(( Israel reopened the controversial tunnel in Jerusalem's old city, which had been closed over the sabbath.
The opening of the tunnel last week sparked the worst Israeli-Palestinian gunbattles since the 1967 Middle East war.
But this time there was little opposition on the streets. Arafat's paramilitary police force restored order, and the West Bank and Gaza Strip were calm.
The few demonstrations that did take place were peaceful.
Even a funeral for one of the Palestinian victims of the violence passed quietly, in contrast to the rage at funerals a few days ago.
Israel also buried its dead.
As the tension declined, Israeli troops at border checkpoints finally found the time to observe Succot, the week-long Biblical feast of tabernacles.
On the Palestinian side, soldiers took a breather, too.
What further calmed tensions, was President Clinton's announcement of a Netanyahu-Arafat summit in Washington this week aimed at ending the violence.
CLINTON I THINK THEY'RE BOTH CONCERNED ABOUT THE ERUPTIONS OF VIOLENCE; I BELIEVE THEY WANT TO REACH PEACE OR THEY WOULDN'T BE COMING HERE IF THEY DIDN'T.
The summit was welcomed, both by the Palestinians and Israel.
BENJAMIN NETANYAHU/ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER: WHAT I'M SUGGESTING, IN WASH WE NEED TO ADOPT 2 PRINCIPLES - AN END TO THE VIOLENCE AND HOSTILITY AND, TWO, A SPEEDY RESUMPTION OF EXCELLED PEACE TALKS THIS IS WHAT THE PROCESS NEED AND WHAT I'D LIKE TO ACHIEVE WITH ARAFAT.
The Palestinians say they don't want the summit to be another photo-opportunity.
What they DO want, is a clear timetable from Netanyahu, for implementing the peace agreement.
