When Your Doctor is a Muslim: Medical Terrorism Comes to America

By Debbie Schlussel
**** IMPORTANT UPDATE, 07/05/07: Please read my 07/03/07 updated list of terrorist doctors and information on the scary Oath of Muslim Doctors. ****
Sometimes–so many times–diversity is not what it’s cracked up to be.
Just ask Joseph Applebaum. Well, you could ask him. But you won’t get an answer. He’s dead. And he’s dead because he was a Jew, and his doctor is a Muslim and grad of “Ayman Al-Zawahiri” Medical School.
But Applebaum wasn’t denied treatment for being a Jew in Egypt. Or elsewhere in the Muslim world. It happened right here on U.S. soil. In Chicago.
As Muslim doctors continue to flood into the country under lax immigration laws, hospitals around the country have acquired their fair share of them. Many hospitals in the Detroit area are now dominated by Muslim doctors and have been for some time.


Joseph Applebaum, Z”L*: Muslim Doctor Refused to Treat Him, Let Him Die

But even in hospitals where they do not predominate, Muslim doctors are starting to demonstrate behavior toward non-Muslim patients that is beyond alarming.
On December 1, 2003, Joe Applebaum was admitted to Rush North Shore Medical Center, a major hospital in Chicago. He was stricken with an acute (or distended) abdomen–a swelling of the stomach that is easily diagnosed and treated. But it was never treated by anyone at the hospital. For 12 hours, Joe Applebaum was left alone–left to die, which he did the next day.
A Jewish man, he was identified as a Jew on the front page of his medical chart. The chief resident doctor assigned to treat Mr. Applebaum, Osama Ahmed Ibrahim, MD, sure noticed the religious notation on Applebaum’s chart. And it appears that this is why he never once checked or examined this emergency patient, Mr. Applebaum, and left him to die. When another doctor at the hospital finally examined Mr. Applebaum–not his assigned doctor, Dr. Ibrahim, he told Applebaum’s son, Michael, to say good-bye to his father because he was about to die.
Dr. Ibrahim, is a Muslim from Birmingham, England–a hotbed of Islamic radicalism and terror planning. It is breeding ground for anti-Semitic hate. He is a graduate of Ain Shams University Medical School in Egypt. This extremist school featured on its faculty the father of Al-Qaeda mastermind and number two, Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri. Pere Zawahiri was a Muslim Brotherhood activist.
Other Ain Shams faculty members and grads include:

* late HAMAS leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin;
* Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Mahdi Akef;
* LAX terrorist shooter Hesham Mohamed Hedayet;
* Extremist Canadian Imam, Aly Hindy; and
* Co-leader of Yemen’s extremist Al-Islah Party, Abdul Majeed Al-Zindani.

Why did Dr. Ibrahim neglect a patient who came in with an easily treatable condition and leave him to die, 12 hours later? It appears it can only be because he did not want to treat a Jewish patient and let him live. There can be no other reason.
Mr. Applebaum’s son, Michael, is a medical doctor and an attorney. While he was waiting for Dr. Ibrahim to see his father, he called Dr. Ibrahim and alerted him to the growingly severe condition his father was in and that his father was suffering from an acute abdomen. Dr. Ibrahim claimed he examined Mr. Applebaum. But that was a lie. He’d never seen him.
And he essentially murdered him by denying treatment. It’s a case of extreme negligence and medical malpractice for the apparent purpose of anti-Semitic murder.
Joseph Applebaum’s son Michael is now suing Dr. Ibrahim, the hospital–Rush North Shore Medical Center, and others involved in his father’s murder. The case is filed in Illinois, and he is looking for a good attorney to pursue the case he has filed. If you are interested or can help, please contact him at the website he set up to document this ongoing tragedy.
This isn’t the only case where a Muslim doctor deliberately let his Jewish patient die, it is just the first that we know of. And it likely won’t be the last.
Muslim doctors–especially those from foreign medical schools deep in the world of anti-Semitic, anti-American hate; but many from here, too–have backgrounds that are incompatible with the basic level of care that is required and expected in America. Sadly, no-one is vetting them out of our healthcare system. And no-one will.
But we know that there are many doctors who’ve been at the forefront of taking lives–not saving them–in the name of the “Religion of Peace”:

* Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri–Al-Qaeda mastermind and number two man, reportedly a surgeon and/or psychiatrist;
* Dr. Mohammad Rabi Al-Zawahiri–Ayman’s father and a Muslim Brotherhood enthusiast, pharmacologist and professor at Ain Shams Medical School;
* Dr. “Abu Hafiza”–Al-Qaeda master planner who was the brains and commander of the Moroccan cell that provided logistics for the 9/11 attacks, and he recruited Qaeda insurgents for battles in Fallujah, Moroccan psychiatrist;
* Dr. Abdel Aziz Al-Rantisi–Late HAMAS leader, pediatrician;
* Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahar–HAMAS co-founder and leader, surgeon and lecturer at the Islamic University in Gaza;
* Dr. Fathi Abd Al-Aziz Shiqaqi–Late founder of Islamic Jihad and active in Fatah, physician;
* Dr. George Habash–Founder and chief of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), pediatrician (which is interesting since he rocketed a school bus full of children in Avivim, Israel;
* Dr. Bashar Assad–President of Terror-sponsor state Syria, welcoming home to every Islamic terrorist group imaginable, ophthalmologist.

And there are other issues, such as infectious disease. We are no seeing cases in Britain in which some Muslim doctors refuse to wash their hands with alcohol-based disinfectant, per the Muslim prohibition on alcohol consumption.
In New Jersey, Dr. Ahmed Rashed, a Muslim Arab resident, severed and stole the hand of a cadaver as a gift for a stripper. Such little respect for life from a religion now very much participating in a profession that takes an oath to do no harm and to preserve patient’s lives. Not only did he get a slap on the hand–no jail time and, likely, no criminal record–but he currently has a job practicing medicine at Maimonides Medical Center in New York. The real Maimonides–a legendary, brilliant Jewish doctor, rabbi, and religious scholar–is turning over in his grave.
Perhaps, Dr. Applebaum’s suit against Rush North Shore Medical Center will make hospitals think twice before they hire Muslim doctors inclined to practice Medical terrorism against their patients. Today, the victim is a Jew, solely because he is Jewish. But tomorrow, it will be a Christian, solely because he/she is a Christian. Or some other non-Muslim victim, solely because he/she is a non-Muslim victim.
Can we afford to have doctors in America whose allegiance to their patients is far less than their allegiance to an extreme observance of a religion of hate? If they cannot and will not tender care, they should not be licensed to practice medicine in the United States.
Like I said, Maimonides is turning over in his grave. Joseph Applebaum, *Zichrono LiVrachah–Blessed Be His Memory.

What happened to the doctor? Aren’t there any charges that could be made against him, neglect, malpractice, you’re fired.

John Cunningham on May 17, 2007 at 6:41 am

I’d like to know as well. When is enough enough?

warpmine on May 17, 2007 at 7:57 am

A very disturbing story. Perhaps if the Applebaums can pry John Edwards away from his blow dryer he might take the case.

Southernops on May 17, 2007 at 8:24 am

This is so awful. It’s disgusting. These people are everywhere. It just confirms that, no matter how well educated they are, they’re still animals. I am somewhat thankful that I live nowhere near there, not because I am afraid, but because I feel the need to take matters into my own hands and deal with these criminals. Our government is doing nothing about this. How long before ever larger groups of vigilantes begin to mete out justice to these invaders? I hope the Applebaums get a great attorney and a judge who’s still an American. I believe if this “doctor” gets away with this, someone will take matters into their own hands. This is so out of control!!

