Israel should definitely send its border plan, but not as a dictate by Erekat or Abbas. Likewise, the topics tackled should not be improvised, nor should Molcho have brought someone with him that Erekat perceives as part of a trap. Be kind, be transparent, be patient. Israelis and Palestinians cannot lose the opportunity just because there was a harsh exchange between the negotiators. There's Ahmed Qurea on the Palestinian side, and there's anybody the Israeli government picks up, if Molcho and Erekat can't overcome mistrust.
