Former President Jimmy Carter says that Israel will face a "catastrophe" unless it revives the Mideast peace process and establishes an independent Palestinian state. Carter pointed out in an interview with The Associated Press on Monday that Arabs will outnumber Jews in the Holy Land in the foreseeable future. "If we look toward a one-state solution, which seems to be the trend, I hope not inexorable, it would be a catastrophe for Israel," Carter said. Such a situation would mean Israel would have to expel many Palestinians, or keep them but deprive them of equal voting rights, or give them equal voting rights, which would give the Palestinians a majority. "And you would no longer have a Jewish state," Carter said.
