Quartet members plan to visit Jerusalem and Ramallah on Monday in an effort to restart peace talks. A variety of conciliatory formulas have been explored by some of its members — the US, UN, EU and Russia — which includes Palestinian recognition of Israel as the homeland for the Jewish people, in exchange for a settlement freeze. An alternative formula asks the Palestinians to drop their demand for a settlement freeze in exchange for acceptable language on the borders of a two state solution.
