The size of the Israeli medical mission to Japan dwarfs the medical missions from China and Korea, Japan's next-door-neighbors. I'm not sure, but I think the only other medical mission larger than Israel's is from the US. I don't expect the UN to pass a resolution praising Israel for this mission.

Update: While the Israeli medical mission of about 50 people is already up and running in Japan, Korea has sent at total of about 5 people and 2 dogs as their aid mission to Japan. China wanted to sent a mission from their armed forces, but Japan declined since it doesn't want Chinese military snooping. Let us hope that Japan finally sees the light and recognizes they have more affinity with Israel than with some of their neighbors. The combined brainpower of Israel and Japan can do great things together.
