Pretty Amazing!!

Recommended Posts


Read this carefully! Pass it all over the world! ! !

There are over six billion people living on our planet. Of that six

billion, almost two billion are Muslims. That's roughly a third of the

total population of the earth.

The earthquake that triggered the killer tsunami was centered just off the

coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Indonesia is the world's most

populous Muslim country. It was also the most severely devastated by the

wave. Nearly 100,000 of the victims of the December 26 catastrophe were

Indonesian Muslims.

The vast majority of the victims were either Muslims, Buddhists or Hindu.

Got all that? Good.

Now, to the United Nations. The United Nations consists of 186 countries.

The most powerful voting bloc is the fifty-seven Islamic countries that

generally vote with one voice, especially when the United States or Israel

are voting the other way.

The United Nations' head of humanitarian relief, Jan Egeland, criticized

the West for being stingy. He didn't specifically mention America, but he

cited the exact percentage of the US GDP that is budgeted for foreign aid,

so there is little doubt of who the 'stingy West' was, at least in

Egeland's mind.

Egeland slammed the United States for not raising taxes so that America

could give a greater percentage of its GDP to the UN to distribute as part

of the UN's foreign aid package.

Editorials in the Washington Post, the New York Times and other liberal

newspapers echoed Egeland's charge, with the New York Times calling

America's $350 million in direct government aid 'miserly'.

The United States makes up some six percent of the world's total

population, but we pay a quarter of the United Nation's total budget. The

United States pays forty percent of the world's total disaster relief aid,

and sixty percent of the world's total food donations.

The $2.4 billion (that's BILLION) dollars Washington spent in emergency aid

in 2003 represented 40 percent of the total amount of emergency assistance

from all bilateral donors provided that year. Evidently, that isn't enough.

It didn't take long for these same liberal elitists to turn Mother Nature

into an American right-wing hater of Islam.

Not only had America's imperialistic self-enrichment policies created the

natural disaster, but also cold-hearted Muslim hating President Bush

wouldn't leave his ranch in Texas... which by the way, is his home -- not a

vacation destination -- and only offered a 'stingy' initial monetary


While these elitist journalist were assailing President Bush and expounding

the mantra that America should be giving more money to the devastated

region in a token gesture that would 'show Islam that America didn't hate

Muslims', UN Secretary General Kofi Annan was still on his vacation skiing

in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He returned to New York four days later.

The wave struck on Sunday, and it took only until Monday before the US

announced its $350 million in initial aid, sent the USS Abraham Lincoln

into the region, including helicopters, and C-130 transport planes, sent

hundreds of tons of pre-packaged emergency aid supplies, and deployed some

14,000 American troops to help with the recovery and cleanup.

In Indonesia, U.S. helicopters flew at least 30 sorties, delivering 60,000

pounds of water and supplies, from the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln

along a 120-mile stretch of Sumatra island's ravaged coastline.

Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, the richest nations in the Islamic world, donated

a paltry $10 million each. The United Arab Emirates donated some $20

million to relieve the suffering of their Islamic 'brothers'.

Egypt's contribution at the time of this writing is $104,000.00. (Note:

Egypt gets

$2 BILLION in US foreign aid annually)

And did anybody notice that the majority of the private donations came from

those evil corporate types the left so loves to loathe?

Pfizer donated $10 million in cash and $25 million in drugs. (That is more

than oil-rich Saudi Arabia and Kuwait combined). General Motors pledged $2

million in cash, agreed to match employee donations dollar for dollar, and

is sending vehicles to transport food and medical supplies to the region.

Other corporate donors include Nike Inc., American Express, General

Electric, First Data Corp., Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Exxon-Mobil, Citigroup,

Marriott International and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

On the other hand, where are all the Hollywood liberals? Activist actors

such as Ben Affleck, Susan Sarandon, Al Franken, Tim Robbins, Martin Sheen,

and Barbra Streisand have not been heard from.

And where is George Soros, the world richest left wing liberal?

Actress Sandra Bullock donated one million dollars, but Bullock is neither

an activist nor a liberal. (She also donated one million following

September 11.) Super-rich liberals like Bono and Bruce Springsteen are

promising to hold another 'aid concert' to collect money (not theirs) for

the victims.

America, as noted at the outset, represents six percent of the global

population. But in any catastrophe, it gets one hundred percent of the

blame. The UN's nose is out of joint because the Bush administration

refuses to funnel its aid through the UN's various aid agencies.

Kofi Annan wants to use the catastrophe to shore up the UN's sagging image

in the wake of the Oil-For-Food thefts from Iraq. The United States wants

to ensure the aid doesn't end up lining the pockets of UN officials. So the

US is 'too stingy' and gets another black eye.

Where is the rest of the Islamic world? There are fifty-seven Islamic

nations, and the world's biggest Islamic nation is the one that took the

hardest hit. But it is the United States -- the world's largest donor

nation -- that is grabbing all the headlines for being 'stingy'.

To put things in perspective, I saw a news photo yesterday of one of the

Indonesian victims.

He was wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the face of Osama bin Laden.

Pretty fricking incredible.

My attitude is that we cut ALL of the world off from aid for 12 months, no matter what happens we don't give anyone 1 red cent.

See how they like it....

The amazing part is not that we get blamed, called names and considered "stingy". The amazing part is that we continue doing humanitarian things, the amazing part is that we tolerate all this from the rest of the world, that Bush is called a religious fanatic yet when he helps out and just turns another cheek, yet some cleric is called a saviour when he calls for murder of infidels.

Well, someday we will see...everything has a balance...

Thanks Derek.

The point is pretty clear Nomad, and it's still EXACTLY right.

The United States, which is as you say 4.5%, but the aid is so much MORE then any other country gives that it is insane.

The fact is that the government may have comitted $350 million, but private donations FROM THE US, has probably doubled, maybe even tripled that number. No other country or group of countries can even come close, and when you add up all the military expenditures as well, well, it becomes a STAGGERING amount.

Again, I think we ought to cut off ALL funding to EVERYTHING, especially the UN, and see how long the world can take it.

The ONLY country we should even consider giving money to is Israel, everyone else can screw off...

LOL, Jag, do you even know what you are saying? If anybody in this world doesnÔÇÖt need money, its Israel. The jew people own this world, they own every big bank, every large investor and every large insurance company. The best part is you have probably never heard of those companies they own.

An example; Citigroup, ever heard of em? Their the largest financial service in this world. One of their businesses is insurance, but they donÔÇÖt sell insurance to normal people, they insure the insurance companies, thus effectively owning them.

Now IÔÇÖm not saying this is a bad thing, or evil jews blahblah. In fact I have the utmost respect for this, you own half of the world and most people donÔÇÖt even notice. All IÔÇÖm saying is they certainly donÔÇÖt need money from anybody to survive.

You know, I am NOT even gonna bother to reacting to such an insane post....

If it was an American that would state such a thing, I would go off the fricking walls. but since you live in Europe, I am giving you a break....

Take that as it was given, and if you can't figure out what I am saying, well.....
