Subject: RE: BS: Well,well. Mid East Cease Fire
Absolutely not, mary. I agree there is hope for the first time in a long time with the war between Israel and the Palestinians. I believe Abbas will be good for peace negotiations. I believe we will eventually see a ceasefire that holds, but this one may not be it, because Hammas hasn't been brought into the negotiations at this point. That will be all right for a short period of time, but not in the long haul. Any permanent ceasefire, like any permanent peace, will have to include Hammas.
