Below an excerpt from the article referring to the Geneva Initiaitve campaign:

 
Many Israelis believe they don't have a reliable Palestinian partner for peace, in part because they perceive Abbas as weak.
 
The Geneva Initiative, an Israeli-Palestinian group of former officials and negotiators who have come up with a detailed peace plan, tried to change that with a new PR campaign this week.
 
Palestinian officials recorded brief video clips aimed at the Israeli public. "I'm your partner," said Jibril Rajoub, a former West Bank security chief, speaking in Hebrew. "I think there is a historic opportunity, for us and for you."
