Israel rules out opening Gaza border if Hamas gains
This will be the next big dispute.
If Hamas really cares for the
welfare of Gazans they will accept
others controlling the money and aid.
Israel has all but ruled out fully reopening border crossings with the Gaza Strip as long as Hamas rules the enclave or stands to benefit from easing of the restrictions, a top adviser to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said.
Hamas has made a shaky cease-fire, which ended Israel's 22-day offensive in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, conditional on Israel lifting its blockade, which, the adviser made clear, would not happen anytime soon.
