Israel Declares Cease-Fire After its "Goals" have been Achieved

From the NY Times News Alerts:
Israel announced a unilateral cease-fire on Saturday evening
in the three-week-old war in Gaza that has killed at least
1,200 Palestinians and 13 Israelis. Prime Minister Ehud
Olmert told Israelis in a televised address: "The conditions
have been created that our aims, as declared, were attained
fully, and beyond."

I guess the "aims" were to see how many days it can take them to put all their new weapons to use and kill no less than 1000 Palestinians. I wonder what is next, since as we all know Israeli and American soldiers and politicians are above all international laws and treaties.
