Subject: Info on Bam Quake, and how to help

Saadi , the great Iranian poet and philosopher of the thirteen century, A.D. had the following verses for these trying times:

?The sons of Adam are limbs of one another/ Having been created of one essence./
When the calamity of time afflicts one limb/ The other limbs cannot remain at rest.?
Just curious:
 
Why is it, then, that so many of Sa-adi's descendents seem intent on blowing the limbs off of so many of their "brothers" in our time?
 
Seems a bit disingenuous, to me.
