Syrians get medical treatment in Israel

Syrians brave risks to seek treatment in Israel

NAHARIYA, Israel (AP) — It looks like a standard scene in the corner of the children’s intensive care unit at a hospital in this northern Israeli town. The counter is jammed with stuffed animals, and balloons shaped like princesses float against the ceiling. A nervous, silent father hovers over his injured daughter.
But he and the girl are Syrians, spirited across the border by the Israeli military for medical treatment unavailable amid the civil war at home. He is silent because he cannot speak Hebrew, nervous because his presence in Israel, Syria’s long-time enemy, could place his family in danger if his trip is discovered.
He came to the hospital six days ago, following after his daughter. He refuses to say how he arrived, and hospital staff step in quickly to deflect questions about the journey. He has no contact with his family at home. All of this, he says, is worth it.
“For my daughter, I’m willing to do anything,” said the father, who, like his 12-year-old daughter, could not be named because he fears repercussions in Syria. While he was grateful for high-quality medical care, he was visibly afraid of the potential consequences of his trip, speaking in one-word answers and keeping his eyes lowered. He checked footage filmed by an AP Television News crew to make sure his daughter’s face was obscured.
On both sides of the Syrian civil war, militant groups like Hezbollah and fighters linked to al-Qaida are virulently opposed to Israel’s existence. The Syrian regime itself is a longtime Israeli enemy, and its citizens are banned from travel there, facing possible jail time if they are discovered. The two countries have fought two wars, and Israel has annexed the Golan Heights, a plateau it captured from Syria in 1967. President Bashar Assad and his late father Hafez, the former Syrian ruler, have used their anti-Israeli stance as a source of legitimacy and have hosted and funded anti-Israeli militants. Generations of Syrians have grown up under propaganda vilifying the Jewish state.
All of this means that the father’s presence in Israel could mean trouble for his family back home from any number of groups. Those fears, said Dr. Zonis Zeev, the head of the children’s ICU at Western Galilee Medical Center in the city of Nahiriya, are often the hardest for the patients to overcome.

  1. Well, obviously the Jooooos are evil, because they are willing to care for him in their hospital.
    Somehow.
    I guess.

    Syria and Iran are similar to going into the kitchen of really bad diner:
    no matter HOW horrible it looks on the surface, …it’s always even worse behind the scenes.

    AFTER he collects his now-treated daughter, watch for a satchel bomb to be left when HE leaves. While shouting Allahu Akbar!! I don’t blame him for not trusting the dogshit-for-brains AP. They’d show him in a NY second for the MB.

      Clyde, yea they would reveal him, I bet he’s more worried about consequences at home. LOL I guess it isn’t ‘t the only story, but AP could be your worst nightmare in any event. They remind me of the ACLU — never turn your back.

    Bull, well this certainly disproves the Israelis as monsters. And this kind of help goes on all the time in Israel. What a shame that the world cannot admit to these acts of kindness. In this case that man had better not go back to Syria. He’ll be dead in 60 seconds. I hope his name remains unknown for him and his family’s sake.

        Bull, if any country has a good human rights policy it’s Israel and it makes me livid how they are called terrorists. Remember all that stuff I told you what they give to the Palestinians? I hardly would call that human rights violations.

    I’ve seen it with my own eyes. Israel has the best of medical care in the region. And they are generous and charitable with any who are in need.
    If the world only had eyes to see and ears to hear…

    BR: Amen

      tannngl, you sure are right about Israel’s medicine. They have the best and some of the best hospitals any country can have. And they are the most charitable nation. My dear departed friend Lucie told me all the time how anybody could get help if they needed it. Someone would come and help. She had a great friend, Golan, who came in every day to help her out since she was so crippled. Right if only the world would admit it. They know it but they are all antisemitic and don’t want to give them credit for anything.

    Great post Bull illustrating the kindness of Israel and just how charitable they really are. This propaganda bull shit making the “Zions” out to be creatures from hell is completely absurd. This is a great example of how much they value human life and will help anyone that comes to them.

    Israel is the only bastion of a God loving nation In the ME that only wants to be left alone to exist and for the camel jockey butchers to stay away, Don’t hear about Israeli terrorist blowing up children school buses do we? They are a peaceful people, but if their cage gets rattled they have zero problem letting the big dog eat.

    The towel heads would be on the complete opposite end of the spectrum of wanting to overtake or destroy anyone or anything that doesn’t bow to some dude named Allah. To hell with those mass murdering, godless creatures spawned straight from hell and may they one day know just how stupid it is to really piss off Israel!

      Dave,

      You said it. There is a war going on next door, for Pete’s sake and this is what they do. Yet you hear all these people complaining, Zionist this and Zionist that. But I hardy ever hear those people complain about what the Arabs and Muslims, or Islamists are doing — or even what their dictators are doing with impunity, without mercy.(or starting wars) But gang up and send a message to Israel? It makes about as much sense as a shit sandwich. Sort of like here where Hypobama does something wrong and we the people get lectured …about our intolerance.

        “Shit sandwich”…ROTFLMFAO!! Damn I wish I’d thought of that one! Bull, it’s like our Pharaoh and the rest of the world don’t want peaceful nations to exist. They want the pinko’s and terrorist states to take over. Do you reckon it ever dawned on them after us they’re next?? Stupid assess!

        O’Bastard gets credit for killing Bin Laden. Right now he’s getting credit for turning out economy around. WTF? Last time I looked there were still over 20 million un or underemployed and due to Obamacide companies were laying off folks or making them part time. Also; the f*cking retards are bragging out our less than 2% GDP and gas is still through the roof.

        “Run Bull run, the cross-dressing queen is after you”! What a boatload of bull shit the idiots in our country (which now well out number the sane folks) are buying into. As long as they get their loaf of bread each week they’re happy. Hitler would be so proud….

    Obama’s first four years he never visited Israel. But think of all those other places he visited, some twice.
