The number of people living in absolute poverty in Gaza has increased sharply since the blockade. Today, 80% of families in Gaza currently rely on humanitarian aid compared to 63% in 2006. In 2007, households were spending approximately 62% of their total income on food compared with 37% in 2004. As a result, food aid increased dramatically to meet the needs of the population. In 2008, there were over 1.1 million people—some three-quarters of Gaza's population—who are dependent on food aid. Since 1997, the number of families depending on UNRWA food aid has increased ten-fold.
UNRWA gives aid to 850,000 people, while 106,000 families receive financial help from the organisation, which employs 15,000 workers in special temporary employment programs, he said. There are 1.1 million refugees in the Strip, 320,000 of whom are living beneath the poverty line. According to UNRWA, 7,000 of those families are among the poorest in the world. Unemployment is 45 per cent.

If you look at our "alternative" news section and look at the source of all the stories i would say about 90% of them are from the main stream news, but hey we outsmarted them right?

Of course it must be FOX news right?
I don't even need to watch the video.
This is way FOX News viewers tend to be seriously misinformed.

Well, you didn't add the "chemtrailers" to your list, so maybe we can get you back...
Or, maybe not.
