Carter's Book: Frank Speech About Israel-Palestine?

So says this CAIR News Brief. Follow this link to read the entire text of the editorial. Forgive me if I don't agree with this editorial's assessment.
President Carter has done what few American politicians have dared to do: speak frankly about the Israel-Palestine conflict. He has done this nation, and the cause of peace, an enormous service by focusing attention on what he calls "the abominable oppression and persecution in the occupied Palestinian territories, with a rigid system of required passes and strict segregation between Palestine's citizens and Jewish settlers in the West Bank."
What the editorialist doesn't talk about is that Israeli policies would change if terrorist groups like Hamas and al-Aqsa and Fatah didn't use those areas for initiating terrorist attacks from. What the editorialist doesn't bother considering is that Israel established policies designed to protect Israelis. But that's of little or no consequence to this editorialist, or CAIR for that matter.
In Israel's history, no Arab-led party has ever been asked to join a coalition government. And, among scores of Jewish ministers, there has only ever been one Arab minister, of junior rank.
Might this history have something to do with the fact that Arab-led parties couldn't be trusted to work as part of the team in strengthening Israel's right to exist?

I'd further suggest that Carter hasn't contributed anything meaningful to the Israeli-Palestinian debate because he's relied on revisionist history and pure fantasy. I'd support that with the fact that he isn't even man enough to debate Alan Dershowitz on the subject. If Carter had the truth on his side, he'd welcome a debate so that he could win the argument. He won't do that because he knows he'd get taken to the proverbial woodshed by Prof. Dershowitz.

Jimmy Carter doesn't know the difference between revisionist history and the truth.
