It is indeed painful to see Mr Carter - a man I have long admired - being taken in by an anti-Israel point of view. He really should ask himself not whether Gaza is a 'walled in ghetto' - but how it came to be that way. Israel withdrew from Gaza in good faith, and has received rocket barrages in return. He really should ask himself why the momentum toward peace has slowed to a crawl. Israel - signatory to peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, and the Oslo Accords with the PLO - is not the impediment. The real impediment? Too many Palestinians simply remain irreconcilled to Israel's existence - and too many Westerners, including Mr Carter, are duped by them. One need only look at the emblem of the 'Palestine Solidarity Campaign' - to which a number of left-wing film stars and politicos belong - to realise this (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/1/1e/PSC_logo.jpg/180px-PSC_logo.jpg).
