    i think its a mistake to make a truce without getting Gilad Shalit back as a part of the agreement.
    other then that, now Hamas will have the chance to rearm itself and plan further attacks without the IDF interrupting them.

    I agree, Gilad should have been an initial piece of any sort of deal, but I'm wondering why (even though we've had a tendency to beat this subject to death) we aren't jumping on it.

    I'd venture the answer is that we've become too jaded and inured to wade back in - the very thing that inhibits the process from the outset.

    How about that.

    Seems that Hamas has broken the cease fire already. No shocker there.

    In my opinion, Israel had to accept a cease fire. Had they not, it would have been used against them as many would say that peace was offered and Israel declined it. Agreeing was a win-win for them. They get the good publicity, they actually give peace a shot, and since we all knew that the Palestinians would never be able to hold up their end, it allows Israel to say they tried peace and it didn't work.

    Pretty much the case.

    Israel basically loses nothing at all be agreeing to anything short of self-immolation.

    Still, though, they're not likely to be positively credited for any of it.

    Define "they".

    If you mean Israel, you're wrong. All reports are saying that the Israeli raid was which ended in 2 deaths was a reaction to rockets which were fired by militants.

    I've yet to read a single story which states otherwise. Surely you can backup your claim...
