Israelis and Palestinians will, it seems, wake up
this morning to a new era: The thousand-day war
will be behind them, leaving more than 800
fatalities on the Israeli side, more than 2,200 on
the Palestinian side and tens of thousands of
wounded on both sides. Each people's ability to
trust the other has been severely damaged.


Uzi Benziman in Haaretz, declaring the war over and also giving it a pretty damn good name (much better than "Al-Aksa Intifada" or the even worse "The Second Intifada"). I am personally far more skeptical as to whether the Thousand Day War is, in fact, over and done with. I trust Hamas and Islamic Jihad only slightly less than I trust Abu Mazen and the PA. Mr. Benziman's optimism may prove extremely unwarranted, I'm reserving judgement for a while.

I would also note that Benziman's analysis of the situation is pretty marred by his own personal biases. In other words, like most Left-wing Israelis, he's got a semi-psychotic obsession/hatred for Ariel Sharon. Arik has never lacked for strong responses, but some folks simply seem unable to give the guy a break on anything, and this fellow is no exception.
