I, like many of you, have been reading about and looking at photographs of the devastration in Haiti after the large earthquake there on January 12, 2010. I have kept a list of countries and cities involved in the recue and relief efforts. What I find striking is that not a single mention or photograph has been read or seen from a single Islamic country. These countries are mostly very wealthy, so why aren't any relief efforts from, oh say, Saudi Arabia seen anywhere on the net or mentioned on the radio or television?
If you know of any assistance from a Muslim country or Islamic Republic, please post that info with link in your comments. Thank you.
Below is a list I have compiled over the last several days:

DUBAI BRINGs $50 MILLION IN AID TO HAITI - ONLY FOR ARAB FAMILIES
Finally some aid from a Muslim nation in Haiti.
Oh, wait. No aid for "Infidels".
“Princess Haya bint Al Hussein, wife of Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid, the ruler of Dubai , also flew to Port-Au-Prince last week on a "mercy mission" to deliver aid and rescue Arab families in the Haitian capital.”
