Just hypothetical. If ISrael comes to a peace agreement with hamas, and they form a palestinian nation, and then more terrorist attack israel, what then? What is Israel's recourse? Do you think the Palestinian government will be able to stop them?
I believe Hamas can stop attacks from other militias if it wants too, and Egypt can stop the smuggling if it wants too. A few years ago, Al Qaeda tried to set shop in Gaza and Hamas went in and cleaned their clocks and ran them off.
Also, Hamas once tried to smuggle some anti-aircraft missiles into Gaza but Egypt confiscated them before they made their way to the smuggling tunnels because they were afraid at what Hamas might do with them. Also, note that the general suggests that Israel gets Turkey, Egypt and the Gulf states co-sign the peace deal since they all support Hamas and have the ability to twist its arm, especially Egyptian President Morsi, whose Muslim Brotherhood is the father of Hamas.
EDIT: Keep in mind that if Gaza was allowed to set up their own port, the thing that would be hanging over Hamas' head is that Israel could close it anyime it feels like it, and they can do that without firing a single shot.
