(NEWS) Egyptian Journalist Describes 'Absolute Prosperity' In Gaza

"With Hamas telling tales of deprivation and suffering in Gaza, Egyptian journalist Ashraf Abu al-Houl has added his report to others who were surprised to discover a 'prosperous' Gaza in which prices are low and luxury businesses are booming.

Al-Houl's story of his trip to Gaza and his realization that 'in actual terms, Gaza is not under siege' was written up in the Egyptian daily Al-Ahram and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

'A sense of absolute prosperity prevails, as manifested by the grand resorts along and near Gaza's coast. Further, the site of the merchandise and luxuries filling the Gaza shops amazed me,' he reported."
