Rambam Medical Team Saves Life of Arab Teen in Hebron

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

In a dramatic race to treat a critically injured Palestinian Authority Arab youth, an emergency medical team from Rambam rushed to a hospital in eastern Jerusalem with the equipment that would save his life.

When 18 year-old Muhammad Jabri from the Judean city of Hebron went out to celebrate the end of high school, the evening ended with a near-fatal motor accident that left him critically injured.

The teen was treated intially at a local hospital in Hebron and then he was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit at the Augusta Victoria Hospital in eastern Jerusalem.

But when Jabri’s condition suddenly began to deteriorate, the doctors realized that his lungs were damaged beyond their capacity to resuscitate him. At this point Dr. Abed El-Rauf Bey, Head of the ICU, urgently contacted Dr. Tzvi Adler, a senior Cardiac Surgeon in the Cardiac Surgery Department at Rambam hospital in Haifa.

A team from Rambam had recently come to Augusta Victoria with an ECMO machine to administer temporary external cardiac and respiratory support to one of their patients. This same ECMO machine, Dr. Bey realized, was the key to saving young Jabri as well.

“Immediately that same night, an ambulance set out from Rambam to eastern Jerusalem, carrying the ECMO machine and a medical team led by Dr. Adler,” said a spokesperson for Rambam Medical Center.

Arriving at the hospital, they connected the youth to the ECMO, then carefully transported him to Rambam.

“His condition was precarious when he arrived here,” recalls Dr. Adler. “but the ECMO gave his lungs a rest and his body the chance to recuperate.”

After a little over two weeks in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Rambam, Jabri is now out of danger and ready to return to the hospital in eastern Jerusalem.

“We expect he will make a full recovery,” says Assistant Professor Gil Bolotin, Director of the Cardiac Surgery Department. “Our department cooperates with hospitals throughout Israel, extending this life-saving equipment wherever it is needed.”

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

Please pray for Esther bat Hana Priva.

(JNi.Media) Three people were injured Monday night from a Molotov cocktail that was thrown at their vehicles on Route 20 in the direction of Beit Hanina in East Jerusalem.

A 27-year-old woman was seriously wounded and two others were only slightly wounded. Police and Border Guard forces started searching for the attacker. Fire fighting teams extinguished the two vehicles.

The young woman was evacuated by MDA paramedics to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center with 25% 2nd and 3rd degree burns all over her body. She was fully conscious and in stable condition. The young woman’s husband managed to escape from the vehicle unharmed.

The vehicle, which was completely burned, rolled down the road and hit an oncoming vehicle driven by a 20-year-old man who was slightly injured. He was evacuated to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

Another 20-year-old man suffered from burns in his hands and from smoke inhalation after trying to put out the burning vehicles with a fire extinguisher.

“The attack near Beit Hanina this evening” should remind us that “the exception is Jews who attack Arabs and the routine is Arab terrorism against Jews,” said Israel Beiteinu Chairman Avigdor Lieberman in response to the incident. “Every terrorist, no matter from which side, should be handled forcefully, but we must remember what is the real threat against us and that we must invest our full resources in protecting the Jews in the Land of Israel. ”

The Zionist Camp (Labor) party also issued a statement after the attack: “We must not let terrorism raise its head anywhere. This is a serious incident and whoever dares to harm a citizen of Israel should know that Israel would pursue him with all her might.”

“It is unacceptable that civilians will be afraid to drive in Jerusalem, and we are convinced that the security forces will not let go until they catch the terrorists.”

If you wish to pray for the health of the wounded young woman, her name is Inbar Esther bat Hannah Priva.

Kerry ‘Knows’ ObamaDeal Will Make the Middle East a Safer Place

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Anyone who is sure about anything in the Middle East is talking through his hat, and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry sports the most porous hat in the world.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has reassured the Gulf States he “knows” that the nuclear agreement with Iran will make the world a better place, and the Obama administration is being pressed to “prove” it on the terms of the Sunni oil-rich kingdoms.

They want billions of dollars in weapons, and Qatar dedicated much of Kerry’s visit to insist that the United States force Israel out of half of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.

He began his Middle East tour, sans Israel, with talks in Egypt before moving on to Qatar. Despite White House spins to the contrary, the Gulf States are miserably unhappy with the agreement and are keeping their opposition under the surface while exploiting the opportunity to feed the military-industrial complex and shrink Israel.

Kerry said in Egypt:

There can be absolutely no question that if the Vienna plan is fully implemented, it will make Egypt and all the countries of this region safer than they otherwise would be or were.

The United States and Egypt recognize that Iran is engaged in destabilizing activities in the region — and that is why it is so important to ensure that Iran’s nuclear program remains wholly peaceful.

How does the man know that the deal will make the Middle East safer?

Because he says so, and that’s that.

There have been few people who ever have been able to predict what will happen in the Middle East. Condoleezza Rice, who was Secretary of State in the Bush administration, was “sure” that her move to force democratic elections on the Palestinian Authority would result in a resounding victory for Mahmoud Abbas.

She was one of the few who were shocked that Hamas won the elections.

Kerry’s predecessor Hillary Clinton, who might prove that President Barack Obama really is not the worst president possible, cheered Bashar al-Assad as a “reformer” weeks after the Arab Spring protests broke out in Syria.

