So why would they fire rockets at the US? Israel has been imposing massive restrictions on Gaza since it captured it in 1967, first it moved it settlers in there and gave them freedom of movement denied to the existing population. Then it moved out the settlers and tightened the noose even more. And as regards Hamas (or anyone else) recognising Israel could you tell us what Israel they are supposed to recognise? Is it 1/ Israel within the 1967 borders, 2/ the 1967 borders and whatever settlements Israel wants to keep in the West Bank or 3/ all the territory which Israel controls which includes the West Bank and Gaza? Yes, Egypt has a southern border with Gaza but Israel controls the air space and all the waters off Gaza and uses that control to impose its blockade.
