    My friends who are still serving in the IDF (I am too old now) who were in Gaza not long ago could not believe the wealth they saw in Gaza. The Hamas villas, the fancy cars, the luxury goods and the abundance of materials. Everything they heard on the news about Gaza had been a lie. Yes, is there poverty in Gaza. Yes, no doubt there is, but it's due because of the theft of goods by Hamas and Hamas corruption.

    from the article: So, did you see the malls in Gaza?
