The article examines Israel's relatively peaceful state in the summer of 2009. According to the author, the firing of missiles and mortars from the Gaza Strip into Israeli towns has almost completely stopped while Hamas heeded Israel's demand to control smaller militant group firing missiles. The author also reports that the Israel-Lebanon border has been relatively peaceful as Hezbollah has softened its anti-Israel rhetoric.
