News From the “Prison Camp”

Is summer dragging on? Are you tired of shopping? As the kids get restless, where better to spend a happy afternoon than at the Crazy Water Aqua Fun Park. In Gaza.

“The landscaped water park features three swimming pools, three water slides, ponds with pedal boats, a restaurant, a cafe, and a quiet area shaded by a tent where adults can sit on carpets and listen to music.”

Don’t tell Ken Clarke, he will want to build one at Pentonville.

        Also, my grandfather was detained during the war at a prison camp in Bavaria, which allowed the detainees (British and American businessmen who had found themselves behing enemy lines) to put on plays, stroll around in suits and even have a game or two of cricket. Nevertheless, they still considered it a prison due to the men with guns who would prevent them leaving on pain of death.

        Are you suggesting that Gaza is a paradise, and that there’s no problem? If there was no problem, why the need to board and search ships destined for Gaza?

        Nobody with an ounce of sense suggests that there isn’t terrorist activity. It’s just that for somewhere that doesn’t have a crisis (as you put it) there seems to have been a problem for a very long time. Strongly suspect that things are not that simple; if they were, the problem would have been solved many moons ago.

          I wouldnt be surprised if there was a crisis, in certain areas (I dont know, havent been there), but its one of their own making.

            It appears to have a rather wobbly and unregulated free market, powered by stuff they can smuggle in.

I’m a completely neutral bloke living in North-West England (and of neither of the main religions involved) who’s knowledge of this subject is limited to what I learn from the media – so in other words, not all that deep. However, even I can work out that as there are deaths on both sides, there’s clearly a big problem. Why? Beyond my understanding. However, it is clear from the media that not all of Gaza is a paradise.

            If the Middle East question is to be answered, perhaps we might all contribute by moderating language and recognising that both sides have points worth considering.

          If the Israelies really wanted to hurt the people living in Gaza do you not think it would be prudent to start by cutting of all of their power supplies ? You never know – this might actually result in cholera taking hold and really doing some damage. Get it into your head that the terrorists work from within civilian communities (for goodness sake – even the BEEB managed to show a program with proved this without a shadow of doubt !) purely so that they can cry foul when said civilians get killed.
          If they didn’t hide amongst the civvies – then who would be up in arms about the israelies killing terrorists in retaliation – uhhh – Nobody ! The PLO learned in the 70’s that killing civvies was not a popular thing to do and used that knowledge to turn foolish peoples ideas around. They use propaganda me old mate ! Learn to sift the truth from the flimflam. Maybe turn off the BEEB once in a while.

          my uncle has been to Gaza many times. He reports that, if there is a whole square of perfectly solid houses bar one that’s been damaged, the camera crews will make sure they get the damaged building in the shot.

          Likewise with the infamous ‘wall’ – in most places it’s little more than a chainlink fence which is more easily policed than an open field, but camera crews regularly go to the only strip (in the middle of Jerusalem) which is high, fortified and riddled with bullet holes.

          The fact of the matter is, media images play up the fighting and devastation in order to sell more stories. They’re hardly going to report on how little impact these things have on day to day lives, are they?

      Gaza Strip trivia.

      Cornwallis Street in Barrow in Furness is a street which in the 1990s was made up of nightclubs. It earned the nickname “the Gaza Strip” by locals by way of being Britain’s most violent street for several years running due to the enormous numbers of fights which broke out there, with stabbings and even murders occurring.

      Ahhhhhhhhh…. Great days indeed! I used to party down the Gaza 3 – 4 nights a week in it’s heyday and although I was only once involved in a fight myself. I held up scoring cards for quite a few.

      Now with 24 hour drinking, the nightclubs don’t all throw the piss-heads onto the street at the same time, which was usually when a lot of fights broke out. the Princess Selandia floating nightclub in the docks also meant that not all the piss-heads were contained in one street. Now people have a choice of location and they do not all come into contact with each other at once. Violent incidents have plummeted.

      The Gaza is now a sad and quiet ghost of it’s former, vibrant and dangerous form.

      You don’t need a tunnel from Mexico. They are not allowed to police the border at all in Arizona and an area extending a couple of hundred miles into the USA so that the drug gangs can get the narcotics into the US markets easily.

      This is with the direct contrivance of the Federal Government. The Arizona State legislature wants to police the border as they are constitutionally mandated to do. the Federal Government is preventing them from doing so.

      And they are targeting Texas too.

      ” After 16 days of denials by Laredo law enforcement and local officials regarding a Mexican drug cartel takeover of a Laredo area ranch, a Texas police blotter proves the alleged incident did in fact happen and that multiple agencies responded to the scene of a seized U.S. ranch.

      Think about it for a moment.

      One of the most brutal drug cartels operating in Mexico crossed the U.S. border and took a ranch from its lawful owner.

      Intimidation has arrived along the southern border.”

        Oh dear. The rehab just isn’t working.

        I see you’ve had a lot of rain down South. Up here at Castle MacTavish it’s been glorious and the birds are giving some very decent sport. The Scotch countryside is just so different from the towns – even more than in England – the towns are full of fat, sour-faced, unstable loons on benefits, while the countryside has decent, cheerful folk (mostly on benefits too, it has to be said).

    Martin Day BBC political correspondent says:

    The right wing political blog site Order Order responsible for the failure of the Tories to gain an overall majority in the General Election is to be scrapped, it was announced today.

    Communities and Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles said that Order Order had “lost its way” and would be disbanded.

    The blogging duties will now pass to the Conservative Home – while its in-house jokes will be transferred to the private sector.

    The Israelis built the “Crazy Water” complex for the Palestinians to make amends for the accidental battle on those boats.

    “Crazy Water Aqua” Gaza

    into Google, and the results show that Israel has carpet-bombed the web with what you are supposed to think about this resort. Guido has just cut-and-pasted, as a good little uncritical friend of Israel.

    Soooo, Israel is helping Hamas to be corrupt because it helps Israel. Tell me something I don’t know. There have always been collaborators, and collaborators get rewarded. And then shot.

    Facts not Fictions says:

    Gaza’s problem (and by extension that of Israel and the Palestinian Authority) is that, unlike in a concentration camp, Gaza is in a demographic trap. The population is growing at an enormous rate and life expectancy is rising.

    The problem is that they want land and see it in Israel (and that is instrumentalised in the same way by the Hamas extremists as by corrupt Islamic goverrnments throughtout the world who have demonised Israel to distract from their own problems. Problems caused by similar Third World burgeoning populations and lack of opportunity.

    If the Gazan population has its way, Israel will cease to exist.

    There is a massive Islamic inspired propaganda campaign underway to score points eg the Turkish sponsored flotilla.

    Human Development Index

    The HDI measures the average progress of a country in human development. The Human Poverty Index (HPI-1), focuses on the proportion of people below certain threshold levels in each of the dimensions of the human development index – living a long and healthy life, having access to education, and a decent standard of living. By looking beyond income deprivation, the HPI-1 represents a multi-dimensional alternative to the $1.25 a day (PPP US$) poverty measure.

    The HPI-1 value of 6.0% for Occupied Palestinian Territories, ranks 24th among 135 countries for which the index has been calculated.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”
