From the BBC:

Tens of thousands of Israelis have taken to the streets of Tel Aviv to demand the immediate withdrawal of the Israel army and settlers from Palestinian territories. The protest, organised by the Peace Now movement, also called on the Israeli Government to pursue the Saudi peace plan which specifies a full withdrawal in return for full peace with Arab countries.

Meanwhile, the planned assault on Gaza has been delayed because of international pressure, though the tanks are still staying put for now. Israel Delays Gaza Assault Amid Peace Pressure.

Elsewhere, Shimon Peres was quoted as saying that Israel may have been wrong for not supporting the formation of an independent Palestinian state earlier. And:

“We feel that the weakest point in the Palestinian making is the fact that they have three or four or five dissident armed groups, and each of them is shooting on its own in a different direction, and by doing so destroying any possibility of having a joint agenda,” Peres said.
