In this Saturday, May 28, 2011 file photo, Palestinians smuggle goods used for construction through a tunnel from Egypt to the Gaza Strip in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip. Hamas had hoped the Islamists who took charge in Egypt this summer -- fellow members of the region's Muslim Brotherhood -- would swiftly turn their shared border crossing into a free-flowing trade route, ending Gaza's five-year isolation from the world and making the tunnels obsolete.
