Irony: Hamas Sends Patients to Israel for Care


hamasIchilov hospital in Tel Aviv treats up to 100 patients a month from Gaza, and often Hamas takes the role of middleman between Gaza residents and the Israeli hospital, Ichilov Director Professor Gabi Barabash said today. Barabash spoke to Deputy Minister Ayoub Kara, a resident of the Druze village of Dalyat El Carmel near Haifa, who was touring the hospital and viewing its care for foreign Arab patients.

In addition to caring for patients from Gaza, the Ichilov staff treats many citizens of foreign Arab countries, including those that have no diplomatic ties with Israel. They all receive dedicated care, and the relatives who accompany them are provided with free food and a place to stay, Barabash said.

Kara praised the hospital’s care at the end of the tour. Ichilov treats all of its patients equally, he said, but it is not the only one, and hospitals throughout the country send hundreds of people home to Gaza in good health each month after they arrived in Israel suffering from serious ailments. He condemned Hamas for benefiting from the arrangement while giving nothing in return. “The time has come for Hamas to give us something small in return,” he said, “to release a single son of ours, who has been held for four years with no medical care, in exchange for the hundreds of people whose lives Israel saves every month.”

  1. for all the accusations of genocide against the arabs in Gaza, Israelis sure are doing a very poor job of it! imagine a Jew showing up at an arab hospital, think he’d get out alive?

  2. That’s what called, ‘helping and abetting an enemy’. The world is truly in dire straits if the a Government is collaborating with its archenemy and giving it medical assistance.

  3. WOW, and then these now healthy patients go back to Gaza, and put on a “life vest” .. go back to occupied Palestine, and KABOOM and who know how many yiddishe korbunot
    thanks Israel – heal thy enemy and pull your citizens by their peyos
    what a country
