31. Choices made
Reality Check ,   BaGolan   (04.02.08)
Pali choices made every day: Buy qassams or medicine? Buy a homicide bomb belt or finance a hospital bed? Buy cyanide and ball bearings for the homicide bombers or pay for scan equipment? Buy gun powder or buy wheelchairs? Buy masks for their 'shaheeds' or pay for a doctor's training? The choice made!
32. Disengagement is fact
Reality Check ,   BaGolan   (04.02.08)
Part of disengagement is allowing the palis to make decisions and determinations as to how they will proceed. Israel has simply shut down its own borders to a hostile entity, no different than any other State would do. If the palis want, they can exit through Egypt (if Egypt allows) or send their sick to an Egyptian hospital(if Egypt allows). They want their own entity, and they have it. This is not a scenario where they should be allowed to pick and choose as to what aspects of disengagement they approve of and which they don't
33. We should be treating our own,let the WHO build
YSL ,   jerusalem Israel   (04.02.08)
Hospitals in Gaza and treat them in Gaza. And stop whining we have no responsibility towards our enemies.They and the WHO can go and fcuk themselves.
34. Israel Continually gives WAR Supplies to Implacable Enemies
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (04.02.08)
Israel CONTINUALLY supplies many trucks filled with food, medicine and other supplies to implacable ENEMIES in Gaza who NEVER stop firing rockets - who declare their undying hate for Jews and their intention to destroy Israel and commit Jewish genocide. Jerusalem is mentioned over 700 times in the Jewish Bible, not once in the Koran! The jihad is against the Holy One - Master of the Universe who gave Israel to Jews as an eternal inheritance.
35. ARAB Patients in Israeli Hospital REJOICE JEWS are MURDERED
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (04.02.08)
In Sep. 2003, the Jerusalem Prayer Team reported they spoke to the deputy director of Mount Scopus Hospital. He told them: "We treat the Arabs here. We treat hundreds of them that we bring in and treat them at no charge. The most difficult day is the day that a terrorist attack happens. When it comes on television all the Arabs are shouting and clapping and screaming with joy as they see a bus blown up, people dying. They are in our hospitals; we're treating them, and they are rejoicing because of the murder of Jews." When the U.S. EU UN talk about peace; the mass murder of Jews is the peace they refer to. STOP Inciting Children to Kill ! Addressing a youth session at the 1999 Islamic Association for Palestine's annual convention in Chicago, CAIR founder Omar Ahmad praised suicide bombers who "kill themselves for Islam," Council on American-Islamic Relations: "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." - Omar Ahmad (CAIR co-founder).
36. to charles
Jim Bean ,   Jerusalem   (04.02.08)
1) where did your rulers spent the money you got from the EU/US ? money is used to fight occupation 2) why do you ask help from the "zionist entity" that you want to destroy ? to piss them off even more 3) why do your brothers keep shooting missiles at jewish civilians but still you ask for medical help ? because they're still healthy 4) why do you let yourself be put into such a situation by your rulers ? situation is forced on the palestinians by the occupation. thank you
37. Let them get treatment in Cairo.
Hugh ,   Toronto, Canada   (04.02.08)
Since when does a nation have to provide medical care for its enemy? Treatment for prisoners of war is one thing. It's time that the Palestinians used some of the millions in welfare they've received, to build a few hospitals, instead of buying ordnance.

40. Dozens more Gazans would die if not for Israel.
41. Israel must understand that as
Al ,   US   (04.02.08)
long as it's occupying the Palestinians territories it has an obligation to treat all those under its occupation, and that is why Israel needs to end its occupation ASAP to left that burden off its chest!
42. Good! Let's bring the number to thousands per kassam
Andras Bereny ,   Kfar Tapuah, Ephraim   (04.02.08)
43. Who is paying for Arabs?
Alex ,   San Francisco   (04.02.08)
44. No-one's problem but their own
Talula ,   Israel   (04.02.08)
Hamas violently took control of Gaza but still expect a state, that they don't recognize, to care for their sick? I really don't see why we should. Each state should be responsible for their own. Medical care is included in the definition of an independent state or country. The only exception is young sick children. They need to grow up knowing that it was the Israelis that saved their lives, not Hamas, the terrorists. Who were helpless to help them and gave them nothing. Hamas couldn’t give a damn about the Gazans, it was never their intention to care for them and give them a better life. They took over Gaza in order for them to have a launching pad for rockets against us.

46. #41 What occupation?
Talula ,   Israel   (04.02.08)

47. Response to post 46
Al ,   US   (04.02.08)

anon ,   anon   (04.21.08)
Is not this a weird situation? We are their enemy- to murdered no matter what and yet we are to save them?! Hello? aNybody there? Where else does such an expectation exist? Oh yes, the U.S. and Europe offer great health care to Taliban in serious need. I forgot. My apologies.
