Hi friends! If you know anything about Israeli technology, you know they have produced some of the world’s most astounding medical breakthroughs! Just this morning I shared about a new focused ultrasound platform that uses MRI guidance. Israelis have also produced other advanced medical equipment such as AlphaOmega (which also helps treat Parkinson’s), SoftWheel (restoring mobility to those in need), and MobileODT.
So, it only stands to reason that, if you are a Palestinian in need of a lung transplant, you turn to……Israel?
Yes, you read that correctly! In fact, this is not “just any ‘ol Palestinian” in need of a lung transplant. This is none other than Saeb Erekat, the Palestinian Authority’s lead negotiator and secretary-general of the PLO! Indeed, Erekat is reportedly suffering from pulmonary fibrosis and is on the lung transplant list of both Israel and the US.
It seems that, after a career given to tough negotiations against the Jewish state, he now turns to them for a potentially life-saving transplant! (Read more here.)
It never ceases to amaze me that year-after-year Israel is chastised by enemies all around (and by the UN), yet the world…even her enemies…come running to Israel when a medical miracle is needed. Even more amazing is the fact that Israeli hospitals treat every single patient the same, whether friend or foe.
What incredible respect for life. Israelis are not perfect. (Far from it!) But we could all learn a thing or two from them about the value of life. How many of us would warmly welcome and treat one of our most bitter enemies in need of life? In fact, how many of us who carry within us the LIFE OF CHRIST warmly share it with our friends…much less our enemies.
Something to think about…
