Israel has one of the best (if not the best) disaster relief units in the world. Whether in Brazil, Japan, Mozambique, Mexico, or Nepal, Israel is always one of the first countries to provide aid when disaster strikes. They do this without expecting anything in return. Despite all of Israel’s humanitarian efforts in the developing world, the Left continues to vilify her at the behest of neo-Nazis. It’s a travesty.
IsraAid Prepares to Fly to Support Hurricane-Slashed Bahamas
By Hana Levi Julian, The Jewish Press, September 3, 2019
As Hurricane Dorian lashed the Bahamas with winds of up to 220 miles per hour, Israeli humanitarian aid agency IsraAID has been preparing to send emergency support.
While the full scale of Dorian’s devastation is still unclear, at least five people were reported killed and as many as 13,000 homes damaged or destroyed on Abaco and Grand Bahama islands.
The hurricane made landfall on Grand Bahama in the early hours of Monday morning, continuing to batter the island all day. By Tuesday afternoon, Dorian had slowed to a Category 2 hurricane, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake as it rolled on, packing sustained winds of 110 miles per hour.
The storm is still considered a “monster,” and expected to get “dangerously” close to Florida’s east coast in the overnight hours of Tuesday into Wednesday morning. Miami is under a tropical storm warning, but Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Melbourne and Fort Pierce were under a hurricane warning as of mid-afternoon Tuesday, as was Charleston, South Carolina. Savannah Georgia, Wilmington and Hatteras, North Carolina were all under a hurricane watch.
