Jimmy Carter on Middle East peace:
I don’t think that Israel has any legal or moral justification for their massive bombing of the entire nation of Lebanon. What happened is that Israel is holding almost 10,000 prisoners, so when the militants in Lebanon or in Gaza take one or two soldiers, Israel looks upon this as a justification for an attack on the civilian population of Lebanon and Gaza. I do not think that’s justified, no.
Jimmy Carter on the Amerian people:
Unfortunately, after Sept. 11, there was an outburst in America of intense suffering and patriotism…
Jimmy Carter on Castro:
He is two years younger than I am, so he’s not beyond hope.
Jimmy Carter on Jimmy Carter:

Fortunately, a more substantial portion agreed with Ronald Reagan in 1980. But how did Carter get elected once?
