    The siege affects civilians only, not Hamas, the rulers. Rulers always sit fat and happy during sieges. The arms flow nonetheless because actually stopping that would require re-invasion. Modern siege is an inconvenience to the besiegers, the goal is to demoralize the civilian population. It is working, too.
