Good news to report: smuggling, and more smuggling

"--Smugglers along the border of Egypt and the Gaza Strip will continue moving goods through tunnels despite the recent construction of an underground wall. "Let the Americans and the Israelis pay for the wall," Ismail*, a smuggler, told Al-Masry Al-Youm. "The tunnels are minimum 20 meters underground. We can make it 40 meters."" I want to start a political movement that aims at spreading smuggling throughout the Middle East region, especially into Palestinian lands. We can call it the Smugglers' Support Movement (or SSM).
