Over 100,000 Palestinian Arab patients treated in Israel in 2015 - and the Israelis pay for their treatment

Post by Guest on Sun Mar 05, 2017 4:00 pm

Makor Rishon has a recent article that describes the statistics of Palestinian medical patients in Israel. (I found the statistics online as well from a May 2016 article in Mako.)

In 2015, Israeli hospitals treated over 97,000 Arabs from the West Bank (allowing over 100,000 people to accompany them). In addition, over 31,787 Gaza patients and escorts arrived in 2015.

At any given time there are 60-70 Gazans receiving care at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv alone.

Only 10% of the cost to care for these patients comes from the Palestinian Authority. The rest is paid for by the Israeli taxpayer.

This is while the Palestinian leadership continues to pay full salaries to terrorists and their families. But they can't be bothered to pay for medical care of their regular populace - because the Israelis will.

It is one thing to show compassion and help all people who need help. I'm happy to see sick kids get the help they need, no matter who they are.

It is another thing to be a sucker.

The EU happily pays for illegal schools and homes to be built, willy-nilly, in the West Bank that they know Israel will demolish, but does it pay for actual medical needs of Palestinians being treated in Israel? 

Why should they when they know that Israelis will pay the price? Israel gets next to no media attention for the help it gives to those who want to destroy it, but if Israel would insist on full payment, you can be sure that sob stories will be published by Reuters about how heartless Israelis are for refusing to allow unlimited Palestinian patients.

This is what bugs me. When people unjustly call Israel an Apartheid state or comparable to Nazism. Its nothing short of bullshit and is done to normalize hating Jews. Its making people believe that Israeli's are as bad as the Nazi's and Apartheid South Africa. In order that people can be guilt free in hating Israeli's and by extension Jews. This is why I am so vocal on this issue. As its constantly being spread by the Far Left and Far Right, as well as religious groups. Like I say its fine to be critical of Israel, its policies, acts etc, but to invoke claims to the worst crimes in history. Is disingenuously trying to normalize hating Israel, Israeli's and most of all Jews.
