You do not see this in the headlines.:angry:



'........She was already in labour when she went to her local clinic in her home village in Syria - but they told her that they could not treat her.
Her worried husband knew that it was possible to get her treated in Israel ..
She had to be taken to a point inside Syria from where she could be seen by Israeli soldiers patrolling the fence that marks the old ceasefire line between the two countries that dates back decades.
She was the 177th person to make the journey to the emergency room....... '

'Syria and Israel regard each other as enemies. A state of war has existed between them for decades.
And yet, since the first patients arrived around nine months ago, the informal system of patient transfer has become so well-established that some patients have even arrived with letters of referral written by doctors in Syria for their Israeli counterparts.'

'Dr Oscar Embon, the director of the Sieff Hospital, says simply: "Some beautiful relationships have started between the staff at the hospital and the people that we treat. Most of them express their gratitude and their wish for peace between the two countries."
The Israelis say they are treating everyone who needs treatment. That often means women and children but it is possible that among the young men who have been patched up, there may well be fighters loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, or jihadist rebels who in other circumstances would attack Israeli targets if they could.
Dr Embon says that policy of not discriminating between the sick and the hurt is entirely consistent with what he sees as the values of his country and the ethics of his profession.'

People.....Heh!:worthy:

You have to keep the faith.:up:

    Sounds like something they'd do. Like sending doctors, nurses, and medical aid to the Philippines to help in the aftermath of the storm that hit there. The Lame Stream Media doesn't report on that, either. Doesn't fit the agenda. People can get along with each other; governments, not so much.
