"We had some bad press as a result of misunderstandings," said Duarte. People in Staten Island, New York were looking for us but due to a New York State law, we could not start operations until after three days. We are now operating at full capacity throughout New York City and this Red Cross shelter at Nassau Community College with over 900 clients. These people have lost their homes. Lost everything. We are here for them and so very pleased to receive your good help."
(from op)

That's interesting... 3 days held up over..what law I wonder? Anyone have any idea what would have kept aid from Staten Island for so long? I'm not familiar with laws up there enough to even guess. I thought laws which would cost aid days were largely waived during times of wide spread disaster or crisis?

Good one for Israel Flying Aid though. Reading the story, it looks like a solid group and surely their aid is badly needed by all that get some!

thats great, but why not give the aid to the palestinians? I also think it was very nice for other countries not to impose a blockade to prevent israel from giving aide to those in need.

because Americans don't strap them selves with bombs and kill Israelis like the palestinians do with their own children...its also nice to see them working off some of the tab for all that aid they have gotten over the years

and good luck pulling off a successful naval block aid of the united states dont think its happened since the revolutionary war or war of 1812 if at all

but im sure if one were imposed we would just bring them to the land route that would let items in through official channels funny how the Palestinians dont seem to be able to get it send the stuff by land that is allowed into the country and it gets there...try to run a blockaded you can get your butt beaten for shooting at commandos or attacking armed men with pipes

ill start caring about the Palestinians when Jordan and Syria offer to give them a country of their own until their own kind stops using them as pawns i wont give a hoot

and to further clarify they had the option of having their own state they and other ahrab nations attacked them and i can understand with how the first deal fell apart the idf wont give them another chance to try to drive them into the sea if they can stop it

dont get me wrong, i think it is awesome how after receiving billions of dollars in u.s. aide, israel is kind enough to send thousands of dollars in aide. I agree with you that the u.s. does not strap bombs to children. we strap em to remote controlled planes, and target children.

yep except that our drones are currently within the conventions of warfare and don't involve children flying them (yet).war is not fair it is not clean and it shouldnt be otherwise it would happen alot more.

i personally long for the old days of the Greeks choosing a champion to fight the other army's champion and then that settles the fight no looting no raping no pillaging just their strongest against ours thats the only way i see war ever being close to fair.

sadly how war works is the strong wins and the weak looses and sadly that usually includes some collateral damage

and agin(not directed at you perse) but they had their chance to co-exist and they decided to declare war and lost.

imho this was nothing more than a pr stunt from israel, to make them look like good caring humanitarians. yes i agree with your point about the palestinians having had the chance to co-exist with israel, i also think about the native americans having a chance to co-exist with white america and we see how well that worked out. maybe israel can let them build casinos and pretend everything is all right.

actually the Israeli rescue teams and aid teams are some of the best in the world.
www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org...&_Culture/homefront.html

you bring up the native Americans and only blame Americans when the french British and Spanish killed as many if not more then we did.

and hey least our "oppressed" peoples have nation states (reservations) and are not subject to all the laws of the usa so as far as conquers go we got pretty clean hands yeah we passed out some small pox blankets but that was also pretty much the theme of warfare at the time,whats next you gonna bring up Mexico and how we "stole" their land too?(HINT we captured there president on the Field of battle and HE sold out his country for his life)

and also you would think if they were really all mad and upset about the whole reservation thing they wouldn't have given us access to the Navajo language to help us win ww2 and sign up in droves to fight for their "oppressors" same as the blacks who had been enslaved and experimented on(Tuskegee) they signed up and the red tails kicked alot of nazi tail during the war and yet they still helped us. even the Japanese who were in internment camps still fought for us ....maybe all these people aren't as offended by Americas actions and have made their peace with the past like the rest of the world has.

as per your casino comment well i dont think you can gamble if you are Muslim something to do with usary or some stuff but i could be wrong on this one.

the Palestinians had a chance at a two state solution they chose war and lost if they wanna get mad they can get mad at their Arab brothers who sold them down the river for political talking points


The first proposal for the creation of Jewish and Arab states in the British Mandate of Palestine was made in the Peel Commission report of 1937, with the Mandate continuing to cover only a small area containing Jerusalem. The proposal was rejected by the Arab community of Palestine;[5][6] was accepted by most of the Jewish leadership; and the British government rejected partition as impracticable.[7] Partition was again proposed by the 1947 UN Partition plan for the division of Palestine. It proposed a three-way division, again with Jerusalem held separately, under international control. The partition plan was accepted by the Jewish leadership. However, the plan was rejected by the leadership of Arab nations and the Palestinian leadership at the time, which opposed any partition of Palestine and any Jewish presence in the area. The 1948 Arab-Israeli War for control of the disputed land broke out soon afterwards.
en.wikipedia.org... but by all means keep making them seem like the victims when all they are the victim of is trust in there fellow Muslims and to their own greed when they had the chance for their nation they screwed it up

not gonna bring up mexico due to the fact that they were spanish and not native to mexico, not bringing up britain and france because that was before the unity of the states. its nice that israel is trying to help people in the u.s. , but if they want people to think that they are some righteous humanitarian state, maybe they should give back what is not theirs. screw the 1968 borders, how about the 1948 borders.

