  • Elder of Ziyon
From Joods Actueel:

A Flemish doctor, who was manning the telephones Wednesday night for a group of physicians, refused to provide a 90-year-old Jewish woman who had suffered a rib fracture with medical help. "I will not! Send her to Gaza for a few hours, then she will not feel pain anymore," was his reply.

The son of the 90-year-old Bertha Klein called the doctor hotline around 11:00 PM yesterday. His mother was in agonizing pain after she had suffered a rib fracture. The doctor knew very quickly that it was a Jewish patient, her name and address in Antwerp betrayed all that, as well as the accent (Klein is American).

When the family asked if the doctor could come to help with her terrible pain, he replied bluntly, "I will not," and hung up the phone. The family called back immediately, and the doctor said, "Send her to the Gaza Strip for several hours, she will not feel pain then."

The family was in shock and meanwhile phoned a friend, Samuel Markowitz, a district councilor in Antwerp for the Open VLD. Markowitz is also an EMT and knows that a physician should never refuse a patient. He called th hotline himself and confronted the doctor with his statements (the conversation was also recorded for later proof).

The doctor admitted the facts and said that he said this in "a fit of emotion." Markowitz complained to the head of the Department of Health for the Antwerp region, while the grandson of the 90-year-old woman, Hershy Taffel, registered a complaint with the police for racism and xenophobia.

Mr. Taffel tells how his grandmother burst into tears. "This reminds me of what we underwent in Europe 70 years ago, I never thought that day would ever be repeated."
There have been a series of antisemitic incidents in Belgium lately:
Michael Freilich, the editor-in-chief of Joods Actueel, said the incident is particularly alarming because it comes amid a string of incidents that have occurred since the start of Israel’s attack on Hamas in Gaza on July 8 and that involve boycotts against Jews in Belgium.

Among the other incidents: an Orthodox Jewish woman was refused service at a clothes store in Antwerp, and police removed a sign in French and Turkish from a café near Liege that said dogs were allowed but Zionists and Jews were not.
