Eight Palestinians and six Israelis have been killed in the 11 days since the shaky cease-fire took effect.

(SOT/EDWARD WALKER, PRESIDENT, THE MIDDLE EAST INSTITUTE)

"The 'cease fire', it's a bit strong for the situation on the ground. Let's say it's a pause that gives an opportunity to create a cease fire where both parties see it in their interest to maintain the cease fire."


(VO:) As each side blames the other for the sporadic violence, dual

diplomatic missions this week will attempt to cool the hostilities.
On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon will meet with President Bush in Washington. Then Secretary of State Colin Powell himself will head to the Middle East.

(SOT/SEN. JOSEPH BIDEN/D-DE)

"It doesn't SOLVE the problem but without his being involved and engaged, it really creates an overwhelming sense of insecurity from Cairo to Damascus, and that's not healthy."

(VO:) Powell's visit...on the heels of the cease fire deal engineered by

CIA chief George Tenet...signals a Bush policy shift.....says longtime House foreign relations chairman Lee Hamilton

(SOT/LEE HAMILTON, DIRECTOR WOODROW WILSON CENTER)

"Every Administration I can remember starts out by saying "We're not going to get so heavily involved in the Middle East. And every administration I can remember, and that means seven of them, have gotten themselves deeply involved in the Middle East."

(ORR CLOSE: )

President Bush calls Powell's trip part of "an all-out effort to bring peace" to the region. But, that can't happen until the cease fire truly takes hold...and until both sides regain enough confidence to give a new round of peace talks a chance.
