Under President Obama, for the first time ever, Hamas thinks it has a realistic shot at world respectability. Sincere or not, Hamas now wants to paint a picture of "responsible leadership," hoping to beat out the PA as Obama's super-friend. We'll see if it lasts, but for the time being, it's clear that Hamas sees potential for concrete gain with Obama, and Qassams dont fit into that plan. (Likewise, decline in attacks cannot have been caused by fear of another Cast Lead -- Hamas knows fully well that irrespective of Hamas escalation, another such offensive will never be an option for Israel while Obama is President.)
