Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah agree to cease-fire
JERUSALEM (AP) — Islamic mili-(ants agreed to halt attacks on Israelis for three months, Palestinian negotiators said Wednesday. But the tenuous deal was immediately undercut by an Israeli airstrike and Hamas threats of revenge.
Ending 33 months of violence is a necessary prelude to the U.S.-backed “road map" peace plan aimed at establishing a Palestinian state by 2005.
Despite the truce accord, which some Hamas officials denied, there was no sign of a letup in bloodletting. Pour Palestinians were killed in Gaza, including two in a helicopter attack Israel said was aimed at a squad preparing to launch rockets.
; President Bush reacted coolly to reports of a cease-fire signed by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Yasser Arafat’s Fatah. “I’ll believe it when I see it,” he said at a Washington news conference, echoing Israel in insisting the real test is whether Palestinian security forces will disarm militant groups.
Fed cuts interest rate to 45-year low
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve, still striving to coax the struggling economy to stronger growth, cut a key interest rate Wednesday to its lowest level since Dwight Eisenhower was president.
While Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan and his colleagues repeated concerns that economic weakness could trigger a destabilizing fall in prices, they also noted hopeful signs that recovery from the 2001 recession may finally be picking up steam.
For that reason, many analysts said the Fed’s 13th cut in its federal funds rate could well be the last in a credit-easing campaign that began in January 2001.
At the same time, analysts said by continuing to mention the remote threat the country could face a period of falling prices — deflation — the Fed was signaling it would keep interest rates down.
