    The obvious answer is to concede to some of their moderate demands with relation to the blockade. Hamas's popularity is Israel's problem, addressing that rather than Hamas itself would diminish their effectiveness and would do something to reverse the radicalizing effect of an increasingly desperate Gazan population.

      What other country is made to open its border to a sworn enemy?  

      You can't just let civilians through and exclude potential troublemakers. Hamas prides itself as being "of the people."

      I feel for the Gazans but they and only they have the power to make changes.
