Former US President Jimmy Carter Calls Post-war Situation in the Gaza Strip 'intolerable'

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter says eight months after a bloody war in the Gaza Strip that the situation there is "intolerable."
Carter's delegation called off a planned visit to Gaza earlier this week, giving no explanation. Speaking Saturday, Carter says he is still determined to work for a Palestinian state. But he lamented that "not one destroyed house has been rebuilt" in Gaza since the war.
90-year-old, Carter, visited Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas but was shunned by Israeli leaders who long have considered him hostile to the Jewish state.
Although he brokered the first Israeli-Arab peace treaty during his presidency, Carter outraged many Israelis with his 2006 book "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid." He's also repeatedly reached out to Gaza's Islamic Hamas leaders, considered terrorists by much of the West.
