In stark contrast to regular Western media reports of widespread deprivation and destitution in Gaza, Ashraf Abu Al-Houl reported that "a sense of absolute prosperity prevails, as manifested by the grand resorts along and near Gaza's coast."

Al-Houl also wrote that "the sight of the merchandise and luxuries filling Gaza shops amazed me.
