Is it just me or did the cease-fire happen really quickly? I honestly thought it would take a couple weeks for Israel and Hamas to come to any sort of agreement. Except for those five rogue rockets from Gaza (geez, didn't you guys get the memo?) hopefully everyone can breathe a little easier now.

Anderson talked to Christiane Amanpour; where has she been all this time? There was another smart interview with Amb. Michael Oren, who said very diplomatically about the five recent rockets, " takes a while for the cease-fire to take hold." I might have said something about Meshal's lack of control of all of Hamas.

The best part of 360 was Anderson's interview with George Mitchell. It was very informative and even enlightening and no, Anderson, it was not a dumb question to ask if there is yelling or calm during negotiations.

Regarding asking dumb questions, I had one for Fareed Zakaria. Fareed said israel spends a lot on its defense and is far superior and more technologically advanced than its neighbors. Also, Egypt and Turkey know this are are reluctant to start a war with Israel. So my question is: why is Hamas so eager/foolish/dumb to want a war with Israel?

I was glad to see Anderson in Jerusalem and hope he and all the CNN people are home soon.
