'Operator, could you help me place this call?'

It seems that there's a little problem with the phones in Gaza (Hat Tip: NY Nana).
The local phone company Paltel said that 90 percent of Gaza's cellular system is out of order. Compounding the problem are the downing of landlines and the inability of technicians to reach work sites. Switchboards and mobile communications equipment have sustained heavy damage in air raids.

Hamas's leaders, who have been forced underground, have been forced to rely on old-fashioned walkie-talkies to maintain communication with terrorists. Most of the upper echelon orders are coming from Hamas headquarters in Damascus, manned by Khaled Mashaal.
Paltel has warned subscribers that they may be completely cut off from the outside world. Electricity blackouts have made it difficult for the population to receive radio and television programs, and television stations that have not been destroyed by aerial strikes often are not able to broadcast.

Paltel said three of its technicians have died or have suffered injuries.
Maybe the poor Palis can try talking like in the picture at right.

And because I really feel sorry for Hamas, here's a song to cheer them up. Let's go to the videotape.

Carl would say its good news. Hamas can't get its message out to the foreign media. And since Israel has wisely not allowed MSM journalists into Gaza, Hamas is not being able to send out pictures that would sway world opinion to their side. All in all, its a splendid little war and I don't have too much sympathy for their not being able to place calls to Damascus and Teheran. They should have thought of that before they took on Israel. I'm happy to see their clocks getting cleaned. Too bad no one can answer their phones - which is perhaps the best news thus far to come out of this war.
