  1. Israel’s civil and military personnel left Gaza in 2005, leaving it to the PLO. The borders were much easier to cross. There was no blockade. An airport was opened with flights to Cairo. Gazans crossed into Israel every day to work.

    Hamas took over in 2007. Hamas now owns Gaza. They terrorize and execute Gazans who oppose them. Rockets, tunnels, suicide attacks – that’s why there’s an Israeli and Egyptian blockade and the borders with Israel and Egypt are closed. .

    Gulf Arab nations have provided untold millions of $$$$ to Gaza. Hamas has stolen most of the funds to buy arms and dig tunnels.

    Freedom for Gaza? Maybe when they behave like civilized human beings. Right now, the only freedom Hamas wants is to destroy Israel and kill Jews.
