I have just received a couple of important links from CiFWatch
There is also a great thread on OvVaGoy:
Chas, on OyVaGoy makes a point that I had thought of myself; namely that it’s so often Israel that is first to help others, it’s now very inspiring to see how so many countries, some of them quite unlikely, sending help to Israel.
These are the countries I know about:
PM Netanyahu has sent a message of thanks to Turkish PM Erdogan in a telephone call as follows:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke a short while ago today (Friday), 3.12.10, with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and thanked him for the assistance in the efforts to control the Carmel brushfire: “We very much appreciate this mobilization and I am certain that it will be an opening toward improving relations between our two countries, Turkey and Israel.” Prime Minister Netanyahu noted that his Turkish counterpart had expressed his willingness to help and Turkey’s condolences, as well as his personal condolences, to the families of the casualties.
Let’s hope some good can come of this tragedy.
