As Israeli hospitals continue to save the lives of escalating numbers of wounded Syrians, the annual assembly of the UN World Health Organization voted by 104 to 4, with 6 abstentions, on May 20, 2015, to condemn Israel regarding “health conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory, including east Jerusalem, and in the occupied Syrian Golan.”
Voting against the resolution were Australia, Canada, Israel, and the U.S. Countries voting to condemn Israel included China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, and Britain.
The UN should single out Israel because if you walk into any Israeli hospital or clinic, you will see it replete with Palestinians receiving world-class medical treatment.
The UN should single out Israel because its doctors have created the “Save A Child’s Heart” program, which has provided life-saving cardiac surgery to more than 3,400 children from 48 countries. About half the patients are Muslims from the West Bank, Gaza and other Arab countries.
The UN should single out Israel because it was a world leader in responding to the deadly earthquake in Nepal, sending a 260-member army team of medics and search and rescue experts who treated 1,600 victims. (UN Watch)
