Dennis Shulman’s Statement Concerning Jimmy Carter and Hamas

Demarest, NJ – “As a Democrat and a proud supporter of Israel, I am deeply disturbed by President Carter’s decision to treat terrorist leaders like Khalid Meshaal as if they are dignitaries,” said Shulman. “I support efforts to promote peace, but I see no signs that elevating Hamas before it renounces terrorism and its opposition to the very existence of Israel will help bring about peace.”


Dr. Dennis Shulman has gained international recognition for his 30 years of work as a psychologist, educator, and author. An ordained rabbi for five years and blind since childhood, he has lived in New Jersey’s Fifth District for more than 25 years with his wife, Dr. Pamela Tropper, an obstetrician. They have two adult daughters.
