Economy of Gaza

Recommended Posts

It is sad indeed to see images of building after building in Gaza being destroyed - often because Hamas has chosen to hide behind the skirts of women and toys of children.  It leads me to wonder where the cold hard cash to build a city of 2mm people came from?   Best I can find is small industry never employed more than 40k people at any time over last century - agriculture about the same size.  Can't see 80k low income jobs support 2mm people.   From what I can see Palestine overall but Gaza in particular takes in money from UN agencies, some MENA countries (Qatar mostly) and Iran and produces nothing more than more Gazans and a home for Hamas.  The reported 500 truckloads a day of stuff coming in is/was a LOT of money going out, but little evidence of more than a trickle of exports to bring the balance in.
