Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin met with former US president Jimmy Carter and others on the Elders mission on Thursday.

Rivlin told Carter that after his visits to Hamas senior official Khaled Mashal and Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, Israelis see him as "supporting Hamas and encouraging terror."

Carter responded that the purpose of his visit is to bring peace to the region, and meet with all sides involved in the conflict. He said his role is to listen, and not support.

The Elders is an organization of former senior diplomats.
