Anyone who believes that once Israel ends its blockade it will still maintain the subsidization of Gaza, i.e. where do you think Gaza's fresh water (aside from its one aquifier), electricity, medicine, food etc... is delusional. Once Israel lifts its blockade, no argument for Occupation can be made in which case, Israel's liability to Palestinians in Gaza drops to NOTHING. That means Gazans will have to generate their own electricity, purcahse their own fuel and medical supplies, go to Egypt for medical care, get all foods from Aid going through Rafah. That is when the humanitarian crisis will begin. Especially because the momentum of FREE GAZA will be lost, and then sadly, the 1.5M in Gaza will be as forgotten, as the hundreds of Civilians that were murdered in Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, today alone. Furthermore, Hamas, if it attacks Israel will be in worse shape as the argument of resisting occupation, (which really doesn't hold unless you are a terrorist and view civilians as the occupiers), or cries regarding disporportionality against a blocakaded peoples. Or better yet the BS argument that Gaza could not be bombarded because it was blockaded (DOESN"T MAKE SENSE AS NO BOMBARD APPLIES TO OPEN CITIES GAZA IS NOT AN OPEN CITY WHERE IDF COULD WALTZ IN AND NOT BE ATTACKED) Essentially Hamas would lose the vast majority of what currently protects it.
