Yes I do. Will I bother uploading them? No. [edit on 11-6-2010 by Skyfloating]
In the Gaza Strip, the situation is the most critical. The food security of its 1.5 million people has been steadily deteriorating since Israeli sanctions in June 2007 including a suspension of all exports, a decrease of imports and tight restrictions on the type of goods permitted to enter through crossings -- frequently closed by Israel on security grounds, citing Gaza-based militant attacks.

You're the fourth person in this thread implying Im either a disinfo-agent, the secret owner of this site, a mossad-agent or IDF.
Keep it up guys, you're making your cause or group look really bright
If any of you had ever actually travelled to Palestine you'd know that what I am reporting is true.
GPO recommends a restaurant in Gaza," said the head of sarcastic letter sent today to the Government Press Office on behalf of foreign reporters covering the events in the Middle East. "for the arrival of foreign journalists traveling to Gaza to deliver humanitarian reports of alleged problems in the area controlled by Hamas," it was explained at The letter, "as part of efforts to assist the work of journalists in the region, the Government Press Office glad to draw your attention toa menu attached to andinformation on the Restaurant Roots - Club in Gaza. "
Later in the letter recommends that GPO journalists to beep - Stroganoff restaurant mentioned the possibility to get a discount by presenting a press pass. Also, GPO recommends that foreign journalists planning to travel to Gaza to visit the swimming pool was opened there recently, and coffee fancy. Attached to the letter but a link toa video clip in which the look, the letter, "the luxury facilities" instead.
"The message speaks for itself," said Danny Seaman, director of the Government Press Office, in conversation with "The Seventh Eye."
At least I did not understand if it is serious or a joke.
"Because you must be a journalist, then you no sense of humor."
That is a joke?
"It's no joke, the restaurant is. Journalists know the place."
It's a way to say that the claims that a humanitarian crisis in Gaza are not true?
"You must be a young journalist, so completely was not affected even lack a sense of humor."
According to a sign, having understood Bela"m that foreign journalists are going to visit Gaza to cover the "rally ostensibly humanitarian crisis, without prominently display things real and comprehensive", it was decided to turn their attention to the existence of luxury restaurants and swimming pools.
One can imagine a situation in which one side has a luxury restaurant on the other hand has a broad layer of the population that receives the minimum required.
"You speak of Tel - Aviv? The New - York? About London? About Paris? Rally I do not see anyone coming out of these places. Nobody tells you that Gaza is a normal place. All based on the rally base to media reports highlighting the fact that there's a terrible crisis. Gaza is not like thirty years ago in Ethiopia. Gaza is like other places. Achshaitonim ignore and not report normal life there, they have a political purpose, and we point out the hypocrisy that exists. I'm just suggesting to those journalists who must have come out this week and give expression of the rally this joke, this hypocrisy of those active pro - Palestinian, or as they call them peace activists and human rights, what they talk about really. "
You do not think sarcastic approach may create antagonism?
"And that took care of that this matter seriously and we have contributed something? Try something else for a change. Will be those who love and who not, it really does not bother me."
According to a sign, a letter received sarcastic comments did not surprise him at all. "Those journalists who know the situation," he says, "understood the joke and laughed. Those who exploit their position in the international press to serve as a Palestinian propaganda heretics course were insulted and angry. Each player played his part, and I got what I wanted."
