Israeli media catches up on the Gaza mall

Arutz-7 and YNet finally caught up with the story of the Gaza Mall that I reported on Saturday night.

YNet notes that it is getting large crowds due to its air-conditioning. I wonder if the many Gaza homeless that we hear so much about will try to sleep in the mall, the way they do in American malls - and when they are kicked out, if the media will blame Israel?

Fox News blog also has a story about the mall - but, quoting UNRWA's Chris Gunness, it stresses that few Gazans can afford to buy anything there.  I guess that the people who built it and the store owners are really stupid for not realizing that they would have no customers for their "Fila sneakers, knock-off Barbie dolls, and even Italian chocolates."
