Errr ... not so much. Over/under in days is probably 3 or 4. But 2, seems to be the number...

Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Salafists, and Al-Queda all thrive in Gaza.
As soon as they replenish their Iranian rockets, they'll go at it again.

The only way to stop them is for the US ad Israel to find a way of ending the smuggling. Egypt could do it easily but the Muslim Brotherhood government actually SUPPORTS the terrorists of Gaza.

As with every cease-fire with Gaza, the question is how long will it hold meaning when will the next round rocket fire on Israel start again.

For those unfamiliar with the region: no cease fire ever was without violation in the first days. It takes time until things settle. I believe it will hold for some time, since Hamas was hurt and it will take them time to rearm, replenish their arsenal and appoint new commanders. Israel on the other hand, is heading for elections in January and they need quiet time. Businesses in many areas were disrupted. It costed Israel's economy quite a lot. The danger is more from partisan actions by those who defy Hamas orders. In Israel a local Arab bombed a bus and crazed Palestinian mob pushed against the border fence. If Hamas can enforce discipline, it will hold.
