Haiti: Israeli Field Hospital Delivers 2nd Baby (UPDATED)

Haiti Earthquake: Mother Delivers Baby In Disaster Zone - ABC News

In the wake of the worst humanitarian disaster in years, post-quake Haiti could be one of the most hostile places on earth to give birth.
I have a question for the world so-called "community": If Israel, with its political, diplomatic and economic constraints, can get out there on the ground, set up and save lives - literally - within mere hours, why is so much of the aid sent by others not getting out there to people in the street as soon?

And if that's not enough, the "racist, apartheid" state of the Jews is sending even more:
In order to assist in the ongoing rescue efforts, an additional IDF aid delegation is scheduled to depart to Haiti on Monday night (Jan. 18). The delegation will deliver relief reinforcements that include medicine and additional equipment. Upon its arrival, the delegation will examine the needs of the IDF medical staff on the scene:

Well said:

"The international agencies that condemn Israel for its "disproportionate response" when it is attacked are not mentioning Israel's disproportionate response to human suffering. The U.S. has pledged 100 million and sent supplies and personnel.
The U.K. pledged $10 million and sent 64 firemen and 8 volunteers. China, a country with a population of 1,325,639,982 compared to Israel's 7.5 million sent 50 rescuers and seven journalists. The 25 Arab League nations sent nothing."

CNN video:

CNN: "How has Israel, a small country on the other side of the world, set up an operating field hospital in Haiti while the United States has not?" "It's a frustrating thing that I really can't explain," Harvard Medical School's Dr. Jennifer Furin said: "No one except the Israeli hospital has taken any of our patients."

As I posted on my FB page: I just don't get why this has to be so damned slow. I've reported and worked a lot with the US Army up close at Ft. Benning: Not to detract an iota from Israel - we're all damned awed and proud of them - but the US troops are also a "get it done, right, yesterday" group.

I think it's just the federal bureaucrap poseurs, and officious little protocol drones that infect the distribution system for so large a logistical operation.
