That Israel played a critical part in bringing Hamas to power, is clear to all (even Israel). After all, Israel refused to negotiate with Abbas since he came to power a year before Hamas. only steadfast resistance was shown to produce results from Israel. An example is the Gaza withdrawl. The coming phase will bring Hamas more achievements. The release of some prisoners for Shalit, as well as some political arrangement with Israel. Israel insists on getting this cease fire, to be kept by all factions. Who can impose this on the other small factions? Hamas and Fatah. Part of the deal will have to be that Israel lets off on the siege against the Hamas government. It will have to recognize it at least defacto and work with it on some logistical matters. (That's all Hamas is actually interested in.) So that the Israeli government which knows nothing about diplomacy will discover that the result of the coming deal could have been achieved a long time ago without a shot being fired.
