Muslim countries would prefer to their Muslim citizens suffer and die than accept help from the Jews. It tells you everything you need to know about their racist, hate-filled ideology.
Israel is renown for sending aid, medical assistance and supplies, etc. to areas hit by natural disasters across the world. The Muslim world should take a page from the tiny Jewish state.
Netanyahu’s Office: Iran, Iraq Turned Down Israel’s Aid Offer After Earthquake Devastated Border Region
After an earthquake devastated the border region of Iran and Iraq on Sunday, Israel offered to send humanitarian aid immediately, only to have the offer rejected.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered the aid on Tuesday and was turned down by Iran and Iraq right away, the Times of Israel reports.
The 7.3 magnitude earthquake killed several people in Iraq, more than 530 in Iran, and injured more than 8,000 in the region.
The Iranian government is scrambling to get aid to the worst-hit Kermanshah province, where hundreds of homes were destroyed, according to the BBC.
Netanyahu told the Jewish Federations of North America’s annual General Assembly in Los Angeles about the rejected offer via video, according to the Times of Israel.
“I just saw the pictures of the destruction in Iran and Iraq from this week’s earthquake. And I saw these heartbreaking images of men and women and children buried under the rubble,” Netanyahu said. “So I am proud to announce tonight that a few hours ago I directed that we offer the Red Cross medical assistance for the Iraqi and Iranian victims of this disaster.”
“I’ve said many times that we have no quarrel with the people of Iran. Our quarrel is only with the tyrannical regime that holds them hostage and threatens our destruction,” Netanyahu said. “But our humanity is greater than their hatred. Israel continues to be a light unto the nations and this is what I am proud of. And all of you can be proud of Israel’s morals, and Israel’s might.”
An official in Netanyahu’s office said that the offer was immediately rejected, adding, “This shows the true face of the Iranian regime.”
This is not the first time Iran rebuffed such an offer from Israel to help the Iranian people. After an earthquake struck Iran in 2003, killing over 26,000 people, the Islamic Republic also declined an Israeli offer of aid.
Israel Is Sending Aid To Earthquake Victims In Iran And Iraq
Tim Pearce ,Daily Caller, November 15, 2017:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu approved aid to victims in Iran and Iraq after an earthquake killed hundreds and injured thousands in the Middle Eastern countries on Sunday.
Netanyahu spoke Tuesday via satellite to the Jewish Federations General Assembly, a conference focused on Jewish philanthropy across the globe and held in Los Angeles.
“I saw these heartbreaking images of men and women and children buried under the rubble,” Netanyahu said. “I’m proud to announce tonight that a few hours ago I directed that we offer the Red Cross medical assistance for the Iraqi and Iranian victims of this disaster.”
“Now you heard me right. I’ve said many times that we have no quarrel with the people of Iran. Our quarrel is only with the tyrannical regime that holds them hostage and threatens our destruction,” Netanyahu added, referencing decades of hostility and conflict between the countries. “But our humanity is greater than their hatred.”
A 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck near the border of Iran and Iraq, resulting in the death of more than 450 people and injuring more than 7,000. The quake is the deadliest of 2017, surpassing a September earthquake in Mexico that killed about 360.
About 70,000 people need shelter after more than 12,000 residential buildings were leveled in the disaster, according to BBC.
