Gaza's first Olympic-standard swimming pool was inaugurated at the As-Sadaka club during a ceremony on Tuesday held by the Islamic Society.Club members? An area that we are led to believe is knee-deep in poverty has a club?

And naturally, they will expect fine accommodations
No problem--there's the Aldeira Hotel
