While the average level of daily violence has gone down since the "ceasefire process" began in June, the attacks on Israeli settlements continues, as does Israeli retaliation. This fighting shows no signs of going away. A bomb went off in an Israeli suburb of Jerusalem. There were no injuries. Israel has again said that "war is not an option" (that Israel will not attack and destroy the Palestinian Authority.) But the Israeli army is apparently massing for just such an operation.
