MUST WATCH: Even UN Television Cannot Deny The Truth About Israel’s Humanity!

This next report was created by the UN – so at times a bit of the anti Israel bias peeks out – but there are certain stories where no matter hard you try, Israel’s humanity shines through.

It’s enough to make a grown man Israel hater cry.

  1. *SIGH* Even when reporting on the medical assistance that Israel provides to Palestinians and others the story stinks of bias. Statements like ” a rare example of Palestinian and Israeli cooperation” yet then go on to say more than half the children are Palestinian. This is just ONE example of Israeli Dr’s saving palestinian children’s lives. It is a very common occurrence but the UN grudgingly covers the story whilst being very careful to try and give credit to everyone BUT Israel for the programs.

    1. And how about describing the “terrible indignity” of the father being made to get out of the car at the hospital even though they later point out that, as with most Israeli hospitals, the operating theaters are underground because of rockets. And the way they not so subtly suggest that it’s Israel’s fault that there are no similar hospitals in Palestenian territories.

        1. There is an intentional avoidance of covering these stories. In January, Dr Qanta Ahmed, an amazing Physician and Muslim woman, wrote in the Spectator how she was “stitched up” on an Australian program, I think it was Weekend Sunrise on channel 7. She was interviewed about just such a program in Israel, which she learned about and has been helping to fund and run.
          Here is a link

          So she was upset because although the interview was very positive and covered one of these many truly humanitarian medical programs in Israel. But when she later got sent the piece, they superimposed images of destruction in Gaza over the interview. There were many commentators sympathizing with art Ahmed and being outraged at the bias inserted into the story. Then one of the presenters, Andrew O’Keefe commented that he was most disappointed that Dr Ahmed criticized them in public and that her criticisms weren’t justified. Many commenters, including myself, replied to him why she was justified, how those images were extremely damaging, and how they even endangered her work and her life, being a Muslim woman speaking up for Israel. Eventually Andrew O’Keefe became irate at being attacked and the truth finally came out, he wrote something to the effect of “look, no other network would touch this story” and how they were oh so brave to interview such a controversial person on such a controversial subject.

    2. I agree with your comment and Inessa’s (plus the totally gratuitous footage from Gaza and how the conflict is affecting the health of Gazans).

      Nevertheless, it was still a good piece overall… and at least they DID say WHY the ORs are all underground.

      1. The problem, as usual, is that the Palestenians are presented as helpless, child-like victims, who are not being held responsible for anything. Whatever befalls them, it’s Israel’s fault. No matter Israel’s unbelievable humanitarian actions, they are blamed for putting the helpless Palestenians in their predicament. There was the clear implication that Israel prevents Palestenians from accessing medical care, both in Israel and in Palestenian territories. Where else are there aid workers helping the refugees, precisely where these so called refugees intend to live? I recently spoke to someone whose Russian mother has found herself isolated in a Ukranian town in the middle of the conflict. Apparently, the law states that to apply for refugee status to then apply to leave, she first needs to leave her home and her town. Usually refugees become refugees because they have to flee or leave. On the other hand they say “but in Palestine and Israel…” implying that Palestine refers not to the Palestenian territories (which are called the territories occupied by Israel) but as some continuum of Palestine to Israel, as if it isn’t clear which part is really Israel.
        There is no mention of any other Middle Eastern country helping the helpless Palestenians – does Israel somehow prevent Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon etc from having good medical care?
        This is beyond the occasional biased comments, this is a case of all their reporting being infected and diseased with bias.

  2. The UN and the Palestenians need to be clear that they are in a situation where they should be careful what they ask for: if Palestine becomes a state, especially if they conduct themselves as an enemy state which doesn’t recognise Israel as a Jewish state etc, they may just find it harder to get access to medical care in Israel, not easier. And Israel should learn to be more street smart – what they are doing is wonderful, as is their breathtakingly humanitarian treatment of injured Syrians or Palestenians from Gaza even during the conflict. But honestly, why should all this be unconditional – why can’t they insist on these stories being reported and why can’t they make demands on the PA to promote these stories?

    1. That’s why Palestinians don’t WANT a state.

      At the moment they have the best of both worlds (the leadership, at any rate). They get international recognition and vast amounts of aid money, without actually having to take care of the nitty-gritty of running a country. They can skim off the money and any suffering on the part of the people they’re supposedly governing can be blamed on Israel.

      1. I know. Israel’s supporters and advocates would do well to constantly call them out on this. If you want your self determination and your state, start using your own skills and resources, or at least your Arab brothers’. You have money for weapons and rockets, work your priorities out to spend money on medical care. Israel needs to make it clear to the world that it has absolutely no obligation to continue to act as a charitable organization, while copping abuse instead of praise.

  3. The other thing that is assumed is that all Palestenians are terribly poor – the story mentioned that these surgeries are paid for by aid agencies. It should be mentioned that many Palestenians probably could afford medical care, but they are not even asked to pay anything at all. If I came from Australia to have one of Israel’s innovative orthopedic surgeries, I would have to pay about $20000, much more for heart surgery. In the meantime, Israelis have to pay for medical treatment, or to pay heftily for medical insurance. Not only that, Israelis have to contribute in other ways; my mother in law was having a knee replacement. She had to donate 2 units of blood before the surgery, even though it was unlikely that she would require a transfusion (and she didn’t). As she has other medical conditions which do not allow her to donate (or for her blood to be used), she had to pay two people to donate on her behalf. The donated blood wasn’t even used for her. Can you imagine if an Israeli hospital asked the parents of the Palestenian baby to donate blood? There would be stories of Jews demanding Palestenian blood to cook into matza.

  4. Instead of treating all the “palestinians” for free, I think that the frozen tax money should have been turned over to the hospitals to cover the PA’s debts (at least part of them) and Abbas told to build their own hospitals with the aid money he has!!! Also, Israel ought to make much more of a big deal of all the free medical care she gives to “palestinians” all over the country, 24/7, 365 days a year and the hell with modesty!!
