Mr. Eldar mimics a Ynet piece by Sever Plocker,souring the humanitarian-based rescue effort because Gazans are still suffering. Any noble act by Israel as a government or Israelis as individuals must be tarnished as ignoring the Palestinians. Most of the rational people on this board have noted, Haiti's victims suffered from a horrible but naturally occuring disaster, not because they are in a state of perpetual war with a neighbor. They never fired rockets at Israel, never incited in their media to attack Israeli soldiers and civilians, never refused to recognize Israel. They are all deserving of help and rescue and rebuilding efforts. Gaza under Hamas does not recognize Israel, repeatedly calls for the dismantling of the Jewish state, teaches its children to hate all Jews and Israelis (except perhaps the anti-Zionist bootlickers) and somehow still expects this eternal foe to supply it with everything. Where are the 22 Arab states who could supply everything through Egypt?
