7 reasons why Haiti and not Gaza

In an earlier post, I alluded to the accusations by the moonbat Left that denigrate Israel's assistance in Haiti because we are not doing the same thing in Gaza. Shmuel Rosner links to some of our accusers.
Here's Derfner saying: "the Haiti side of Israel that makes the Gaza side so inexpressibly tragic. And more and more, the Haiti part of the national character has been dwarfed by the Gaza part". Here's the Electronic Intifada criticizing the media for its positive spin of this humanitarian effort: "A few media outlets have pointed out the discrepancies in Zionist self-congratulation". And the estimable NYT showing very little understanding of Israel's true feelings by claiming that "Israelis have been watching with a range of emotions, as if the Haitian relief effort were a Rorschach test through which the nation examines itself. The left has complained that there is no reason to travel thousands of miles to help those in need - Gaza is an hour away".
I already noted in that earlier post that Gaza could have had a field hospital during and after Operation Cast Lead, but Hamas didn't want it. In fact, I could add that 'Palestinians' from Gaza are brought to Israel all the time for treatment - one of them even tried to commit suicide at a crossing on the way several years ago. But Rosner takes a different tack and unabashedly lists seven reasons why Israel is helping Haiti and not Gaza.

Read the whole thing.
