Gaza Crossings:

During the Gaza military conflict in January, Hamas apologists claimed that the whole thing was Israel's fault for limiting the amount of goods that can cross into and out of Gaza, necessitating Hamas's "resistance. Yet Hamas and other Palestinian factions have consistently attacked the crossings that are open, knowing that this will inevitably lead to further restrictions.

Sp it's worth remembering an attack last April on the Israeli terminal that supplies gas to Gaza. Two Israeli civilians were murdered. Do you think Hamas condemned the attack for threatening Gaza's gas supply and immiserated the civilian population? Not exactly:

Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, praised the attack as heroic and courageous. He said Hamas was not responsible but affirmed his group's support for "resistance."

[The original version of this post mistakenly suggested that the attack on the gas terminal happpened very recently.]
