Not quite the great communicator

Carter gets the brush-off. What else is he expecting?
Israel's top officials continued to brush off Jimmy Carter on Monday as he prepared to meet with Hamas chief Khaled Meshal, the first time a current or former U.S. president will have met with a recognized terrorist organization's leader.
Did Obama put you up to this, to prove the US can have discourse with terrorist leaders?
At a later press event, Carter said he hoped to help open talks between Hamas and U.S. leaders, saying Washington's policy of not meeting with people it labeled terrorists was counterproductive.

Carter said he wanted to become a "communicator" between Hamas and the United States.
Was he ever good at communicating with foreign leaders?
