Myanmar receiving Aid from the U.S. and IsraeL

Some background on the Jewish plight in Myanmar:

Country’s 20 remaining Jews fear for their small community as tensions between military junta, Buddhist monks rise. ‘Nobody knows what might happen tomorrow,’ they say

Myanmar’s Jews live in fear
The tensions between the military junta and Buddhist monks have made the Jewish community take extra precautions and they have recently hired a private security company, to guard Yangon’s only synagogue.

You may think because of this, Israel and Jews would hesitate to lend a hand.
Think again.

Israel is joining the list of countries set to offer aid to Myanmar in the wake of a cyclone storm last weekend that left at least 22,500 people dead.
Myanmar cyclone: Israel to send aid

Foreign Ministry to send medicine, medical equipment; Israeli humanitarian groups expected to send medical teams .

Helping other nations in need is far from foreign to Jews or Israel.jewish-star.gif

Save A Child’s Heart (SACH) welcomed the arrival of its first group of Rwandan children suffering from heart disease to be operated on in Israel at the Wolfson Medical Center.

The five children, who range from just a few months old to 15 years of age, landed in Israel today accompanied by a Rwandan nurse as well as by two mothers.

Other Interesting Israeli Activities

NISPD, one of several Israeli organizations that initiated a program to assist Sri Lankan cooperatives to get back on their feet after the 2004 tsunami ruined their livelihood.
Three years have passed since the Asian tsunami hit the shores of the Indian Ocean, leaving in its wake over 250,000 dead, 125,000 injured and almost two million homeless.

Africa.

Where the starlets go to prove their humanity and fly home in a private jet never to return again.

Where they go to adopt babies (because there are clearly none in America that need adoption) and tote them around with their toy poodles in their designer bags.

Israel? OH, they’re still there…not for the photo ops. They’re ….helping.

LIFE project is an initiative of Brit Olam that unites Israelis and Jews in volunteering for social change in Israel and in development countries.
Brit Olam – the International-Israeli Jewish Volunteer Movement - is the leading Israeli non-governmental organization in international relief and humanitarian aid.

As part of the international community’s effort to eradicate poverty, the State of Israel and American-Jewish organizations have contributed $118,000 to assist the starving in Africa.
Israel and Jewish organizations help to eradicate poverty in Africa
Israel has decided that the funds donated will be distributed by the World Food Programme (WFP) to the countries of Mauritania, Malawi and Kenya.

The list goes on and on and on.

Jews helping Muzlims:

Hundreds of Mus-lims who have fled Darfur are rebuilding their lives in Israel.
An unlikely refuge
“Even though we’re Mus-lim, the Is-lamic world has done nothing to protect us”, said Ya-ssin, a refugee whose tortured flight from Darfur finally brought him to Israel three years ago. He was one of the first Darfurians to make it into Israel across the border from Egypt, and has dedicated his life to helping hundreds of his fellow countrymen who have made the same perilous journey.

Do you suppose CA-IR wants to take a moment out of their busy terrorist planning schedule to thank Israel? ponder.gif

America, aiding as always:

Incidentally, Myanmar resisted entry for a U.S. disaster assessment team. Go figure..

The White house said Tuesday the United States will send more than $3 million to help victims of a devastating cyclone in Myanmar, up from an initial emergency contribution of $250,000 .
Bush urges Myanmar to let U.S. help

The U.S. Navy has three ships in the Gulf of Thailand that could be dispatched to Myanmar if needed. The USS Essex, an amphibious assault ship, as well as two other vessels in its strike group, the USS Juneau and the USS Harper’s Ferry, are there preparing to participate in an annual exercise with Thailand’s naval forces.

That is our United States Navy ready and waiting to rally round and offer aid.
Our beloved sailors and troops.

By the way, have ya heard of any Muzlim countries sending doctors to aid the victims of this latest travesty? mad-smile.gif
Just askin.

