Amazing Clips

Here you will find amazing film clips from almost one hundred years of 20th Century Jewish history, including images and testimony from Eichmann’s trial. It is a reminder that, while the Jews wanted Israel as an escape from bloodshed and tyranny, the Palestinians joyfully imagine their lands awash in a sea of blood.Hat tip: Crossing the Rubicon

UPDATE: More on the blood Palestinians long to have on their hands. And if you click over to this last link, remember Golda Meir: “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.” Source: http://bookwormroom.wordpress.com/2007/12/13/footage-of-jewish-history/

Palestinians brought problems on themselves

Jacob Amir: Palestinians brought problems on themselves
A letter to the editor — 12/07/2007 10:07 am

Dear Editor: The authors of the column “Jews need to speak out on abuse of Palestinians” blame Israel for the difficulties facing the residents of Gaza.

One wonders if the authors can imagine what would have happened if, immediately after Israel left the Gaza Strip, all terror activity from there ceased. Which means no rocket launching, no weapons smuggling, no efforts to bomb the border crossing points, no efforts to send suicide murderers into Israel.

Then all the crossing points would have remained open, there would have been free merchandise exchange, thousands of Gazans would have been able to work in Israel, and it would have been possible to travel between the West Bank and Gaza. The Gazan economy would have been much stronger, and the daily life of the citizens would have been much better.

The authors do not tell us that the Palestinians chose to continue with their war of terror. As a result they brought nothing but disaster on their people. They infiltrated into Israel, killing two soldiers and abducting a third. In the last two years, since Israel left the Gaza Strip to the last inch, more than 2,000 Kasam rockets have been fired at Israeli villages and towns.

Like any other country Israel will do its best to protect its citizens.

For many Palestinians, the ongoing fighting between Hamas in the Gaza strip and Fatah in the West Bank has created a far more serious problem: The lack of proper medical care.

Palestinian hospitals refer many of their patients to Israeli hospitals, where they can receive better treatment; but in many cases, even those who are able to get the necessary permission to cross over to Israel to receive treatment find themselves being turned down. The reason – the Israeli hospitals can no longer bill the Palestinian government for their treatment.

Full Story

The hospitals’ administrators find themselves – as do the patients’ families – going back and forth between Gaza and Ramallah trying to find their way through the bureaucratic maze.

The end result is almost always the same: The Palestinian government in Ramallah makes the necessary monetary arrangements, but only exhausting everyone involved.

PA’s indifference
A. and his sister, from Gaza, came to the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center in order to be treated for cancer.

“The administrator in Gaza thought he could get away with giving her a referral just for a diagnosis. The Israeli staff saw right through that and told us the treatment requires a different kind of coverage.

“The administrator here sent Gaza dozens of faxes every day until Ramallah said they would pay for it… you see the Israeli staff’s dedication and concern and on the other hand, the Palestinians’ indifference and you can’t understand how your own people completely ignore you and you supposed enemy bends over backwards to see that you get everything you need,” said A.

Another problem deriving from this situation is that the permits given to the patients immediate family – or anyone else that chooses to accompany them to Israel – are reduced to the hospital’s vicinity only. “We literally can’t leave the premises,” M., a Palestinian who is staying with a sick relative in the Tel Aviv medical center, told Ynet.

“Instead of making this process as quick as possible, they (Hamas and Fatah) take their time in fighting each other…we don’t really exist as far as they’re concerned. God will avenge all of them for all our suffering,” he added.

Aviva Shemer, spokesperson for the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, told Ynet that the hospital “does all it can to allow the Palestinian population access to the best possible medical care. We usually get the Palestinian Authority’s full cooperation.”
