Irony: Billy was the smart one in the Carter family.



With all their faults, Hamas leaders have continued to honor a temporary cease-fire, or hudna, during the past 18 months, and their spokesman told me that this "can be extended for two, 10 or even 50 years if the Israelis will reciprocate

Hudna CANNOT be extended more than 10 years. As a general rule 2 years is perhaps normal for any arab agreement in the current political climate. The fact is the Hudna will expire any month now. I like Carter and I realize the spirit of what he's doing here but whoever is telling him 50 years may have mis-spoken.

This should be a major focus of American, and Isareli attention: if no peace treaty between Infidels and Muslims can possibly mean a real peace, and can only last for 10 years, then Deterrence, and not a worthless agreement, is the only way to keep the peace.
