  1. And who is footing the bill for the Israeli assistance? So much effort delivered for very little world gratitude. Only the Yidden..

  2. I congratulate the IDF hospital in their efforts and success with what they have done in Haiti. They are just absolutely amazing beautiful people. God bless all of them ! They have truly touched my heart watching them give spiritual, emotional support along with the medicine and doctoring. Its enough to be proud of them like they are my own children. Their response time was like unto a mighty wind .when everyone else was sleeping they were already on their way. You go Israel !
