Israel: No More Phony PA Cease-Fires

(Jerusalem Post) Herb Keinon - Israeli officials dismissed PA proposals for a comprehensive cease-fire Thursday as just another attempt to win a temporary reprieve in order to regroup and reorganize. "What is needed is not a cease-fire, but real Palestinian reform and action against the terrorist infrastructure," a senior official in the Prime Minister's Office said Tuesday.
