How Israel is destroying Gaza’s economy

Martin Lejeune, German journalist

“More than 90% of Gaza’s agricultural output destroyed by Israel over summer, almost all farms destroyed. Israel destroyed 220 factories in Gaza, this constitutes around 70% of Gaza’s industrial output gone.There was no military justification for the destruction of these factories whatsoever. I stayed in Gaza for one month in a house with 72 Palestinian civilians, 60 of whom had been displaced. It was overcrowded, tap water wasn’t working anymore, we had to buy fuel, we had to bake our own bread as none available in shops. 220 factories were completely destroyed during the 7 weeks of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge. Israel has succeeded in turning a functional economy in Gaza into a third world territory in just 8 years, through the blockade and four large scale military assaults. Israel is not only attacking systematically civilians in their homes, but systematically destroying the economy of Gaza to make people dependent on aid.”

    They are pure evil and a curse on humanity…they are doing this all over the planet. They have to be culled once and for all. No wonder they were thrown out of every society and civilised countries. A danger to all of us. They have infiltrated and poisoned covertly. Cowards in every sense of the word. Usurpers and parasites. They have had their day and now it is up.

    The objective of the owners/government of Israel is to steal all Palestinian land and to kill or otherwise remove all the Palestinians.Because of the international outrage that would follow if they did this in one fell blow,they are doing it gradually,and Hamas is a great help to them in providing excuses for attack after attack.The loss of a few Israeli lives is a price they clearly find acceptable
