Meeting Khaled Meshal
Well, not me, though I did translate a 13 page interview with him for UK Channel 4's in December. But it seems former President Carter is.
"I think someone should be meeting with Hamas..." Carter said on ABC this week.
"If Israel is ever going to find peace with justice concerning the relationship with their next-door neighbors, Hamas will have to be included in the process."
At least someone is willing to acknowledge that there is no ignoring them anymore if a meaningful and sustainable resolution is to be reached.
In their most recent report, the International Crisis Group found that "The policy of isolating Hamas and Gaza is bankrupt" and has in fact backfired.
Now I just wonder if Carter is going on his own accord or whether he was sent indirectly by his government as a "feeler" of sorts...
