Middle East peace w/Jimmy Carter

Worked at an event this week about Middle East peace at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace with “The Elders” a group of former world leaders working to bring diplomatic solutions to world problems. Here is Jimmy Carter along with the former president of Finland and former foreign minister of Algeria.
