“We treat patients regardless of religion, race, nationality, and give the best care we can provide,” Ziv Director, Dr. Oscar Embon, explains.
"For me, they are human beings in need of treatment. I’m not thinking of them as enemies. I’m glad as a physician that we have the opportunity to exercise humanistic principles. I’m very glad to be able to do what we’re taught to do.
"...Because of the critical condition in which many of them arrive, we don’t question who they are. It is irrelevant. They are patients and are treated with the best measures we have in the hospital. Everyone gets the same treatment.
"One of our raisons d’être is not only to treat the civilian population here but everyone who needs trauma treatment in the area."
Israel’s Health Ministry and Defense Ministry have agreed to jointly fund the hospital treatment for Syrians.
Where else in the world, my friends, would we encounter this attitude?
