Gaza’s prosperous regions

Saw this interesting article the other day.   Seems just like Portsmouth or Jerusalem that have people in poor and rich areas, not all of Gaza is hit by poverty, even if the media shows it this way.  Interesting that shopping malls and big swimming pools have recently opened when there is supposed to be a shortage of building materials.

This is not to show that I don’t care about people in Gaza, its just more that their problems are less caused by Israel and more by rule from Hamas and Hezbollah who keep them in bondage, and kept the worldwide media in the dark by painting a different picture of what is happening, where other troubled places like Sudan get much less coverage in the news.

Hezbollah’s friends at CNN

More evidence that mainstream news sites aren’t always pleasant and fair to the peace process in the middle east.   Apparently one of the senior editors of CNN’s middle east department, wrote on twitter about a being a sad day about this week’s death of one of the founding fathers of of Hezbollah, Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah. Worrying stuff indeed.
