Mona Charen quotes Canada’s National Post in a passage I admit I’d missed. Says the Post, regarding the rejection from Muslim governments in he effected areas rejecting the help of the Israeli government:

“”We expect such false attacks on Israel from the paranoid fever swamps of the Arab world, which, for all we know, are now reporting that 4,000 Jewish tourists failed to show up for their hotel reservations in Phuket over the weekend. ”

They’ve got a point; I’ve seen several brainless Canadians recently in Yahoo groups, particularly, coughing up the old lie about how “so few jews were inside the WTC when it was attacked. I mean, if they could arrange THAT, why not the Tsunami, as well?
