The Palestinians don't have much, but they do have junk- some of which floats. I wonder what the Israeli gunships would do if faced with a massive seasteading flotilla , taking advantage of the 1.5 km/hr current to evacuate to Crete?
It would be a harrowing journey, but given the warm waters of the Mediterranian, quite possible.

This is the Gaza Strip. The Joke John Steward made is "They have two borders- Israel and Egypt- and both are closed. Where are they supposed to evacuate to?"

What many people don't know is "Palestine" is a foreign word, an Ottoman name for "Filistinian" or "Philistine", also known as South Syria. The Philistines were the successors to the great Phoenecian Empire, the greatest sailing trade empire of the region. Look at that map, look at that other border- do you think we western countries have a way to evacuate civilians out of the area?
At least three rockets were fired from Gaza toward southern Israel, about two hours after a temporary lull in hostilities began to allow humanitarian supplies to be delivered to Gaza, the Israeli military said.
Hamas to the rest of the world: We don't need your stinkin' humanitarian supplies.

Belief in God.
Belief in Christ Jesus’ deity and humanity – that He is both God and man (Cf. John 1:1; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 4:1-4; Romans 10:9).
Belief that you are a sinner in need of God’s mercy (Cf. 1 John 1:10).
Belief that Christ Jesus died on the Cross and rose bodily from the grave (Cf. John 2:19-21; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
Belief that grace through faith in Christ is necessary for salvation (Romans 5:1; Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 3:1-2, 5:1-4)."
