By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Israel’s humanitarian efforts to help in Nepal. This morning, an 80-member Israeli humanitarian aid delegation set flight for Nepal, and will be joined shortly by another cargo flight with around 170 trained military personnel. Their mission? To achieve three things. Deploy major search and rescue operations, admit patients to our field hospitals within 12 hours of landing, and help the Nepalese people. In the next two weeks, our search and rescue teams will be deployed to locate survivors in the rubble of collapsed buildings, and a field hospital set up to provide medical services to the local population.
I will make it even simpler for you: you can follow our efforts here.
It goes without saying I am proud Israel is always at the forefront of such efforts and has offered to help even when rebuffed. And I am not surprised. I live here and I know it is how we roll.
The Israel haters (who are in many cases really Jew haters in disguise) are finding it really hard to stomach such humanitarian efforts – after all, it undermines their false narrative and damages their cause of demonizing Israel. But they get an ‘A’ for effort in trying to turn the lemons into lemonade (You’ll notice some familiar faces here):
And here’s Ken Roth, the Executive Director of Human Rights Watch.
You have to well and truly be drinking the kool-aid to not see the magnitude of hate and evil on display here. These are people more concerned with vilifying Israel and the Jewish people than with the welfare of those affected by such humanitarian disasters.
