Where Is the Outcry Against Arab Apartheid? - Khaled Abu Toameh (Hudson Institute-New York)

Mohammed Nabil Taha, an 11-year-old Palestinian boy, died this week at the entrance to a Lebanese hospital after doctors refused to help him because his family could not afford to pay for medical treatment.

This tragic case highlights the plight of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who live in Lebanon and who are the victims of an apartheid system that denies them access to work, education and medical care.

Ironically, the boy's death coincided with Israel Apartheid Week, a festival of hatred and incitement organized by anti-Israel activists on university campuses in the U.S., Canada and other countries.

And this is happening at a time when tens of thousands of Palestinian patients continue to benefit from treatment in Israeli hospitals.

  • Last year alone, some 180,000 Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza entered Israel to receive medical treatment. Many were treated despite the fact that they did not have enough money to cover the bill.
  • In Israel, even a suicide bomber who is - only - wounded while trying to kill Jews is entitled to the finest medical treatment.
