What a week for black Conservatives. First Obama has the worst week in his “residency,” and now redemption in chicken.
In what may be one of the strangest stories I have read in a while, it appears that smuggling KFC is BIG in the Middle East. Black people have been saying for years that chicken is DELICIOUS. Who knows; chicken could possibly have ended fighting in the Gaza Strip.
Christian Science Monitor reports:
Ironically, one of the reasons smugglers agreed to start dealing in KFC is because Israel’s easing of restrictions on trade since the November cease-fire with Hamas has dealt a serious blow to the tunnel business.
The KFC delivery service in Gaza started with a hankering rather than a business plan.
Mohammed al-Madani, financial manager of al-Yamama company, says the employees of the company decided to order some meals for themselves from the KFC restaurant in the neighboring Egyptian city of al-Arish.
Someone from the company contacted a friend in al-Arish, asking him to make the order and then bring it through the tunnels; the whole process just took three hours.
“Then we asked ourselves, ‘Why don’t we provide this service for Gazans?'” says Mr. al-Madani.
