    I write this with feeling, for I have had to deal in the past with certain disasters. I was in Rwanda, in fact I was in Goma. I saw these International groups of underfunded miracle workers that were always short of either medicines or the correct instruments, in fact I witnessed cases where certain medical personnel were not qualified enough for certain proceedures. Sure, they did their best, furthermore one cannot but admire their resiliance in the theatre of operations, where occasionally a stray bullet would fly through a medical tent. However, lets get real. When Israeli doctors are sent to any part of the world, whether Kenya,Haiti or in this case some obscure village in the Congo, they arrive with all the correct medical staff, the full and necessarry compliment of medical equipment, mobile hospitals that most certainly neither MSF could ever hope of transporting through such difficult terrain. Israel and its rapid deployment medical teams have proven their worth. The political overtones by those that cannot compare with Israeli medical skills are well documented, known by many and shared in some perverse manner by those forces who somehow wish to equate Zionist Entities as an evil that in fact tarnishes those dedicated and worthy members of Israels medical profession. Israeli doctors, specialists, nurses or techincians have no political affliliations unlike those from MSF and their affliates found in many parts of Africa. Once again, I am proud, that the world has woken up and acted in a manner befitting the medical profession. For those, the unfortunate victims, my condolences.
