The fake "calm" is over

The fake "tahadiye" that Palestinian Arab terror groups said they agreed to in March 2005 is officially over.

Of course, during that "calm" the only let-up in terror attacks is because of Israeli responses to terror and the terrorist desire not to sabotage the Gaza withdrawal, not from any real commitment from the terrorist side. The amount of logistics involved in organizing a suicide attack proves quite well that the "calm" was a joke.

As Daled Amos points out, there were 23 major terror attacks during the supposed calm. He does not count the hundreds of rocket attacks and unsuccessful attacks on Jews during that same time.

There never was a truce (as the wire services called it) or even a calm. The constant references to such by the media will not be missed.
