HAMAS WILL PAY

It was about two o'clock in the morning - terrorists just over the border in Gaza launch three Qassam rockets at the IDF training base near Kibbutz Zikim. One of them explodes near the tents where most of the soldiers are sleeping. Pandemonium - 67 are wounded from the rocket shrapnel and by concussion. Several are seriously wounded. Ambulances and helicopters rush to the scene and within forty minutes or so all the injured are being treated and evacuated to hospital. In light of the gravity of the Zikim attack and the recent split between radical Hamas and more moderate Fatah, IsraCast foresees Israel declaring total war against Hamas in Gaza.

Valley of Peace - By Shimon Peres

The government of Israel adopted an important, precedential decision, designating the "Valley of Peace" plan as a "National Project" for all intents and purposes.

ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN PEACE TRAIN

In Jerusalem, momentum is building for the international meeting to discuss implementing the two state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict slated for this fall. In calling for the conference, U.S. President George Bush has apparently pulled some strings in all quarters to create a constructive atmosphere.

He has discarded his unilateralism opting for risks and concessions in bilateral talks with the Palestinians resembling that of the Labor party. This approach may also be designed to influence Israeli public opinion.
