Writing in Algemeiner, Alab Dershowitz outlines the peace plan he puto to Netanyahu and Abbas.
My proposal to President Abbas was to have the Palestinian Authority agree to sit down and begin negotiations before any freeze began, if the Israelis would agree to begin a freeze only after the negotiations commenced in good faith.

And the Palestinians would get what they wanted: a settlement freeze while the negotiations continued in good faith.
Eetta Prince-Gibson of Tablet talks to American-born Israelis about their choices for November 6.

The enthusiastic turnout they’ve ginned up has made some American-Israelis wonder whether they should be voting at all.
