Former US President Jimmy Carter is planning a rare meeting with a settler leader in the West Bank this weekend. A statement from his Carter Center said he would see Gush Etzion Regional Council head Shaul Goldstein in his West Bank home on Sunday. Carter observed this week's Lebanese election and plans meetings in Israel and the West Bank over the weekend. In the past he has strongly backed Palestinian aspirations for a state and spoken out against Jewish settlements in the West Bank, calling them illegal and an obstacle to peace. The statement Wednesday said Carter would also meet Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, PA Prime Minister Salaam Fayad and President Shimon Peres.
