Amy Winehouse biographer Chas Newkey-Burden writes:

Carol Gould is not just one of my favourite authors, but one of my favourite people. It is safe to say that warmth, wit and wisdom are qualities particularly well-represented among Americans and Jews, but even by these high standards she’s a star. As I discovered a few months ago, she is also a formidable debater. Don’t be fooled by that sweet smile, opponents.
Carol is also the only person I’ve ever whacked in the head with a vegetable, but more of that later…
I’m writing this post because she has written a fantastic book called Don’t Tread On Me: Anti-Americanism Abroad. It is a 21st century J’Accuse against the growth in anti-Americanism and its vile, incestuous sibling – antisemitism. The book is so much more than that, though. It is also a personal celebration of all that is great about America and Americans, a charge-sheet against the hypocrisy and envy that underpins the prejudice against them and a personal journal of a brave, plucky woman in strange times.
As I wrote in Not In My Name, the growth in anti-Americanism is undeniable and disturbing, but even I am surprised by the level of bigotry Carol has faced in these shores. She’s had an amazing life and I must say that much as I love my country, when someone like Carol feels so uncomfortable living here than we really have lost our way. The more people read books like hers, the more chance we have of getting back on track....

[Editor's Note: I know many friends are appalled I appear on the Ayatollahs' channel but I have the folowing to say:
1. The young men and women who work in the studios are keenly interested in my point of view.
2. Despite Ahmadinejad's views on Israel and his regime's attitude to women and gays Charlie Wolf and I agree to appear on these programmes because we are allowed to air our opposition and strong views. Some will say, 'Ah! That means OFCOM cannot take them off the air!' but I do not want these stations off the air: I know Iranian exiles who say they are grateful to have a satellite network on which they can see their homes and farms and get news from their native country. So:
On Sunday 14 November at 13:30 GMT on 'The LINK' on Press TV (UK channel 515 on Sky) an audience in London and a gathering of the homeless in Washington DC joined in a heated discussion about the fate of the homeless and repossessed of all social classes in Britain and the United States.
Our editor, American author Carol Gould ('Don't Tread on me : anti-Americanism Abroad') in London and journalist Roger von Hanwehr in New York joined the fray moderated by Joobin Zarvan in Teheran. Carol most recently appeared on the BBC World Service on 31st October and on Sky News 2 November.

Clinton Denies She Plans To Quit Race
Saturday February 23, 2008
Hillary Clinton has denied contemplating defeat in her White House bid, after analysts believed she had admitted looming failure.
On Thursday night, the senator paid a generous tribute to her Democratic rival Barack Obama - saying she was honoured to be there "no matter what happens" - following his 11 straight wins in nominating contests.
This prompted some commentators to claim the valedictory tone of her speech proved she was about to quit her quest to be the first woman president.
But speaking at a rally in Dallas, Texas, she has hit back, saying: "This is going to be a spirited election between now and March 4. I am thrilled at the depth and breadth of support I have across the state."
Debating on Sky News whether Senator Clinton could have executed her campaign in a better way, US journalist Carol Gould said she would have told her to keep former president and husband Bill out of the limelight.
"He has in many ways antagonised the crowds," she said. "I have a feeling that he's gone off on a tangent. He's often in places where she isn't.
"I hate to say this, but she should have had better control over him."
Yet Ms Gould also admitted: "We can all have 20:20 vision in hindsight. I think that they had such a shock when they lost Super Tuesday.
"No one would have thought they would have lost Super Tuesday in such a spectacular way, and they didn't really have a game plan after Super Tuesday."
Meanwhile, presumptive Republican nominee John McCain has been attempting to shrug off news reports that have connected him to corporate lobbyists and one, in the New York Times, that suggested he had had an improper relationship with a female lobbyist.
Other publications followed up the NY Times story with accounts of their own of McCain - who maintains a clean political image - in close ties with lobbyists.
The White House, which has mostly stayed on the sidelines in the presidential race, has come to Senator McCain's defence, suggesting the NY Times is biased against Republicans.
"I think a lot of people here in this building with experience in a couple campaigns have grown accustomed to the fact that during the course of a campaign... The New York Times does try to drop a bombshell on the Republican nominee," said White House spokesman Scott Stanzel.
