Americans Raise Millions for Tsunami Relief...But Osama Still Doesn't Lift a Finger to Help Muslims in Indonesia

President Bush enlists his father, former President George H.W. Bush, and former President Bill Clinton to lead an effort to raise millions of dollars from private American contributors for tsunami relief.

Already, ordinary Americans are giving by the millions of dollars to this effort, expressing solidarity and sympathy with people in twelve different nations who have been victimized by the tsunamis.

Meanwhile, Osama bin Laden, who styles himself as one who cares about the well-being of his fellow Muslims, has said and done nothing to help or encourage people in the world's largest Islamic nation, Indonesia.

Curious, isn't it, that Americans and others care about the needs of those orphaned, widowed, and made homeless by this tragedy; but bin Laden remains squirreled away in a hole somewhere, clearly not caring about the people he could help with his millions?
