Gaza Operation: The End in Sight
By Micah Halpern

Thursday January 8, 2009

I'm Predicting:

Now, well into the second week of the Israeli operation into Gaza, the head of emergency services in Gaza says the death toll has reached 700 and injuries 3,100.
It looks as if the end is in sight.

Here are some indicators:
Israel is delivering humanitarian supplies to Gaza everyday.
Israel has created a humanitarian corridor and a quiet period lasting several hours during mid-day allowing Gazans to replenish their supplies in the corridor.
The co-sponsored Egyptian/French ceasefire initiative has Israel's support and Hamas is listening.

The details will take several days to work out.
In the meantime Hamas will continue to launch rockets and Israel will continue to try to find the stockpiles of weapons hidden in Gaza.
As the weekend winds down the Gaza operation and the process of intermediary dialogue will be happening simultaneously.
Egypt and France will be dealing with Hamas and Israel.

A new status with a severally weakened Hamas is close.
That means that Abbas and the Palestinian Authority will join the discussions.
The final result may not be ideal.
In the end, Abbas and Hamas may join and create a power sharing deal.
