A Ceasefire is Still Not in Reach

Israel Rejects Peace Offer - Los Angeles Times: "'Many battles are being fought on the soil of Lebanon and some have absolutely nothing to do with Lebanon,' Annan said.

The Lebanese government has proposed a seven-point peace plan, now endorsed by Hezbollah, but it is unlikely to satisfy Israeli or U.S. officials.

'We'd take anything that Hezbollah says with a grain of salt,' Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev said. Referring to international talks this week in Rome, he added, 'If they say they are on board with what was presented in Rome by the Lebanese government, I think they are being disingenuous.'"
