More photos from Starving Gaza

Are they still telling you that Gaza is starving? Are they quoting nebulous reports that strangely lack footnotes or substantiating data? Do you respond with scholarly peer reviewed medical literature that gets brushed aside as propaganda?

We've all been there.

Gaza and the West bank has obesity rates that rival the West, yet we keep hearing about the starving children. We can show photos of overflowing stores, and open air markets. We can show photos of hotels and restaurants. But people just don't want to be bothered with the facts.

I present to you the Almat'haf Hotel and Cultural House in Gaza. Its not nearly as nice as the Al-Mashtal, but its still pretty nice in a rustic, boutique hotel sort of way.

This is from their facebook page, btw.

Notice the date stamp on this photo- its from April of this year. For all you've heard about the water shortage in Gaza, how does this hotel manage to sustain a Koi pond?
