Skip to comments.Where are the Arabs when Moslems really are Refugees? (UBL sending planeloads of aid?)

I have been watching with growing amazement how the Americans are being criticized for the disaster in the Indian Ocean. First, the UN (Americans are the largest financial contributor to the UN, with 3 billion dollars in 2003 alone) called America "stingy." Then President Bush, who made a policy statement 72 hours after the disaster, while Kofi Anan was still on Christmas vacation, and the Swedes, who had thousands of citizens feared dead, had nothing to say. But no one has said a word about Saudi Arabia's $10 million dollar aid package.
Wow! Considering the billions they have funneled into terror groups, that's really big of them.
Almost exactly a year ago, on Jan 1 2004, Americans also went to Iran to help when an earthquake killed 30,000. According to CBS news one Iranian cleric greeted the help with the following statement: "We hate the arrogance of the Americans and we are sure that they haven't come for humanitarian reasons, but for other things like spying," said Abdullah Irani, a mullah from Qum, the main center for Shia Muslim clerics in Iran."
And just try to Google Syrian aid for tsunami victims...See what you come up with. Zero.
Given the fact that Indonesia is 78% Moslem, and has lost more than 100,000 people, Sri Lanka is 8% Moslem, and India is 11% Moslem, one would think that Arab nations would now show an outpouring of support and sympathy. After all, isn't that the excuse they always use for backing the "poor Palestinians" -- that they are fellow Moslems and their solidarity is a given? And doesn't the West tip-toe around Muslim sensibilities whether it be the Americans who are terrified of entering a mosque (even one being used as a shelter for terrorists), or Parisians who dare to ask girls not to wear Islamic head coverings to class, or British, who allow local Imans to give hate sermons in London mosques? Isn't the Western belief that that to hurt or offend one Moslem is to hurt and offend them all? So, how is it, that the great solidarity of the Islamic world when it comes to their "pride" or their touchy religious sensibilities doesn't extend to humanitarian aid when thousands of Moslems lay dead in the streets? Where are the much touted "Moslem Benevolent Funds" when you really need them for something other than guns to kill Israelis and blow up planes?
Makes one think, doesn't it, that perhaps all these years their concern for the plight of the Palestinian "refugees" wasn't based on purely humanitarian grounds. Let's just see how charitable Moslems will be to the millions of Moslem refugees in Asia now, people who, unlike the Palestinians, really don't have a roof over their heads or a way to earn a living. Let's just see.
If by giving aid they are expected to like us we are in for a rude awakening. Just like the Rats are, we never can do enough to buy their respect.
The Muslims are busy all over the world with all of the soup kitchens, homeless shelters and aid organizations that they run. /sarc
Given my tagline, I think I got what I asked for, just a little geographically vague. Next time I'll give a latitude and longitude.
It's chic to bash the U.S., that's all it seems to come down to.
the arabs are too busy hating jews and each other to contribute anything to this world other than death and poverty.
So much for their sacred ummah, and the Arab gutter.
if anyone believes that UBL gives a rat's arse about Muslims then I have some swamp land in FL for sale! LOL
These so called Muslim "extremists" wouldn't know the Koran if someone hit them over the head with it. LMAO
These clowns are just a bunch of Jew and American-hating punk thugs who need to be exterminated...
Now whether the Muslims take out their trash or we do ....they will be taken out.
But one more 9/11 attack in America and all these camel jockeys will have to pack up, bag and baggage and go back to whatever hellhole they came from! PERIOD!
