    That's pure Israeli hasbara - part of its 'existential threat' sales pitch. Hamas isn't interested in open confrontation with Israel even on its OWN behalf, why in the world would they invite another Cast Lead for Iran's sake? And Hezbollah? It's not really interested in confrontation either, despite all its bravado. It's more than satisfied maintaining its popular support under its 'protector of Lebanese sovereignty' banner while trying to manipulate itself into legitimate power. And Israel prefers to forget - again probably for hasbara purposes - Nasrallah's straight forward comment in 2006, about if he'd known Israel would respond the way it did, he'd never have crossed into Israel. Hezbollah is beholding to Iran - but only to a degree, and certainly not to the extent of full fledged Israeli retaliation...or worse, its own demise.
