One of the biggest success stories in the relief effort in Haiti is the achievement of Israel, the tiny nation of seven million that beat out all other nations in erecting a complete field hospital in Haiti. The country dispatched 220 military doctors, nurses and support staff and erected a fully functioning field hospital within 24 hours of leaving Israel (It's a 16 hour flight to Haiti.) The hospital brought along all the modern diagnostic equipment it needed and commenced treating injured Haitians almost immediately. The sophistication of the operation is unmatched, the unit has already conducted surgical procedures via video conferencing with surgeons at a an Israeli hospital outside Tel Aviv.
The paediatric unit delivered it's first baby which a thankful mother named Israel. LINK
News organizations all overt the world took notice and reported on the Israel effort, which is proving embarrassing to other larger nations, and news organizations that are used to bashing Israel. Some of the videos below have been blocked in Arab countries out of sheer humiliation.

How did the CBC (and Britain's BBC) cover this amazing achievement? Silence.....
The anti-Israel bias precludes them from reporting positively on Israel and particularly on the Israeli military.
Read a hilarious send-up written in Britain's Telegrapgh.co.uk entitled Israel builds a field hospital in Haiti. Anti-Zionists not fooled!
Worse the CBC ran this outrageous propaganda piece showing Gaza children preparing aid for Haiti "in solidarity."
Palestinians have become experts in staging contrived photo ops that a sympathetic left-wing press publishes without much journalistic scrutiny.
Here the children are being filmed donating some junkie toys and little money, all meant to tug a heart strings. A sign written in Arabic and English reminding everyone of the 'siege.' is an obvious attempt to show themselves as heroic victims alongside the Haitians.
If the Gazans were truly trying to send a message of solidarity to Haitians, perhaps they should have included French in the message, instead of the English. Even an idiot CBC editor can see through the ridiculous charade and that the caption that was obviously meant for the press.
Did any reporter ask officials exactly how these toys are to be delivered and by whom? Not to put too fine a point on it but Gazans are not exactly in a position to ship or receive goods to and from anywhere.....
Most likely the junk was re-distributed right after the photo op took place and the money returned to sender.
Nice story CBC!
