I have been following up on a list of countries that have donated money to Haiti, and found one most interesting fact. No Arab country has donated money to the country.

This is not to say that Islamic countries have not donated money – Turkey, Indonesia and Morocco have donated either money, goods or equipment.

This is a very peculiar thing, for some Arab countries are very wealthy, and donating a few million would not break the bank for them.

Mind you, poor countries as Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Guiana have indeed donated money.

As one of the 5 tenets of Islam is charity, I just wonder about these countries interpretation of their own religion.

Shame on them.