President Obama was sure that getting rid of Hosni Mubarak, whose autocratic and undemocratic rule kept Egypt stable, would usher in a new wave of democracy.

He was so sure that he endorsed the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist party, which won the elections. One year later, President Obama enthusiastically backed the removal of Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi for a more “democratic regime” headed by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is Mubarak Number 3.

And now Mr. Kerry is sure that the ObamaDeal the best thing for the Middle East ever since Islam.

Jerusalem Arabs Arrested for Brutally Beating Religious Jewish Couple

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

This is the news that the establishment media don’t want you to read because it interferes with their hate-fest against religious Jews and “settlers.”

Indictments have been filed against six Jerusalem Arabs whom police arrested for assaulting a Hareidi man and a religious couple in the Talpiot neighborhood.

The Hareidi Kikar Shabbat website published the report, but Israel’s left-leaning media, which like to wear their bleeding hearts on the public’s shoulders, were silent.

They continue to berate the entire religious community and the “settler movement” for last week’s arson-murder that everyone assumes was carried out by “hilltop youth” because the word “revenge” was scribbled in Hebrew on the wall of one of two houses in the heart of the Samarian village of Duma, that were attacked with Molotov cocktails and set on fire.

The same media were not interested in reporting that six Arabs, including three minors, used brass knuckles, a knife and a club to assault religious Jews. The language of the Hareidi website that reported the attack used a Hebrew expression that might have been “clean language” for sexual molestation of the young woman, but this has not been confirmed.

Three Jerusalem Arabs with the same last name and ages 19, 20 and 22, along with three minors aged 16 and 17, were indicted for two separate attacks.

They appeared at the Armon NaNatziv walkway in Talpiot and spotted a man, who appeared to be Hareidi, looking towards the Temple Mount.

They mocked him and then struck him with brass knuckles and a knife, leaving him bleeding.  The man was hospitalized and required stitches.

The next day, the attackers appeared at the same spot and started up a conversation with a young religious couple.

They told the man to stay where he was and that the girl should go with them, saying they would give her back to him after 10 minutes.

The Arab attackers stopped the women from trying to call the police and assaulted her and the young man. They knocked his kippa off his head and attacked them both with brass knuckles. The girl began reciting the “shema” prayer that Jews say when facing probable death.

The man was knocked on the ground and lost consciousness momentarily. He suffered a broken nose, and the woman suffered cuts and bruises on her head and shoulders.

Al Asqa Mosque Preacher: Jews Train Doctors to Spread Diseases

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

To paraphrase another hate-filled radical Muslim preacher, Israel’s masochistic side teaches Islamists to spread the disease of hatred.

Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi teaches Islam twice a week in the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount, where Israel has ignored, at least publicly, the increasing takeover by supporters of radical Islamic ideology.

His most recently class taught Muslims that Jews own 95% of the pharmaceutical industry and train doctors to create new diseases so they can spread illness and make more money.

Al-Mughrabi, or his script writer, must be given credit for a creative and healthy – make that unhealthy – imagination.

Palestinian Media Watch translated and published al-Mughrabi’s rant that was telecast on the Al-Msjed Al Aqsa channel last Friday:

Many diseases were created in labs – viruses created by doctors who were bought, trained and taught by the Rothschild family, the Freemasons, the Zionists, or the Jews to create and spread disease so they will be able to sell medicine for it.

According to what is told about the Rothschild family, they own more than half of the world’s wealth… There are approximately 950,000 billion dollars in the world. Out of this amount, 500,000 billion dollars belong to the Rothschild family. The Rothschild family owns the World Bank.

They own about 95% of the world’s pharmaceutical industry. Why do I mention the pharmaceutical industry? Many diseases were created in labs…to create and spread disease so they will be able to sell medicine for it. More than 95% of the pharmaceutical industry and the pharmaceutical trade are owned by the Children of Israel.”

Israeli police finally have had enough of al-Mughrabi and arrested him on Sunday for disseminating hate, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Quds Press, which reported that he” gives religious lessons to children at the mosque.”

Jerusalem Suburb Evacuated as Wildfire Burns Homes

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

Wildfires again began raging in the Judean Hills around the Israeli capital this weekend.

On Sunday, residents of the Jerusalem suburb of Even Sapir were evacuated from their homes in the face of a roaring wildfire that threatened their area.  Several of the homes already caught fire, officials said in the early afternoon on Sunday (August 2).

Brush fires also were raging between the Jewish communities of Tzur Hadassah and Beitar Illit, in the Judean Hills.

Dozens of firefighters rushed to combat the blaze near the western flank of the capital, near the Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center. Authorities have said, however, that the hospital is in no immediate danger thus far.

Four firefighting aircraft are attempting to extinguish the blaze along with the ground crews.

Additional firefighting forces have been placed on alert as well. The Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway, Highway 1, has been blocked off as well, for safety reasons.

A wildfire has also started near the Samaria Jewish community of Elon Moreh – where a similar wildfire got started last week as well.

Just a week ago, firefighting crews managed to extinguish the largest wildfire since the massive Carmel forest fire of 2010. More than 150 firefighters and volunteers spent an entire day protecting homes in the villages of Kfar Uriya, Ta’oz and Tarum from the blaze, which ate of hundreds of dunams around the Jerusalem suburb of Beit Shemesh.

Dry conditions and a huge heat wave is causing risky conditions for forest fires in the area.
