The flags flying outside the IDF medical corps hospital in the Philippines

NBC News chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman was reporting live on Friday, Nov. 8 in Bogo, Philippines after the cataclysmic Typhoon Haiyan struck that nation of islands on Nov. 8.  Bogo is where the Israel Defense Forces set up their hospital, and began treating those in need. The IDF has named this “Operation Islands of Hope.”

Of course the bigger miracle –  or at least the more important one – is that the Israelis are able to help so many.  And the thanks?  A baby was born at the hospital.  A healthy baby boy.  The parents named him Israel.

  1. I for one am very proud of my Jewish Brothers and Sisters who are in the Philippines serving all Humanity. I am also proud of my Jewish Brothers and Sisters serving in the Israeli (Jewish) Armed Forces, and I am also proud of my Brothers who are learning Torah in Yeshivas and Kollels. I know Hashem is proud of all of them as well. They're lives and what they do have so much value, and we must express out debt of gratitude for our Brothers and Sisters. To all of them I say, "Thank you and Yasher Koach!!"
