The renewed fighting between Israeli forces and Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip has been going on since December 27. More than 750 Palestinians and 14 Israelis have been killed. But late tonight, a United Nations resolution was passed by 14 key Arab nations and Western powers calling for an immediate cease-fire. U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has supported the terms of the resolution, but abstained from voting because she wanted to make sure Hamas would abide by the cease-fire. So tonight, we ask you: Will the U.N. resolution bring peace to Gaza? Tell us what you think.
