Uri Avnery: Sharon deliberatly wrecked Palestinian hudna (truce): "It is no secret that the military party (the only really functioning party in Israel) objected to the hudna (truce) from the first moment, much as it opposed the Road Map. Its powerful propaganda apparatus, which includes all the Israeli media, spread the message: 'The hudna is a disaster! Every day of the hudna is a bad day! The reduction of violence to almost zero [NB: 'zero' means Palestinian violence; Israeli violence continuted at a steady pace in a series of provocations which finally induced Hamas to end the hudna] is a great misfortune: under cover of the truce, the terrorist organizations are recovering and rearming! Every terrorist strike avoided today will hit us much harder tomorrow!'"
