    .. describe a bit of it to you. It is a coveted section of real estate along the gorgeous, highly desirable Mediterannean coast, as even the Philistines concurred about 3000 years ago and went about establishing their cities. In the hands of sensible, honest Palestinian brokers a mecca could easily have been built there with the hundred's of millions donated from the generosity of the West, and not even one dollar would have been left over for a Kalashnikov bullet. Instead what Arafat alone sent his wife in France as a monthly stipend was obscene. Paris is expensive but not nearly as much as Sufa made it out to be. Does the UN report mention how the manly Hamas fighters dug extensive tunnel networks for their planned war against Israel and then took cover there themselves during the conflict, instead of being gentlemen and offering up those covered positions to their women and children and facing up to the IDF whom they provoked?
