If you really take a close look there are semi modern homes all over Gaza that haven't been touched. There are no camps full of starving children and life goes on.

Their main income is charity and that's how they have lived for decades. Why should a Hamas Leader not have his own pool. A generator too.

After all in spite of all the claims and lies and propaganda they live very good life for refugees.

It was a concentration camp buddy, until January 2009.

After that the Good Guys took over the administration.

The jews still have to pass through that Hague War Crime Tribunal.

I hate to brake this to you but the jews did actually kill 15 hundred civilians after all.

These swimming pools you are talking about are going to be used as rain water storage tanks.

You see the jews prefer to use the Arabian water they get from them neighbors to wash their camels and mules than to spare a few drops to let the palestines quench them thirst.

ok heres what i dont understand.....why is it israels responsibility to help the gazans?

they have a wonderful government called hamas that has received the highest amount of monetary aid ( 18 billion to be exact) over the last 3 years from the international community and yet they have yet to build even one new school, hospital, or any infrastructure, they havent given any of the money to the people there to start businesses or to better their plight.

lets say that israel made peace with the palestinians left gaza alone as a state on its own why would it still be israels responsibility to let them into israel for work, to get supplies from israel ( which incidentally no arab country will let them), even egypt their neighbour doesnt allow any palestinians to cross the border, they dont want them.

i say let the palestinians finally fend for themselves, let hamas use the money they have for what it is supposed to be used for, not to line their own pockets.there is plenty of money to start businesses, to help their own farmers, to build their own hospitals.

Well it sounds as though someone sure stuffed up ...maybe they were getting worried about having to explain the growing number of deaths to an increasingly sceptical world !

If you include the bomb craters that have filled with water, I guess the answer would be "yes".
