Buried in Flour?

The Boston Globe has just run an op-ed under the headline "Ending the Stranglehold on Gaza." The authors are Eyad al-Sarraj, identified as founder of the Gaza Community Mental Health Program, and Sara Roy, identified as senior research scholar at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University...I do want to call attention to this sentence:

Although Gaza daily requires 680,000 tons of flour to feed its population, Israel had cut this to 90 tons per day by November 2007, a reduction of 99 percent.

You don't need to be a math genius to figure out that if Gaza has a population of 1.5 million, as the authors also note, then 680,000 tons of flour a day come out to almost half a ton of flour per Gazan, per day.

1,000 pounds of flour per day per person. That's a serious quantity of pasta, pita, who knows, maybe sourdough? 1,000 pounds for you to eat, every .. single .. day! Yowza.

And the propaganda machine against the evil Jews rolls on. At what point do you think people will figure out they're being taken?
