When Israel sends a disaster rescue team overseas - it publicizes its exploits and expects to reap a publicity bonanza. Yet when the US government, and its private citizens, expend enormous capital and energy on Israel, since its establishment, Ha'aretz expects no quid pro quo.

So stop kicking the gift horse in the mouth.
