Safe Mode: On
Humanitarian Crisis in Gaza

MYTH

"Israel's policies in the territories have caused a humanitarian crisis for the Palestinians."

It's been called an "open air prison," said to be "one of the worst humanitarian crises in the 21st century." Well, here is the REAL story about the situation in Gaza. With facts from the United Nations illustrating Palestinian Arabs suffering from one of the highest obesity rates in the world and actual footage of plentiful markets and fine-dining restaurants in Gaza City, this is the what the media won't show you.

FACT

It is important to remember that Israel offered to withdraw from more than 95 percent of the West Bank and 100 percent of Gaza, and it is the rejection of that proposal, coupled with incessant Palestinian terrorism, that has forced Israeli troops to carry out operations in the territories. Though these actions have caused hardship for the Palestinian population, the IDF has continued to ensure that humanitarian assistance is provided to Palestinians in need.

During the three weeks of Israel's operation against Hamas, 1,483 trucks carrying over 36, 650 tons of humanitarian aid supplies have entered the Gaza Strip through Israel and these amount of aid had been increased after the operation:

Report for May 2011:

* There was a 128% increase in the volume of truckloads transferred through the crossings compared to April 2011.
* There was a 31.5% increase in the number of patients and accompanying individuals who entered Israel for medical purposes compared to April 2011.

During the month of May, 4,031 truckloads were delivered into the Gaza Strip through Kerem Shalom Crossing, including:

  • Haters HATE the truth!

    Syria, Pakistan, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and all the rest of the ME is out of control with religious freaks that love killing others who do not agree with their crazy murdering ways! Sunni vs. Shia vs Kurds vs Christians vs Jews vs the world! Why can't your brains understand that?

    The youngsters of these freaks have brainwashed their kids to hate, to kill anybody who is not down with their bullshit.

  • The so called Palestinians (who are really Egyptians and Jordanians)are the worlds most vocal welfare recipients. Even if they occupied the land that Israel calls home, they would still be lazy, uneducated, filthy bums, just like all of the other Islamic shitholes. The Jews made the desert bloom, their neighbors, quite frankly, are only good for fertilizer.

      I'm with the rest of your repliers. Imagine Gaza run by, lets say, a bunch of secular Canadians. It would become a tourists haven. Fine hotels, sports, great weather and so on. But add Islam to anything, and anything goes to shit. And that is a fact.

      I wish to live in Gaza, I could make it like heaven. Unfortunately, the Palestinians don't want me there, they wanna kill me. So I withdrew from Gaza, but instead to bulid their own place, they still wanna kill me, but creating lies and rumors whining to the media that they are starving. You may give it a chance, go to Gaza and try to build it, I bet you'll be killed as soon you try to build anything. After all, they has no reason to live if it's not fighting Israel. Duh!
