Consider spending money on something other than rockets and tunnels? Gaza’s economy ‘on verge of collapse’ says World Bank

How much did these cost?

Repeated rounds of conflict, internal divisions and the embargo Israel and Egypt impose have left the territory “on the verge of collapse,” the report sad, with its 1.8 million population facing poverty and destitution despite vast aid.

“Blockades, war and poor governance have strangled Gaza’s economy and the unemployment rate is now the highest in the world,” said the report, drafted by Steen Lau Jorgensen, the World Bank’s director for Gaza and the West Bank.

It is to be presented in Brussels on May 27.

“Gaza’s exports virtually disappeared and the manufacturing sector has shrunk by as much as 60 percent. The economy cannot survive without being connected to the outside world”…

Boo hoo! They brought this on themselves 100%.

    Just slime the tunnel with VX. Sit back and watch the fun.

    You voted in a government that brought only ruin. You felt you needed no industry because you would beg and steal for what you felt entitled to. Egged on by western leftists you believed you would drive the Jews into the sea and inherit all that was theirs. Well look at you now. Eat shit and die you stupid stupid dupes.

      They also immediately destroyed all the successful buisnesses left by all the expelled Jews.

    Say hello to the Gophinator, invented by the Maize family of Saskatchewan. “I use it to inject anhydrous ammonia vapor, which is heavier than air, into pocket gopher holes and rat holes under grain bins. It gives you virtually 100 percent kill”. Costs $30 to fill a tank, good for taking care of 300 to 500 holes.

    Just a suggestion…

      I have mentioned this method before, I agree.

      Yes, I recall. It’s a great solution, but one the world wouldn’t allow. They would oppose it because it is allegedly inhumane, but the reality is that it would be far too effective. Of course, as I think I may have interjected before, a few large bricks of dry ice to fill the tunnels with CO2 when they thaw would also do the trick.

        Even better would be to introduce lots of wild boar in the tunnels.

      Look, Jews gassing palis is not good optics.

      • Minicapt

        Add some nitrous oxide to the mix, for giggles.

          Well, that’s funny but you know what I mean.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Obastard just agreed to send Israel bunker busters. Seems like there’s a target rich environment right there.

    • mobuyus

      The Israel’s will have more productive use for those bunker busters in the near future.

        The Israelis are also developing airborne electronic tunnel detectors that can be installed in drones.

        • mobuyus

          They got em already.

      Don’t sell the bear skin before killing the bear as we say in French. In other words let us wait until they have actually been delivered and received.
