Hope

There have, of course, been cease fires in the Israel/Palestinian conflict before. The difference, and I hope it is a big difference, is that the Troll of RamallahTM remains dead.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas declared the ceasefire on Tuesday, calling it the best hope of reviving a U.S.-led "road map" to coexistence. All agreed that Sharon's plan to "disengage" from conflict by evacuating occupied Gaza this summer could launch the process if done in coordination with the Palestinians.

Now this is a scene we have seen before. The question is whether Abbas can deliver a degree of calm from the Palestinian militants. And that question is going to be resolved by the internal politics of those Palesinians.
