I say no. Hizballah was wrong to refuse to meet with that accomplished peacemaker, Mr. Carter, who so adeptly handled the Iranian revolution when he was President.
After all, how can a little friendly dialogue possibly hurt?
And it is a cliche here by now that one only makes peace with enemies, not friends.
A while back it was an issue whether Israel or the US should speak to Hamas.
Then it became an issue whether even Fatah should speak with Hamas.
Then it became an issue whether Obama should talk to Iran.
But it's not an issue for Hizballah to refuse to speak with Carter.
Maybe peacemaking really is a one way street after all?
