Media made a Whopper of a lie... of course the blockade was just manufactured vitriol... but it is amusing to see how off their accusations were. this data is coming from the Economist... not exactly a Pro Zionist rag
The graph above is from The Economist in 2004. Gaza and the Westabank rank #8 and #3 for obesity. Now a lot can happen over six years so in terms of nutrition the situation in Gaza might very well be different today. Yet the table above gives us an indication that living conditions were less dire, in 2004 at least, than some people would have us believe.
One thing is for certain, if obesity levels in Gaza turn out to have decreased since 2004, the Norwegian media will blame it on Israel. Unless obesity levels have increased, that is.
In which case the Norwegian media will blame it on Israel.
