Gaza doctor's loss grips Israelis

I first met Dr Izeldeen Abuelaish eight years ago when I made a radio documentary about his extraordinary life and work. A Palestinian obstetrician who specialises in treating infertility, he lives in the Jabaliya camp in the Gaza Strip, but used to work part-time in Israel helping Jewish women to have babies. He also had a clinic in Gaza, taught medical school students there and arranged for seriously ill Palestinian patients to be treated in Israel.

People like Dr. Abulaish

are among the real victims here, NOT Hamas guerrillas, or any other extremists.

Too many people have lost sight of that fact, and are unable or unwilling to see it in its proper perspective.

This man looks past religion and nationality to treat people, unlike these so-called "humanists" on this site who look at Israelis and Jews with disgust. This man has been living in the middle of this nightmare day and and day out and yet he still treated Israeli patients, while these miserable people who call themselves Iranians, who have probably never had an Israeli or a Jew do anything to them in their lives, act as if they are superior while believing Israelis and Jews are a pile of goh that require flushing.


This site is filled with extremists!!

Cant you people see? Militants were obviously shooting fireworks out of that living room into Tel Aviv causing an elderly woman to pee in her pants, exactly at the moment as the doctor left to talk in the phone, then they (Hamas) ran away just as the "Israeli Self defence missile" (Copyright by the Israeli propaganda ministry) hit the living room.

So Hamas killed those children, not Israel. Israel means love and hope and democracy and bla bla bla bla bla bla bla


And yet Israili's supported the war
