i Phones selling well in Concentration camp Gaza

Lets hope the Estelle, the Swedish Boat to Gaza is bringing in i Phones

From Reuters, of all places.

Apple's new iPhone 5 is selling well in the Gaza Strip despite inflated prices, reaching the Palestinian enclave via smuggling tunnels even before high-tech hub Israel next door.
The cutting edge smart phone is being snapped up for almost double what it costs in the United States, its price jacked up by middlemen on its circuitous delivery route from Dubai via tunnels linking the blockaded territory with Egypt.
The iPhone 5 will not be available until December from mobile operators in tech-mad Israel, which along with Egypt maintains a partial blockade of Gaza to prevent the entry of anything that could be used for military purposes.
But the phones have been available for a couple of weeks in Gaza and they were on display on Monday in three independent mobile stores in a one-block radius in downtown Gaza City.
Prices ranged from 4,500 Israeli shekels ($1,170) for the 16 gigabyte model to 5,700 ($1,480) for 64 gb.
"I ordered 30 and I've sold 20 so far," said one dealer. "We can order as many as we want. But most people are waiting for the price to go down. They're pretty expensive."

iPhones in poor suffering Gaza.   My soul cries out in anguish over the inhumanity of it all.

arrianna huffington is a filthy liar and a hypocrite. she's already rich and made millions upon millions of dollars when she sold the Post to aol. she didn't give so much as a nickle to all the underlings that worked on the Post for years for basically free of charge. they tried a class action law suite against her but it didn't work out. she's filth that masquerades as some sort of working class hero but in reality she just a corporation onto herself.
