Boston Globe: Each Palestinian Needs Half a Ton of Flour a Day
Maybe a good copy editor could keep the MSM's lies from spinning out of control. A weepy pro-terrorist op-ed in the Boston Globe, amid whimpers about the "stranglehold" on Gaza, declares the following:
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.
The population of Gaza is less than 1.5 million. The math comes out to just under half a ton of flour per Palestinian per day. At least they have a healthy appetite, despite all the Zionist oppression.
At least we're getting something in return for the $2 billion per year we've been handing over to Egypt ever since the Carter days. Our media recycles "facts" invented by theirs.
The lesson is one we have learned before: Never believe the mainstream media, particularly when it is riding to the defense of its terrorist allies.

I dunno, maybe they have found a way to use flour in explosives or something.

Most likely to protect bomb making factories.

I was thinking about that too, Joe.

Believe it or not, flour can be used as an explosive. At one time dust explosions were a major problem in grain silos. Any organic dust can be made to explode under the right conditions.

Perhaps we can ship the difference to Somalia and Darfur.
