Doggone Muslin terraists! Now they're helping homeless people in Haiti!
:sarcasm:

The fortunate few to get a formal tent so far include Fenela Jacob, though the 39-year old has to share the 13-by-13-foot (4-by-4 meter) space with four other mothers and 16 children at a camp run by British-based Islamic Relief Worldwide. The land was donated by a Catholic church.

"We've got a lot more space; it's a lot more comfortable" than the bed sheets and sticks people were living in earlier, Jacob said.

The tents are so coveted, Jacob said, that she was forced to give up a second tent the charity had offered for her large group because other people threatened to burn both down if she didn't give one up.

The Islamic group managed to get 500 people into 82 tents left behind by a Qatari search and rescue team.


Of course, Rush and Pat probably think helping Haitians is terraism. :eyes:

2. Maybe so, but muslin isn't a very good fabric for a tent.

3. About helping the Haitians...
I belong to a local volunteer group who is having a Haitian relief drive. One of our members put something on his face book page about what we were doing and where our drop off points are. You would not believe the hateful comments he/we are receiving about helping "those people". I am truly sad, but extremely mad that people are so blinded by greed and selfishness that they can't help other people.
