It took very little time for the Palestinians, now in full command in Gaza, to destroy much of the infrastructure left by the previous Jewish settlers. Little if anything was done to develop industry and tourism. However, the art of tunnel-making and rocket production was taken to a new level of excellence. Within a short time, rockets routinely rained down on Israeli communities all around the Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip. Hamas, who run Gaza, vowed the destruction of the State of Israel. The anti-Israel rhetoric was swallowed whole by the Western media. Everyday life in Gaza was, in the words of the Hamas leadership, “like living

Even though some items with a dual purpose—such as certain fertilizers, which could be used for rocket fuel—were allowed into the Strip.

But the truth is something else.
