Cruise Line

(Exposing the fraud of the Gaza flotilla)

Gaza Hotel Directory
   Gaza Flotilla Cruise Line participants are sailing around the world, which is of course very expensive, thus they want only the best accommodations when staying in Gaza. While there are many hotels to choose from, we selected a few of the best hotels to recommend. Unfortunately for the Flotilla Cruise Line participants, these hotels do not have the rubble and tent-city image they want to project to the rest of the world, which is why you don't see these hotels on television. So, we thought we'd show the real face of the dire "humanitarian need" the United Nations states does not exist, agreeing with this website.

   So, where is the humanitarian crisis? The hotels offer wireless Internet, so that's not a crisis. The only thing we can think of, considering some of the ships have docked in France, is a dire need for soap, perfume and of course, fondue sets, many of which can be found using this link on eBay.
  Aldeira Hotel    
  Al-Deira HotelThe Aldeira Hotel is the height of Gazan luxury. Featuring massive rooms with a view of the sea, a pleasant (though by Gaza's standards not superb) restaurant (with Shisha pipes, although not allowed in the fine Oriental bedrooms) this is as good it gets. The minibar is non-alcoholic since alcohol is forbidden in Gaza under Hamas rule.

Aldeira will supply a hairdryer, towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner, and a little plate of cookies. Don't be alarmed that the water tastes salty. The Deira has a back-up generator in the event of power outages, a business center and WiFi. Breakfast is complimentary.


Editors Notes: Their website is amazing. Visit www.aldeira.ps for an online tour. It is funny that most international journalists and NGOs stay at the Deira and then report Gaza as reduced to a pile of rubble by Israel.

"A great small hotel with extremely helpful staff, Marna House feels a bit like a home from home, with an English library available for the use of guests. Rooms are comfortable and airy, with satellite TV and balconies, and rates include tax and breakfast."

  Arcmed Al Mashtal Hotel    
You have to love the marketing campaign. Despite all of the above, this hotel opened in June, 2011 with healines such as "First five-star hotel opens in Gaza, without guests" in newspapers such as Ha'aretz. which states: "(The) hotel gleams with marble floors, five luxury restaurants and a breezy cafe overlooking the territory's white sandy beaches and sparkling blue Mediterranean Sea."

You will love the video on their website!
