be honored by Cardozo. People very mad at this. Yay Ugliness!

You may have already heard but former president Jimmy Carter will get some polite applause on April 10. He's going to receive the International Advocate for Peace Award from the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution.  Naturally lots of Jews are very mad about this and they're ganging up on Cardozo, threatening to withhold financial support and so on*.

Only slow down. I may be Internet impaired, but I can't find any mention on the Cardozo website of this event, which suggests rather strongly that Cardoza isn't sponsoring it. (It looks like the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution is running this.) If so, why are the angry Jews wasting their time? If it isn't an official Cardoza event, well, then Academic Freedom and have a nice day. A law school isn't going to stomp on anyone's right to free expression so all you're doing is drawing attention to the event.  And, in case you haven't yet realized it, schools and other groups only honor people for two reasons: Money and Attention.

So, well done Angry Jews. You're giving the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution exactly what it wants, while wasting your political capital applying pressure on organizations  (YU and Cardozo) that can do absolutely nothing about it.

*Fun thought: I wonder how many of these anti Carter Jews run to anti-zionist rebbes for magic blessings? Not many, I bet, but at the same time I am sure more than a few of them do. An anti Cardozo diatribe is currently on the YWN, and this is the same site that records every move made by e.g. the Satmar rebbe in loving detail

I think thаt what you cоmposed made a bunch of sense.
But, whаt about this? what if yοu ωere tо create a awеsοme рοѕt title?
I am not sауіng your information
isn't good., however suppose you added a headline to maybe get a person'ѕ attention?

Ι meаn "James Earl Carter to be honored by Cardozo. People very mad at this. Yay Ugliness!" is kinda vаnіlla.
You οught tο glancе at Yahoo's home page and see how they create article headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about what you've got
to say. Juѕt my opinion, it ωould bгing your poѕts a little bit more intегesting.
