“World’s Largest Open Air Concentration Camp” in Gaza Has Too Many Cars

It’s a Kia Concentration Camp

As you already know, the “People of Gaza” are being starved to death by Israel. There’s no food, there’s no water, even the sun is gone. All that’s left are a few luxury hotels, a water park (which was eventually torched by Islamists for being immoral) and a shopping mall.

But now the starving people of Gaza are plagued by another serious first world problem. They have too many cars.

The general administration at the Gaza government’s transportation ministry announced Wednesday that in February the number of cars entering Gaza was reduced due to oversupply.

Head of imports at the ministry Basel Deeb told Ma’an that the number of cars transferred to the Gaza Strip was much less than the previous three months.

“We imported 63 cars from Egypt and 242 from Israel, and that’s a small number,” said Deeb.

He pointed out that people were not ordering more cars, meaning there were enough already in Gaza.

The sector needs more taxis and commercial cars, but the embargo imposed over the sector prevents the access of these needed cars, he pointed out.

I could ask why they don’t just use a regular car as a taxi, but then the residents of the worst concentration camp in history since Camp Wakanwa for Overweight Boys ’89 wouldn’t have something to blame Israel for.

Why does Gaza have too many cars? One answer is that Islamist militias stole a bunch of cars while they were fighting to “liberate” Libya and smuggled those cars back into Gaza for sale.

Luxury cars with Libyan plates are becoming a common sight in the Gaza Strip, a surprising side-effect of the unrest in the north African country.

Sufian Ahmad, a 36-year-old storeowner, said he had decided to buy a new Kia SUV for $50,000 (Dh184,000).

Mr Amin said he paid taxes on each car to Gaza’s Hamas government and the tunnel smugglers, and that there were now “dozens” of vehicles coming in from Libya every week. Customers tended to want 2011 and 2012 Hyundai Sonatas, Kia and Hyundai SUVs, BMWs and 4-wheel-drive Toyotas, he said.

“Now customers are not asking for the cars we import via Israel,” he said. “Most of them ask if we have Libyan or Egyptian cars.

Cars start at $24,000, with sedans going for $48,000 and SUVs costing as much as $100,000, he said.

Somebody help these people! They’re having to make do with 2012 Hyundai Sonatas! Where are their Caddies? Meanwhile the Mercedes, once a staple of the Arab world, is being turned down by the suffering people of Gaza.

About 40 cars a week are brought in to Gaza through the Kerem Shalom land crossing, according to the report. Dealers have had to lower their prices between $2,000 to $8,000, depending on model and type due to the saturation in the sector.

Ismail Bran, chairman of the Car Dealers Association of Gaza, pointed to the Mercedes as a good example of what is happening. “Estimated at $65,000, a dealer is fortunate to be able to sell a Mercedes at $60,000 under the current circumstances,” he said.

Tragic, isn’t it.

Look at what Israel has done to these people. The Zionist Entity has glutted them with so many Mercedes that the starving car dealers of Gaza can only sell them at sixty grand each.

If you have a strong heart and can refrain from weeping, gaze upon this tragic scene at at a car dealership in Gaza. The language is Arabic, but the feeling of hanging around a dodgy car dealership checking out stolen cars that were repainted is a universal human experience that requires no words.

    Mercedes are old hat to these people? Really? Those poor suffering darlings!

      Few understand the lucrative business dealings which underground smuggling tunnels have brought to Gaza – even luxury cars and many other items, items most Americans would salivate over!

      Trust me on this, I know "this one and that one" who have seen the "Gazan concentration camps". Aside from some squalor areas, not unlike ghettos in American 'hoods, there are MANY luxury areas with private swimming pools, huge homes, fancy shops and incredible restaurants!

      The issue is not that the world wants to believe they are downtrodden because they want nothing more, however, Israel's leaders are so absymal in their public diplomacy,incapable of relating the real facts. This is where the onus lies – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/03/07/presenting-pa

    I am shocked and horrified at the subhuman conditions in Gaza. Aren't the peace-loving jihadis worried that cars imported from The Zionist Entity may emit magic death rays? Even worse, there may be
    rotting gefilte fish inside the door panels, put there by the evil Jews to stink up the cars' interiors. Note to the I.A.F. Carpet bomb Gaza; get it all over with, once and for all!

    So, what happened to all their camels, and donkeys? Did they wind up between buns in Taco Bells and McDonald's inEurope? Has Al Gore been alerted to the environmental disaster unfolding in Gaza? Does the Gaza government have an EPA? The poor people of Gaza, it's so unfair. Now they have to drive Hamas Hyundais and Palestinian Prius's.

      Mainly there for tourists. Also never ride one for a photo as a favorite trick of theirs is to quote one price before you're on the camel and another once you want to get off and can't.

    From the moment the Jewish People re-established sovereignty in their ancient homeland, they sought genuine peace with all of their neighbors. Unfortunately, their neighbors did not wish to share a peaceful existence with them.

        Did you know that there was never any country called Palestine?

        Check out any map of the Middle East and see for yourself. You will find Palestine listed as a region as it always has been, but definitely not a country.

        Because of these lies, the so-called "Palestinians" feel justified in sending suicide bombers to kill women, children, babies, old men, old women and noncombatant citizens.

        Because of these lies, the United Nations and the media of the world are condemning Israel who is acting less harshly than any other country would act in retaliation for such heinous attacks.

    The Arab propagandists and apologists almost never mentioned that in 1948, Arab armies launched a war against a one-day-old Israel.

    The end result of the 1948-49 Israeli War of Independence was the creation of a Jewish State slightly larger than that which was proposed by the 1947 United Nations Resolution 181!

    It must be noted that in 636 C.E.(A.D.) ~ back when the Arabs marauders came to the land and uprooted even more of its Jews, they did not form any Arab nation there… and certainly not a "Palestinian" nation. They were simply "Arabs" who, as did others before them, moved into a geo-political area called "Palestine!"

    I think Rachel Maddow and Anderson Cooper should host a gay pride parade in Gaza while investigating just how brutal this open air concentration camp really is.

    But now, I think I'll have to go have a good cry over the plight of the poor, persecuted paleswine.

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    Nah.

    Gaza is the worlds largest open air MENTAL HOSPITAL..

    Besieged Palestinian Gaza is an experiment in provocation. Stuff one and a half million people into a tiny space, stifle their access to water, electricity, food and medical treatment, destroy their livelihoods, and humiliate them regularly…and, surprise, surprise – they turn hostile. Now why would you want to make that experiment? Because the hostility you provoke is the whole point. Now under attack you can cast yourself as the victim, and call out the helicopter gunships and the F16 attack fighters and the heavy tanks and the guided missiles, and destroy yet more of the pathetic remains of infrastructure that the Palestinian state still has left. And then you can point to it as a hopeless case, unfit to govern itself, a terrorist state, a state with which you couldn't possibly reach an accommodation. And then you can carry on with business as usual, quietly stealing their homeland.
