Argument: Israeli blockade is supported by Egyptian blockade of Gaza
Toby Greene. "End the Gaza blockade? If only it were that simple." guardian.co.uk. June 3rd, 2010: "Hamas has also repeatedly rejected a prisoner exchange deal that would bring the release of captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit and a potential relaxation of border restrictions by Israel or Egypt. I know from a recent visit to Cairo that the Egyptians are furious with Hamas. This explains why they have kept their own border with Gaza closed most of the time. They perceive the Palestinian Islamist group to be no less a threat to them than to Israel."