Every disaster in every nation received us support. Except maybe two or three.

It is nice to see someone doing the same for us.

I bet an Israeli generator is made in China just like ours are. Nothing different just someone over the pond that's all.

Approx 3.5 million greater New Yorkers have dual citizenship rights with israel.
So not little wonder...seeing as the rich Israeli citizen New Yorkers fund the Israel army via ...cough religious donations ...all tax free...funded by the American taxpayer.

But don't let truth get in the way of a sympathetic story written by a sympathetic ally.

You might have a point about a P.R. stunt.....IF this was an Israeli Government sponsored Organization. It's not.



Israeli Flying Aid (IFA) is a non – for – profit, non governmental aid organization which provides life saving aid to people affected by natural and man made disasters in developing countries worldwide. IFA provides assistance to all who are in need by distribution of relief items, medical assistance and any other life saving methods.
Source

As someone else noted, they have a well earned reputation for being among the best in the world at what they do. They happen to be Israelis and it's based in Israel....but it's a Non-Government group. They don't do this for P.R. stunts..it's what they do full time for a living. It's generally in the 3rd world, but everyone sees Sandy was something just a bit beyond the normal for our needing help.

I didn't even call Iran's offer a P.R. stunt. Not for this one. We probably should have taken it too, looking at that 300,000 gallon fuel spill. Iran has expertise with that. Oh Well... If Bloomers wouldn't let the Guard in without a fight, there is no way under the sun he'd let Iran in to help, even if they had the last help available.

en.wikipedia.org... you mean the borders they didn't accept when it would have been a two state solution and then they lost the frigging war?they had their chance and they screwed it up and if your gonna blame any one for it how about the people who wrote the plan Brittan?had they (Arabs) not started the war they would not have lost as much land and we would have two states in that region Palestinian and Israeli, the Palestinians got greedy and wanted the whole apple instead they got the worm.dont wanna loose territory don't go to war with your geographical neighbors.

more on topic thanks to wabbit 2000 i did not know that the unit sent was not a state sponsored trip and that they are a private company and yes id bet that if the generators they have didnt come from china that they could have come from he Germans they like giving the Israelis free stuff. it is nice to see that some of the world remembers how many times we have shown up to give aid over the years.

I suppose this (and all other organisations) are also going to help Haiti, that has lost 70% of it's crops because of Sandy.

Why do the rich get more help than the poor?

Hmm, according to the site you cite and link to:


Kahana [the N.A. operations manager for this Israel Flying Aid] said that most of the efforts had been donated by Israelis living in the US


and


"The food had been donated by Panera Bread and Dunkin Donuts in the Hartford, Manchester Connecticut area..."


Uh...thanks, Israel, for all that aid that is coming from...uh...the US.

And the website article also says this:

[ex"Israel Flying Aid, in having Israelis on the ground here in New York and New Jersey, have [sic] made Israel the only foreign nation to provide humanitarian assistance to the US during this disaster./ex]

Are they sure no other foreign nationals have helped out? Seems like a rather haughty claim to make.

And the article says to send all donations be sent to "P.E.F. Israel Endowment Funds," which has NYC address. I google this name and ONLY find this same article. Try googling "Israel Fying Aid" too (with the quotes) and see how many links pop up -- exactly one, the same one.

This all doesn't really pass the smell test.

That said, I also attempted a google search of "foreign aid for Hurricane Sandy" and didn't find any pertinent or germane links that mentioned any specific aid/help given by other countries other than the offer of aid from Iran that was turned down.

There you're completely wrong, chum. The use of aerial drones is not currently within the conventions of war. The US conducts secondary attacks against first responders to drone attacks as well as attacking funerals of victims of drone attacks. The US condemns militant organizations that conduct these types of attacks as terrorism, so it's terrorism for the US to do so as well.

In addition, please point me to one article that reports a child suicide bomber. There have certainly been some teenage ones, but I know of none where they have been younger than 17 or 18.

Moreover, not every Palestinian is a terrorist, your blanket statement to the contrary notwithstanding, so your excuse for Israel not giving aid to the Palestinians is specious. Moreover, Israel stops other aid from getting to the Occupied territories and has held back tax revenue due to them that Israel has collected. But we digress from what this thread is supposed to be about...
