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.
