The 'concentration camp' of Gaza
Some facts:


A study of an urban Palestinian population found 49% of women and 30% of men to be obese, and a later study including Palestinians in rural West Bank found 37% obesity levels for women and 18% amongst men. Among adolescents, a study taking place at the national level in both West Bank and Gaza found the prevalence of overweight for both genders



According to the U.S. Census population growth from 1990-2008 in Gaza and West Bank was 106% from 1.9 million (1990) to 3.9 million persons



Gaza Strip Life expectancy at birth
Life expectancy at birth: total population: 74.16 years
male: 72.48 years
female: 75.95 years (2012 est.)

Re: The 'concentration camp' of Gaza
Thanks for sharing.

I understand also that the residents were denied escape by Egypt when modern Israel was formed, in order to have a continued grievance with Israel.

Let all facts emerge; it's the surest way to resolve it all properly.

On the face of it, Israel appears to use disproportionate force; and so humane tendencies lead those of us without prior bias to wish they would go easier. Yet again, the atrocities suffered by their people in WW2 invoke empathy too.

A world at peace is my dream; who's with me?

Don't hold your breath; I fully expect the barrage of Latuff-esque Pallywood distortions to continue unabated.

Carlos Latuff gets paid to put these words - "I am Palestinian" - in the mouths of long-dead Warsaw ghetto Jewish children.

That's probably more words right there than the food they got fed.

Maybe Latuff should consider changing that meme to "I am one third of a Palestinian"

They're not really that fat, it's just that they forgot to take off their suicide vests before entering the (Israeli) hospital to get weighed.

You're not very keen on accuracy are ya? It was stated by the OP that Palestinians in the Gaza open-air concentration camp were obese. Do you know what obese means? It means the people were overweight, according to the conventional dietary standards of the time and area. Another poster posted a photo from Dachau. You honestly don't see people in that photo who would be considered obese? If not, you fail to understand the definition of obese. Words means things. Open a dictionary.

Re: The 'concentration camp' of Gaza
If these reports are true, you must consider why a portion of the population is obese. A poisoned thyroid could be at the root of the problem, or it could be vitamin deficiency. Very poor people tend toward obesity because their diets revolve around starchy foods. Look at the native Hawaiians, American Indians, Mexicans, etc. If the Palestinians are having a weight problem, I assure you, it isn't because they are prospering. Fat does not equal happy or wealthy. And as for the concentration camp inmates of WWII, they were fed well and cared for UNTIL the allies bombed the hell out of the railways making it impossible to bring in supplies near the end of the war. Typhoid swept through the camps as well and overwhelmed the infirmaries. Anne Frank was one of those who died IN AN INFIRMARY. Why have hospital facilities in a death camp? That never made sense to me.

Re: The 'concentration camp' of Gaza
If these reports are true, you must consider why a portion of the population is obese. A poisoned thyroid could be at the root of the problem, or it could be vitamin deficiency. Very poor people tend toward obesity because their diets revolve around starchy foods. Look at the native Hawaiians, American Indians, Mexicans, etc. If the Palestinians are having a weight problem, I assure you, it isn't because they are prospering. Fat does not equal happy or wealthy. And as for the concentration camp inmates of WWII, they were fed well and cared for UNTIL the allies bombed the hell out of the railways making it impossible to bring in supplies near the end of the war. Typhoid swept through the camps as well and overwhelmed the infirmaries. Anne Frank was one of those who died IN AN INFIRMARY. Why have hospital facilities in a death camp? That never made sense to me.

No one is claiming that Bergen-Belsen was a death camp.

Go ahead, compare the life expectancy of, say, the Native Americans to the Palestinians and see who comes out ahead.
