Israeli's Helping Out With Katrina Effort

[Media Source*]

(Jerusalem Post) "The work being done by IsraAID and their team members to help the people of Louisiana is greatly appreciated," [Rep. Bobby Jindal (R-La.)] told JTA in an e-mail message. "They are providing support services for people who have been devastated by the tragedy, offering whatever assistance is needed as it is needed. Their presence will make the effort to get people home and on with their lives that much easier."

What makes this story unique is that the United States turned down Israel's request for physical help with Katrina (although we did accept Mexico's). These Israeli volunteers had to sneak in so that they would be able to help some of the victims of hurricane Katrina. The Israelis did everything from sit in daily planning meetings (which included FEMA, law enforcement, etc.) to help rescue survivors alongside of the fire department.

Their actions have received praise from not only received praise from other Congressmen (such as Rep. Charles Melancon,D-La.) but also surprised a few people as well.

"The soldiers were shocked seeing us," [Gal Lusky, founder of Israeli Flying Aid] said. They asked the Israelis, "How come you came from so far? You have your own troubles. You're such a small country.

"The answer," Lusky continued, "is that we're a small country but big friends. For us it was so obvious. America has been such a good friend for ages."

Israel's generosity has no limits, and despite their fierce side towards their enemies (watch out Hamas) they have displayed a willingness to aid any country in time of need, even Iran. Israel's have generally been a very loyal friend towards America, and one of the few nations who would probably be willing to go to any length in order to defend the United States politically, economically as well as militarily. Israel's contribution towards the hurricane Katrina effort will not be forgotten by America, and hopefully by future generations as well.
