What Was Jimmy Carter’s Proposal to Hamas?

After meeting with three different sets of Hamas leaders — in Damascus, Ramallah, and Gaza — Jimmy Carter posted a “Trip Report” last week describing his meetings. He said he met with Khaled Meshaal and other Hamas leaders in Damascus and “left written proposals for them to consider.” Two days later he met with Hamas legislators in Ramallah: “They had a copy of the proposal I had made to Meshaal in Damascus and we discussed its wording.” Three days after that, he went to Gaza and “had extensive meetings with Prime Minister [Ismail] Haniya” that the New York Times reported lasted three hours.
