Carter says U.S. needs to push harder for peace
WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration must push harder -- and be evenhanded -- to revive sagging peace hopes in the Middle East, former President Carter said Monday.
In an Associated Press interview 25 years after the Camp David accords, Carter said Israel and the Palestinians had not only abandoned the U.S.-backed road map for peace but had violated it -- Israel by threatening the ''removal'' of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. He suggested the Bush administration was tilted toward Israel. http://www.arkcity.net/stories/091603/com_0003.shtml

U.S.: Iran giving haven to al-Qaida
The U.S. believes Iran is giving "safe haven" to al-Qaida leaders, some of whom are responsible for a series of bombings May 12 in Saudi Arabia, a State Department official told Congress on Wednesday.
Paula DeSutter, the assistant U.S. secretary of State for verification and compliance, described U.S. suspicions about al-Qaida in Iran to a hearing of a joint U.S.-Israeli legislative panel meeting in Washington.
Iran has previously reported capturing some al-Qaida members and said it intends either to try them or release them to their home countries. It has not, however, extradited them and U.S. officials have previously expressed uncertainty about Iran's actions and intentions.
"We believe that some elements within the Iranian regime have helped al-Qaida terrorists transit or find safe haven inside Iran," DeSutter told the U.S.-Israeli Joint Parliamentary Committee. http://www.sltrib.com/2003/Sep/09182003/nation_w/93438.asp
