Haiti and Gaza, a comparison

Israeli peace group Gush Shalom publishes the following ad in Haaretz today:

In far-away Haiti

A terrible disaster

Has occured.

Within a few hours

An Israeli aid mission

Was organized.

In near-by Gaza

Hundreds of houses

Lie in ruins.

The inhabitants do not ask

For an aid mission.

Only that the

Israeli government

Stops preventing

Building materials

From coming in.
