JNS.org – French Minister of Health Marisol Touraine visited Israel this week in an effort to learn from the Jewish state’s medical expertise on treating victims of terror attacks.

Touraine visited Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center on Thursday and met with her Israeli counterpart, Health Minister Yaakov Litzman. France needs to “think about the best way to prepare our hospitals in case of new attacks,” especially given her country’s “dramatic terror attack at the end of last year,” Touraine said in reference to the six coordinated Islamist shootings that killed 130 people in Paris last November.

Touraine also expressed her desire for greater cooperation between France and Israel, so that France can “learn from the Israeli experience,” the Associated Press reported.

    Another field in which Israel sadly excels……treating terror victims of Palestinian “peace partners”.

    Hypocritical bastards! – Ironic, huh? – The French are asking Israel how to treat victims of their peace partners, who enjoy massive French support.

    I hope the French have learned a lesson from the experience of Israel, in her fight against Islamic terrorism.

    Time for France to support the Jewish state fully.

    Such a visit is welcome. I am certain that Health Minister Litzman will do whatever he can to help his French counterpart.
