Virus of Anti-Semitism Now Hitting "Doctors Without Borders"

Israeli doctors did a mitzva in flying to the Congo to treat 50 local villagers who had been severely burned. They worked hard, nonstop treating these burn victims. They even trained doctors to perform skin grafts. If that wasn't enough, they donated tons of medical equipment before they left.

The Doctors Without Borders refused to work with the Israeli and para medics. One Israeli medic said they treated them as though they were occupiers. That was because Dr. Marie Pierre Allie, President of the French branch of the organization, said that Israel's self defense actions in Gaza were worse than the Darfur genocide in the Sudan.

What a horrible accusation! To my knowledge, none of these doctors without borders were ever witnesses in Gaza. They are going on heresay, slander, which is anti-semitism.

There you are. We have Israeli doctors saving lives and doing their best and they are being discriminated against by their peers because of what we call loshun hora-gossip-maligning gossip plus anti-semitism, and maybe just a pinch of jealousy thrown in for good measure. I mean, how many of the ten commandments are these doctors breaking already?

George Greenberg's family in Melbourne, Australia always donated to this group, but after this, will not. He asks that people read this report from Alan Dershowitz. I've just read a presentation by Alan Dershowitz -http://cgis.jpost.com/Blogs/dershowitz/entry/moonbats_against_israel_posted_by which you too should read and think about.

As George commented, These doctors are singling out one Jewish democratic state with terrible accusations yet they're not bothered by anything done by the Islamic states, of which I have counted 46 which have a majority of Muslims in their population. There's all sorts of problems with how they treat their citizens and others, yet no one says a word.

Israel just invented and introduced to the world a sniffing tester to find cancer. Here we are sharing these wonderful medical inventions, of which this is but one, and we are treated in this way. 2,000 years of being treated like pariah is getting old. 6 years of being shelled by rockets and mortars before reacting to me shows an awful lot of restraint and thought, but in the end a desire to live.
We're less than 1% of the human population. We thought the world was improving and growing up, but perhaps not.

Israel’s Darfur Refugees
Israeli soldier with Darfur refugees (Courtesy of IsraAid)Israel has granted asylum to hundreds of refugees from Sudan’s Darfur region.[8] According to the UN, more than 400,000 people have been killed in the six-year-old Darfur conflict, and more than two million more have been displaced.[9] The conflict has been marked by widespread atrocities such as mass rape, military attacks on civilians and ethnic cleansing.[10]
In September 2007, the Israeli government granted asylum to 498 Darfur refugees.[11] The following month, the government gave 51 of them new homes at kibbutzes – collective living communities unique to Israel – where they now live and work.[12] On Oct. 17, 2007, then-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced that 300 of the Darfur refugees were successfully settled in homes in the southern Negev region.[13] Israel’s foreign ministry announced in September 2007 that it would donate $5 million to victims of genocide in Darfur -- $4 million via international aid organizations and $1 million through the purchase and donation of medicine and water desalination equipment. [14] There also has been significant grassroots, social activism by Israeli civil society organizations on behalf of Darfur refugees. The Committee for Advancement of Refugees from Darfur (CARD) coordinates and oversees all of Israel’s media efforts and political advocacy aimed at bringing greater public awareness to the Sudanese refugee problem in Israel.[15] Similarly, the Hotline for Migrant Workers, a non-governmental organization, has undertaken legal action for the refugees. The Hotline’s volunteers visit detention centers, take testimonies and provide clothes and phone cards.[16] Among other NGOs assisting Darfurian refugees are the World Union of Jewish Students Institute (WUJS) in Arad, the Jewish Agency for Israel[17] and a number of kibbutzes such as Kibbutz Eilot in southern Israel.[18]

Voice of America recently profiled a 25-year-old Israeli man, Yotam Sheffy, who has dedicated himself to helping provide Israel’s Darfurian refugees access to food, medical care and schooling. Sheffy, whose grandparents are Holocaust survivors, said, “There's no difference. And if the doors weren't open there for my grandmother by simple village Christians, not me nor my father would be alive."[19]
