Lull Lingers? Funding Needed for Day of Rage?

Reader comment on item: The Key Issue of Hamas vs. Israel
in response to reader comment: Tactical Victories Notwithstanding - the Greater Cloud of Calamity Looms

Either a threat turned out to be a veiled insult of continued violence or potentially there is a continuation of the hudna for other obscured reasons now that it appears the 'day of rage' is postponed. Either way, a reprieve exists?
But a greater instigation may be in the offing as funding from the Persian Gulf may exact the incitement required to 'go at it again.' Does it really need that much antagonism to take it to the next step?
Indeed, the instigation to put more pressure on the political forces that are intent on keeping Israel on its toes while trying to form a shakey successor to PM Netanyahu's game plan may come again from the similarly shaky Iranian Islamic Regime's proxy push towards their own agenda. Hamas may be on a pause; but what of Hizbollah?
And if Hizbollah, what of al-Assad's reinstatement; does he now have the impetus to try for regaining the Golan, the speculation of which comes after the IDF quashed a new Syrian outpost in the wrong side of a fence. So many possibilities, so much potential for extending a lull that was merely a sign that something's broke. The cloud still hovers.
