How can the fighting in Lebanon and Gaza be stopped through a cease fire? Well, the requirement for cessation of hostilities has always been the same:
Israel would agree to a cease-fire in its six-day-old offensive against Hezbollah if the Lebanese guerrillas withdraw from the border area with Israel and release two captured Israeli soldiers, a senior official said Monday.
The Islamo Fascists know that to end this all they need to do is undo what they started. Hezballah and Hamas started this war by killing and kidnapping Israeli soldiers from inside Israel. My fear is these soldiers may have played their required role in the typical terrorist snuff film. But the path to an end has always been known. Israel will beat on these people until they cry uncle and either give up their captives (if this is still possible) or at least admit the error of their ways and pay retribution to the families of those killed. There can be no face saving for the terrorists this round.
