 WORDS FOR FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES  JIMMY CARTER  FROM HIS NEW BOOK "WE CAN HAVE PEACE IN THE HOLY LAND".

                       FOR MORE THAN THREE DECADES,A MAJOR FOCUS OF MY PERSONAL INTERESTS AND POLITICAL ACTIVITIES HAS BEEN TO HELP END THE CONFLIT AMONG ISRAELIS AND THEIR NEIGHBORS.

              

       DESPITE THE RECENT LACK OF PROGRESS,I SEE THIS AS A UNIQUE TIME FOR HOPE,NOT DESPAIR.THE OUTLINES OF A PEACE AGREEMENT ARE CLEAR AND HAVE BROAD INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT.THERE IS A REMARKABLE COMPATIBILITY AMONG PERTINENT UNITED NATIONS RESOLUTIONS,PREVIOUS PEACE AGREEMENTS REACHED AT CAMP DAVID AND IN OSLO,THE PUBLICLY DECLARED POLICY OF THE UNITED STATES,THE GENEVA ACCORD,KEY GOALS OF THE INTERNATIONAL QUARTET'S ROADMAP FOR PEACE AND TENTATIVE PROPOSALS MADE BY ALL ARABS NATIONS FOR RECONCILIATION WITH ISRAEL.PERHAPS MOST IMPORTANT THERE IS AN OVERWHELMING COMMON DESIRE  FOR PEACEFUL AND PROSPEROUS LIVES AMONG THE CITIZENS OF ISRAEL PALESTINE LEBANON JORDAN AND EGYPT.TENTATIVE STEPS ARE BEING TAKEN OR CONTEMPLATED BY THESE PLAYERS,ALL WAITING TO BE CONSUMMATED WITH AMERICAN LEADERSHIP.

                    WE ALREADY HAVE A FIRM PROMISE FROM OUR NEW PRESIDENT THAT HE WILL MAKE A PERSONAL EFFORT FOR MIDDLE EAST PEACE FROM THE BEGINNING OF HIS ADMINISTRATION.THE UNITED STATES WILL FIND ALL PARTIES TO THE CONFLIT AND LEADERS OF OTHER NATIONS EAGER TO SUPPORT STRONG,FAIR,AND PERSISTENT LEADERSHIP FROM WASHINGHTON.THIS WILL NOT BE EASY.EVERYONE WHO ENGAGES IN MIDDLEEAST PEACEMAKING IS BOUND TO MAKE MISTAKES AND SUFFER FRUSTRATIONS.EVERYONE MUST OVERCOME THE PRESENCE OF HATRED AND FANATICISM AND THE MEMORIES OF HORRIBLE TRAGEDIES.EVERYONE MUST FACE PAINFUL CHOICES AND FAILURES IN NEGOTIATIONS.

NEVERTHELESS,I AM CONVINCED THAT THE TIME IS RIPE FOR PEACE IN THE REGION.

DEAR MLFCHAM MEMBERS

                   I HOPE THAT PLAN WILL WORK AND I'M TOTALLY POSITIVE SAYING "YES WE CAN".

SALAM
