Carter & the Treaty

Reader comment on item: Rethinking the Egypt-Israel "Peace" Treaty

Submitted by Ted Gruen (United States), Nov 21, 2006 at 09:38

To this day, Jimmy Carter sees the Egypt-Israel treaty as the glory and ornament of not only of Arab-Israel diplomacy, but of his presidency. He believes that Israel has been undermining the treaty, nay, peace in general, ever since he made the comment to the effect that whereas Sadat trusted him too much, Begin wouldn't trust him enough.

Jimmy Carter, an unknown, an underdog, and a so-called grass-roots reformist without much fresh to offer beside the promise of breaking the mold on all sorts of issues, will hopefully not be the model for the person who will replace George Bush after the 2008 election.
