The humanitarian crisis in Gaza which we hear about in an endless terrorist/liberal loop is only getting worse.
Yup, last week, a luxury shopping mall opened in Gaza.
That fine blogger, Elder of Ziyon, reports:
At opening ceremonies attended by ministers and government officials, the Gaza Mall is a multi-story shopping center that includes food, clothing, perfumes, shoes, household appliances, office supplies and more.
The mall has a website, where we can see that it has air conditioning and parking, as well as delivery and other amenities that one would expect in any major mall.
The mall web page advertises “Israeli men’s trousers at an attractive price,” men’s shirts from the US, girl’s dresses from France and boy’s pants from Turkey.
How many times have you heard that Gaza is a vast concentration camp?
I am close with several concentration camp survivors and never has one of them mentioned a mall in Auschwitz. Hmm, maybe it just, y’know, slipped their minds.
And what about those flotillas of Jew-haters that seek to break Israel’s—but not Egypt’s—blockade in order to bring in humanitarian supplies? Do they know about the mall? Do they know about the luxury restaurants, the bustling food markets, the olympic-sized swimming pool?
Here’s a thought: maybe there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza. Maybe the Arab Muslim world and its leftist allies are—I know, this is hard to believe—lying through their teeth in order to cast a blood libel against The Jewish State.
Maybe, just maybe, the citizens of Gaza have a higher standard of living than most Arab Muslims. In fact, Gaza probably has a higher standard of living than Detroit, whose downward spiral was entirely predictible considering liberal democrats have been running that blighted city since forever.
A few pictures documenting the grinding poverty of Gaza AKA Hamastan:
Strange, the Gaza mall is stocked with Israeli food products—Zionist ketchup rocks!—but a U.S. grocery is boycotting all Israeli products, which, by the way, will directly hurt Arab/Israeli workers.

It’s time for Israel to deny Gaza fuel and electricity.
Turn out the lights and Gilad will be returned because the poor, impoverished Gazans will want to get back to their jihad of shopping.
It is the Ninth of Av, a solemn day of prayer, fasting and lamentations. On this day, we mourn the destruction of the First and Second Temples, and I personally, will be thinking about Gilad Shalit, his family, and the world’s cruel indifference.
