On 4international we salute the help sent by Israel to China to help the Chinese in the face of the terrible disaster of the recent earthquake. But is this news being broadcast to the Irish people by the Irish Times and other Mass Media? We will let you know on this later.

IsraelNationalNews reported the following:

( Israel has dispatched a third shipment of aid to Burma (Myanmar) and another shipment to China, as well, following natural disasters in both places.

The third shipment to Myanmar included medical personnel, training specialists and logisticians who will be deployed to the area hit by Cyclone Nagris in order to direct and continue IsraAID’s relief efforts in the field there. Almost 25,000 people were killed in the hurricane.

Israel has always ben at the forefront in sending teams of specialists around the world at times of great need. I think this represents the enormous progressiveness of Israel and of Judaism.

I have no way of knowing but I do wonder at how much aid has been sent by Islamofascist regimes, and I especially wonder if this generosity by the Jewish people has been publicised or hidden.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry raised $1.5 million in aid, following the earthquake, from Israeli companies and American Jewish donors through the United Israel Appeal.

China turned down an Israeli offer to send search and rescue teams to the region.

“What Israel is doing is the minimum that we can do to express the warm relations between Israel and China,” Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said. “Israel’s willingness to help out wherever a disaster occurs is an expression of the humanitarian side of Israel’s relations with the rest of the nations in the world.”

The Chinese earthquake left at least 62,664 people dead, 23,775 missing and about 5 million homeless. Thousands are now threatened by damaged dams that are threatening to collapse.

Two Teams to Myanmar
IsraAID has had two teams in the delta region of Myanmar since four days after the cyclone hit. They have distributed over 10 tons of relief items and trained more than 500 local medical personnel.

Funding the Myanmar efforts were the American Jewish Committee, CMS Companies, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, B’nai B’rith International, Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles and The American Joint Distribution Committee.

I am quite sure that Israel is not seeking thanks or publicity. It does this because it is a Jewish state and Judaism has always been a very special religion and ideology.

Yet as far as we on 4international is concerned this continual generosity must be made known and not hidden by antisemites.
