Jimmy Carter makes the essential point that Israel alone faces a choice:

No matter what leaders the Palestinians might choose, how fervent American interest might be or how great the hatred and bloodshed might become, there remains one basic choice, and only the Israelis can make it:

Do we want permanent peace with all our neighbors, or do we want to retain our settlements in the occupied territories of the Palestinians?

The rest of the editorial is interesting for Carter's personal perspectives - and I didn't know that there were once Israeli settlements in the Sinai.
