Talking to the enemy

How very disappointed I was to read Max Kleinman’s comments from his op-ed in the Star-Ledger regarding Iran (“Local leadership fears any deal easing sanctions on Iranians,” Nov. 21).

There has to be a starting point for peace somewhere, whether with Iran or the Palestinians. When the United States was fighting the Cold War, we communicated with the USSR and China despite our differences. The countries that we cut off communication with, Cuba, North Korea, and now Iran and Syria, are the only countries that we still have intractable differences with. The key to problem solving will always be communication, not sanctions.
