CHIEF TROUBLEMAKER arriving here in the context of Palestine week. What will he do?

Carter heading to Israel, Gaza

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Jimmy Carter will visit Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

The former U.S. president was in Lebanon to monitor Sunday's elections. Media have said that he will continue this week to Syria, Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.

Some accounts say the tour will be private, while others say he will be promoting peace moves in the wake of last week's address to the Muslim world by President Obama.

Carter in the past has angered Israel with what is perceived as his pro-Palestinian tilt. He also has brokered communications between Gilad Shalit, the Israeli soldier held captive in Gaza by Hamas terrorists, and Shalit's family. The Jerusalem Post said that Carter would meet with Israeli President Shimon Peres; the two are old friends.
