Re Pakistan flood:

What is wrong with the picture conveyed by the numbers
of the "Total humanitarian assistence per donor" graphic
located after paragraph eight of the following link?:

http://www.debatepolitics.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=23

Well, to be absolutely fair there are a lot of f*cking things
wrong with it, such as that Denmark's donation (~10 $ million)
to the victims is over three times per capita more than that
of the USA (~96 $ million).

However, even the miserly USA appears generous compared
to the congregation of Islamic nations, whose population far
exceeds that of the USA, but whose aggregagate donations
are even less than Denmark's!

Hopefully the graphic has missed something big, perhaps that
the flood victims' Muslim brethren have contributed their fair
share, by oversight omitted from the graphic. If so, does someone
wanna provide citation?

On the other hand, it looks like $100 million funding for that
Ground Zero Mosque has been a snap. That makes me wonder
if Muslim checkbooks are more readily opened with a mind to
political incitement (and it was obvious from the start that
that Mosque would be politically inciting) than with a mind to
help those with such great need as the victims of this awful flood.
