Haiti Is Not Gaza
Gazan children look for food.
A great, impassioned op-ed piece in Haaretz about the limits of
compassion in Israel, which has sent scores of rescuers to the victims
of the natural disaster in Haiti, but remains indifferent to the
man-made suffering an hour away in Gaza.
""The disaster in Haiti is a natural one; the one in Gaza is the unproud handiwork of man. Our handiwork... How many Israelis
know that half of all Gazans are dependent on charity, that Operation
Cast Lead created hundreds of amputees, that raw sewage flows from the
streets into the sea?"
