We in the USA get a steady diet from Islamists and the journalistic Left about how much Muslims hate us. Michelle Malkin has a brilliant piece, with photograph, showing one of the most prominent of Islamist characteristics: Ingratitude. This follows one of their many cognitive hangups: Context dropping.
With great thanks to Michelle Malkin.
THE THANKS WE GET

That's the kind of thanks we get for this:
...U.S. Central Command has led a 63-nation relief effort in Pakistan since Oct. 10, 2005, which includes food, medical care, transportation and other types of post-disaster support.
More than 1,200 U.S. military members and 25 helicopters had been deployed to Pakistan at the peak of the relief mission, Whitman said.
About 650 U.S. service members in Pakistan continue to provide aviation, medical and engineering assistance in earthquake-affected areas, he said. And 12 U.S. CH-47 Chinook cargo helicopters continue to fly disaster relief missions in Pakistan.
To date, U.S. military aviators have flown more than 4,000 missions, delivered more than 11,000 tons of supplies, and transported more than 18,000 people as part of earthquake relief operations in Pakistan, Whitman said.
The U.S. also is donating about $6 million worth of medical, engineering and refueling equipment to the Pakistani government, Whitman said.
That assistance includes more than $3 million worth of medical equipment that's been used in the relief effort, he said, to include a mobile surgical hospital, anesthesia apparatus, ventilators and X-ray equipment."
Now, with that in mind, Bush says he is not stopping "humanitarian aid" to the "Palestinians," and their brand, spanking new HAMAS (read: Iran) government. For that matter, billions keep flowing from the U. S. Treasury to various sink holes of Islamia. What we are getting in Kashmir for being so helpful is the same we have gotten always from Islamia and always will.
Let them stew in their own juices, without any help of any kind from us. Reality will make them shape up or self-destruct.
