Natanyahu loves the status quo because the territorial expansion continues while matters are reasonably peacefull notwithstanding Hamass bombast and occasional missiles which miss the target. The latter is usefull to proclaim Israel is in danger and keeps the internal front united and softens up international public opinion. Abbas,however is a danger because peace if it happens ends the status quo and leads ro sacrifices to be made. Therefore better Hamas than Abbas, But at what long term cost to Israel ?
