• The United States admitted failure in persuading Israel to an additional 90-day construction freeze to get direct talks up again and the likely futility of talks at this point. [NYT]

• Next? Possibly more “proximity talks,” that is, U.S.-mediated indirect negotiations. Administration officials are meeting with both sides this week. [Haaretz]

• A top aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas broadly questioned the United States’s ability to broker peace. [JPost]
