Check this out if you are visiting Gaza

Are you or someone you know planning to visit Gaza anytime soon? If so, I'm sure you'll want to check out the brand new water park in Khan Yunis in southern Gaza. Here are some pictures so that you can see what it looks like (Hat Tip: David H):

Looks like they're starving, doesn't it?

Reminds me of the old joke about the beggar who accosts a wealthy woman, claiming he hasn't eaten in 3 days.

"Dah-ling," she reples, "FORCE yourself!"

There may well be a water park in Gaza, but it still has a 45% unemployment rate, due to the blockade.

One of the highest unemployment figures in the world.

U.N. Charts High Jobless Rate in Gaza, Despite Israel’s Easing of Blockade

JERUSALEM — A report issued Tuesday shows unemployment in Gaza standing at 45.2 percent for the second half of 2010, one of the highest rates in the world, even though Israel eased its blockade of the Palestinian coastal strip in that period.

Most new jobs in Gaza are in the public sector. Palestinians worked in April at a cement recycling factory in Jebaliya.

The report, by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which aids registered Palestinian refugees and their descendants, shows the jobless rate up over the first half of the year, with a loss of some 8,000 jobs.

If they weren't getting so much 'international aid' money (not to mention UNRWA), there might be an economic incentive to build an economy and create jobs for the population instead of amassing weapons and encouraging suicide bombers.
