1. Cut the crap and take care of those you make
Al   (01.17.10)
refugees in your own country namely the 10K Jews from Gaza. You may feel good about yourselves but charity begins at home. You may be good to the cruel and that swells your heart but you end up being cruel to the kind. Throwing 10K Jews out of their homes will end up pulling you down. You will never oulive that outrage. So go ahead look to save the world and take the phto ops but the truth is that you will never be able to repent for that transgression of throwing Jews out of their homes in 2005. Start being a mench in your own home before you pretend you want to save the world.
2. Big what!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Salma ,   Palestine   (01.17.10)

3. PM: We're a small country with a big heart
josh ,   Canada   (01.17.10)
"We may be a small country, but we are a country with a big heart. This is the expression of Jewish ethics and heritage – to help others." yeah, right, What a joke! Israel needs to sound human sometimes.
4. To #1: Stop whining about Gush Katif!
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (01.17.10)
How many more dead soldiers in Gaza would appease your blood lust? Oh, it was 8k not 10k! On a real note, only FOXNews has reported on the Israeli assistance in Haiti. The others are all patting themsleves of the back but Israel has the only operating hospital there!
5. #2 Salma, sorry, I missed the news...
Talula ,   Israel   (01.17.10)
I didn't hear how many teams are on their way from Palestine or ANY ARAB COUNTRY - Oh!! that's right - NONE!!! Not one Arab country. I think you should shut your stupid mouth now.
6. #1 Why aren't you living in a settlement Al?
Talula ,   Israel   (01.17.10)
You are so full of hot meaningless air - why don't you just put a sock in it - and keep quiet. If you can't do that, pack up and go and show a bit of camaraderie instead of banging away on a keyboard 20,000 miles away. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSER!!!
7. Big Heart
sSameer S Reehani ,   Houston,Texas USA   (01.17.10)
You're right,jewish ppeople have big heart ,but not you Mr.Prime Minister.
8. To # 5 Good idea for you!!!
Salma ,   Palestine   (01.17.10)
Why did not you go to help people in Haiti,because you have a very warm tongue!!wow
9. Aid at what price?
Resistor   (01.17.10)
10. David, Talula - Many People have No Compassion for Jews
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (01.17.10)
The cruel ethnic cleansing of thousands of Gaza Jews violated Article 80 of the United Nations Charter, broke Israel's Basic Human Rights Law and Clause 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Serving US/EU/Totalitarian Colonizing Islam, Israeli leaders Destroyed Jewish Human Rights-patriotic Jews, including children, have been evicted, brutally beaten and jailed. The 1976 International Convention for Civil and Political Rights, prohibits all forms of discrimination against people on the basis of religion and nationality Many evicted Jews had to live in tents for a long time. Jew-haters were delighted and Gaza Muslims celebrated Israel's surrender by desecrating and destroying sacred synagogues. The "peace" process achieved its goal - the jihad against Israel's hated Jewish infidels, intensified. For the Sole unjust reason Jews are not Muslim, US/EU Demand Jew Cleansing from the ancestral Biblical homeland of Judea-Samaria and holy Jerusalem. No new settlements. Building/settlement freeze. No natural growth - Will U.S. demand Jews have abortions? WHERE ARE THE HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYERS?
11. PM:small country, big heart????
Marco ,   Spain   (01.17.10)
With all due respect Mr. Prime Minister, where was your big heart when you massacred the children of Kana? And why did the international community voted Israel with its "big heart" as a criminal state? Why the censorship Ynet? Is there anything that I mentioned above that is not true? This post was sent twice before and twice it was censored.
12. David, and the typical Israeli brag
Roger ,   USA   (01.17.10)
The US and Russia had mobile hospitals up and running before the Israelis arrived, and the US sent surgeons, medical staff and medical supplies to a hospital in Port-au-Prince that was still functioning.
13. big
maha   (01.17.10)

14. Hey Marco - stop talking about things you know nothing about
Leo   (01.17.10)
You forget the whole context of the Kana event. You forget that arround Kana village there were dozens of rockets launched toward civilian Israeli towns. The shells that were fired at Kana were not intended to hit Kana. It was a mistake of firing coordinates.
15. did you hear?
Ilana   (01.17.10)
How all the arab countires sent medical teams and set up rescue units and hospitals???? I also didn't
16. Roger #12
Tahl ,   Ashdod, Israel   (01.17.10)
Cool it, this isn't a pissing contest. I don't know whether indeed Israel has the only fully-operational hospital or not, but I know that this Israeli hospital has some of the best doctors, who perform very important relief work. And it's good for FOX to report this, unlike other networks. And of course, this doesn't take anything from the huge help the US is providing. Kudos to the US, kudos to Russia, kudos to Israel, and kudos to any other country who's helping out.
17. Those critizing Israels respnce to Haiti
Galut ,   Selah   (01.17.10)
would do better by extending a hand to have needs in Haiti...for tomorrow it may be you in a similar situation as the Haitins....
18. # 8
Birdi ,   Israel   (01.17.10)
Only medical teams,Israeli DOCTORS & NURSES went to Haiti to help.Talula is not a doctor & not a nurse. Get it ?
19. Salma, by any chance ...
EST ,   Miami USA   (01.18.10)
are yours the children that were almost blown to bits when your father and brothers used them as human shields? You come across like a very compassionate individual :-) On a serious note, maybe some of your friends should really emulate the State of Israel in kindness to their fellow human beings; to wit all sudanese who are desperately trying to avoid being slaughtered by their fellow Muslims???? This is not a new tradition for big hearted Israel. In the early 70's Israel was one of the very few - if not the only country to take in the so called "boat people"from South Vietnam...desperatly trying to flee another totalitarian regime (like most Arab ones) where they would have been tortured and slaughtered ... So yes, Israel has a BIG HEART in spite of all the sadness and evilness with which Arabs try to bring it down.
20. Talula - Correction
Dave ,   Yafo, Israel   (01.19.10) Don't get me wrong, could Arab countries do more to help Haiti? Absolutely, but other countries in the world could as well. Rather than demonize Arab countries as a monolithic entity, impossible of empathy; try reading the news more often and start treating everyone - Haitians, Jews, Arabs, and everyone in between - with a more balanced form of criticism.
