Jimmy Carter says Israeli-Palestinian conflict 'one of the origins' of Islamist violence

Muslim anger over the festering Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the contributing causes of the kind of Islamist-inspired terrorism that claimed the lives of 20 people in France last week, former president Jimmy Carter told Jon Stewart of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show.
