A couple of dozen Israeli aid workers in Syria have also helped drum up funds and support for the rebels back home. A former flight-attendant has led teams of up to eight Israelis into Syria. She says that she has delivered satellite phones, chemical suits and 300,000 dry meals since arriving in Deraa, the southern city where the uprising began in March 2011, and has succeeded in airlifting some Syrian injured to Tel Aviv. Nir Boms, an academic who used to work at Israel’s embassy in Washington, says that he has helped deliver hundreds of tonnes of aid to Syrian refugees. “Syrians had no idea who Israelis were for 65 years,” says Moti Kahana, a computer entrepreneur who has spent time with the rebels at their office in Washington as well as in Syria. “We’ve built a bridge.” Amongst his successes, he counts arranging the visit to Syria last May of Senator John McCain, who has argued vigorously in favour of an American strike against the Assad regime. “In 1943 the world could have bombed Auschwitz,” says Mr Kahana. “It’s my duty as an Israeli and as a Jew to ensure that it never happens again.”According to a report in The Jewish Week on the Jewish organizations and individuals who offered relief in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Moti Kahana is director of North American operations for Israeli Flying Aid, which was described as “a non-governmental agency that does humanitarian work around the world on a nonsectarian basis.” The article went on to describe the resourcefulness of the Israel lobby-linked bridge-builder to the Syrian rebels:
For Moti Kahana, who has joined a few Israeli Flying Aid humanitarian missions overseas in recent years, the work this week did not stop.Working in coordination with FEMA, the Red Cross and various police departments, he arranged to loan large trailers — essentially portable gas stations with a 500-gallon capacity — that one of his businesses owns to the hospitals and clinics in this state and New Jersey that needed the gas for its ambulances and employees’ cars. He, and a small group of friends and relatives, all Israelis, drove the trailers, filled to the brim with gas, to each location.“As Israelis, we know how to react to such disasters,” Kahana, who served in the Israeli Air Force, says — in other words, bypassing bureaucracy, not asking “if” something is possible. “Israelis know how to get things done.”Israeli Flying Aid was founded in 2005 by Gal Lusky. A 2008 Haaretz profile of Lusky entitled “Woman on a mission” reports:
Each trailer is outfitted with a large Israeli flag, he says. “Everyone knows that it’s Jews, Israelis, who are helping.”
The organization’s work is often lost in the media fog, partly because it is at times carried out in countries hostile to Israel. Thus, the media is forbidden from mentioning what goes on there.That may explain why The Economist piece didn’t name Lusky, who just happens to be a former flight-attendant, or her secretive “Israeli Flying Aid” to the al-Qaeda-led “rebels” destabilizing Tel Aviv’s northern neighbor.
