Saira Rao, who bills herself as a “race campaigner,” is “genuinely terrified” about “Zionist” doctors — i.e., Jews — treating “Palestinian, Arab, Muslim, South Asian and black patients.” More on her antisemitic and baseless alarm can be found here: “American ‘anti-racism’ activist condemned over ‘terrified about Zionist doctors’ claim,” by Lee Harpin, Jewish News, January 3, 2024:
Saira Rao, founder of Race2Dinner, a group that aims to “help white women confront their own racism”, posted the inflammatory claim on X/formerly known as Twitter.
How amusing it must be to hear Saima Rao’s psycho-psychological vaporings as — for pay, of course — she helps “white women to confront their own racism. “I’d love to see the role-playing, the therapeutic attempts to make those “white women” aware of their own racism as they sit in a circle, and each in turn adduces the evidence of her own “racism” and begs to be helped to be “cured” of her illness. And every confession of racism is then followed by an intervention by Saira Rao, as the self-appointed “healer,” suggesting how each of these women can overcome the wickedness in their own racist souls to become….just like Saira Rao. For she, perhaps uniquely, has not a racist bone in her body. Just ask her.
When it [Rao’s tweet at X] was widely condemned as being antisemitic, Rao, who has been widely ridiculed for earlier posts about pop star Taylor Swift and “white nonsense” refused to back down, claiming “the majority of Zionists are Christian.”
Apparently Rao was exercised that Taylor Swift was named TIME’s Person of the Year, despite the singer not having spoken out on the “genocide” being carried out in Gaza, when Swift — Rao claimed — had only to mention the matter and her tens of millions of followers would immediately rise up and demand that their governments intervene to halt that “genocide,” Rao has a most peculiar belief in the power of celebrities — especially such naïve nitwits as the twerking Taylor Swift — to influence foreign policies.
The 49-year-old author had first tweeted: “Realising how many American doctors and nurses are Zionists and [I am] genuinely terrified for Palestinian, Arab, Muslim, South Asian and Black patients — even more than usual. And usually it’s bad.”
Have you heard of any American medical personnel who are “Zionists” (i.e. Jews) being accused by anyone other than Saira Rao of providing substandard treatment to their “Arab, Muslim, South Asian and Black patients”? Of course not. In fact, the people who are most knowledgeable about the matter, Israeli Arabs, are quite content with the treatment they receive in Israeli hospitals by Israeli — both Jewish and Arab — doctors and nurses.
Furthermore, every single Palestinian leader who has needed advanced medical care has sought out such care from Israeli Jewish doctors. Mahmoud Abbas was treated for cardiac trouble by a Jewish doctor who made house calls to him in Ramallah. Abbas has also made sure that his wife, his brother, and his brother-in-law were all treated by Israeli doctors. It’s particularly striking that his brother Abu Louai, who suffers from cancer, was brought to Israel for treatment, because he lives in Qatar and had access to the most advanced medical care, in brand-new hospitals in Doha; on which no expense was spared. Nonetheless, Abbas insisted he be treated in Israel. Abbas’ brother-in-law also underwent heart surgery in an Israeli hospital — surgery that saved his life. And his wife, too, was operated on by an Israeli surgeon.
Nor is Abbas the only Palestinian leader to seek “Zionist” medical care. When Saeb Erekat, the PA’s senior propagandist and negotiator, came down with COVID-19, instead of being treated in a Palestinian hospital, he insisted on being admitted to Hadassah University Hospital Ein Kerem. Even Yahya Sinwar, one of the leaders of Hamas, received life-saving treatment from Israeli doctors. While imprisoned for the murders of several Israelis, in 2008 Sinwar was operated on for a brain tumor by Israeli doctors who managed to save his life. In 2014 Ismail Haniyeh, the undisputed leader of Hamas, insisted that his daughter be provided emergency treatment at Ichilov Hospital by Israeli doctors, after she experienced complications following a routine procedure by doctors in Gaza. Haniyah’s sister was also treated in an Israeli hospital several years ago following an emergency. And his granddaughter was once airlifted by helicopter from Gaza to the same Israeli hospital for emergency treatment. Of course, the Palestinian leaders keep all this secret from their own people and from the wider public; these treatments by Israeli doctors don’t jibe with the constant attacks on Israel for its “genocide”; furthermore, ordinary Palestinians in both Gaza and the West Bank would be angry to learn that their leaders have been getting special treatment in Israeli hospitals that is only rarely available to them.
In sum: Saira Rao needs to know that Mahmoud Abbas, along with his wife, brother, and brother-in-law, the P.A.’s chief propagandist Saeb Erekat, the Hamas leader in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, and overall head of Hamas Ismail Haniyeh’s sister, daughter, and grand-daughter were all treated – at their desperate request, by the “Zionist” doctors who so alarm Saira Rao.
