With the current conflict in the Middle East and it seeming not to let up what do think will happen? here is some news articles and statements I have researched.

In this article, the Israeli and Lebanese goverments have seemed to come to an ease and let down of arms in the conflict, but as we know it is still going on.

A ceasefire agreement has been stated by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, that if both captured Israeli soldiers and all of Hezbollah forces are controlled with Lebanese military in control of the south all attacks will cease. Israel is still trying to subdue the fighting from attacks from the Hezbollah, and has all intentions to continue until the Hezbollah are abolished. As of now the rocket attacks on Israel have now ceased, and deployment of Lebanese forces is staged across the southern border in action of a ceasefire agreement.
JERUSALEM - Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Monday the fighting in Lebanon would end when the two Israeli soldiers captured by Hezbollah guerrillas were freed, rocket attacks on
Israel were stopped, and the Lebanese army was deployed along the border.

"We are not looking for war or direct conflict, but if necessary we will not be frightened by it," Olmert said.

"We will struggle for the conditions set by the international community," Olmert told the Israeli parliament.

"Return of the hostages ... a full ceasefire, deployment of the Lebanese army in all southern Lebanon and the disarming of Hizbollah."

Delivering an impassioned speech to parliament after six days of fighting with Lebanon, Olmert said Israel would have no mercy on militants who attack its cities with rockets, and he pledged to destroy terrorist infrastructure.

"We shall seek out every installation, hit every terrorist helping to attack Israeli citizens, destroy all the terrorist infrastructure, in every place. We shall continue this until Hezbollah does the basic and fair things required of it by every civilized person," he said in his first major address since the fighting in Lebanon began last week.

Israel seems here to be willing to comply with the U.N. on a no violence statement. Still the U.N. has not replied to the recent statement by the Prime Minister, as of now Israel is looking at having international help in the attacks on their country, and still in Lebanon has had many civilians die from Israeli attacks. The ceasefire agreement would be excellent for both of the countries and the preservation of life. The question is now, will Hezbollah forces be able to be subdued?

Israel will not allow any militants to fire rockets on their country and neither will allow them to go on without being punished. For now Lebanon has reacted with forces being deployed to the border. As of 200 Lebanese civilians and military men are dead and 24 Israelis also dead, there seems to be a pause in the current conflict. Over the six day conflict now there is light of hope for both of the countries and the world can be at ease for now.

Here the UN had given a statement for international help on Israels behalf, even knowing the Israelis had the upper hand.

In St. Petersburg Russia, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and British Prime Minister Tony Blair call for the arms and deployment of international troops to Israel to help with the bombardment attacks from the Hezbollah. The facts are stated that nothing will end with just Israel and Lebanon fighting it out. There has to be an outside force to help with Israel against the Hezbollah. The leaders of the U.N. feel also this will be the best call to the conflict yet.

original news source:
ST. PETERSBURG, Russia - British Prime Minister
Tony Blair and U.N. Secretary-General
Kofi Annan called Monday for the deployment of international forces to stop the bombardment of Israel.

"The blunt reality is that this violence is not going to stop unless we create the conditions for the cessation of violence," Blair said after talks with Annan on the margins of the Group of Eight summit. "The only way is if we have a deployment of international forces that can stop bombardment coming into Israel."

Annan appealed to Israel to abide by international law, spare civilian lives and infrastructure.

He also said that the United Nations was considering evacuation plans for U.N. dependents from Lebanon, while Blair said Britain was looking at the possibility of creating an air bridge for its citizens.

The mobilization of troops has not begun as of yet, but the call for help on Israel’s behalf is now stated. The current situation in the Middle East is holding a significant imbalance on the rest of the world. It is the U.N. to mandate these laws and help sustain peace while also protecting those which stand with the U.N. and defending civilians and infrastructure. The majority and main view of the U.N. is to condemn violence, and as of here there will to do so is tried. With the U.N. also dealing with the current North Korean problems, there mandate is to deal with the current conflict of the Lebanese and Israeli governments for the sake of human life.

So what do you all think what will happen, what or how is this battle going to end?

Personally, i think stubbornness and pride have the upper hand in this situation.

Ultimately it's going to end up with the U.S. screwing up in Iran and the global elite (Rotschilds' Rockefellers, Bilderberg members) having more power over us (via the U.N.)

It's a looooong stretch, I know... And right now I can't prove it yet.

*Puts tinfoil hat on*

if israel turn away now, the arab terror groups will just be seen as heros, what was the point in the first place of doing this. israel has wrecked lebanon countless times, this never stops.

what was the point of wrecking the whole country, if they stop now the terror groups will just get more of a hold on lebanon because of all the hatred that israel has caused now.

i am sure alot of israeli people want this thing finished and they may see this condition as a sign of softness.

this situation will never be fixed if israel only goes so far everytime. what is the point.

at wiki, it talks abou tthe hezbollah, hizbollah or what evr they have been after Israel for some time now----

Original source wikipedia:

Hezbollah or Hizbollah/Hizbullah[1] (Arabic ‮حزب الله‬, meaning Party of God) is a governmental and militant Lebanese Islamist group, with a military arm and a civilian arm, founded in 1982 to fight the Israeli Defense Forces who occupied southern Lebanon until the year 2000.[2] Its leader is Hassan Nasrallah.

Hezbollah was "inspired by the success of the Iranian Revolution"[3] and was formed primarily to wage war (both defensive and offensive) against Israel.[4] Hezbollah's political platform has consistently called for the destruction of Israel.[5] The United States and Israel say that Hezbollah has received financial and political assistance, as well as weapons and training, from Iran and Syria.[6] Syria says it supports Hezbollah, but denies supplying it with weapons.[7] Along with the Amal movement, Hezbollah is the main political party and militant organization representing the Shia community, Lebanon's largest religious bloc[8]. Founded with the aid of Iran and funded by it[7], Hezbollah follows the distinctly Shiite Islamist ideology developed by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran[citation needed].

so for these terriosts as andy said, it is just a heroic act to take out Israel, they are raised to do this.

With Iran having such a close tie with Hezzbulah, the timing of Hezzbulah's starting of this makes me a little wary. Notice what hasn't been talked about in the news much since this has all started? Iranian and NK nukes. I think this was orchestrated by Iran to take some of the heat off for a while. Give the US another crisis to work on instead.

no matter how the israelis try to use the news to push this, Hizbullah will be seen as heros to the islamic world just for pushing israel this much. israel is in a lose - lose situation if they pull out before destoying Hizbullah completely.

i know its hard but like i said above, the israeli people also will view there government as weak if they walk away again without stopping these groups completely.

just my two cents.

You could be right about that hogtie for sure.

But its so crazy, Hezbollah claims this is only the start and Israel will now not stop untill all Hezbollah is destroyed.

It is going to get bad over there, Hezbollah seems to keep pushing Israel buttons to get Israel to launch heavier attacks into Lebanon only to probably get more countries in on attacking Israel.

BBC - July 17, 2006

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says the attacks on Lebanon will be kept up until two captured soldiers are freed.

Are they still alive? What happens if they aren't?

That is exactly it, I can just see it now, Hezbollah tries to play off killing the Israeli soldiers, Now Israel is launching a full scale attack into the country of Lebanon, then from that Syria and Iran jump in on the chance to hit up Israel a little bit. This is going or could turn out very bad.
