    The al-Mashtal doesn't have tourists and sits next to a military training camp, but its very existence is a symbol of optimism

    I heard Gaza has some good hotels, restaurants and water parks. I bet the shawarmas are good too.

    There are places in Israel where men cannot sit next to women and women cannot have bare arms.

    The UN ranks Israel among the 15 best countries to live in (out of 170 countries) in the world and with the highest qualities of life, emphasizing human development, political and cultural freedom and equality in education, healthcare, life expectancy and income, ahead of England, Spain, Greece, Italy, Finland, Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg and Austria

    Indices & Data | Human Development Reports (HDR) | United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

    Human Development is a development paradigm that is about much more than the rise or fall of national incomes. It is about creating an environment in which people can develop their full potential and lead productive, creative lives in accord with their needs and interests. People are the real wealth of nations. Development is thus about expanding the choices people have to lead lives that they value. And it is thus about much more than economic growth, which is only a means —if a very important one —of enlarging people’s choices.

    Fundamental to enlarging these choices is building human capabilities —the range of things that people can do or be in life. The most basic capabilities for human development are to lead long and healthy lives, to be knowledgeable, to have access to the resources needed for a decent standard of living and to be able to participate in the life of the community. Without these, many choices are simply not available, and many opportunities in life remain inaccessible.

    Memo To Hotel Guests: Never Fly The Fatah Flag Or You Will Never Return Home! :lol:

    Palestine Press Agency: Hamas arrested and beat a group of women holding a protest at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in central Gaza City on Saturday.

    The women were celebrating the 46th anniversary of Fatah's first terror attack.

    "Witnesses said that members of Hamas attacked the women with batons, tore up their flags and took the women to a detention center, shouting curses and insults." http://www.palpress.co.uk/arabic/
