...It's worth noting that the size of the initial Israel effort was 1/3 the size of the U.S. effort - a country with 300 times the resources. One wonders if Burn a Jew Day will continue in Haiti after the recovery.
IDF Search & Rescue in Haiti...
Meanwhile Israel, where over 20 percent of the population is below the poverty line and 1 in 3 children goes hungry... is sending its own aid mission to Haiti.The IDF's aid mission to Haiti left Israel overnight Thursday with equipment for setting up an emergency field hospital. Around 220 soldiers and officers are in the delegation, including 120 medical staff that will operate the hospital in the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince.
I can understand sending teams for rescue operations, since Israel has some of the best personnel and dogs when it comes to rescue work from underneath rubble, thanks to a need created by Islamic terrorism. Aish makes a religious case for sending aid. On the flip side of that there's the Haitian ritual "bwile jwif", which means "Burn the Jew".
Debbie Schlussel also points out the consequences of Haitian illegal immigration
But liberal American lawmakers want to halt Haitian deportation indefinitely. That’s a bad move and a slippery slope. As we all know, provisions like this which don’t have sunsets, simply never end. And we don’t need 30,000 people who knew better, but broke the law, stealing American jobs permanently. I agree with the Homeland Security position which is less committed to anything long-term. Frankly, it’s unfortunate that we grant this status to people from Somalia–which has led to a huge immigration wave of extremist Muslims Somalians and, as I’ve noted, an ever-expanding crime wave against Americans committed by Somalian Muslims across our nation.
