"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

[Media Source*] (China Daily) It looks like their might be another cease fire between the Palestinians and the Israelis. I wonder how long it will last. It isn't that I do not enjoy two societies living side-by-side in peace, it's just that every peace talk breaks down either at Jerusalem or the borders or some other problem. Either way, I do hope that these talks will bring about a season of peace in the region. Bush at least seems optimistic about the meeting.
"Prime Minister Abbas comes to the table with a mandate from a lot of Palestinians," Bush told reporters at the end of a Cabinet meeting, unintentionally misstating the Palestinian leader's job title. "He has been through an election. He has been endorsed by the Palestinian people."
Well, I hope he is right. Otherwise we are going to have a lot of dead bodies on our hands.

At least Abbas seems cooperative and is taking real steps towards peace.
"Two weeks ago, we announced a cease-fire. Since then, we have been in extensive talks with the Israeli side over many issues. If you wait for tomorrow, you will hear about the results," Abbas said after meeting with French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier in the West Bank town of Ramallah.
We will be waiting. Selah!
