Help for Gaza: Just an Idea

I know I'm not the first person to think of this, but I'm going to put it in print anyway. I really should have thought of this weeks ago.

Before the current crisis erupted in Gaza, these two facts were clear:
1) Hamas accused Israel's blockade of Gaza of keeping food and other supplies from getting through.
2) Hamas was using the smuggling tunnels between Egypt and Gaza to smuggle rockets into Gaza, which they then fired at Israel.

So, um, why didn't Hamas just smuggle food and other supplies in through the tunnels, disguised as crates of rockets?

(No answer needed. The question is rhetorical.)
