    DAMASCUS, (PIC)-- Hamas movement called for extending badly needed relief material to the drought-stricken Horn of Africa in general and Somalia in particular in light of the tragic conditions that befell them.

    The movement said in a statement on Saturday that it was following up with concern news of the drought in Somalia and other countries in the Horn of Africa, which led to a serious humanitarian tragedy that was affecting the lives of millions of people.

    Hamas appealed to the Palestinian, Arab, and Islamic peoples along with the Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the charitable societies, and the international organizations to extend immediate help and assistance to the people in Somalia and Horn of Africa, who are threatened with famine and death as a result of this disaster.

    A 7-month-old Somali famine victim fights for life in Kenyan field hospital
    Tuesday, July 26,`11 — Seven-month-old Mihag Gedi Farah is the frail face of famine in the Horn of Africa. He stares out wide-eyed almost in alarm, his skin pulled taut over his ribs and twig-like arms.

    GAZA, (PIC)-- The Arab Medical Union in Gaza has been campaigning to raise funds to aid famine-stricken Somalians as the country sees the worst drought in sixty years.

    ‘’The campaign is aimed at showing the physical cohesion between the besieged Gaza and Somalia, and that the Palestinians have the ability to support and stand by the Somalis,’’ said Abdurrahman al-Haddad, the coordinator for the AMU emergency committee.

    The AMU has already sent a delegation and several aid convoys to Somalia, Haddad said, pointing out that those who saw what was happening there first-hand said the disaster is ‘’greater than can be described’’, as some 11 million Somalians are at risk of dying and four million experience hunger.

    Children suffering in Horn of Africa drought...
    :eek:
    Half A Million Children On Verge Of Starvation In Somalia
    August 2, 2011 - Now that Congress has all but raised the roof on our debt, we can all give our undivided attention to Shark Week and the Bachelorette finale, which can you believe the way Chrystie judged J.P. just because—oh, hell what is this on the cover of today's New York Times? The Gray Lady isn't letting readers off the hook today, with one of the most arresting front pages in recent memory, showing a malnourished child at Banadir Hospital in Mogadishu, Somalia, where more than 500,000 Somali children are verging on starvation. If you need a reality check, today the Times is on it.

    This isn't the first time we have painted ourselves into a corner with that stupid, political, terrorist designation.

    Maybe Hamas can sell their weapons to raise money for the Somalis.

    But they care more about killing Jews than they do about helping fellow Muslims.

    Atleast Hamas has tried to do something, honestly of every country in the ME you'd expect a blockaded one to help? Ignorant, very ignorant. What has Israel done to help the starving people? Serious question, I couldn't find anything.

    Money given to Israel to further bully a group of people is also a JOKE!

    So....Muslims refuse to help other Muslims -- it's Jews' fault.
