Israel Rushes Humanitarian Aid, IDF Rescue Units To Haiti

Clearly this Zionist entity "Israel" is evil and deserves international condemnation for all its humanitarian effort.  Furthermore, Islamic and Arab regimes which don't contribute anything like this to the world, and who support Israel's destruction should continue to be legitimized by the international community [end sarcasm]  


As world governments scramble to offer urgently needed aid to the Caribbean island nation of Haiti following the catastrophic earthquake that leveled large parts of its capital on Tuesday, Israel and Diaspora Jewish groups rushed to get aid workers, supplies and money to the disaster zone.

The earthquake left large swaths of Port-au-Prince in ruins, including the National Palace and the headquarters of the UN mission to the country. Thousands were trapped under the rubble.

Despite the near-total collapse of the country's telephone networks, gruesome scenes of destruction, corpses and survivors without limbs have been broadcast from the worst-affected areas by international media agencies.

Meanwhile, the fates of four Israelis known to reside on the island, together with another handful of Jews who make up the Haitian Jewish community, remained uncertain Wednesday night due to the communication difficulties.

Meanwhile, an advance IDF-Foreign Ministry team left for Haiti Wednesday afternoon, taking with it experts in engineering, medicine, logistics and rescue operations from the IDF's Home Front Command and Dani Saban, the head of the Caribbean and Central America Desk at the Foreign Ministry.

Amos Radian, Israel's ambassador to the nearby Dominican Republic, who is also responsible for Haiti, flew to the Caribbean island to serve as Israel's eyes on the ground as the country prepares to send more and larger humanitarian aid teams to the worst-hit areas.

The advance team that left Israel Wednesday was carrying with it communications equipment that would enable it to stay in regular contact with the Foreign Ministry's situation room in Jerusalem despite the collapse of the local Haitian networks, a ministry spokesperson said.

Back in Israel, several government agencies and private groups were preparing aid delegations that would be ready to be dispatched to Haiti as soon as assessments on the ground indicated a need for them.

At the order of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, special teams were being prepared by the Defense, Foreign and Public Security ministries to rush to Haiti at short notice.

The Israel Police formed a special team to help Haitian authorities identify the victims of the earthquake, together with an advisory delegation to help Haitian security forces maintain order "if such a need arises," according to a statement released by the police.

Magen David Adom began assembling a team of experts as part of a larger American Red Cross mission. The team will establish field clinics in cooperation with local rescue groups and the Red Cross, and Israeli volunteers will help search for the thousands thought to be buried under the rubble.

MDA also said Wednesday it was considering expanding its team to a full field delegation of doctors, paramedics and medics that will join the other Israeli rescue missions.

Meanwhile, an Israeli coalition of humanitarian groups, IsraAID, is sending a 12-man search-and-rescue team, which includes emergency medical staff....
