BBC News - Smuggling fuels Gaza's stalled economy

Notice how the BBC frame their report with everything is Israel's fault.

"The day Israel launched its 22-day offensive on Gaza , a year ago, Osama and his family lost most of their $70,000 life savings."

Buried in the article is this.

"The Hamas administration says more than US $100m invested by Gazans was lost in what turned out to be something like a pyramid scheme.

The brokers offered initial returns by paying "from me to you, from you to him and from him to me," explains economy minister Ziad Zaza, "like Madoff in the US".

In case your in doubt about the BBC's anti Israel reporting, there's this.

"And larger items such as fridges, washing machines, cows, motorbikes, disassembled cars, and - according to Israel - weapons are also moved through the tunnels."

Got that? "According to Israel". Palestinian terrorists would never smuggle weapons into Gaza, would they?

Hamas boasts new types of weapons smuggled into Strip

"Hamas on Friday boasted that it had managed to smuggle new types of weapons into the Gaza Strip despite the blockade, and published photographs of some of the arms it allegedly obtained."
