Al-Makassed has been Jerusalem's largest Arab hospital for many years. And in recent years, it has been under severe financial strain. Doctors went on strike last year after not being paid for months.

Now they are ready to do it again, and the hospital might not survive.

Most of its patients - about 70% - come from referrals by the Palestinian Authority, who are supposed to pay their medical expenses. But it hasn't been doing that. Doctors have not been paid at all during Ramadan.

Jerusalem Arabs can go to Israeli hospitals and generally prefer the Jewish-run hospitals, so the funding al-Makassed gets from Israeli HMOs is limited.   

The hospital is described as in danger of collapse.

As of last year, the hospital had about $49 million in debts.

 Now compare that to the "pay for slay" program of Palestinian Authority paying terrorists salaried and their families a stipend. That expense is well above $300 million a year.

If the PA would stop its immoral policy of paying murderers and their families. it could easily afford to pay its debts to al-Makassed.

But paying "martyrs" and their families is entrenched in a  society that praises terrorists every day. 

Actual hospitals might fail because the Palestinian Authority prioritizes the welfare of murderers and terrorists.

Think about that.
