Almost over

Well, it seems this war is almost over and soon everyone will go back to their daily business – that is all those who were not directly affected and those are very many, in obviously differing degrees.

This morning we had 5 air raid alarms in Haifa in the space of half an hour – part of a last volley of rockets before the cease fire is due to be implemented. Yesterday only 68 Katyusha rockets fell inside Israel – the Israeli army says that the reduced number is a result of their extended ground operation in southern Lebanon. But that’s what they would say of course. They have a lot of lost credibility to regain in the eyes of the Israeli public and it doesn’t hurt to justify the ongoing land operation with its heavy toll in lives of Israeli soldiers. Let’s hope that Nasrallah doesn’t prove them wrong with a final dramatic firework display before the ceasefire is implemented.

Sorry - it can't be over, David. Only this stage of it. That which is fuelling it has not gone away.

Oh yes. Only the current round is over. 7 million Jews are not going to vanish and Arab nationalism and victimhood and Islamic fundamentalism aren't going anywhere either. Israelis and some of our neighbours seem doomed to never-ending conflict. Any ideas?
