Israel Helping Iraqi Doctor

Arutz Sheva reports the following:

Ladaat.net reports that a doctor from Iraq is receiving treatment in an Israeli hospital for injuries suffered in a terrorist bombing in his home country.

The doctor, whose eyesight was compromised in the explosion, is being treated at Hadassah Hospital in Ein Karem, Jerusalem, after ZAKA workers responded to a request by an international humanitarian organization to arrange for his stay. The organization turned to ZAKA with the request, because Hadassah is the sole hospital that could perform the surgery the doctor needed.

On Friday, the Interior and Foreign Ministries gave their okay and issued the permit for the doctor to stay in Israel for a month, on condition that ZAKA agreed to take responsibility for his return to Iraq thereafter.

The doctor made his way to the Allenby Bridge into Jordan, where he was transferred to a ZAKA ambulance that took him to Hadasssah.

But don’t be surprised. Last year, a baby Iraqi girl was sent to Israel for heart surgery. And Israel has made it clear that it is willing to aid the Iraqi people where necessary.

Of course, there are those who will see this not as a manifestation of Israel’s commitment to humanitarian causes, but rather part of some Israeli plot vis-a-vis Iraq.
