While Arabs stab Israeli civilians, a Jewish hospital saves Arab babies

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent

I report about an organization, "Heart for Peace", a non-political mixed team of Israeli and Palestinian cardiologists, that have saved the lives of over 610 Palestinian children since 2005.

News of heightened violence coming out of Jerusalem in recent weeks, leaves many skeptical about the possibilities for peace in the region.

Meanwhile, at Hadassah Medical Centre in Jerusalem life goes on because "suffering has no nationality" and the doctors, nurses and patients here, whether Israeli or Palestinian, put the children first.

As one Palestinian doctor notes, "We are participating in the creation of life - we don't think about the politics"

This may not be what we hear in the news but this is a reality that exists and one we need to hear more about.

Yes, Terry, the headline is still true no matter what the headline read the day before. The truth is only hate in your sick and twisted mind.

Bravo you are absolutely right. In fact IDF saved many Africans who were killed by Egyptions as they sought safety in Israel. Lefties don’t want to admit this.

Terry did you know that IDF hold camps for Pal kids. That is just one collaboration. Lefties like you prolong this conflict by being asshole in denial. Even other Arms know these idiots are killers of women and children. The world should stand 7nited with Israel and that includes Israeli Arabs moron.
Hey did you know Tides Foundation illegally interfered with our elections?

Gee Terry Pals hate you too. That is strange such a nice troll like You. A female IDF just shit dead an Arab that stab one of the IDF. I guess she should have talked it over with him. You know Muslims killed by a female in. Combat won’t go to valhalah. No virgins for that asshole.
commented 2015-10-22 18:09:42 -0400
Nathan moron of course there is a reason. They hate Jews. Your dilemma is solved. Could it be Muslims hate you too ?
commented 2015-10-22 18:06:57 -0400
Ya Terry we can’t run out of next generation terrorists. You are such an asshole.

Wayne: you didn’t answer, so I’ll answer for you.
Yesterday, the headline was “Hearts for Peace: Saving Lives at Hadasssah Medical Centre in Jerusalem.” That headline reflected the positive side of this story, which is humanitarian collaboration between Palestinians and Israelis of goodwill.
Today, the headline is “While Arabs Stab Israeli Civilians. A Jewish Hospital Saves Arab Babies”. Much nastier, a complete move away from the actual humanitarian focus of the story, but much closer to the Rebel’s preferred editorial stance – Palestinians BAD, Arabs BAD, Muslims BAD."
It looks like someone last night checked the headline and realized – “holy shit, we’re saying something POSITIVE here about the Palestinians. Can’t Have THAT!!”

There are two sides to this conflict.
There’s a reason the Palestinians are pissed off.

Wayne, did you read the headline of this story yesterday? Have you noticed the edit?
commented 2015-10-22 07:30:11 -0400
Yes, Terry, the headline is true. Is that what makes it hate in your world?
commented 2015-10-22 07:04:26 -0400
This is a story about collaboration between Palestinians and Israelis. Too bad The Rebel has seen fit to revise its headline to turn what should have been a positive, hopeful piece of writing into yet another little sliver of hate.

Haiti – earthquake – one of the first field hospitals to arrive – fully kitted for major surgery?

IDF medical hospital

Have a wounded soldier form the enemy field in Syria? No prob – take him to the IDF – they will give him the best of care

No one ever tells that story

It is not politically correct
commented 2015-10-21 14:02:33 -0400
Why does it always seem that Israeli hospitals take these patients? Oh, that’s right, the Palestinians have NEVER built a hospital…
Too busy building tunnels…

Amazing how INSIDE of the hospital everything seems very westernized/normal! Looked great! Very safe place! The moment you step outside of the hospital, you realize how concerned you are that you will not live another day! Sad :(
