Jimmy Carter Claims Israel Creating ‘Catastrophic’ Situation With Palestinians
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said Monday during a visit to Jerusalem that the prospect of an Israel-Palestinian peace accord is “vanishing,” blaming Israeli settlement of the West Bank.
Carter, a longtime critic of Israeli policies, called the current situation “catastrophic” and blamed Israel for the growing isolation of east Jerusalem from the West Bank. He said a Palestinian state has become “unviable.”
“We’ve reached a crisis stage,” said Carter, 88. “The two-state solution is the only realistic path to peace and security for Israel and the Palestinians.”
Carter is currently on a two-day visit leading a delegation known as the “The Elders,” which includes the former prime minister of Norway and the former president of Ireland. The group met with Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
But they didn’t meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Carter said that the delegation didn’t request a meeting because they haven’t been granted meetings on previous visits.
The Elders — yeah, people like Carter, Kofi Annan (Oil for Food scandal with his son Kojo), Communist Nelson Mandela. At least Desmond Tutu is a decent human being — wonder why he has gotten involved with this gaggle of morons.Posted by DaveH at October 22, 2012 09:13 PM
