When Your Doctor is a Muslim: Medical Terrorism Comes to America (Muslim doctor lets Jewish man die)

When Your Doctor is a Muslim: Medical Terrorism Comes to America

By Debbie Schlussel

www.debbieschlussel.com

May 17, 2007

Sometimes--so many times--diversity is not what it's cracked up to be.

Just ask Joseph Applebaum. Well, you could ask him. But you won't get an answer. He's dead. And he's dead because he was a Jew, and his doctor is a Muslim and grad of "Ayman Al-Zawahiri" Medical School.

But Applebaum wasn't denied treatment for being a Jew in Egypt. Or elsewhere in the Muslim world. It happened right here on U.S. soil. In Chicago.

As Muslim doctors continue to flood into the country under lax immigration laws, hospitals around the country have acquired their fair share of them. Many hospitals in the Detroit area are now dominated by Muslim doctors and have been for some time.

But even in hospitals where they do not predominate, Muslim doctors are starting to demonstrate behavior toward non-Muslim patients that is beyond alarming.

On December 1, 2003, Joe Applebaum was admitted to Rush North Shore Medical Center, a major hospital in Chicago. He was stricken with an acute (or distended) abdomen--a swelling of the stomach that is easily diagnosed and treated. But it was never treated by anyone at the hospital. For 12 hours, Joe Applebaum was left alone--left to die, which he did the next day.

A Jewish man, he was identified as a Jew on the front page of his medical chart. The chief resident doctor assigned to treat Mr. Applebaum, Osama Ahmed Ibrahim, MD, sure noticed the religious notation on Applebaum's chart. And it appears that this is why he never once checked or examined this emergency patient, Mr. Applebaum, and left him to die. When another doctor at the hospital finally examined Mr. Applebaum--not his assigned doctor, Dr. Ibrahim, he told Applebaum's son, Michael, to say good-bye to his father because he was about to die.

Dr. Ibrahim, is a Muslim from Birmingham, England--a hotbed of Islamic radicalism and terror planning. It is breeding ground for anti-Semitic hate. He is a graduate of Ain Shams University Medical School in Egypt. This extremist school is also the alma mater of Al-Qaeda mastermind and number two, Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri. Zawahiri's father--a Muslim Brotherhood enthusiast--also taught at the University.

Other Ain Shams grads and faculty members include:

* late HAMAS leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin; * Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Mahdi Akef;

* LAX terrorist shooter Hesham Mohamed Hedayet;

* Extremist Canadian Imam, Aly Hindy; and

* Co-leader of Yemen's extremist Al-Islah Party, Abdul Majeed Al-Zindani.

Why did Dr. Ibrahim neglect a patient who came in with an easily treatable condition and leave him to die, 12 hours later? It appears it can only be because he did not want to treat a Jewish patient and let him live. There can be no other reason.

Mr. Applebaum's son, Michael, is a medical doctor and an attorney. While he was waiting for Dr. Ibrahim to see his father, he called Dr. Ibrahim and alerted him to the growingly severe condition his father was in and that his father was suffering from an acute abdomen. Dr. Ibrahim claimed he examined Mr. Applebaum. But that was a lie. He'd never seen him.

And he essentially murdered him by denying treatment. It's a case of extreme negligence and medical malpractice for the apparent purpose of anti-Semitic murder.

Joseph Applebaum's son Michael is now suing Dr. Ibrahim, the hospital--Rush North Shore Medical Center, and others involved in his father's murder. The case is filed in Illinois, and he is looking for a good attorney to pursue the case he has filed. If you are interested or can help, please contact him at the website he set up to document this ongoing tragedy.

This isn't the only case where a Muslim doctor deliberately let his Jewish patient die, it is just the first that we know of. And it likely won't be the last.

Muslim doctors--especially those from foreign medical schools deep in the world of anti-Semitic, anti-American hate; but many from here, too--have backgrounds that are incompatible with the basic level of care that is required and expected in America. Sadly, no-one is vetting them out of our healthcare system. And no-one will.

But we know that there are many doctors who've been at the forefront of taking lives--not saving them--in the name of the "Religion of Peace":

* Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri--Al-Qaeda mastermind and number two man, reportedly a surgeon and/or psychiatrist; * Dr. Mohammad Rabi Al-Zawahiri--Ayman's father and a Muslim Brotherhood enthusiast, pharmacologist and professor at Ain Shams Medical School;

* Dr. "Abu Hafiza"--Al-Qaeda master planner who was the brains and commander of the Moroccan cell that provided logistics for the 9/11 attacks, and he recruited Qaeda insurgents for battles in Fallujah, Moroccan psychiatrist;

* Dr. Abdel Aziz Al-Rantisi--Late HAMAS leader, pediatrician;

* Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahar--HAMAS co-founder and leader, surgeon and lecturer at the Islamic University in Gaza;

* Dr. Fathi Abd Al-Aziz Shiqaqi--Late founder of Islamic Jihad and active in Fatah, physician.

And there are other issues, such as infectious disease. We are no seeing cases in Britain in which some Muslim doctors refuse to wash their hands with alcohol-based disinfectant, per the Muslim prohibition on alcohol consumption.

In New Jersey, Dr. Ahmed Rashed, a Muslim Arab resident, severed and stole the hand of a cadaver as a gift for a stripper. Such little respect for life from a religion now very much participating in a profession that takes an oath to do no harm and to preserve patient's lives. Not only did he get a slap on the hand--no jail time and, likely, no criminal record--but he currently has a job practicing medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in New York. The real Maimonides--a legendary, brilliant Jewish doctor, rabbi, and religious scholar--is turning over in his grave.

