The Price of Hatred

When I read this headline Tuesday, I sighed.

When I read the article, I thought twice about giving to those who turn down assistance. Why would they turn down assistance from Israel?

Ostensibly the party line was:

Sri Lanka Ambassador Diffa Digeratna is quoted by Jerusalem Post as saying that the change was due to the "the lack of accommodations in Colombo".

Hmmm, they couldn't find "accommodations" for 150 people charged with helping the helpless? That obviously means that no country can send help to Sri Lanka, right? Obviously there is no room at the Sri Lankan Inn.

For a sample of vile and conspiratorial anti-Semitism cheering Sri Lanka's stupidity, read this.
