Jimmy Carter to Marvin Hier: Your No Simon Wiesenthal The Simon Wiesenthal Center sent President Carter a petition signed by 25,000 people blasting his book. In response, Carter sent Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean of the SWC, saying: “I don’t believe that Simon Wiesenthal would have resorted to falsehood and slander to raise funds.”
Maybe. But one thing Carter should have known: The Simon Wiesenthal Center would certainly resort to publicizing the former president’s letter to raise funds.
