Is there a response from the "Muslim" Arab Countries to Pakistan quake?
Rescue workers on Sunday fanned out to remote areas of Pakistan even as one officials claimed over 30,000 people had died in Saturday's massive earthquake that left several thousands buried under the debris. More..
This scary natural disaster is grabbing the attention of the world on how to save some people that could be still alive under the debris as the British rescue team heard a woman who has been under the rubble for 2 days and a half with no food or drink. There could be hundreds in the same position. Help is needed from all over the world. International aid, including emergency rescue workers, began to flow in. Planes arrived from Turkey, Britain, Japan and the United Arab Emirates. Russia, China and Germany also offered assistance.
Pakistan is a Muslim country, but it is not Arab. It does not fall under the Pan-Arabism project, hence not eligiable for the sympathy, out loud cries and Arab media propaganda.
Arab mass media are capable of scandalizing the US, Britian and Israel for the Palestinian and the Iraqi Muslims as the occupiers and invaders. I hope they remember that the first rescue teams that arrived in Pakistan were from India and US army bases in Afghanistan. Westesn rescue teams are frantically struggling to save the "Muslim" survivors. I hate to use Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Sikh or Buddist, but I am using the same language of some Arab media outlets. Here is an example: "The Muslims in the Palestinian territories and Iraq are attacked and invaded by the Christian west or the Jewish Israel." Simple-minded press tend to interpret any disaster in a non-muslim country as a punishment from God, I wonder how would they call it in Pakistan?
