Some good news for a change?
CNN has one of the best headlines I've seen in a long time, specifically Abbas 'reaches cease-fire deal'. Apparently Hamas and Islamic Jihad have agreed to halt attacks against Israel. Additionally: "At a press conference, a masked spokesman for the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, who introduced himself as Abu-Mohammad, said his group was ready to consider Abbas' call for a cease-fire 'if it is mutual and if Israel also commits to it.'
A splinter group of Al Aqsa calling itself 'Aimen Juda Brigades' said it would support Abbas' efforts to reach a cease-fire, but only if Israel would stop all military operations, including targeted killings, and release prisoners.
Two other militant groups, the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine) and DFLP (Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine), made similar comments."

All I can ask is, what about the People's Front of Judea? Oh, right: splitters.

(If you don't get the reference, you haven't seen enough Monty Python.)
