My simple question: Will the actions of Hamas or Israel change the status quo?

More to the point, can the chosen actions of either actually change the status quo for the better?

I don't think so. Each side is fighting a losing battle with the course they have chosen.

2. Short term win, long term lose

The only place this leads is eventually someone with more anger than sense gets ahold of something worse than a rocket or missile, and everyone loses.

3. This pretty much exposes the Palestinian Authority as a tool of the Israelis and the US

Hamas is the only legitimate representative of the Palestinians and it will be supported by all the Arab Spring governments and Turkey.
