Dalai Lama may meet Hamas....
I hope he has smart advisors who can council him NOT to meet with any member of Hamas.
Even as envoys of the Dalai Lama arrived in China Wednesday to resume talks between the estranged groups, the Dalai Lama was urging dialogue
between the Palestinian and Israeli people.
"Now the time has come to try and find dialogue through mutual respect," said the Dalai Lama, who spoke with journalists in Jerusalem several hours after arriving in Israel for his third trip to the region. "We must all learn to appreciate each other. We must talk with each other."
While his chief recommendation for advancing the peace process was a resumed dialogue, the Dalai Lama hesitated over whether Israel should initiate talks with Hamas.
"It is too early to tell… perhaps I must say that we should wait and see," he told the Jerusalem Post. While the Dalai Lama will spend the majority of his five-day visit touring Israel, on Sunday he will meet with Palestinians in Bethlehem. "If some Hamas people were [to] join then I am happy to see them."
