"My primary feeling today is one of grief and despair and an element of anger when I see the destruction perpetrated against innocent people," Carter said as he toured the impoverished territory. "Tragically, the international community too often ignores the cries for help and the citizens of Palestine are treated more like animals than like human beings," he said.

"The starving of 1.5 million human beings of the necessities of life -- never before in history has a large community like this been savaged by bombs and missiles and then denied the means to repair itself," Carter said at a UN school graduation ceremony in Gaza City.

Former US President Jimmy Carter has said he had to "hold back tears" while viewing destruction on a visit to Gaza.

This is really strong words from a high profile important person such as Former President Carter. I hope Palestian and Israel both take heed to the advise and become peacefull.
