A Taste of “Concentration Camp” Gaza: The Uptown Restaurant & Cafe

Inspired by the Gaza mall photos, I have featured on this blog various facilities from Gaza, with the aim of providing readers with a glimpse into the real Gaza, which is anything but a concentration camp as some claim.

My point is not that there is no hardship in Gaza, but rather that the situation is a far cry from what is being presented by the palestinians, their supporters and the mainstream media.


Introducing the Uptown Restaurant and Cafe, located at the top of a building in Khan Yunis, Gaza.

Besides the very non-concentration camp, non-open-air-prison looking surroundings, the food also looks very non-concentration-campy and non-open-air-prisony.

And the restaurant encourages patrons to take out their phones and tag their friends in photos there.

What a shame Gazans do not have phones…oh wait..

As Gazans swallow up this delicious-looking food, too many in the world are still swallowing up the false narrative.
