A group of British doctors has called for a boycott of the Israeli

May 21, 2007
In a letter published in The Guardian in April, a group of British doctors
called for a boycott of the Israeli Medical Association (IMA) and its expulsion
from the World Medical Association (WMA) for allegedly failing to uphold
international medical ethical standards in the Palestinian territories.
We, the representatives of medicine in Israel, categorically deny these
accusations and wish to take a stand in support of the IMA and humane
medical treatment for all in Israel.
It is all too clear that Dr. Derek Summerfield is once again feeding his own
personal, systematic dislike of Israel and will persist in doing so regardless of
the truth.
As for Dr. David Halpin, if the best he can do is quote Amira Hass: Life Under
Israeli Occupation – published August 26, 2001 in The Independent, at the
height of the Intifida, we suggest he undertakes a more up-to-date and
thorough study of the situation, as described below.
Unfortunately, the other signatories were presumably unaware of the reality
of the situation. We would therefore like to clarify some facts and provide an
incomplete sampling of health activity aimed at helping the Palestinian
population: 2,346 Palestinian children with birth defects were treated last
year in Israeli hospitals (up from 1,604 in 2005), 29, 919 Palestinian patients
were granted permits to undergo medical treatments in hospitals in Israel (up
from 24,076 in 2005), and 1,600 Palestinian emergency patients were
transferred by ambulance from the PA to hospitals in Israel (up from 800 in
We would also like to reiterate what was expressed in a recent IMA letter: The
IMA is not, and has never been, the ‘executive arm of the Israeli
establishment.' It is an apolitical organization that, like every other national
medical organization, concerns itself with medical and health issues and not
the establishment or support of any sort of political policy.
The IMA has continuously called for funds to be transferred [to the PA] not in
kind but in the form of food and medicine so that help could be given where
it is truly needed.
In addition to the above, hundreds or thousands of Palestinian patients
receive medical care in Israel each year, usually at a cost absorbed by the
Israeli government. As an example, in 2004, NIS 36, 645, 507 (approximately
8, 143, 446 USD at the time) of PA debts to Israeli hospitals were offset. The
IMA has intervened on occasions where a patient was about to be evicted
from an Israeli hospital for lack of funds. The IMA has also intervened on
many occasions of Palestinian patients, physicians, and medical students who
encountered difficulties at Israeli checkpoints, including petitions to the High
Court of Justice on certain matters. Israeli doctors learn and work side by side
with their Arab colleagues, treating both Jewish and Arab patients, Israeli and
Palestinian. Sometimes these very same dedicated physicians meet their
death at the hands of terrorists, leaving their Palestinian patients to wonder
who will care for them.
The organization has, at several points in the past, attempted to meet with
its Palestinian counterparts in an effort to foster mutual cooperation and
better understanding, including the release of a joint statement. Almost none
of these meetings have taken place, because of refusal on the Palestinian
In addition to the above, there are numerous collaborative health care
initiatives taking place at any time. The First International Congress on
Chronic Disorders in Children was attended in April by 300 Israeli and 100
Palestinian doctors and the First Middle East Symposium on Dental Medicine
represented a further expression of the relationship launched between the
Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Al-Quds University.
Under the Israeli program "Save a Child's Heart", doctors at Wolfson Hospital
repair congenital heart defects for children from the Palestinian territories,
Iraq, Jordan and Africa; more than 1,000 children, about half from Gaza and
the occupied West Bank, have been helped so far by the program.
Teams at Bethlehem University and at Tel-Aviv University have worked
together to investigate the genetic causes of deafness. A new graduate
program will enable Palestinian students to pursue post-graduate research in
this field at Tel-Aviv University .
Jerusalem's Hadassah hospital has trained Palestinian physicians and nurses
in cancer treatments, and staff from this hospital and Palestinian hospitals
exchange ideas and information on an ongoing basis.
It saddens us greatly to see and hear of Palestinian civilians receiving
inadequate health care, including in Gaza, from which Israel unilaterally
withdrew in 2006. It saddens us that funds transferred to the Palestinian
leadership are often used for guns and bombs instead of for hospitals and
medicines. It saddens us that terrorists kill or maim our civilians, kidnap our
soldiers, rain missiles on Israeli cities, and then hide among civilians and
civilian structures such as hospitals. And it pains us that terrorist attacks on
Israeli civilians (including terrorists posing as ill people in need of medical
care) result in security measures that sometimes cause hardship to innocent
Palestinians. We do our best to help whenever possible, despite these
constraints, and have often called for a separation of political and humane
issues, so that no one suffers from the current conflict.
The “facts” expressed in the letter of the Palestinian organizations calling for
a boycott of the IMA, are a far cry from reality. It is our hope that your
readers will form unbiased opinions and recognize the steps that Israeli
doctors are taking to improve the health and treatment of all peoples,
regardless of race or religion. Those who have preconceived opinions will
undoubtedly stick with them. But for those who want the truth, we have
attempted to present it. However, unlike our accusers, who present nameless
numbers of supporters, we are proud to be associated with the Israeli
Medical Association and willingly supply our details.
