Via Reuters (Hizbollah demands end to offensive) comes this tidbit:

In a softening of Israel’s position that could help Rice steer the sides toward a ceasefire, a senior Foreign Ministry official said Israel would not demand the immediate disarming of Hizbollah as part of a deal to end the fighting.

More than a softening of their position it is a tacit admission that they do not think that the current offensive can accomplish that goal.

Still, such a position will allow for a ceasefire to be negotiated. If the goal is that Hezbollah has to be disarmed first, then this fight will continue for some time.
