If Hamas does not see the difference it is because it does not want to. The palestinians in Gaza could be improving their lives same as those in the West Bank if only they were allowed to by their government.

It does not take much brains to figure out that the same could be happening in Gaza, if only Hamas cared about what's best for its people.
