A different kind of anti-Israeli homicide?

As inevitable as the attempt to blame the natural disaster in Asia on human greed and stupidity (see below) is the rejection by a third world government of help from an Israeli aid mission. Israel was prepared to send a 150-person team to Sri Lanka. The delegation was “planning to assemble a medical facility comprised of specialist doctors, and to set up emergency, internal medicine and pediatric departments, as well as laboratory and X-ray facilities in the southern part of Sri Lanka.” However, Sri Lanka refused to accept the mission. Israel nonetheless is dispatching supplies at Sri Lanka’s request, including 10,000 blankets contributed by the Israeli army, along with tents, nylon sheeting and water containers.

UPDATE: A small team of Israelis will accompany a convoy carrying emergency supplies to Sir Lanka, according to the BBC.
