From Bill Harrop, former U.S. ambassador to Israel (shared with his permission):

Ray:

I find Sari Nusseibeh’s proposal most attractive in all respects but one: the referendum on the Israeli side should be matched by a referendum on the Palestinian side. The notion of an election rather than a referendum appears to be a manipulation to favor Mahmoud Abbas. Drop it. The referendum can not carry the added weight of settling the internal Palestinian rivalry, and should not attempt to do so. Hamas has already pledged to honor a referendum accepting a negotiated two state solution. A positive referendum on terms proposed to the two parties would go a long way toward healing the divisions.