Perhaps, Dr. Applebaum's suit against Rush North Shore Medical Center will make hospitals think twice before they hire Muslim doctors inclined to practice Medical terrorism against their patients. Today, the victim is a Jew, solely because he is Jewish. But tomorrow, it will be a Christian, solely because he/she is a Christian. Or some other non-Muslim victim, solely because he/she is a non-Muslim victim.

Can we afford to have doctors in America whose allegiance to their patients is far less than their allegiance to an extreme observance of a religion of hate? If they cannot and will not tender care, they should not be licensed to practice medicine in the United States.

Like I said, Maimonides is turning over in his grave. Joseph Applebaum, *Zichrono LiVrachah--Blessed Be His Memory.

This happens all the time. It is ignored. It is not a hate crime.
Reporting a Moslem beheading a Christian or Jew in America is the 'hate crime', it seems.

If a Christian, Buddhist or Jew went to a hospital and a Muslim doctor was going to treat them and the patent insisted on another doctor, would that be racial prejudice or good common sense?

Not in the ER... You take what you get. I was admitted to the ER with blood pressure of 209/129, and it was a couple of hours before I ever saw a Dr. I guess since I wasn't having chest pain, they just got to me when the critical cases had been served.

A lot's wrong with it. Rush North Shore Medical Center is the former Skokie Valley Community Hospital, in Skokie, IL. A muslim doctor unwilling to treat Jewish patients wouldn't last there. As you'll note from the link upthread, 15 doctors being sued, a number with Jewish sounding surnames, one muslim, thus Debbies charge.

And if there's a there there, it's not difficult to find a malpractice attorney, or any attorney, on Chicago's north shore.

I doubt that a Muslim doctor would tell anyone about refusing to treat Jewish patients. Debbie’s focus is on the Muslim doctor because he was the chief resident doctor assigned to treat Joseph Applebaum. Maybe he just forgot or was busy taking a prayer break.

"Rush North Shore Medical Center is the former Skokie Valley Community Hospital, in Skokie, IL."

A few years back my MIL was in that ER. There was a middle-aged white woman, likely having a stroke (disoriented, right side weakness),and they has her SITTING IN THE WAITING room for 45 minutes while they processed people heard of her at the intake window. Her family was going nuts when I left.

Based on what I saw, the place is staffed by equal-opportunity incompetents.

I am not buying into this. This is CLEARLY a nursing issue. Any patient who was not seen by anyone at the hospital.. died as a result of nursing neglect. If he had been checked by nurses, an emergency physician could have treated him regardless of what the Muslim Dr. did or did not do, period.

Truth and honesty counts.

Islam, and its believers, are antithetical to American society.

“Mr. Applebaum’s son, Michael, is a medical doctor and an attorney.”

Did I read this right? We’re supposed to believe that this Dr/lawyer allowed his father to wait 12 hours in an emergency room seeing the condition he was in?
There’s something fishy about this story

Many years ago, the ambulance company I worked for sent my partner and me to a patient’s room in Palisades General Hospital to render aid to one of their patients and remove him to the emergency department of another facility. Dr. Applebaum, supposedly watching this happen, was capable of persuading another physician to treat his father, or at least arranging an emergency transfer to another facility since this one was not caring for his father’s condition. He did not do so. There is more to this story than given in this article.

Palisades General, known as the Stairway to Heaven, closed a couple of years after that incident.

Foreign physicians from Muslim countries have been working in the US in increasing numbers over several decades. The root cause of the phenomenon is that the US can't attract its best and brightest into the medical profession as it once did. And that, in turn, is because of pervasive and ever-expanding interference in the physician's practice coming from government and HMOs and other "third party" payers. The bright young American men or women who in previous years, not all that long ago, would have been attracted to medicine as a profession, often choose alternative career paths to earn a better living with less hassles and more respect and independence. The vacuum created is filled by inferior foreign-trained immigrant physicians.

Frankly, it's hardly a surprise that a tragic incident as described by Debbie Schlussel has occurred. It's probably not the first and almost surely not the last. It's an inevitable result of the social and demographic problems afflicting the medical profession and many others, and government policy is largely to blame.

He was stricken with an acute (or distended) abdomen--a swelling of the stomach that is easily diagnosed and treated

Any MDs out there who can tell us what this is? Ruptured bowel? Infection? Reaction to medications?

My abdomen is "distended" every Thanksgiving Day but I never considered it life threatening.

I am not buying into this. This is CLEARLY a nursing issue. Any patient who was not seen by anyone at the hospital.. died as a result of nursing neglect.

When I was in medical school on one of my internal medicine rotations, my medical team got a call from one of the nurses in the fancy, high-priced wing of the medical center to tell us that our patient, Mrs. Gonzalez, had not been seen by any doctor on our team for the entire week she had been there?

Who?!?!?

We had never heard of Mrs. Gonzalez.

It turned out that Mrs. Gonzalez was a rich, foreign patient that had made arrangements to be worked up at the fancy wing of the University medical center and had flown to the U.S. for that purpose. She was tucked in to her fancy room, served three fancy meals per day and nursing never notified us that she was supposed to be on our service.

For that first week, Mrs. Gonzalez patiently waited, without complaining, for her American doctors to show up.

We, oblivious to her existence, never did.
