    Even the mean Jews in Israel have helped out.....

    Iraqi baby in Israel for heart surgery



    HOLON, Israel, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- A week-old Iraqi baby girl was taken to Israel Wednesday for a heart operation that cannot be performed in Iraq.

    Physicians told the BBC the child's arteries are reversed and she needs emergency surgery within the next week.

    Cradled in her mother's arms and swathed in a red and yellow blanket, tiny Bayan Jassem was welcomed by Israeli doctors with the Arabic greeting "Salaam Aleikum."

    Her trip to Israel was organized with the help of an Israeli charity called "Save a Child's Heart."

    Bayan and her parents were accompanied by Jonathan Miles, an American who has often escorted Palestinian children to Israeli hospitals.

    The Israelis do it because it's the right thing to do. There are idiots and murderers amongst them, but not in the number we seem to see on the other side.

    I hope the child is doing fine.

    It is an old story. Unfortunately, she didn't but the parents were ever grateful to the doctors. I saw them in an interview and they said that the kindness of the Israeli doctors made them change their mind about what they had always thought about Israelis in general....

    However, once they got home, who knows!

    Once they got home their story better change or they'll meet the same fate as an Israeli.

    Sad isn't it? They can't go home and tell everybody how helpful the Israelis were or it might get them killed.

    What a pathetic society.

    The son of a good friend of mine was born this way. He is now almost two years old and after a few surgeries, he is prefectly normal, although he won't be able to stay active or live in high elevations.
