    And before anyone squawks about 'Hamas stealing the money,' it should be remembered, the many social contributions Hamas made to the Palestinian people (schools, hospitals etc.) This was like a red flag to a bull (Israel.) Things were looking to permanent on the Palestinian people's little bit of land (Israel's open air prison,) hence the reason for Israeli bombing of Palestinian infrastructure, and the attempted wiping out of the democratically elected Hamas politicians - by destroying any fabric of Palestinian self determination, Israel stood/stands to expand, and take control of the whole coast line of Gaza. Some estimates state, the natural gas will generate $38 million annually. It is a blight on Israel's history to note, the natural gas off Gaza shore was discovered in 2000. September 2000, Ariel Sharon provoked the 'Al-Aqsa Intafada,' and shortly after the Ehud Barak government was brought down... peace with the Palestinians was not on Sharon's agenda, we can guess why!
