Obama says, “Lift the Gaza blockade.” Palestinian Authority President Abbas says, “Hey, not so fast.”

Egypt doesn't want the blockade lifted either.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is opposed to lifting the naval blockade of the Gaza Strip because this would bolster Hamas, according to what he told United States President Barack Obama during their meeting at the White House Wednesday. Egypt also supports this position.
