The Face of Gaza for Years to Come?

Time to begin assessing the physical damage to Gaza, while the death count rises as recovery crews are at last able to reach victims. This Al Jazeera video reports it's estimated that rebuilding Gaza will cost one billion dollars and take five years to complete. That, of course, is assuming that Gazans will have access to building materials and machinery, as well as the fuel, food, medical supplies and other materials needed by any society. And where were people live, work and study in the meantime? Where will they heal? Pray? Celebrate? Where will civic activities take place?
