I agree, this should be non-partisan. I don't think parties and political persuasions should be an issue when you're talking about a disaster like this.

Since most of the affected countries are Islamic , doesn't it seem strange that it's the Christian countries that are giving and doing more than the oil rich Islamic nations? Why bash USA about what their giving, Saudi Arabia is only donating about $10 million, they'd probably make that much money in an hour of oil sales.

And please remember that this is only the government aid. Disaster specific donations to US based charities have gone through the roof.
