Look this up in your encyclopedia.
Israel was first settled by the tribe of Judah (fourth son of Jacob, aka, Israel) in c.1450 BCE after their exodus from Egypt with Moses It was founded as a nation in 1312 BCE, and imperialized in c.1000 BCE by King David. Moreover, it was recognized in 539 BCE by the Persian King, Cyrus the Great, as Judea, the homeland of the Ju's (dialectically, Jews). So, in 622 CE, what do Mohammedans claim in establishing a religion (a cult?) that is vengeful against all infidels-- most especially the Jews?
IMHO, the issue always has been, and unfortunately always will be, the Arabs "...refusing to recognize Israel." Albeit I don't know what Jimmy Carter is inhaling, maybe the Arabs inhale too much smoke in burning cannabis hemp over camel dung.
