    Israel's Response to Katrina

    I am shocked, sorrowed and apalled from Israel's lack of responce to the New Orleans natural crisis.

    Even if the Americans are not lacking in any matrial or technological or men power, it is a duty of a friend, like Israel is, to DEMONSTRATE solidarity of the kind visible to every Jane or Joe in America, as to the rest of the world.

    The Jewish flag of Israel should have been waving over field hospitals, inflatable boats, tents trucks, blankets and caravans. Food, mostly fruits and vegetables, should have been brought in crates.

    Rescuers, in orange helmets and IDF green uniforms should have been on the scene, just like following the American ambassis in Kenya and Tanzania in Africa. Israelis rescue experts were among the first to arrive, and among the last to leave the disaster areas.

    Israelis sent aid and expertize to four corners of the world (just an expression), from the earthquaqes in Mexico, earth quaqe in Turkey, the Tsunamy, fires in Greece, (OUR helicopters helped to put down the fire, not Germans, not Italian - ISRAELI). We've already sent aid everywhere.

    Why not now? why not to New Orleans and it's surroundings?

    We pray and wish well for the victims of the Hurrican, in New Orleans and southern USA.

    Maybe you should switch news source

    Israel sending emergency supplies, volunteers to U.S.

    The Bush administration has accepted Israel's offers of assistance to the Hurricane Katrina relief effort, with a first shipment of supplies expected to be sent on Tuesday.

    Israel will send a search and rescue team, military rations and other
    emergency supplies to the United States to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, officials said Monday.

    [...]

    "Israel was one of the first nations to offer relief aid, if not the first," said Israeli Ambassador to Washington Danny Ayalon, citing letters from Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to President George Bush and the secretaries of state, defense, and homeland security.

    "Even if it will be modest aid, even if it will be symbolic aid, it is still very important.

    That's good to know. I too was surprised at the lack of any news of Israel helping the Katrina victims, which among other things would've been out of character, since Israel helped other countries that experienced natural disasters.

    Israel offers action not talk, while the saying we are in solidarity probably provides comfort, sending the aid the way we are doing helps people directly.

    And, since America footed the bill for the man-made disaster to expell the Gaza Jews and raze their homes and businesses.

    SteveK you know that disengagement would have happened no matter what, most Israelis supported it, and that the Supreme Court ruled Gaza Strip was not part of Israel.

    Gaza city itself changed hands between the jewish state and the Philistines so many times that it is hard to tell just how much power the ancient Kings of Jerusalem really had there.

    Gaza was the city that Goliath set out from you know.

    Cato,

    That is until Goliath met his end with the young David, the future King of Israel.

    And, today's Israeli Government is on a rampage with the mentality of that uncircumcized Philistine Goliath to rape, pillage, and plunder the Jewish character of Israel.

    Tragically, today, Israel has no Torah leadership on the level of David, who could knock some sense of faith and fear of God into the head of this Goliath.
