Israel has one more week

The Guardian is quoting British sources which say Bush has given Israel one more week to do as much damage as it can to Lebanon. After that, the US will back calls for a ceasefire.

Condoleeza Rice's visit to Lebanon and Israel has been delayed until the end of this week at the earliest.

They claim that a prisoner swap is also on the cards, and that Israel is no longer demanding Hizbollah disarms before Israel stops bombing Lebanon - now, apparently, it is only calling for Hizbollah to move away from the border.
