In this Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012 photo, Palestinian Hamas border guards patrol the Egyptian Gaza border while an Egyptian bulldozer works on the demolition of a smuggling tunnel, as seen from 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 the shared border crossing into a free-flowing trade route, ending Gaza's five-year isolation from the world and making the tunnels obsolete.
