The Egypt-Gaza Border

An editorial in yesterday's Washington Post:
On Friday protesting policemen stormed and briefly closed the border crossing between Gaza and Egypt, the opening of which has been one of the few successes of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Today, from Reuters:
Palestinians have smuggled anti-aircraft missiles into the
Gaza Strip along with tons of other military hardware since
Israel withdrew in September, an Israeli intelligence report said on Monday.

The missiles were smuggled into Gaza across the border from Egypt, the Shin Bet security agency's report said.
I guess it all depends on how you define "success".
