This astounding Haiti-Gaza comparison does not get much media or political or NGO notice.
This story is even much worse than it seems – when you look at both the populations and deaths involved.
CIA estimate is [ 2009 ] 1,551,859 people in Gaza, but 5,035,536 in Haiti.
This means that PER HEAD, Gaza gets $579.95 but Haiti only $77.47.
Gaza was thus pledged 7.5 TIMES as much per head after the IDF operation as Haiti after the devastating earthquake.
If you also look at the death toll, Haiti lost an estimated 230,000 on Jan 12, 2010, which equals US aid of $3,043.48 for every fatality.
The highest allegation of the Gaza death toll is 1,417 which would equal US aid of $ 635,144.7 per fatality.
For US aid, every Gaza death is worth 209 TIMES as much as one in Haiti.
Gaza lost at most under 0.0913 % of its population, but Haiti lost 4.568 %, or 50 times more.
Gaza lost 1 in every 1,095, but Haiti lost 1 in every 22 people.
But then Haiti is neither Arab nor Muslim.
And no oil-rich tyrants or suicide-bombers need to be appeased.
