It is now wonder Jimmy Carter saw mass defections from his staff when his last book came out. It's easy to criticize Israel's actions over time and in retrospect - as Carter has done. But he implicitly makes it seem like "Palestinians" can be trusted to act like adults more than Israel. Easier still if you ignore the Palestinian's actions and inability or unwillingness to control the terrorists within its borders. The elected government is unable to even talk. Why then is there support for this group to have a nation when they cannot even show interim signs of viability? Sadder that it is hopeless.
