Crack Israeli team rescuing hostages from Kenyan mall
Within a couple of hours of news that the mall in Kenya was under attack, Israel had a crack special forces team in the air to aid the Kenyan police forces in trying to rescue hostages from the besieged mall.
Yesterday, Kenyan officials said the Israeli soldiers had arrived and “The Israelis have just entered and they are rescuing the hostages and the injured,” a Kenyan security source told Agence France-Presse.
Think about the difference with how the Americans reacted with the attack on their embassy in Benghazi…they had special forces on the ground and within a four-hour plane ride ready to go but all were told to stand down as their Ambassador and others were killed in a two-part 9 hour attack. The only help came from those who disobeyed orders and went to the aid of those trapped at the embassy…some of whom lost their lives for their bravery. The U.S. doesn’t even send in their forces to rescue their own, while Israel sends help from half a world away to help others.
