A Palestinian man smokes a water pipe as he sits in Khan Younis beach in the southern Gaza strip June 4, 2007. Residents of the Khan Younis refugee camp said their venture to the beach was a way to respite from the Israeli military actions that had killed over 50 Palestinians, mostly militants, in the last month.

You see, it is congenitally impossible for Reuters to publish a picture of Palestinian Arabs having fun without finding some bizarre reason to slam Israel. If they look sad, it is because of Israeli actions; if they are happy, it is despite Israeli actions.

The fact that nearly 300 Palestinian Arabs have been killed this year by each other is no reason for a "respite" at the beach; no, Gazans don't get too bothered by that, in Reuterville. All their stress comes from Israel, of course.

And once again we need to wonder: why is there a "refugee camp" in Khan Younis? It's not like it is Syria or Lebanon - there is nothing at all stopping Palestinian Arabs from building new towns and villages for "refugees." Clearly the residents can come and go as they please, as this picture shows.

There is nothing stopping Arab nations from funding houses and community centers and town halls in Gaza.

Except for the fact that it would mean less money for RPGs, Katyushas, dynamite and Qassams.

Perhaps one day Reuters will ask these same questions, rather than parrot provable Palestinian Arab lies. But I won't bet on it.

UPDATE: Soccer Dad finds the exact fact I couldn't find a link to in the above article. In 1977, Israel actually tried to move Palestinian Arabs out of the "camps" and into real houses, and the UN condemned them for it, in UN General Assembly Resolution 32/90:
1. Calls once more upon Israel:

(a) To take effective steps immediately for the return of the refugees concerned to the camps from which they were removed in the Gaza Strip and to provide adequate shelters for their accommodation;

(b) To desist from further removal of refugees and destruction of their shelters;
To the UN, improving the lives of Palestinians is not desirable.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون



This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 14 years and 30,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
