A leader from Hamas said just a few weeks ago that Hamas' finances have "never been better" due to their controlling of smuggling tunnels, and they DON'T want the blockade to end.

Of course the gut reaction is to support the side that the US supports, but you know what? lately the US hasn't been too hot on supporting the "right people".
