Meshaal’s inflammatory speech was just what Netanyahu needs to guarantee his reelection as well as what Meshaal needs to maintain his popularity in the face of the UN vote which has revived the political fortune of Mahmoud Abbas. Hamas and the Likud-Israel Beiteinu coalition are truly bedfellows who need each other to survive and they are perfectly willing and able to give each other a leg up whenever needed. All else is sound and fury.
