Boycotts and freezes DO work, but they take time and need to be preserved. We know the economic boycott of Saddam Hussein DID work despite the hypocrisy and undermining of the Australians and others. They are the effective alternative to war. Carter is wrong, the freeze needs to continue, and the conditions set by the Quartet need to be maintained. Carter no more represents the Democratic Party today or is a spokesman for it than--well,... than the action of Paz Oil Company contracting to be the sole supplier to the Hamas-led PA represents the views of the Olmert government of Israel!
