At this exact moment, when Netanyahu is using Hamas as peace spoiler, drawing a line in the sand that the West Bank Palestinians must abandon Hamas (hence Gaza) before resuming peace talks, the quiet on the Gaza border is very puzzling. Israel has a long track record of using violence on the Gaza border for political purposes, so why the restraint now? What is really going on, has Hamas somehow obtained a security guarantee or something similar? That something is happening on the back-channel seems highly probable.
