When Your Doctor is a Muslim: Medical Terrorism Comes to America
By Debbie Schlussel
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.
Where the hell was Junior when all this was going on? Was he plotting a lawsuit in advance?
Hmmmm. I’d like a little direct evidence. I think people of all religions are ignored to death in hospital ER’s all the time.
It’s time that it was a HATE CRIME.
Permanent medical license revocation as a minumum.
Jail would be preferrable.
well you’ll NEVER see this on any media...unless we get it to oreilly, he would be the only one to investigate and report it
Medical terrorism has come to America. And I’ll bet this wasn’t the first time it’s happened, or the last.
I am sorry,but how did this man end up with a Muslim doctor in the first place? Didnt he have a right to choose his doctor?
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?
He might be sent to rehab for daring to say it.
He was an emergency patient. He never saw the doctor who was
assigned to treat him.
The filing is here. There are 15 individual doctors named. This appears to be a bit of a stretch. 15
The real question is why are we allowing any third world scab MD’s in?
Why not increase American med schools so that Americans don’t have to learn overseas.
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.
Powerful video. Thanks for the link.
I know of no hospital that lets you pick your doctor when you get admitted unless your doctor is on staff
I like Schlussel, but something is wrong with this story. They are “looking” for any attorney” In Chicago?? If there is something to this case, they will be lining up to take it on a contingency.
