Hamas, armed terrorist organization that will follow its own political and military strategy regardless of any agreement. Likud, a political party that functions in a modern, western-style democracy. So, when Likud says (as it does in its charter) that they don't believe that there should be an independent state of Palestine, that's their political view which is balanced against the other political views within the spectrum of the Israeli electorate through the democratic institutions. Hamas operates as its own military, without the restrictions of a democratic process or requirements of compromise. If the Likud led government falls and a new coalition government behind Kadima is formed, Bibi is out of power, period and the direction of the armed forces falls under whoever is appointed Prime and Defense Ministers. Hamas can never be separated from its military wing; if they win the elections, they will continue their violent "resistance"; if they lose the elections, they will continue their violent "resistance" Most likely is that they will not hold elections; May is a long long way away.
