    Dear Friends:
    Here is a piece of sobering news. With an attitude like this we will not see
    peace between Israel and the Muslim world anytime soon.

    Iran rebuffs 'Zionist' help
    by Herb Keinon

    Iran refused Israeli help in dealing with its catastrophic earthquake,
    saying the Islamic Republic would accept aid from all countries of the
    world, except Israel.

    Jahanbakhsh Khanjani, a spokesman for Iran's Interior Ministry, said, "THE
    ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN ACCEPTS ALL KINDS OF HUMANITARIAN AID FROM ALL
    COUNTRIES AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE ZIONIST
    REGIME."

    THE FOREIGN MINISTRY HAD ANNOUNCED THAT ISRAELI NON-GOVERNMENTAL
    ORGANIZATIONS WERE "LOOKING INTO OFFERING THEIR HELP" TO VICTIMS OF THE
    EARTHQUAKE IN SOUTHEASTERN IRAN.

    The 6.7-magnitude earthquake struck about 5:30 a.m., local time, collapsing
    buildings in the city of Bam in southeastern Iran, severing power lines and
    shutting down water service. As of Saturday morning, the Iranian government
    put the death toll at over 20,000.

    Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom issued a statement following the earthquake,
    saying, "The Israeli people and government send their condolences to the
    Iranian people. The government and people of Israel feel the pain of this
    human tragedy facing the Iranian people, and despite all the differences of
    opinion, at these moments a mobilization of the entire international
    community is needed to help the injured and the families of the victims."

    Large-scale Israeli assistance following a massive earthquake in 1999 in
    northwestern Turkey that killed over 15,000 people, and a huge earthquake in
    western India in 2001 that killed some 20,000 people, helped strengthen ties
    between Israel and those two countries.

    In 1999 Israel airlifted to Turkey doctors and equipment for a field
    hospital, as well an emergency rescue team comprising 250 persons,
    sophisticated rescue equipment, and rescue dogs.

    And in 2001, Israel dispatched a field hospital and some 150 people to India
    to assist in rescue and medical efforts following the earthquake in Bhuj.
    The help Israel provided in these cases is still mentioned often by Turkish
    and Indian officials when discussing their ties with Israel...

    I guess the statement from the Iranian government makes sense when you are teaching your kids that Jews are monkeys:rolleyes:
    No wonder the middle east is in a mess:scrutiny:

    Why don't we give Israel a fleet of B-52's to stage arclights with? Iran's interior ministry spokesman needs to stop breathing.

    Screw the Iranians!

    Muslims are always crying about how God will smite the infidels…

    Well, maybe God spoke when that earthquake slaughtered 40,000 followers of Islam.

    Sounds consistent to me.

    Does it make sense? Nope! But it is consistent.

    Don't pass judgement on the whole Iranian people based on the actions of their government. There's millions of Iranians pushing for change, and the Mullah's know it. I think there'll be a democratic revolution in Iran with a generation.

    Let's hope they have sense enough to push for a republic, instead, Mark. Democracy is a bad idea.



    Duh.

    Those who think such a thing can be negotiated are living in la-la land.

    To Hell with them!!!

    If I had the power, after reading that I would put all US funded actions back on the plane and come home! Sorry people of Iran, but you need to run a fsck on your government.

    What arrogant asses!!! See if they let Israel help, then maybe you would humanize them. Hey maybe with a couple of compassionate acts, we could end this stupid damnable war of cultures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To hell with them!!!!

    Let their mothers and children choke and die under broken stone!

    Yea but I wonder if the victims would turn down Israel's help. They have a "vested" interest.

    Very sad. It is things like this we should remember when people tout easy solutions to the MidEast troubles. It will be a long time before those poor people see peace.

    This shows the central problem western nations face when dealing with the Arab world. We try to use reason, logic, and common sense. As I said on another thread, you can't reason with a fanatic. These are the people who murder children to further their religious beleifs. They would rather die than change their social and religious structures. I don't really mind if they die in thier holy jihad and I beleive it is our duty to help them go to paradise. The biggest mistake the Shah of Iran made was trying to drag Iran out of the middle ages and into the Twentith Century. Bush I missed his chance when the Ayatollah died and 5 million of his psycho followers we out in the streets for his funeral. One small nuke detonated at about 5000 feet would have flashfried some of the most insane murders in history and set their cause back many years.

    The Iranians are not Arabs; they are Persians.

    Well ofcourse they dont want Isreal sending help. Those zionists doctors would be simply bottling up all that Islamist blood to make cookies with. Those pesky zionists.

    And we can send our docs as they would spend all their time stealing Irans oil.

    (can't say i'm surprised of this news)

    As I heard said when the casualty toll was announced, thats that many less we will have to deal with later on. How can any civilized country deal with a religion/State that feels there is no sin in Killing "THE INFIDEL" Thats you and me folks, and so I shed no tears.

    Very true. I should have said Muslim instead of Arab. I stand corrected, Sir.

    bfason,

    A bit harsh perhaps, but you are right. This thread is getting a wee bit uncomfortable.
    :uhoh:
