Former President Jimmy Carter said Thursday that Israel's operation in Gaza has been disproportionate to rocket attacks on Israel but could result in new efforts for a long-term Middle East peace plan. Carter told The Associated Press in a phone interview Thursday that although animosity toward Israel in the Arab world "has probably increased dramatically," there may be renewed interest among European leaders in finding a peaceful settlement.
