Who wants to kill the Israel-PA truce? A list of suspects, men who could send a fragile calm to hell

If, indeed, an order is issued to kill the truce - and if it is to be a Palestinian who pulls the trigger - the instructions may well come from abroad. Tehran, Beirut and Damascus are the most likely sources of such an order.

Background/ Who wants to kill Israel-PA truce: List of suspects By Bradley Burston, Haaretz Correspondent

A cease-fire, by its very nature, is a creature of mistrust. If either side's confidence in the other was more than tissue-thin, a more concrete, much more credible peace accord might have been concluded in its place. It therefore came as some shock but little surprise, when the man Ariel Sharon dispatched to Washington last week to reassure Washington that Israel and the Palestinians had taken steps toward lessening of tensions, broke sharply from Jerusalem's official expressions of praise for the other side. "A cease-fire is a ticking bomb which will blow up in our faces," Foreign Silvan Shalom told a national radio audience. Unless disarmed and broken up, terrorist organizations are likely to exploit the truce to rebuild their ranks, Shalom said. "Then, at a point in time of their choosing, they can mount a terror attack, perhaps a series of them, which will send this process down to hell."

What an amazing amount of new accounts less than 24 hours old whose first posts are Israel/Yesha/PA/arab posts.

And that's why they are freeing 900 terrs and training Israeli troops to ethnically cleanse the Jews from Yesha.

Morons...
