Failure of the flotilla to reach Gaza means the 'starving' people will be denied those 3,000 love letters from the Audacity of Dopes' boat
Ah, well, I guess there’s always the Post Office. In the meantime, the people of Gaza will be very busy unloading the approx. 6,000 tons of goods – 240 truckloads – which Israel transfers into the Gaza Strip every single day of every single year.
INN – The products that arrive each day in Gaza include baby food, poultry, vegetables, construction materials, and other miscellaneous goods such as medicine, clothing, electrical equipment and hygiene products. Not to mention Gaza has seen an increase of 15% in annual GDP.
But those numbers don’t even include the regular transfer of luxury goods into the Gaza Strip, including daily deliveries of LCD screens, luxury cars such as Mercedes and Hyundai jeeps, modern refrigerators, and whirlpool bathtubs, more than enough evidence that confirms what the International Red Cross said, “There is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza.” That is unless you’re talking about the crisis of obesity. Gaza women rank #3 for the highest obesity rates in the world.