    I believe it is in the DNA of the Jewish people, to reach out and help those in need and less fortunate…
    just not those that think Homocide bombing and automatic weapons and hourly rockets fired on their civilian population is what neighbors should be doing to each other…but..thank GOD, the Israeli goverment strongly embrace the motto..”Tall fences make for great neighbors”..the taller the better.
    Excellent research on this post Angel….i am quite sure you upset the fantasies of many Zionist bashing, Israel and Jew hating liberal braindeads.

  2. Robert says:

    Now isn’t that a hoot. The two countries that are vilafied the world over by other countries, are always the first ones to offer help…….but you know….if we didn’t offer help….the world would be against us then too. A no win situation for Israel and the United States? I think not. God sees all and knows who is being a Samaritan here…….

  3. Katie says:

    This is nothing new. Israel has been sending help to others for 60 years. The IDF is known for this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtU8dskiiY0

    It is an unwritten commandment from G-d to help others, regardless of their race or religion. No where in Islam is that written.

    I just wish other nations would do their parts too. Especially those nice rich Muslim nations. After the tsunami Saudi Arabia sent a measly $1 million. Said it didn’t know if it was going to only Muslims. Figures.

    As for those “celebrities” they can keep their designer bags and idiotic dogs. I’m waiting for a nation to go to Angelina Whorelee and tell her if she wants to adopt, she must first get married!

    Very surprised to hear that there are any Jews at all in that hole of horrors, Burma.

  7. Brooke says:

    I thought the Myanmar gov’t had refused American and Israeli aid. Did that change, or are we just going to be ready for when they change their minds, as they likely will once they get over their pride?

  8. Gayle says:

    Muslim countries sending doctor’s to help those in other countries? LOL! Nope… haven’t heard of that one, Angel.

    Like Brooke, I thought they had refused help too. I hope that has changed. What a disaster that mess is!

    What really gets me down hon, is that it’s not only other countries who disrespect Israel and America and don’t give either country any credit for all the good in the world, it’s also a huge percentage of the American population. It’s obvious what part of their anatomy they have their heads stuck in and I wish they would pull them out!

    Thanks Angel for stopping by my place. Sorry for my abscense.

    I hope to be back on track in the forth coming week…

    Keep up the good work!

    “By the way, have ya heard of any Muzlim countries sending doctors to aid the victims of this latest travesty?”

    Saudi Arabia is sending money to build mosques, so the survivors can be trained as suicide bombers.

    (Oh, wait a minute… was that just a rumor? Ah…)

    That’s funny about the Muslims from Darfur going to Israel.

    The day will come when the people of the world speak the truth about the Palestinian Authority, how it’s a big thugocracy, and when the Palestinian people realize just how bad they have it, and rise up against the terrorists who run their patch of land. Just like the people of Darfur, the people of Palestine are going to find that the Israelis are the best friends they have. What have their Arab brothers done for them, other than keep them miserable, foment hatred, and fund a proxy war against Israel to keep Arab eyes off the corruption of Arab leaders?

    Great post, Angel. Nice pics, as usual.

    You know this might not make a popular guy around here but I say Let em croak.
    We have to get our house in order around here, we have staggering homeless numbers, we have yet to help THOUSANDS of our own people after Katrina….and our Borders are leaking invaders at an alarming rate….Fix these things and then offer aid.

    We have offered aid to EVERYWHERE, then get kicked in the mouth when we stand up for ourselves in the WOT.
    The leadership of Myanmar wants no help from us. I say again Screw em let Saudi Arabia or Iran help them.

    Compassion has limits and when you get kicked in the nuts that compassion leaves with the exhale.

    Seane-Anna and Bushwhack are both right on this….America won’t get any credit for this, neither will Israel and when our assistance is continually rebuffed, sometimes it’s better to accept that someplaces hate us so much, they simply don’t want our help.

    I heard the Dubya was thinking of getting the Airforce to do air drops if those slimeballs in the Junta were insisting on letting their subjects die. It’s saddening, the level of depravity amongst some of these slimeballs, being incapable of helping and then to hinder those who want to.

  35. Incognito says:

    Had no idea there were Jews in Burma. God love ‘em. I remember reading about the 2 left in Kabul, and how they hated each other.

    What a mess in Burma. The Junta, however, has been taking their time, and refusing many foreign NGOs relief organization members. Sickening.
