While acknowledging that he’d be willing to play a mediator’s role in the Arab-Israeli conflict if both sides, and the U.S. president, asked him to, Jimmy Carter opened a mild can of moral-authority whoop-ass on dubya the other day by pointing out that he (dubya) is unique among recent U.S. presidents in siding wholeheartedly with Israel in that conflict, rather than offering at least an illusion of even-handedness (which, granted, is fairly academic anyway, given the U.S.’s consistent role in funding the Israeli military machine throughout that period). In any event, Carter has since acknowleged that he doesn’t have a snowball’s chance of being asked to mediate anytime soon.
