Israel Caves, Accepts United Nation “Cease-Fire”

From the DNC's Associated Press:

Israeli PM has accepted cease-fire deal

By KARIN LAUB, Associated Press Writer

JERUSALEM – Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has accepted an emerging Mideast cease-fire deal and informed the United States of his decision, Israeli officials said Friday.

Olmert will recommend that his government approve the deal in its meeting on Sunday, said Gideon Meir, a senior official in the Israeli Foreign Ministry.

Meir said the military offensive in Lebanon would continue for the time being. It was not immediately clear if it would be halted after the U.N. Security Council vote on the cease-fire deal later Friday, or only after the Israeli Cabinet has endorsed it.

This is a big mistake. It would be better to get this over now then when Hezbollah’s patron has "the bomb."

Apparently, the proposed agreement will expand the role of UNIFIL:

Which will solve the problem for sure.
