The recent murders of three Israeli teenagers, followed by the killing of a Palestinian boy, leave Israel in a precarious position, says Jonathan Tobin, a columnist and senior online editor of Commentary magazine.

"It's a complicated matter. I don't envy Benjamin Netanyahu,'' Tobin told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Quite frankly, Hamas is gaining from this crisis. Hamas committed a terrible murder. Their people murdered three Jewish kids in cold blood, acting on behalf of their goals.

"They are the political winners in this because it allows them to show Palestinians they're the ones who are fighting, who are killing Israelis,'' he said Monday.

He said that sadly, the dynamic of Palestinian politics has never been one where the peacemakers get the advantage.

"It's always been the people who killed the most got the advantage,'' Tobin said.
