Hamas Suicide Attack Doesn't Stop Carter From Meeting With Meshaal Again

The day after Jimmy Carter met with Khaled Meshaal, there was a suicide bombing at Kerem Shalom, a border crossing between Israel and Gaza, injured 13 IDF soldiers killing only three of the four suicide bombers. The fourth one remains at large. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said there will be more attacks to come. You would think this might give Carter pause about meeting with Hamas again. But we're talking about Carter here. You guessed it. Carter met again today with Meshaal and his deputy, Moussa Abu Marzouk, in Damascus. It is interesting the attack should take place at Kerem Shalom because that is where Corporal Gilad Shalit was kidnapped in July 2006. It has been widely reported that Shalit's fate has been discussed between the two. A suicide bombing at Kerem Shalom doesn't exactly indicate much good will come of this chat.
