[tweetmeme] The UN chief humanitarian official, John Holmes, visited Gaza yesterday and help a press conference where he talked about the improving conditions in the small strip. Apparently, having a factory that recycles bombed out buildings into cement and new mud huts constitute progress.
The illegal Israeli-Egyptian blockade of Gaza is suffocating the population. New cement, educational supplies and glass are just a few of the things that are not allowed to enter the strip. So Holmes comes to visit, you would expect some coverage from the moral folks of West, but, alas, there was none. Here is the video of Holmes’ press conference. The US response to the Gaza crisis is really shameful.
