    Carter has been slamming the Bush admin laterly and I have to wonder about his motives. Is this his way to help pave the road to reconcilation with nations in the ME, is this political with the 08 elections in mind, is this pragmatism, or is this personal?

    I tend to think it's pragmatic and that for him the issue is personal [he was always highly focused on ME issues], but in spite of his well deserved good samaritan image, he is still a political animal.

    Carter may still be a political animal, but he is first and foremost an ethical man who cares deeply about injustice. We may examine his motivations (and we should), but I do not believe that he is inclined to lie.

    So, do you have a point?

    A frequent problem here, when hit-and-run posters fail to engage or to provide any food for thought.

    I think that Carter is trying to come to terms with the differences in treatment of Israel and Palestine by the US administration(s).

    If his consciousness is speaking, then to me he is a good person.

    As opposed to those that speak while they're unconscious?

    Or as opposed to those that let the voices buried deep in their subconscious come out to speak?

    He, he, he.

    NOt enoguh peanuts have been sold to the Palestinian terrorists as Carter would like have seen, and the Israelis prefer Persia Pistachios over Georgian peanuts.

    It began with the publication of his book 'Palestine Peace Not Apartheid' in Nov 2006 which presumably would have taken a year or two to research and write prior to publication so unless he was scheming well in advance it would seem he is speaking through personal conviction rather than political spin.
