According to none other than his son, Jack Carter, the Democratic nominee for Senate in Nevada.
In a statement released on Friday, the younger Carter said he disagreed with his father’s criticism in the German newspaper Der Spiegel, which included the claim that Israel does not have “any legal or moral justification for their massive bombing of the entire nation of Lebanon.”
“Simply put, this is an issue on which my father and I agree to disagree,” the younger Carter wrote in his statement. “Israel has every right to defend itself from the terrorists who seek to destroy her, and those who choose to harbor such terrorists.”
He added, “Israel is fighting for her life; she cannot lose.”
Jack Carter, an investment consultant in Las Vegas, handily won his Democratic primary last Tuesday, and will challenge Nevada’s incumbent Republican Sen. John Ensign in November.
