In the year 1973 when the Egyptian army crossed the Suez Canal, killing and imprisoning hundreds of Israeli soldiers, then started to deploy its army in the depth of the Sinai, the Israelis were lead by Golda Meir - - One of the hardest days in the life of Golda Meir was October 6, 1973 - the beginning of the Yom Kippur War. It was a great tragedy for Golda Meir. In June, 1974, Golda Meir retired from political life. http://www.wic.org/bio/gmeir.htm
The Israelis feeling that their existence was at stake cried for help from the USA and asked to save them from the Egyptian invasion. - Egypt was only regaining its own land that of the Sinai . In 24 hours the American administration made and maybe for the first time in history what is now known by a flying bridge, the USA sent thousands of brand new military equipment tanks, planes, rockets, artillery guns with all the ammunitions that the Israeli would need to stop the advance of the Egyptian troops into any of the land that Israel occupied since the 1967 war.
Some of the tanks the Egyptians captured were still on Zero Km. I am telling this story , because it took the American administration only few hours to send help and rescue to the Israelis who are not Americans and are on another continent, while it took them more than five days to send any help to the stranded, devastated and isolated American people in New Orleans with no food or water , in one of their own USA cities Louisiana !

What would have happened if Katrina had hit Israel instead is a very pertinent question. Mighty America the caretaker of Israel would have turned the world upside down to get the required aid there in no time.
But unfortunately the majority of the folks in New Orleans who got affected by the Katrina were black & poor. So there is no incentive for the federal govt in America to act quickly. These people are not going to play a major role in shaping the destiny of America . All the big talk about racial equality – blah blah blah the blacks in America still have to undergo a significant amount of discriminations.
These blacks have been brain washed by the church to turn the other cheek so that they will rewarded in the hereafter. This is the same church in the not too distant past which was debating whether the blacks had souls or not.
