Times of Israel reported a heartwarming story this week:

A Palestinian Authority official has donated tens of thousands of shekels to the Rambam Medical Center after receiving life-saving treatment at the Haifa-area hospital, the hospital said.

According to a statement from Rambam, the unnamed PA official made a financial contribution to help hospitalized kids in an effort “to build peace through medicine.”

The official, who chose to remain anonymous, was hospitalized at Rambam earlier this year for cancer treatment and said he was motivated to donate after witnessing the coexistence in practice.

“When I arrived at Rambam, I saw a medical team that treats its patients with dedication, but I also saw the suffering of sick children,” he said according to the statement. “Palestinian children, Israelis, Syrians, and children from other countries who are being treated at Rambam for serious illnesses and are in need of all the help they can get.”

His donation will go toward building a kids’ playroom in the Institute of Radiology of the Joseph Fishman Oncology Center.

“I decided to make a donation to help save human lives apart from any political considerations,” he said.

“Both Israeli and Palestinian societies suffer from violence and I am striving for a situation where we all can contribute to peace and health: to treat children, save lives, share knowledge, and train Palestinian doctors at Rambam, in order to improve the state of the health systems and the capacity to treat people in the PA areas, and to encourage others to donate and contribute to the betterment of health within our two nations.”

“Medicine is a bridge between peoples and my hope is that with the help of this small contribution and others like it in the future, we will all see a better tomorrow,” the official added.
This is a wonderful story that shows that  Palestinian Arabs can appreciate how at least some Israelis treat them.

But there is one problem.

The official chooses to remain anonymous.

Instead of telling his people that he is making this donation out of appreciation and in the interests of bringing peace, he is staying silent.

Because his career and reputation would be over if his Arab neighbors knew that he donated a sizable sum of money to a "Zionist" hospital.

In fact, chances are such a move would result in death threats.

Later, official PA media named the supposed official and denied the story altogether!

The government Thursday denied media reports that a senior Palestinian official donated money to a non-Palestinian hospital.
Government spokesman Yousef al-Mahmoud rejected claims that Deputy Prime Minister Ziad Abu Amr had donated money to any hospital outside Palestine after receiving treatment there, describing the reports as “baseless.”
Al-Mahmoud said Abu Amr was well and working normally, noting that he was not aware that Abu Amr was receiving any kind of treatment at Palestinian or foreign hospitals.
How dare anyone consider that a Palestinian officia donates money to a "non-Palestinian" hospital?

The PA is forced to deny the story on the official's behalf, because it is so threatened by the very idea of a Palestinian showing any appreciation to Israeli Jews. It couldn't even ignore the story - it had to deny it.

For honor.

Think about that. It is a point of honor not to show gratitude to Israeli doctors.

And understand that as long as Palestinian Arabs are brainwashed to hate Israel and Jews, to the point that they must issue statements denying gratitude to even Israeli hospitals that cater to them, there is no chance of peace. Ever.





We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
