The smuggling tunnels in Sinai are essential for the economy of the Gaza Strip. But since the unrest broke out in Egypt, they have been closed off -- plunging the ruling Hamas party into financial crisis.

It has only been a few weeks since the Egyptian military ousted its president, Mohammed Morsi -- moving him to an undisclosed location where he remains. On Tuesday, the same day a new round of Middle East peace talks kicked off in Washington, European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton payed an unprecedented visit to the deposed president and reported back that he is doing "well."

"Friends" do not dig tunnels and smuggle scarce subsidized goods or stolen merchandise thus causing acute shortages, then tax the smugglers at the other end of the tunnel for a share of the 'booty'. 'Friends' do not smuggle in men and weapons to blow up pipe lines and attack police and army. If this is what friends do, what have they left for an enemy?

If the ruin of Hamas means the end of the siege on Gaza then good riddance.   Palestinians have to fight for their rights.   Politics is no reason to stop them.

"The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the Legislature.  The Executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question" ~ James Madison
"Peace cannot be achieved by force, only by understanding."  ~ Albert Einstein
"To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.   To impose on them a wretched life of hunger and deprivation is to dehumanize them." ~ Nelson Mandela
