But then there is Wafa al-Biss, who was caught on Monday trying to bomb the very hospital in Beersheba in southern Israel that had been helping her with her own illness. Who recruited her? She says it was the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, an armed faction with links to the mainstream Palestinian Fatah movement.Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish writes:
As a Palestinian doctor who has worked at Soroka Hospital in Beersheba for eight years, I was outraged at the cynical and potentially deadly suicide bombing attempt by Wafa Biss on Monday. I conduct research at the hospital’s Genetic Institute, and Soroka has become my home away from home. I have built warm and professional relations with my colleagues, and bring medication from Soroka to needy patients in the Strip. On the very day that Wafa Biss planned to detonate her bomb, two palestinians in critical condition were waiting in Gaza to be taken for urgent treatment at Soroka. Biss was sent to kill the very people in Israel who are healing palestinians from the Gaza Strip and West Bank. What if Israeli hospitals now decide to bar Palestinians seeking treatment? How would those who sent Biss feel if their own relatives, in need of medical care in Israel, are refused treatment?
Vampyres, zombies, blood-suckers, and satan’s henchmen will devour their Jewish prey, Doc, whenever and wherever they get a chance. It doesn’t matter if there are innocents in the way.
