As ever, you can rely on the BBC ….to ensure you don’t get the full picture.

 BBC reports this:

‘Gaza receives first car shipment from Israel since 2007′ and uses it as anexcuse to bash Israel….Gazans unemployed, can’t afford cars …’With so muchpoverty and unemployment, few people can afford a new car, says the BBC’s JonDonnison in Gaza.’

Are you welling up yet? Remember, sympathy for Hamastan is essential.  

 But they don’t report this:

The ‘democratically elected’ Hamas threatens to kill kidnapped Gilad Schalit ifdeals not done:

“Hamas posted a video of kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit on Youtube onMonday, suggesting he would be killed if a deal was not soon reached. In the animated video, two masked men are shown standing on either side ofGilad Schalit in a dark room, with one of them holding an AK-47 assualt rifle. 

At the end of the 24-second video, gun shots are heard as the movie goes blackand the words “Is the mission completed?” are seen written in Arabic.”

    There is a side to this that has not been reported. The Gaza car dealers who have smuggled cars through tunnels (as acknowledged in the article) and paid a premium for this plus Hamas taxes, have a complaint. Clearly they wouldn’t have imported them if the customers weren’t there to pay for them.

    What are they to do with their (now) overpriced inventory if Israel allows cheaper cars in?

      Another issue. Assuming George Galloway’s Viva Palestina convoy reaches Gaza – a big ‘IF’ – what need do Gazans have for a mixed collection of vehicles of all makes and models, left and right hand drives, if new cars (with parts, warranty and service) are being imported?

        He’s going to struggle. Egypt has banned him from Egyptian soil.
        He might get away with it if he puts on a burka.

          He wore a catsuit… for the right price, so who knows?

          Ah, the John Simpson gambit. That might just work.

          I believe there was a skirmish ot two when Galloway went into Gaza in early 2009, shortly after the Israeli attack, between his motley crew and the Egyptians.  
          Great news that they wont let him in. For a propagandist and self-publicist like Galloway, it’ll really hurt to have to quietly offload his goods at the port without any photo ops of him hugging chief Gaza terrorist Ishmael Haniya. a little less hurtful, but still galling, will be the knowledge that the Egyptians will be far less likely than the Israelis to dutifuly hand over the aid.

          Looks like there will soon be a number of Egyptians walking around the markets with fattened wallets and broad smiles.

        Not all the poor Gazans can afford Mercedes.

    Twenty new cars and who will buy them?

    Who can afford to pay perhaps twenty thousand dollars for a new car? Well the BBC are not asking the right questions are they? What about the billions of dollars in aid that pours into Gaza? We know that the hamas gansters take their cut of the aid shipments and they sell their cut on the open market, we know that the head gangsters have their fingers in every aid scam and we know that a few powerful and rich gangsters live the high life protested by their own force of gunmen and armed thugs.
    Aid is big business in Gaza and there is big money to be made and we know that hamas controls the aid flow and it controls the money pouring into Gaza from aid agencies like the UNRWA.
    So lets join the dots shall we? The BBC seems unable or unwilling to find out who is able to afford new cars and just where the money comes from but isnt it obvious that the only people rich enough to afford new cars are hamas officials who syphon off aid for their own benefit?
    Hiw about the BBC sends its on site reporters to investigate the giant fraud in  Gaza? Well we all know the answer to that dont we? The BBC knows full well that any attempt to find out the truth will mean a kidnapping or murder of the reporter involved, just the threat keeps the BBC cowards onside and the BBC knows full well that any critisism of hamas will bring the wrath of the aid industry who also fear the wrath and revenge of the hamarse gangsters.

    So the Gaza charade continues, the aid is stolen and the rich gangsters get richer, the poor suffer and those who speak out are killed and all because the BBC are cowards.

    Jon Donnison is a beauty. I don’t believe he knows there’s a bit of a war on, or why. He  sees Gaza as a UK suburb going through a spot of economic hardship.
    Apart from a cursory mention of near-daily rocket and mortar attacks last week, which inconveniently held up the car delivery, you’d never suspect that Gaza is run by people who destroy water parks and restaurants because people might have some fun in them, let alone guess the reason for the blockade.
    By the way, Hamas denies making the vid. They did make others of course.

    In some ways far more disturbing than this, and from the fatah PA “good guys” so beloved by the beeboids


    So lets get this straight. In the future “palestine” any Arab landowner that sells land to ANY JEW, (not just Israeli as the article asserts) will receive the death penalty.

    Unreported by the beeboid or what??

    A racist and apartheid piece of “palestinian” legislation is totally ignored, while the vicious lie of Israeli “apartheid” is pedalled by the beeboid at every opportunity. They are too smart to assert this crap themselves, they let psc and other affiliated -wretches do it for them.

    As usful factoid also for any of use debating with Israeli “apartheid” nutjobs.


  5. David Preiser (USA) says:

    This is the first thing going to Gaza from Israel….except, you know, silly things like fuel and electricity.  Too bad the poor Palestinians destroyed all those greenhouses when the nasty old Jews left Gaza.  Might have helped, you know?


  6. Barbara says:

    Oh, the poor Gazans.  How many people can afford new cars these days?  Plenty of “rich” Americans are glad to have a roof over their heads and food on the table, a new car is far out of reach for many of us.


  7. Pounce says:

    Just for the info, those nasty jews allowed in another 20 cars yesterday and 5 truck loads of spare parts/tires and oil and where did i get that information from?
    From the Fatah news agency Maan.
    When the news agency of a terrorist group reports much more factually than the bBC then you know its time somebody took the bBC to task.

    Nice to know that, despite the considerable hardships that result from housing terrorists, economic downturns, border control, ‘curtailment of movement’ and lack of cash, Hamas can still have a good old knees up.  (Attend otherwise knees off).
