Islamic Jihad and Aksa Martyrs Brigades Accept Truce

leave a comment »

From The Jerusalem Post: “Groups accept temporary truce: Islamic Jihad and Aksa Martyrs Brigades leaders in the West Bank said Monday they would unilaterally cease all attacks in Israel for 60 days in order to help facilitate elections for Palestinian Authority chairman, slated for January 9.”

I would wager that atleast one attack, initiated by these groups, will succeed before January 9. If I am wrong, and particularly if I am wrong for reasons other than excellent IDF security, then my hope for a lasting peace will be substantially raised. In other news, the Palestinian Authority is banning guns, except for its security forces. Even though armed Palestinians frighten me, I would still oppose this kind of disarmament. Palestinians still face too many threats from crime and their government to justify disarmament. Palestinians, keep your guns, but point them in a better direction – the terrorists in your midst.
