Adams discouraged comparisons between Ireland and the Middle East but said his experience in the Northern Ireland peace process proves that "dialogue works." Officials had said Tuesday that Adams would not be allowed into Gaza, becuase he planned to meet with Hamas officials. It was not clear why Israeli officials changed their mind.
