Cuba has permanent field hospitals there. Venezuelan aid was the first to arrive in Haiti. Don't see you chiming in about them.
maybe Israel can bring over some organs they harvested from Palestinian prisoners eh?
Very nicely stated.
I mean, I have lived in the Dominican Republic for 18 years, so the Haiti issue is quite a problem for Dominicans, including my family and friends too. We are aware that Haiti needs help, it is just pure devastation, but now, unless the aid is distributed properly there is going to be chaos spreading all over Haiti, the Dominican Republic and perhaps part of south Florida. I repeat, the main problem is proper distribution of aid, they are going to have to get creative unless they "want" a situation beyond solution.
The Israel help is certainly appreciated, but one thing you mentioned is true. Unless they settle the situation and create a Palestinian State it is hypocritical for Israel to help Haiti, when they have the issue of the Palestinians to solve, which is quite severe.
So far everyone cares about Haiti, not only because of the actual incident, which was awful, but because it is the news all the time. I suspect once this mess is cleaned up, we will find out about other international events that may have been shrouded by too much coverage of what happened in Haiti.....
