Video: The humanitarian crisis in Gaza

There is a humanitarian crisis in Gaza. No really, there is a humanitarian crisis in Gaza. See? No scare quotes.

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Will).

So there is a humanitarian crisis in Gaza. It's all those fat people.

My only criticism is that the type face is difficult to read in the video. Otherwise it's okay.

This is what the UK Daily Mail's Peter Hitchens had to say about Gaza's "humanitarian crisis":

"We must all get ready for another season of ignorant attacks on Israel as a new fleet of alleged relief ships heads for Gaza. It is not relief. It is propaganda. How do I know? Last September I visited Gaza, with some trepidation.

I found plenty of misery there, though it is clear that much of this is maintained for propaganda reasons and could easily be put right by the rich Arab world if it wanted to. But I also found many things that the propaganda reports do not mention – including a shopping mall, beach parties and luxury restaurants.

I inspected the enormous tunnels through which large quantities of goods, including cattle and building materials, are smuggled from Egypt. There is also, in this so-called prison camp, quite a lot of open space, much of which I am glad to say is now being used for the cultivation of food.

Those who doubt my word are urged to read a series of reports in the Left-wing New York Times, which last week reported the opening in Gaza City of a second shopping mall and two luxury hotels."
