The Egyptians have opened the Rafah crossing to PEOPLE only, not to GOODS. They are not foolish, and are not willing to take upon themselves the burden of Gaza, they prefer to leave it to Israel. The Gazans are still unable to import raw materials and export finished goods to the world. As long as this situation continues, the Gaza economy will remain in a devastated state and the flotilla problem remain. Of course, Israel should lift the economic blockade which has failed to achieve any intended goal. But the military threat from Gaza remains real. The air and sea blockade will have to remain in place. But economic recovery will take the wind out of the sails of future flotillas.
