    The death toll is mounting yet nobody on JPP seems interested.

    ‘Request was received’: Israel to send earthquake relief to Syria as well as Turkey
    Israel to send tents, medication, blankets, could receive wounded for medical treatment; first of two Israeli teams to head for Turkey tonight; Syria denies asking Israel for help

    Netanyahu said that Israel had received requests through diplomatic channels to assist in Syria, and that aid would be provided there.

    “A request was also received to [provide relief] for the many who were injured in the earthquake in Syria,” Netanyahu said, and therefore he has “instructed that this be done.”

    It's terrible, and tragic - but it's not really a political story.

    Thousands now, and probably more to follow. Makes us feel so helpless when we're far away and unable to help in person. Hope ppl will consider donating to MSF, IFRC, etc. If you know other good relief organizations to donate to, please share.

    They are a country containing human beings with children just like ours. One of the most beautiful things about humanity is that in times of crisis like this, most of us put aside our hatreds and differences and help one another. I hope you will do the same. Please consider donating to international organizations like MSF or Red Cross/Red Crescent or even your local church if they're gathering donations for the people there.

    YOu should watch The Swimmers. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8745676/

    The Swimmers, Sally El-Hosaini’s drama based on the real journey of two young sisters from war-torn Syria to the 2016 Rio Olympics, earned a four-minute standing ovation at the Toronto Film Festival

    That is what makes us Jews different , God doesn't make human cockroaches he makes humans who some become terribly flawed and hateful


    Israel said on Monday that it had received a Syrian request for assistance with earthquake relief for the Arab state and that it was prepared to oblige, in what would be rare cooperation between the enemy neighbours.

    The Syrian pro-government newspaper Al Watan cited an official source as denying Damascus had made such a request of Israel, however.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a speech he had ordered aid sent to Turkey, the epicentre of Monday's earthquake, with the airlifts that began in the afternoon.



    "Since a request was also received to do this for many victims of the earthquake in Syria, I instructed to do this as well," he said at the ceremony in a hospital near Tel Aviv.

    In later televised remarks to his party, Netanyahu said the request for humanitarian relief for Syria had been relayed "by a diplomatic official" - whom he did not identify.

    "I approved this, and I reckon that these things will be carried out soon," Netanyahu said.

    It is in the effect that I would bet serious money that crappy building codes and corrupt building inspectors contributed heavily to the destruction.

    Great post.

    We're only going to survive long-term as a species if we make this transition. Empathy & compassion are what we need to be about.
