Vatican vs Israel

So the GAAC, aka the WOATE, aka the Vatican, appears to be a firmly entrenched bastion of Old Europe. I guess I should have realized that, seeing as how it used to be Europe, but every once in a while they surprise me, like when they came out in defence of Sadam. Now, the Catholic World News reports that Israel has denied help to those suffering from the SE Asia tsunami.
The Vatican newspaper has denounced a decision by the Israeli army to deny
emergency help to disaster victims in Sri Lanka.
Calling for "a radical and dramatic change of perspective" among people "too often preoccupied with making war," L'Osservatore Romano singled out Israeli military leaders for declining a request for emergency medical help. The Vatican paper observed that in what "should be a time for unconditional solidarity," some world leaders seem incapable of escaping a "small-minded approach that restricts their horizons."
What really happened?
An Israeli plane carrying 80 tons of supplies, and 150 medical workers, was turned away by the Sri Lankins!
Only in Lefty-land, can "small-minded" Sri Lankin beurocrats deny help to their people, and the blame falls on Israel.
