WASHINGTON - Setting aside political differences, the United States offered Iran temporary shelter to house up to 100,000 earthquake victims, the State Department said Friday.
The offer came after President Bush said in Cancun, Mexico, that the administration was willing to send assistance despite the differences with Iran's Islamic government on its nuclear program and other issues.
Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns telephoned Iran's ambassador to the United Nations, State Department spokesman Adam Ereli said.
In addition to shelter, the offer includes blankets, plastic sheeting, hygienic goods and water units, Ereli said. As part of the package, $150,000 in cash assistance would be sent, to be distributed through private voluntary groups, Ereli said.

Waste of time.
He's so generous with my money, I can't stand it!
Maybe they will consider trading their uranium enrichment program for food, shelter and clothing?
Are we already rebuilding our ingrate enemies before taking their WMDs down?
We'll house them in hotels in San Antonio.
Maybe our disagreement is with the religious retards running the country and not the average citizen.
I think we all just need to wait for Allah to do the job.
President Pollyanna is never gonna learn !
Great. Don't worry about the national debt guys, let's give money to Iran!
I agree, however, it's silly to rebuild nations on the target list when their own citizens won't defang their mad mullahs, IMO. I see both sides, just find it strange.
We own Iran. They know it.
The Republican Jimmy Carter.....
Jimmy only gave away the Panama Canal and was snookered by Castro.
Bush is giving away the country with his eyes open.
I think Bush is starting to believe what the Democrats say about him!!
Why dosent just bring the survivors over here to do jobs the Mexicans wont do.
I voted for this RINO 3 times, something I am not proud of anymore.
Come on Mr. President cut us a break!!! Just like the Dims, the Iranian government hates us! Save our money and don't waste your breath!
Thousands of people lost their homes.
