Hopefully soon, the days of $4 liter for gasoline will be obliterated for Gaza Palestinians dependent on the ruthless Hamas. Solar paneled ovens will be the norm, and “eco” products will be plentiful. The rubble from religious tyranny at the beginning of the year will be replaced with new buildings built with environmentally friendly products.
Currently, the Har Gilo settlement is anxious to develop green friendly energy that would reduce the obscene costs for electricity in the region. Friendly Energy CEO Danny Denan stated earlier this week that the West Bank has the ability to produce 1.5 megawatts of energy for both Palestinians and Israelis at a gain of $5.5 million. However, the Hamas has obliterated the technological growth, making a backlog of 30 installations across Israel.
A Palestinian novice and inventor created an electric car which was a smashing success and gained popularity among the locals quite rapidly. However, when the Israeli-Palestinian conflict arose, not only did the inventor’s factory get blown up, but so did the electric car that was parked right beside it. Since then, there’s a standstill on future electric cars being built for locals who are eager for respite from surging fuel prices.
The blockade against building materials continues, making it impossible to rebuild after the bloody conflicts. The Hams defends their acts of violence by saying that a greener, more efficient, and independent Gaza tells the world that things are better and that the people are more resilient than popular belief.
Recycling plants have caught on with huge popularity recently. For many unemployed Gazans, a recycling plant would mean thousands of new jobs and improved services for farmers. What is standing in the way? Simple everyday products like plastics and farm tools to grow green beans, corn, strawberries, melons, etc. are barred from entering the region. These products are imported from elsewhere and shipped in. Hamas controls the borders and sees that these goods will not get to the masses.
As first reported here the violence, oppression, skyrocketing unemployment rates in Gaza, and economic woes have led to worsening drug addictions and the breakdown of family structures. Rehab facilities eager to help the drug addicted individuals are suffering economically too, barely able to keep their doors open-often resorting to shutting down.
The US has ramped up aid, to the tune of $140 million dollars, but all of this aid sits in warehouses controlled by the Hamas, rotting away. There are 37 wells and water treatment facilities in the Gaza Strip that could be created right now if the Hamas would let go of the US aid. Roofing materials, refrigerators, food, PVC pipes, generators and other things don’t go past the Israeli ports. Over a year they have sat, collecting vermin and wasting away. Israeli has released some of the aid, but most of it is still in limbo at the ports’ warehouses.
According to this source, “UN monitoring and log books show that many big-ticket construction materials are still being blocked”. Israelis are fearful that the aid will be used against them, like building bunkers. Meanwhile, whichever side one is on, little children starve and go without basic necessities as the religious tensions escalate everyday.
At this time, 1.4 million Palestinians live under the rogue control of the Hamas. This has led to a viral, out of control smuggling operation through secret tunnels from Egypt to Gaza. Crime has increased because of Hamas control, not lessened. The fighting between the two nations has been largely obscured from the headlines, only trickling through less visible media outlets concerned about the environment and humanitarian efforts.
