Arab doctors working for Israel’s health system are suspected of having declined to treat the Jewish victims of a stabbing attack that took place outside the clinic, Israel’s Channel 2 News reported on Thursday.

The attack occurred in the Old City of Jerusalem, right near a Clalit Health Services facility on October 3.

It was carried out by 19-year-old Mohammad Halabi, who murdered Rabbi Nehemia Lavi (41) and Aharon Banita-Bennett (22), and wounded Bennett’s wife, Odele, and their two-year-old son, Natan.

The suspicion that the doctors stood idly by as Bennet and Lavi lay dying in the street, despite being fully capable of providing crucial medical assistance, has given rise to a comprehensive probe into the clinic’s conduct at the time of the attack by Israeli Health Minister Yaakov Litzman.

If the suspicions prove to be true, Litzman says, those who refused to treat to Bennett and Lavi should be brought to justice.

According to Channel 2 News, the clinic was open at the time of the attack. Though designated for the service of east Jerusalem’s Arab residents, its staff is required to provide medical help to any patient in need.

    let’s see what that investigation reveals. BUT, pending that, it should be noted that the surname of the terrorist is “halabi.”

    and, ladies and gentlemen, what does that name tell us? it tells us that the family of his father (at least) comes from aleppo, syria. that is, our “palestinian” is not a palestinian.

    why is this important? because there is no authentic, ancient palestinian Arab nationality; the non-Jewish population, to a considerable degree, is not indigenous; they are recent migrants to the Holy Land, from syria, from the balkans, from the maghreb, etc. (and, the indigenous Arab population never conceived of itself has having a distinctive “palestinian” nationality until the Jewish settlement in the land.) of course, the “palestinians” have fabricated and, perhaps, now believe the fictions of their purportedly long history in the land.

    (and, the “palestinians” object to Jews living in the Jewish Homeland, the land to which the Jews hold the title deed, proved by the Bible and by archaeology, and have lived there for thousands of years, long before the Muslim conquest.)

    bottom line: for the Muslims, the Jews have no history in the land and can never live in Israel, while Muslims, Arab and non-Arab, are all indigenous and have lived in the land forever. (one of the professional liars of the p.a. has ridiculously declared that he is descended from “jebusites,” while, in fact, he’s from a nomadic tribe that inhabits the desert in the north of Saudi Arabia. no lie is too big.)
