President Trump's special envoy for Middle East peace said today that the forthcoming White House peace plan won't be "a sell out" for the Palestinians.

Between the lines: With the end of the Israeli elections, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's victory, the release of the White House peace plan could be imminent. Jason Greenblatt's public message was directed at the Palestinian leadership in an attempt to stress that the plan won't be as bad as they fear.

Why it matters: The Palestinians have boycotted the Trump administration since December 2017 over the president's Jerusalem embassy announcement, but the White House still hopes they'll change course after seeing the peace plan. The Palestinian President said he will be ready to engage if the plan includes a Palestinian state with a capital in East Jerusalem.

What he's saying: Greenblatt tweeted today, "To the [Palestinian Authority]: Our plan will greatly improve Palestinian lives & create something very different than what exists. It’s a realistic plan to thrive/prosper even if it means compromises. It’s not a 'sell out' — if the plan isn’t realistic, no one can deliver it. The Palestinian future is in your hands — we hope you use your power wisely and in a way that helps Palestinians live happier and better lives. It’s time for them to thrive."

  • Netanyahu's nationalistic rhetoric on the campaign trail won't help the White House sell any peace plan the Palestinians might consider. He pledged to annex Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank if re-elected.

What's next: The White House peace plan isn't expected to be published until at least mid-June. The exact date will be influenced by the formation of the new Israeli government, the Jewish holiday of Passover, the Muslim month of Ramadan and other national days on both sides.

Antifa may be a focus on the right, but it's hard to find in the court system.

Why it matters: Very few of the people charged in this summer's protests and riots appear to be affiliated with highly organized extremist groups, reports AP.

The Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC associated with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, raised more than twice as much this September as it did two years ago, according to an FEC filing that will go live Tuesday night.

By the numbers: The SLF raised $92 million in September, spent $105 million, and ended the month with $113 million cash on hand, as Republicans work to maintain their majority on Nov. 3.

The evolution of HR

Before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, human resources jobs were on the automation chopping block. Now they're essential.

The big picture: HR departments across the world have pulled off the incredible feat of turning companies from in-person to remote overnight, and as the pandemic continues to determine the future of work, HR has been elevated from a back-office function to a C-suite conversation.
