Hamas building a newer, bigger mall in Gaza

Firas Press reports that Hamass is planning to build Gaza's largest mall in the heart of Gaza City.

It will be built on a 44 dunam (10 acre) site in the Saraya compound, which was a Hamas (formerly Fatah) police/military base that was blown to smithereens during Cast Lead.

Of course, as everyone knows, the mall will be filled with products but empty of customers. While the old Gaza meme was one of of starvation and humanitarian crisis,  the new meme is that there are plenty of goods in Gaza, no one can afford to buy them. Gaza is apparently filled with really dumb shop-owners who keep buying products that they cannot possibly sell.
