Main Topic Two Views of the Cease-fire in Lebanon 30 MIN
The world's biggest story today is, of course, the cease-fire in Lebanon and what it will mean for the parties involved. While Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah declared a "strategic, historic victory" today, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was telling the Knesset a different story. He said the Israeli army had damaged Hezbollah's massive arsenal, its confidence and its capabilities. Meantime, despite a warning from Israel not to travel, tens of thousands of refugees jammed the roads into southern Lebanon today. Will Hezbollah disarm? Will it submit itself to the Lebanese army bolstered by international forces? Will Israel's new leadership survive? We get perspective from political scientists and journalists in Israel and Lebanon. (An extended version of this discussion originally aired earlier today on To the Point.
