Tom Gross of Mideast Dispatch posts photos of the new mall opening in Gaza. Yes, Gaza, the same Gaza that Hamas claims is under siege, lacks electricity and can not get building supplies. Click on the photo above for more photos.
Maayana Miskin reports (emphasis added),
While Hamas continues to complain that Gaza lacks building materials, a luxury mall in Gaza City held its grand opening over the weekend. Among the goods on sale are Israeli men’s clothing, and items from Turkey, France, and the United States.
Gross, who has previously posted pictures of fancy restaurants, shops filled with goods, and even an Olympic-size swimming pool during the “Israeli siege,” pointed out that Gaza enjoys a higher standard of living than Turkey, which recently sent citizens on a flotilla to Gaza in violation of an Israeli naval blockade of Hamas. Noting that life expectancy and literacy rates are higher in Gaza than in Turkey, while infant mortality rates are lower, he asked, “Have they considered that perhaps the humanitarian flotillas ought to be going in the other direction, towards Turkey?”
They ought to, but that wouldn’t fit the propaganda, would it?
