What will it take for the ceasefire to succeed?

For the first time in weeks, Gaza and Israel are bracing for quiet.

Both sides agreed to a 72-hour cease-fire and negotiations that could lead to a longer cessation of violence.

Erin discussed the deal and the likelihood that it will succeed with Dan Senor, Co-Founder of the Foreign Policy Initiative and James Zogby who is the President of the Arab American Institute.

Wolf Blitzer broke the news live on Outfront, that Israel officially agreed to the cease-fire deal.

    Erin, good on you to bring a balanced view on this horrible tragedy antecedent and give a voice to the palestianian people away from just calling then terrorist. You seem to be the only one challenging the distorted rhetoric of Israel gov. Evading the death of innocent civilians killed by their indiscriminate attacks!
