“Poverty is rising. Unemployment is rising to epic levels. Food insecurity is becoming more acute. The Palestinian economy is becoming more stifled and less viable under the occupation,” Michael Lynk, the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967, said delivering his report to the UN General Assembly in New York.

Lynk said that Gaza suffers from a staggering 42 percent unemployment rate. Unemployment is as high as 58 percent among the youth population. Overall the entire Occupied Palestinian Territory has a 27 percent unemployment rate compared to only to 12 percent in 1999.

“The deepening of the occupation, the constriction of basic human rights and the utter absence of a political horizon leading to self-determination for the Palestinians have reinforced an atmosphere of despair and hopelessness,” Lynk said.

This comes a few days after Israel began to impose a two hours per week window for water supply:

Israel is still implementing an illegal blockade of Gaza.

Israel murdered 520 children in Gaza in 2014.

And as reported by Seymour Hersh in March 2007 in The Redirection, Israel agreed to Saudi Arabia unleashing international cutthroat Jihadis on Syria (after Israel also did 9/11 to kick off a series of Zionist wars).

But to Trump, all this is "inspiring"!!
