Israeli Response To Haiti

As we all are preparing ourselves for Hollywood’s response to the Haitian crisis (thank you George Clooney) it is worth remarking on the swift, efficient and highly effective Israeli response.  They were on the ground in an impressive few days and saved lives, gave hope and reminded us once again why we should be proud of the Israeli army and how the world should take a lesson from this.  It is good and proper that Hollywood stars and performers of mythic proportions (Clooney! Madonna! Bono!) should use their power and money in this way, but nothing trumps the Jewish state’s response - if only Orly Adelson (head of Dick Clark Productions would make a movie about this) - as a former Israeli soldier, she is uniquely situated to do so, as well as produce the Golden Globes - which she did so effectively, last weekend.
