Israel - Damned if They Do ...

I was struck by a news report about the American hospital ship, the USS Comfort. It was being sent on a mercy mission to Haiti. It left and would arrive in 5 days. This was a wonderful thing.

But I then heard that an operational M*A*S*H unit was already treating hundreds of wounded Haitians in the field. So who could have gotten there already? How is it possible that another nation acted so swiftly and without fanfare?

Was this the work of Great Britain?
How about France?
Any European Nation?
No the quick response was courtesy of the hated Israelis!

Not one Arab nation lifted a caftan. Unfortunately this is not a surprise. Their leaders were probably calculating how much profit they would reap with the increased oil expenditures in the devastated island nation.

(After writing this I find that there has been some aid sent by a few Muslin countries but not yet from Saudi Arabia. You remember the Saudis, right? They're the wonderful country that brought you the majority of the 911 terrorists. W Bush made love to the leaders and walked hand in hand through our nation's Rose Garden with the Saudi Prince. With all their oil W & Cheney had to suckle at their pump for years.)

I do not know who originally wrote the following but it is right on.

But not to worry - The world will still hate the Israelis. After all what have they done for the rest of the world lately?


Many countries and world leaders have accused Israel of responding disproportionately to aggression from Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

However, it is time that the world press and media speak of another disproportionate response from Israel.

The terrible disastrous earthquake in Haiti has generated responses from many nations. The US has sent supplies and personnel, Britain sent 64 firemen and 8 volunteers, France sent troops for Search and Rescue. Many large and wealthy nations of the world sent money.
The Arab and Muslim world nothing.

Israel, a nation of 7.5 million people has sent a team of 220 people that include Medical personnel and will establish the largest field hospital in Haiti, treating up to 5000 people a day, an experienced Search and Rescue team and medical supplies.

As in previous earthquake disasters, such as in Gujarat India in 2001 and in Turkey, in the bombings in Kenya, Israel has been one of the most generous givers of aid and assistance.

Turkey seems to have forgotten this help as its extreme Muslim Government is cozying up to Iran.

Judge Goldstone, where are you now? Eating your heart out and hanging your head down in shame I hope.

The favorite occupation in the UN is Israel bashing. More resolutions have been passed condemning Israel than all the so called democratic nations such as Sudan, China, Russia and others for their crimes against their minorities.

I think it is time that the world should know about Israel's disproportionate response.
