    Life in Gaza eases June 12, 2011 by gazaflotilla101 Comments Off If you want to get a sense of how much has changed during the past year in the lives of ordinary people living the Gaza Strip, look no further than chicken. Shoppers have their choice of bird. At the bottom of the heap are frozen Egyptian chickens, which are smuggled through tunnels under the border and sell for about a dollar a kilogram (2.2 pounds). Even at that price, they aren’t popular due to concerns about disease. In middle range are frozen Israeli birds, ranging in price from one to two dollars per kilo. And at the top, stands fresh chicken grown and slaughtered in Gaza at a cost of two to three dollars. … The blockade is still technically in force, but Israel now permits almost all goods into Gaza except items it fears could be used to stage attacks. On the Egyptian border, controls over people going into and out of Gaza have been eased as well, most recently at the end of May. Gaza’s economy expanded 15.2% last year as freer access enabled economic activity to revive, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
