Jimmy Carter Still Flapping His Gums
“At this moment, there is zero chance of the two-state solution,” said Jimmy Carter, giving his bleakest pronouncement yet on the Israeli-Palestinian deadlock to which he devoted much effort while President of the United States, and even more time since then.
“These are the worst prospects for peace between Israel and the Palestinians for years,” he said, adding that he didn’t think that Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s Prime Minister, “has any intention” of making progress towards the goal, the thrust of international efforts for decades, of the creation of a separate state for the Palestinians alongside Israel.
Former US president Jimmy Carter is warning that the two-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict “is being overtaken by a one-state reality which will have dire consequences for Israel in the long-term.”
In other words, in 2015, Carter claimed there was no chance of a two-state solution. Now, almost 3 years later, with Binyamin Netanyahu still Israel’s Prime Minister, the chances of a two-state solution have miraculously increased, since now his prognosis is “being overtaken by a one-state reality.”
In other words, Jimmy Carter is full of excrement. But we already knew that.
