Egypt offers possible ceasefire

Haaretz is reporting that the Egyptians are organizing a Gaza ceasefire plan, backed by Sarkozy/EU, might be taken up.

(AP) Israel "conditionally" welcomes ceasefire proposal. (Note: "welcomes proposal," not "accepts proposal," but it's closer than we've been.)

(NYTimes) Israel halted aerial bombing for 3 hours to allow humanitarian aid. (Better hurry. 3 hours doesn't seem like much time to truck in food and water.)
