Sharon, Abbas Declare "Truce"

We have seen this before: a shaky truce, cordial “talks” between leaders of Israel and the P.A., new hope, etc… All of which is blown to pieces by one suicide bomber sent by Hezbollah or Hamas. However, the optimist in me wants to believe that it is different this time. The death of Yassar Arafat and the newly established Democracies in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the presence of a very serious US President lead me to believe that a true breakthrough is possible. Is Mr. Abbas truly a reformer who seeks peace with the Israeli’s? Does he have the public support necessary to reign in terror groups who have vowed the destruction of Israel? Will Iran and Syria be allowed to continue to fund and promote terror in Israel and the rest of the world?

It is yet to be seen.
