Safe Mode: On
For Israelis, Mixed Feelings on Aid Effort

JERUSALEM — The editorial cartoon in Thursday’s mass-circulation Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot showed American soldiers digging among the ruins of Haiti. From within the rubble, a voice calls out, “Would you mind checking to see if the Israelis are available?”

  • Where the F-CK was Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Egypt and the United Nations. These countries and institutions are too busy hating Israel to have an ounce of compassion towards the REAL SUFFERING GOING ON IN AFRICA AND HAITI.

  • I agree with Akiva Eldar and his kind- Israel should start helping the simple residents of gaza by removing the bloackadge and assist them in other fields, just like Israel helps other 3rd world countries all over the world.

    Israel should do it, even that gaza is ruled by Hamas. by doing so hamas will gradually loose the support of the gazans in fighting against Israel.

    that is exactly what heppened in the pales. territories during the 90's.

    today the best example for it is Genin which More..
