Israel helps Syrian refugees, typhoon victims

Published: Friday, Dec. 6, 2013 - 10:10 am

Re "Not a typhoon, but Syria's tragedy calls for generous help" (Viewpoints, Nov. 30): Trudy Rubin's article on the human catastrophe in Syria is superb. It shows that Syrian President Bashar Assad, along with his supporters, Hezballah and Iran, are targeting a peaceful population when they attack Israel. In fact, Israeli doctors have been treating Syrian individuals fleeing the forces of Assad and his supporters. Since Rubin also referred to typhoons, it is fitting to note that it was Israel, not Hezballah's Lebanon or Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's Iran, that sent an entourage of doctors and other medical personnel to the Philippines after the recent typhoon. One euphoric mother there even named her newborn “Israel” as a gesture of gratitude to the dedication of those doctors.
