I am delighted that CNN—an aggressively anti-Israel network—reported on the Israeli presence in Haiti. In fact, Elizabeth Cohen, CNN’s medical correspondent, visibly shaken, reports that only the Israelis have set up a proper medical center, whereas America is still flailing around.
America is a great country, the greatest. But greatness comes at a price.
We are big. We are bloated with political opportunists, bureaucrats protecting their fiefdoms, and mountains of paper work. Big is not necessarily better, sometimes it’s just, um, bigger.
We Jews are a minority of minorities, but we adapt quickly to changing situations and because the Torah mandates that we treat our brothers as we wish to be treated, Israel, the Jewish State, moves swiftly and effiectively to alleviate the terrible suffering in Haiti.
CNN’s Elizabeth Cohen interviews Dr. Jennifer Furin in a makeshift medical tent on Monday January 18, 2010.
Cohen: “Have the American’s set up a field hospital?”
Furin: “Currently, not yet.”
Cohen: “The Israeli’s came from the other side of the world…”
Furin: “It’s a frustrating thing that I really can’t explain…”
Fox News—the only network that is pro-Israel, that’s because it’s Conservative—reports on the world class physicians from Israel who are in Haiti. Over three-hundred Israeli doctors volunteered, and out of that forty were deployed.
