  •  What exactly is wrong with Carter? (3+ / 0-)

    "Don't gop the way of Carter."
    Jimmy Carter is the only US president that delivered peace between Israel and it's neighbors:

    Do you deny that the resulting peace has been good for Israel?

    He wants to see peace between Israel and Palestine realized as well. Apparently hardliners don't like that idea very much and hence resort to smearing Carter.

    "Guys like my father-in-law (retiree who spends 6 months in Florida) won't vote for Obama unless he knows he will be a friend of Israel."

    President Carter is a humaniratian of Gandhian stature who is a friend of Israel as well as a friend of peace.

    •  You are ignoring Clinton (0+ / 0-)


      •  he worked hard (0+ / 0-)

        but couldn't complete the process. Since after 2000, the Clintons have decidedly taken a turn away from the previous efforts by WJC towards peace.

          1. You are still ignoring the final peace agreement between Israel and Jordan which was negotiated and signed under Clinton.
          1. The Israelis and Palestinians signed the Oslo agreement and the Hebron agreement under Clinton.  While not final settlement of the total issue, these were tremendous accomplishments.

            fair enough, but the Egypt peace treaty remains the most significant one among those successfully realized.

              Interestingly, I would say it was both the easiest and the hardest to achieve.  It was the hardest to achieve because at that time it was difficult to just get the sides to talk to each other.  It was the easiest to achieve because the Sinai represents miles upon miles of demilitarized desert that provides a buffer between the two countries.  Today's challenges are much greater because Syria and the Palestinians live in direct proximity to the Israelis and there isn't the possibility of the "Sinai buffer."  Furthermore, the buffer isn't as effective becuase of the constant use of medium range missiles.
