Where Is the Outcry Against Arab Apartheid?

Pages: 1 2

Last year alone, some 180,000 Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza Strip entered Israel to receive medical treatment. Many were treated despite the fact that they did not have enough money to cover the bill. In Israel, even a suicide bomber who is — only! — wounded while trying to kill Jews is entitled to the finest medical treatment. And there have been many instances where Palestinians who were injured in attacks on Israel later ended up in some of Israel’s best hospitals.

Lebanon, by the way, is not the only Arab country that officially applies Apartheid laws against Palestinians, denying them the right to receive proper medical treatment and own property.

Just last week it was announced that a medical center in Jordan has decided to stop treating Palestinian cancer patients because the Palestinian Authority has failed to pay its debts to the center.

Other Arab countries have also been giving the Palestinians a very hard time when it comes to receiving medical treatment.

It is disgraceful that while Israel admits Palestinian patients to its hospitals, Arab hospitals are denying them medical treatment for various reasons, including money. But then one is reminded that Arab dictators do not care about their own people, so why should they pay attention to an 11-year-old boy who is dying at the entrance to a hospital because his father was not carrying $1,500?

But as the death took place in an Arab country – and as the victim is an Arab – why should anyone care about him? Where is the outcry against Arab Apartheid?

    This sort of behavior can only be described as sociopathic.

    You mean you don’t see how evil Israel is?! So what if all surrounding Arab countries do exactly what they charge Israel of doing, even when there is ample evidence to the contrary. It is of no consequence when they cry against Israel as being inhumane when it is the only humane society in the region. It just doesn't matter that Israel has made concession after concession in pursuit of an ever elusive peace while the Arabs have offered nothing but Israel’s destruction. The Arabs call on the balance of the world in the name of human rights while it subjugates non-Muslims, women and children. Jews are charged with being apes and pigs yet it is the Muslims that bury their own daughters alive for "honor." But we shall never mention that. That would indicate we have reservations with the beliefs of “The Best of Peoples.” Better to go along with the notion that Israel is the bad guy in this. We should keep appeasing the dragon called Islam and rest easy knowing if we “give up” Israel they’ll leave us alone. We can trust our leaders in this….
