Jewish state’s unsung humanitarian mission amid slaughter

Since 2013, Israeli doctors and nurses have treated more than 3,000 Syrians wounded in the bloody six-year civil war that has ravaged the country, killed some 400,000 people and caused a refugee crisis throughout Europe.
And, if some top officials in the Jewish state have their way, that’s just a start.

As the fighting heats up and with the recent sarin gas attack that killed more than 100 civilians in mind, not to mention a U.S. Tomahawk missile strike, Israeli hospitals are preparing for many more casualties.

Some of the patients are saying their treatment has changed their minds about Israel.

Dr. Salman Zarka, director of the Ziv Medical Center in the northern Israeli town of Safed and a former colonel in the medical corps who served on the Syrian border, says he “couldn’t then have imagined setting up a humanitarian program for Syrians.” Now his hospital has delivered 19 Syrian babies and sends prescriptions with patients back to their homeland.

“All this makes it more human, more complicated,” Zarka said, adding that he worries about patients he knows on a first name-basis who have returned to Syria.

Israel is now running regular medical rescue missions in response to attacks in Syria. For the more serious injuries, helicopters are dispatched for airlifts.

“We check their breathing, their pulse, their blood pressure – all their vital signs,” Lt. Omri Caspi, a medical officer told the Associated Press. “We take a look at their injuries, we saw the cuts, we checked the chest, the heads, everything, and then we decide which treatment they need.”

In 1967, Israel captured much of the Golan Heights, which had been occupied by Syria, and the mountains provide the Jewish state with a bird’s-eye view of the fighting between Russian, Iranian, Syrian and Hezbollah forces battling ISIS and other anti-Syrian government forces.

Two Syrian patients shared their experiences in Syria and Israel with the Associated Press as soldiers from the Israeli military supervised. The two spoke on condition of anonymity out of fear they or their families would be targeted in Syria if their stay in Israel is made public.

Both young men praised the Israeli people and government while lambasting Bashar Assad and his supporters. They said that as patients have returned to Syria from Israel, word has slowly spread that Israel can help those desperately wounded. The medical care is free of charge. The hospital said it doesn’t discriminate when it comes to admittance, and insists it doesn’t collect personal patient information.

One patient, a 26-year old from Deraa, said he couldn’t find treatment in Syria’s devastated medical sector, so he made his way to Israel, a nation he was raised to hate.

“Back then when there were no incidents in Syria, no revolution, no nothing – the greatest enemy in the world was Israel. It was the first enemy,” he said.

His fellow patient used the pseudonym “Baibars.” A bomb crushed bones in his face, an injury that without medical help festered until he struggled to open his mouth. After 40 days in the Ziv hospital and many surgeries later, the 25-year-old now talks incessantly and even sings about lost love – in addition to praising for Israeli pastries.

“We reached countries that my grandparents did not reach and met good people,” he crooned through a jaw yet to fully healed. From his hospital room, he can see into Syria and counts among his enemies there Assad, Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, but not Israel.

“The regime has used chemical weapons since the beginning of the war,” Baibars says, referring to alleged attacks in East Ghouta and Dharaya.

“We were just trying to defend ourselves. The future of Syria has no Bashar Assad,” Baibars says. “Israel is not the enemy. Bashar is the enemy.”

“The Miracle of Israel,” narrated by the late Leonard Nimoy, reveals the story of the only nation in the history of the world that has maintained a national identity without a homeland – and did it for centuries.

Last week Jewish Home Minister Uri Ariel said he would like to see Israel doing more to aid the afflicted people of Syria.

“After we have all seen the inhuman events in Syria, I would like to say that while the state of Israel should not intervene militarily in Syria, it must lead the treatment of Syrian civilians and refugees and lead on the diplomatic avenue against the murderous Syrian regime,” he said. “We do not have the privilege to ignore this difficult reality, we must lead the world, as those who bear the human flag, as the people chosen by the Holy One, blessed be He.”

Meanwhile, Israel Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon strongly condemned the chemical weapons attack in the Idlib province, calling it “evil incarnate.”

He called on the U.N. Security Council to “use all its authority to put an end to the situation in Syria.”

Netanyahu UN Speech defends Israel vs. Iran

Netanyahu UN Speech defends Israel vs. Iran

Will Bibi’s Words Wake Up the World?

Netanyahu Silence:

And at one point in his speech he stood there and said nothing for 44 seconds.  He had a 44-second moment of silence. 

Rush Limbaugh

UN-Bibi-IsraelRUSH: I mentioned that Netanyahu went to the General Assembly today to address it, and it was powerful.  Half the place walked out.  The American delegation stayed, however.  But half of the UN General Assembly delegation was not in the building.  It’s really amazing.  Netanyahu is a courageous and brave guy.  He said what he said, and he just stared at the Star Wars cantina scene in front of him, which is what the audience at the UN is.  And there was a moment in his speech — his theme was that they were not going to sit in silence any longer when genocidal or wild genocidal regimes nuke up.  It was a direct statement at Iran.  And in the midst of the US and the P5 plus one nations deal with Iran that guarantees them a nuke at some point down the line, could be next month, could be ten years, it’s widely unknown but it’s feared that it’s sooner than later, Netanyahu said we’re not going to sit silent and we’re not going to allow it to happen.

And at one point in his speech he stood there and said nothing for 44 seconds.  He had a 44-second moment of silence. 

His speech excoriating members of the UN General Assembly for supporting the deal with Iran, saying it makes war more likely, but it was during an intense 44-second moment of silence that Netanyahu’s condemnation of the UN was heard loudest.  Netanyahu said that the response from the UN to Iran’s threats against Israel had been utter silence, deafening silence, before staring down the attendees for nearly a minute without saying a word.

Do you know how uncomfortable that makes people?

NETANYAHU:  Last month, Khamenei once again made his genocidal intentions clear before Iran’s top clerical body, the assembly of experts.  He spoke about Israel, home to over six million Jews.  He pledged, “There will be no Israel in 25 years.”  Seventy years after the murder of six million Jews, Iran’s rulers promised to destroy my country, murder my people, and the response from this body, the response from nearly every one of the governments represented here has been absolutely nothing, utter silence, deafening silence.

RUSH:  That is when he allowed 45 seconds to go by without saying a word.  At that moment he stood mute for 45 seconds.  When he resumed speaking…

NETANYAHU:  It’s not easy to oppose something that is embraced by the greatest powers in the world. Believe me, it would be far easier to remain silent.  But throughout our history, the Jewish people have learned the heavy price of silence, and as the prime minister of the Jewish state — as someone who knows that history — I refuse to be silent.

UN: (applause)

moral-relativism3RUSH: People are running around saying, “We just did a deal!  I’m the first president in American history, world history to ever stop the bad guys from getting a nuke! I, Barack Hussein Obama!”

When the fact of the matter is, in order to get them to sign anything he had to promise and assure that they will get a nuke down the road. Yet everybody runs around and applauds deal. “First president ever to stop nuclear proliferation!” It’s just exact opposite, and this is why people have developed such a distrust and an animus toward politics, because it insults people’s intelligence.  And it furthermore becomes clear that the ultimate aim of politics for many is personal glory, personal achievement, personal accolades.

Truth about Israel and Palestine

Leo Hohmann

“Palestine is the name given to the land of Israel by the Romans, who sought to erase the connection of the Jewish people to the Promised Land. It literally means ‘Land of the Philistines,’” says Jonathan Cahn, author of “The Harbinger.”

In other words, the very name, “Palestine” was given to the area as a snub to the Jewish people because the Philistines were their ancient biblical enemy.
