Have They No Shame?

What are those murderous, imperialistic, even genocidal, Israelis up to now?, apparently an Israeli news source, today reports

CNN reported that Israel is the only state so far to have sent a field hospital equipped with all that is required for surgical operations. Doctors from various missions send patients requiring surgery to Israel's makeshift hospital, particularly those whose condition is critical, the news network said.

According to the report, other field hospitals contain no more than stretcher beds and medical teams who administer first aid, and they are not prepared for complex surgery....

More than 100 injured patients require surgery, but are unable to get it anywhere except at the Israeli field hospital in Port-au-Prince. The doctors are unable to meet the demand, and meanwhile the patients lie in tents, administered with painkillers, and cry for help. "They'll die within 24 hours if they don't get operated on," a reporter said.

The woman who appears in the video (below) to be the reporter marvels "the Israelis came from the other side of the world.... This is like another world compared to the other hospital." The Ohter woman maintains "no one except the Israeli hospital has taken any of our patients."

One of the men in the piece laments "it makes you almost embarrassed to be an American"- but it need not. It was Israel- the generous, swift, and effective action should not have surprised anyone.

Or is this just another dastardly Israeli scheme to curry international favor in order to continue their brutal oppression of the Palestinians?
