    Hamas is not like Iran. You can't use sanctions or freeze their assets because they are just a terror organization and the only way to deal with them is using physical action. Construction material gets appropriated by Hamas and used for either tunnels or other non essential building projects. It happens all the time its not just a theory of something that might happen so naturally its going to be hard to give them the facilities to rebuild. Limiting access to certain materials weakens Hamas. It might be collective punishment but what about the rockets fired at towns like Sderot isn't that a form of collective punishement? Also rockets are designed to kill people the seige is designed to stop Hamas getting weapons. Now if Oxfam want to bring their own people with their own tools and material which they take away with them to make essential repairs or fix up a few houses then they are welcome but all Oxfam are doing right now is condemning whats going on without offering a solution
