  • All major media outlets ignore Israel’s massive humanitarian aid to South Asia – an indication of a national ethos of caring.

    When disaster strikes anywhere in the world, Israelis can be counted on to help. So it’s no surprise that within hours of the devastating tsunami in the Indian Ocean, the following humanitarian missions all departed from the tiny Jewish state:

    ● The Israeli organization Latet (‘To Give’) filled a jumbo jet with 18 tons of supplies.

    ● A medical team headed by four doctors from Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital arrived in Sri Lanka on Monday night (Dec. 27), carrying medicine and baby food. The doctors specialize in rescue operations, trauma and pediatrics.

    ● An IDF rescue team is now on its way to Sri Lanka with 80 tons of aid material, including 10,000 blankets, tents, nylon sheeting and water containers, all contributed by the IDF.

    ● A ZAKA rescue-and-recovery team arrived in the disaster areas Monday night, armed with its specialized equipment for identifying bodies.

    ● A Health Ministry contingent left for Thailand on Monday night to aid in rescue efforts. The group includes doctors, nurses and four members of the IDF.

    ● Israel has also offered its assistance to India ― a search-and-rescue team from the Home Front Command, as well as consignments of food and medicine.

    Yet, with the exception of UPI (as of this writing – Tues. 4pm EST), none of the major news outlets have dedicated an article to this remarkable Israeli humanitarian effort. This, despite the fact that the IDF sent all Israel-based journalists a press release Monday evening (Dec. 27), inviting them to the airport to cover the departure of one IDF group.

    This is all the more surprising given the fact that the major news agencies have entire teams of reporters in Israel, who submit at least one ‘Israel-article’ each day.

    Sky News mentioned Israel as part of a list of countries helping yesterday. Although you are correct that a more detailed report was not shown, but this is the case with most countries efforts.

    But they deal with one of the worst terrorism in the world ( preventing suicide bombers ) .

    What about the two jewish children stoned to death by an arab mob, or doesn’t that count. The problem with Britain today and much of Europe is that it’s very anti semitic; I am beginning to wonder whether we have been transported back to the 1930’s.

    Here we go again the same old argument that Europe is anti-semetic. It is thrown out whenever there is criticism of israel but it no longer has the shock/shame factor as it may have had with a post second world war generation. Europe is not – in general – antisemetic. There are some recidivists who still are. The current generation can distinguish between a racist argument and a humanitarian argument and the view is – in my opinion – is that Israel – granted it is subjected to tremendous aggression – is maintaining an apartheid system, specifically under the present government led by sharon and it will get worse under a more right wing Likud party. The present generation in europe can see that there is injustice being done to the Palestinians – and there is a hint that now that the worlds eye is turned to Asia and the devastation there – there will be an opportunity for the Israeli army to carry out more raids into Gaza and Palestine without being noticed. So please don’t call us anti-semetic – It is not antisemetic to disagree with your policies – we dont disagree with your right to live as a race or as a religion – We just ask for justice for both Israel and for Palestine and Israel holds the key to it.
    I think that to call someone antisemetic is equivalent to the Samuel Johnson saying that we have that patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.

    To say Britain is anti-semitic is disgusting and insulting. France has a greater anti-semitic movement/feeling than Britain does, but I wouldn’t call France anti-semitic just because of a few biggoted racisits. The problem quite often occurs when people, whether they be semites or not, go around shouting off that an entire country is anti-semitic. The same applies to other cultures.

    Because I am British, does that mean I’m an anti-semite and hate Arabs? Or perhaps the fact that I have Jewish and Arab friends and often holiday to places like Morocco to embrace the supurb culture that I am infact quite the opposite.

    For someone to generalise that an entire nation is racist, is infact racism, and blatent hypocrisy.

    Have you never watched TV, read a newspaper, listened to the radio? Sly interjections of sound bite kant are hardly called for here! :ph34r:

    As a Jew I have to inform you that from my standpoint you are talking arrant nonsense, and if you are a Jew too then I suggest you grow a skin quickly! Never mistake anti-Israeli feeling for anti-semitism in general.:ph34r:
