Quotes-start.png "What if Gazans had been allowed to travel freely to and from the West Bank, what if they had been able to sell their goods in Ramallah, Jenin and Nablus, then import food and consumer products for sale back in Gaza? Yes, it's entirely possible that they would have used this opportunity to arm themselves, as Israel feared, and attack Israelis in myriad ways. But it's also possible that they would finally have been able to establish a sustainable economy in Gaza, denying Hamas the opportunity to capitalize on their anger and misery." Quotes-end.png
