Hopefully, this truce goes through, and the peace last, atleast for a while.
his really may be the start of something. If Sharon’s government can stay intact or even be replaced by a more progressive leader like Barak, there is a real change for the peace process to get back on track.
However, a truce with Israel, Yusef said, would be dependant on an end of the Israeli occupation of the territories, release of security prisoners and "elimination of Israeli violence." When asked which borders "occupation" was referring to, he said the borders of 1967, not 1948.
Yusef also called on the United States and the international community to reconsider their definition of Hamas a "terror organization."

same crap, different day.
The Palestinians acknowledge privately that many members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a violent group with ties to the ruling Fatah (news - web sites) movement, are members of the security forces who have not reported to their jobs during the past four years of fighting.
Ala'a Sanakra, an Al Aqsa leader in the West Bank city of Nablus, said the group is also considering a truce.
"We are watching the changes after Arafat's death. We haven't announced a truce from our side but we are exploring the future. If there is a real truce on the table, we will agree to it," he said.
