yes

your right this is an tough question. the last thing that I would want is to help an country that is bent on destruction. I also wouldn't want the blood of innocent people on my hands. In proverbs 25:21-21 it reads "If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the Lord shall reward thee." for me because it is an disaster I would help him out, but I would do so cautiously as I wouldn't want this to turn into an blood bath on my part. and if it did then the next time I would do nothing to help

yes, i would because otherwise you'd just be in acting in the same way as them

Islamic countries always give a percentage of aid based upon the number of Mulsims in that country e.g. in Haiti - they are the richest countries. We don't do that. The ordinary person soon must realise that the propaganda they are constantly fed about Israel and the West must be wrong as it doesn't tally with the evidence of our actions, and therefore we must have a greater ideology in caring for everyone despite ideology/race/gender.
