Beyond the Cease-Fire

April 1956
New Republic;4/30/56, Vol. 134 Issue 18, p4
The article focuses on the promises of Israel and Egypt that they will abide by the terms of Armistice mean that the worst is over. They find encouragement, too, in the Soviet Union's call on both sides to avoid provocation on the demarcation lines and Russian willingness to support United Nation measures directed toward the search for ways and means of strengthening peace in the area of Palestine and the implementation of the corresponding decisions of the Security Council. But before people turn over and go to sleep again, it would be wise to remember precisely what the Gaza Strip really is. It is a grim and arid no man's land, bristling with guns, a place of murder and sudden death, the hunting ground of silent, trigger-happy commandoes.
