PRO-TERROR LEFTISTS ASSERT THERE ARE NO POOLS IN GAZA: Five minutes on Google Maps proves them liars

Media Watchdog CAMERA reports that the pro-terror, lying leftists are at it again:

Nearly seven years to the day after Haaretz's Gideon Levy falsely reported that West Bank Palestinians have just one single place where they can learn to swim..., this weekend he extends the fallacy to the Gaza Strip. "There are no swimming pools in the Gaza Strip," wrote the veteran journalist Friday... There are dozens of swimming pools in the West Bank and numerous pools in the Gaza Strip.

...As reported by Maan News Agency, the Olympic-sized al-Sadaka pool, the Gaza Strip's first Olympic-sized pool, opened in 2010... In addition, the al-Nour Resort, a Hamas-affiliated facility located near the former site of the Netzarim settlement, has two swimming pools, according to Al-Monitor...

...In a phone call with CAMERA's Israel office, Gideon Levy acknowledged the existence of pools in Gaza and insisted that in his piece he was referring to private pools.

In any event, Levy is a very poor propagandist. I spent all of seven minutes on Google Maps, in satellite view over the Gaza strip, and I identified what appear to be plenty of pools, including those that seem to be attached to private residences. To wit (you can click on each picture to see the actual satellite view):


In short, the lesson remains the same: never believe a leftist.

And maybe if the Palestinians spent more time building pools and less time constructing terror tunnels...

What is it they say? If you tell a lie often enough...
These guys who lie and recycle pictures of dead babies are banking on the fact that for every 100 people they reach with their lies, less than 100 will hear any retraction or a correction. It's a numbers game. The number of people who believe the lies is cumulative.

When did private swimming pools become a human right?

This is annoying. I am no fan of leftists, and I usually don't like what they have to say, but let's just say "don't believe Gideon Levy" and not extended it to all leftists. I say this because there are a few right wing writers who really stink, and the other side accuses all right wingers of being liars because of those few. But by all means, keep hammering on those individual leftist writers.
