    Priority was given to the US for one reason. They were in control. A massive airlift was underway. More than 200.000 Haitians died. Thousands were injured. More than a million needed water and food. Israel was given top priority in setting up a field hospital with the most efficient medical staff to hit the Island in the first 5 days. The other NGO·s were not excluded, simply it was a question of timing, logistics and most of all the "trauma" that had to be addressed. One cannot even dispute the US Military and its dedication, less so Israel and its team of doctors, nurses, and medical technicians. For we must also not to forget those, Doctors Without Borders, OXFAM, the Red Cross and the millions of donors throughout the world. For once, the world became one great nation, helping those so far away. Good day.
