‘Send her to Gaza’: Belgian doctor denies help to Jewish 90yo woman with fractured rib
Russia Today ^ | 1 Aug 2014

Posted on 08/01/2014 5:41:18 PM PDT by mandaladon

A doctor in Belgium has refused medical help to a 90-year-old Jewish woman with a fractured rib, saying that she needs to be sent to Gaza to “get rid of” the sharp pain she is suffering.

“I’m not coming,” the physician said and hung up after receiving the call at 11pm Wednesday.

Bertha Klein, 90, had a fractured rib and was suffering from “agonizing pain.” She had her son, an American citizen, call the doctor via Flanders medical hotline and ask for help on her behalf.

“Send her to Gaza for a few hours, then she will get rid of the pain,” the doctor told the man, as he called back for clarifications, according to local Joods Actueel newspaper. The paper said that the doctor knew right away that it was a Jewish patient's name, and he heard an accent, which might have predetermined his reaction.

The family then called a friend, Samuel Markowitz, who is an alderman of the Antwerp District Council and a volunteer paramedic.

He also called back the doctor and confronted the doctor with his statements. Markowitz managed to record their conversation.

Hershy Taffel, Bertha Klein’s grandson, filed a discrimination complaint with the police.

Jewish communities around the world have been facing upswing in anti-Semitic incidents, including physical assaults, firebombing of synagogues and calls for violence against Israelis, after the latest Israeli-Hamas conflict. ....................Muslims seem to be getting a lot of sympathy lately.

Hatred of Jews has always baffled me. My theory is that many are jealous of the strong family unit that produces wealth through a strong work ethic. I think Jackie Mason said... A Jewish mother dreams that her son will be a Doctor or, if retarded, a lawyer.

No. It's just part of a centuries old tradition of blood libel. By now it's in their DNA.

The world has taken a trip through the looking glass. Up is down, evil is good, warped is respected. Hamas USES their children as WEAPONS people! This is not that hard to understand (unless you have a predisposition against Jews, I guess).

The hatred of the Jews probably stems from the fact that G_d called them his chosen.

A doctor who says this to anyone, Jewish or Gentile, has broken his/her oath, deserves to lose his/her license and be banned from the practice of medicine. (Goes for nurses too.)

The Dr. does not have a heart. As much as I despise Muslims, if I were a Dr. and a 90 year old Muslim woman was injured, I would not hesitate to treat her and treat her as well as I could.

Jews have always been viewed as wealthy banker types, which is somewhat true....they also are heavily into medicine and law......

that is the way it was in Germany prior to WW2.....Jews meant the wealthy...

and in our country, lets be honest...Jews do run Hollywood and a lot of the media....

sadly too, there have been a number of Jews in America who have gone out of their way to attack Christian traditions such as Christmas nativity scenes....

this story btw is a little funny...how did they know the lady had a "broken rib"?...she had to have been xrayed at some time....

there is not much to be done for a broken rib except rest and pain control....and I'm surprised that someone waited til 1100 pm at night to call for a drs help......

to the main topic, yes, its like pre ww2 all over again....except this time, we Christians will be targeted...

Oh, come on...there are offensive people in all groups. Jews, as a rule, don’t fear nativity scenes or, in my case, agnostics.

I don’t really know much about the Mossad but I have read that they like to use .22LR weapons for assassinations.

They have also screwed up a few times.

I remember an interview maybe 30 years ago with the retired director of the CIA. The interviewer asked him which was the best Intelligence service? Was it the CIA, the KGB or the Israeli one.

His answer surprised me. He said it was none of the above. He said the best intelligence agency was British Intelligence.

I submit that they were wealthy due to their work ethic. They make lazy people jealous.

Chill out. This isn’t a political story. It does reflect the Jew hatred around the globe.

This ****ing doctor ought to go to Gaza. He’ll be pissing his little shorts and hiding behind the IDF begging them to protect his worthless hide.

Many if the comments are sickening.

Yes, very disturbing for what they tell us about the state of affairs in Europe.

I hope the non Jews (Muslims excepted) in the USA have the balls to stand up and be counted when (not if) this perversity happens here.

Sadly, according to a very good Jewish friend of 44 years, a large percentage of US Jewry has no clue. She says it's like the younger ones have no sense of self preservation. Although plenty in my age bracket (60s) seem to be just as brain dead.

Nonetheless, if it comes to it, we cannot allow leftist pogroms against Jews and Christians. It must be stopped in no uncertain terms.

I understand the Mob also uses 22LR for assassinations — not so much noise and the bullet caroms around inside the skull, apparently.

“We Christians will be targeted.”
Unlike the Jews in the early 40’s,we are armed and dangerous.

It was the Hebrews who brought the concept of Yahweh into the world. Someone downstairs must have a problem with that.

I think it would be more accurate to ascribe that antipathy to libs and atheists than Jews, although they include Jews.

“As much as I despise Muslims, if I were a Dr. and a 90 year old Muslim woman was injured, I would not hesitate to treat her and treat her as well as I could.”

There’s a long tradition of US military medical personnel treating the wounded of the enemy.
