Sewage Floods Gaza City
Arutz Sheva ^ | 16/10/11 | Gil Ronen

Posted on 10/16/2011 3:02:16 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

Gaza City municipal teams worked for 24 hours to stem the flow of a sewage flooding homes in the city's eastern sector, Palestinian Authority (PA) based Ma'an News reported.

Faulty sewage lines burst and poured into homes on Friday. Perhaps symbolically, the deluge took place as the city prepared to welcome a flood of murderous terrorists being released by Israel.

Ma'an quoted a (presumably official) press release that laid the blame at Israel's door, but did not say who had issued it. "Workers face difficulties upgrading the sewage network because materials and machines necessary for the work are blocked by Israel's siege on the Gaza Strip," the press release added, requesting assistance from "human rights organizations" to help end the closure.

The PA news agency explained that Israel tightened restrictions on movement of people and goods in and out of Gaza in 2007, "when Hamas took control of the enclave after winning democratic elections a year earlier." It failed, predictably, to remind its readers that Hamas's charter calls for the elimination of Israel and that it regularly attempts to murder Israeli civilians. Construction materials can only enter Gaza via Israeli-controlled crossings for approved projects funded by international organizations and UN agencies, the report said. Restrictions on cement deliveries were relaxed last year in the aftermath of the Gaza flotilla confrontation.

In early 2007, between six and nine people were reported dead in Gaza in sewage flooding. Israel offered assistance in the rescue efforts. A few weeks earlier, Israel charged that terrorists were digging up sewage pipes and turning them into rockets to fire into Israel.

So Israel must allow more pipes in, so that they can use them to make rockets without digging up their sewage pipes. The monsters. How dare they not do so?

And perhaps divinely, not symbolically.

The Occupy Wall Street folks should go there and protest, even though they would probably find the sewage-filled environment congenial.

They need some extra resources. Those newly released terrorists can’t be idle, you know.

Once a garden, now a sewer. Even the Old Testament couldn’t come up with this appropriate metaphor.

I believe in the past they had a large sewage retention basin fail due to someone stealing sand from the berm.

Ghaza has a shortage of sand? It’s all Israel’s fault.

Sewage tile doesn’t meet the specs required for rockets, but I wouldn’t have put it past a Pallie to have flushed some dynamite down the toilet.
