The talks, with the U.S., Britain, China, Russia, France and Germany on one side of the table and Iran on the other, were not going well, an Iranian source quoted by European news agencies said Monday afternoon.

He strikes me as a very nice man. As do many public people. I don't know why anyone would listen to him.
Can't you? It seems to work for most politicians. Heck, it also worked for Peres.
He’s probably the poster boy for the hypothesis that the world is made of fools.
Not sure your reasons; but from my perspective; seems more than reasonable to allow that as a convert from Islam - to - Christianity; he has a great deal to say.
The fact that he shares his journey and his message at grave risk; all the more impressive; and, given our times and our enemies; important; as well.
