As quoted in the Jerusalem Post article, Yossi Beilin said (published 10th November, 2020):
“Saeb believed in the discourse, had never been involved in violence, and even sought to establish his state alongside the State of Israel, in the spirit of the Geneva Initiative. He educated his children in peace and made sure to send them to summer camps with Israeli children.”
“It was not always easy to hear his views, but he was always attentive to hear other opinions. In recent years, he felt despair from the Israeli leadership, but did not lose hope for change. For him, the change will come too late.”
