A glimpse of hope?

Disasters avoided, for now | "TWO doomsdays have, for now, been postponed. The threat of a return to all-out intifada by Palestinian militant factions, after the heaviest fighting seen this year between them and the Israeli army, was averted when both Hamas and Islamic Jihad announced on Tuesday September 27th that they would return to a ceasefire that had been brokered in March. The day before, the threat of a fatal split in Israel’s Likud party was deferred after the party’s central committee voted narrowly not to bring forward the leadership primaries, which will pit Ariel Sharon, the current prime minister, against his main rival, Binyamin Netanyahu."
