    Vino, Thanks for your response. Since (according to our resident international law experts, Tosefta, Johnboy, Ben Alofs, etc, Gaza is 'occupied'. Israel can control how much food. cash, electricity, etc is available to Gaza. Israel can trickle out the minimum while events play themselves out. Hamas has defeated Fatah but has not developed a government. They have failed at the first two challanges. They dare not disarm the clans which have not voluntarily given up their weapons. They have not recovered Johnston and Sword of Islam is making a point of spitting in their face. Hamas desperately needs a win to gain credibility. They are trying to win by gaining Pal prisoners through an audio tape of Shalit. They still haven't proven that Shalit didn't tape this a year ago. Hamas will face Egyptian hostility next. Egypt tried to negoatiate between the two Pal factions and were humiliated by Hamas which also made the mistake of supporting Bedouin terrorists in Sinai. FAILURE
