Hamas claimed that former US president Jimmy Carter urged the movement in a meeting this week to recognize the Arab peace initiative and accept the two-state solution, and thereby bypass the Quartet conditions of forswearing terrorism, recognizing Israel and accepting previous PLO agreements with Israel. The London-based A Sharq Alawsat newspaper claimed Saturday that Carter stressed that agreeing to the proposal would be a key toward dialogue with the US and a removal of the political and economic embargoes.
