While Abbas and Rice discussed the solution for Israeli conditions, and Abbas announced the soldiers release was soon...the Pal terror organizations all said they agreed to nothing and saw no reason to consider (important word here) a cease-fire until AFTER Israel gives everything. A typical Arab torpedo tactic in negotiations. Right before the final agreement, they demand everything up front before they "consider", not "agree" and not "accept", but "consider" a cease-fire. Israel led blindly into the lion's den in 2000 by believing Arafat, it won't be doing that again. A final deal, or nothing. Same in Lebanon. You Arabs have just lost all credibility.
