The article discusses the role played by Israel in the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti and in the Gaza Strip bombardment from late December 2008 to early January 2009. It says that while Israel rushed to save the lives of many Haitians from the natural disaster, it ironically caused disaster in the Gaza Strip by a three-week bombardment. It says that the bombings killed 1500 of 1.5 million population of Gaza and Israel today prevents aid, aid workers, and supplies from entering Gaza.
