Former US President Jimmy Carter is set to meet with senior Hamas officials this week despite strong criticism from his own government. Is he right to do so?
Or are there some people you should never talk to? Is the only way to resolve conflict through communication and dialogue or is President Carter in danger of becoming an apologist for people who many see as terrorists. An aide to the former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has talked recently of the possibility of opening channels of communication with al Qaeda. Really?
