The REAL Story Everyone Is Missing With Viral Jewish-Nurse-Breastfeeding-Palestinian-Baby Story

It is a story to warm hearts: the Jewish nurse who breastfed the palestinian boy whose mother was seriously injured in a car crash.

And understandably so. Humanity shining amidst the word’s most intractable conflict. Heck, it would make for a great movie.

A Jewish nurse has won hearts around the world after she was pictured breastfeeding a Palestinian boy whose mother was seriously injured in a car crash.

The heartwarming image showed Ula Ostrowski-Zak caring for the infant, whose father died in the collision in Ein Kerem in central Israel.

She tried for seven hours to get nine-month-old Yaman Abu Ramila to take milk from a bottle before deciding to feed him herself.

She said: ‘His aunts were surprised that a Jew agreed to breastfeed him, but I told them that any mother would do it.

‘I fed him five times. His aunts embraced me and thanked me. They were really surprised.’
The young boy was taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital following the crash with an armoured vehicle.

The story has gone viral, but there is a detail people are missing.

This part:

The young boy was taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital following the crash with an armoured vehicle.

While the breastfeeding part is unique, the fact palestinians are treated in Israeli hospitals every single day is not. It is the norm – despite the dangers to us involved.

So yeah, it might take a case like this for the mainstream media might to acknowledge the humanity of Israelis, but anyone in the know realizes this is the norm, not the exception.
