    If Hamas would stop firing missiles into Israel, and stop tunneling under the border, and stop all terrorist problems and kidnapping, Israel would stop immediately. Gaza had tremendous potential in 2005 when Israel, a shopping mall, greenhouses, hundreds of millions in international aid. All pissed away when Hamas overthrew the PA in a bloody coup, and started importing missiles and creating tunnels and bunkers. If that aid had been spent on developing the economy, and stopped the violence, the borders would open, trade and tourism would flow. But then, they wouldn't have a reason to exist, so we'll never see it happen.
