The UN passed resolution 1701 last night, which was voted unanimously by its Security Council. Although the war is continuing, the hope is that the violence will shortly stop. I wonder what will be political consequences of this resolution and of a cease-fire not only for Israel , Lebanon, and the Middle East but also for Ehud Olmert and on Fouad Siniora. My hope is that there won't be not only a return to the status quo ante to use the favorite term of Condi Rice, but that also that the people of Lebanon and of Israel won't have to leave another long and horrific month as the one they just live. Well, I have the right to dream!