FreeAmerican on May 17, 2007 at 8:37 am

I guess the Hippocratic Oath means nothing to these humanoids. Ironic because I read that foolish Israel is taking in Palestinian wounded to be teated during the current Fatah-Hamas war in Gaza. Didn’t they make a movie about these people called “Natural Born Killers”?

Excellent piece DebbieÖespecially the slowly realized truth of these comments, and so very, very, sad.
My condolences to the family.
I hope Michael, Mr. Applebaum’s son, sues everyone connected with the case for 500+ million and that hospital is forced to shut down. Then all hospital staff lose their jobs in the fallout. In a PERFECT WORLD that would be proper justice.
ThenÖyears laterÖpeople could look and point at the abandoned hospital that once was and say,
ìSee, thatís the liability that Muslims bring with them. An old frail man died there needlessly because he trusted his care to a Muslim doctor who betrayed him.î
The truth just keeps surfacing: MUSLIMS are ìvessels of hateî incapable of being assimilated into peaceful society.
And their religion is HATE and MURDER.
Whether the jihadist is a simpleton, or a doctorÖtheir LEARNED HATRED is the same.
I would never trust my care to a Muslim doctor.
MUSLIMS, of course, nurse a special hatred for all JewsÖand canít be trusted in so grave a matter. His son should have moved his Dad immediately after learning the doctor was a Muslim. Itís so sad he didnít.

The Canadien on May 17, 2007 at 9:20 am

By contrast,
Israeli doctors save Iraqi baby
650 Israel doctors provide health care to Palestinian patients
Iran allows children to die rather than be saved by Jews

aunursa on May 17, 2007 at 9:48 am

Why is it that we hear of this outrage only on Debbie’s site? Where is the AMA? State medical board? This quack’s license should be pulled, STAT.

lexi on May 17, 2007 at 9:55 am

Mr. Applebaum’s medical chart should be this doctor’s undoing on way or the other. Either he examined him and neglected to give him the care he obviously needed, or he lied about seeing him.
Either way he should at the very least have his license pulled. Preferrably of course he should be charged with murder.

stevecanuck on May 17, 2007 at 11:08 am

His son is going to sue?
OK, that’s fine with me. Frankly, I think this qualifies as a hate crime. Don’t you?

There is NO Santa Claus on May 17, 2007 at 11:17 am

What I cannot understand is why you constantly refer to Islam as the “religion of peace?” Islam is not by any stretch a true religion. At best, it is a cult. It comes much closer to devil worship than anything else.
Only religions are to be protected under Amendment 1.

Happiness Pursuer on May 17, 2007 at 11:30 am

If true, there must be other instances where this doctor failed to treat or treat properly other Jewish patients. I wonder if any of this blog’s readers know of any?
BTW: I hear that there is a hotel in Grand Rapids which is going to have a female-only floor. I wonder what the inside story is on that one.

sonomaca on May 17, 2007 at 12:09 pm

They are nested in sarcasm quotes. Everyone here knows what Islam is. Unfortunately, having a billion+ slaves worldwide, and keeping them from apostatizing under the pain of death, keeps those numbers, and the illusion of Islam being a religion (and I use the term here in a narrower sense i.e. a mainstream equivalent to real religions like Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism,…). A study of the Quran, and the fact that the Sunnah is such an integral part of the study of Islam, highlights the fact that Islam is simply an overgrown cult of a 7th century pedophile brute.
Memo to all Infidels: never see a Muslim doc. Even Jack Kevorkian is better.

Infidel Pride on May 17, 2007 at 12:13 pm

This is terrible! I do hope he loses the license to practice medicine in every state in America. He should be charged with murder and sentenced accordingly. They always say they want the “rights” – how about taking some of the responsibility of being an American!
I just finished reading in one of the weekly news mags about a disfigured Palestinian woman who had been told she would never marry – so she loaded herself up with a bomb and was intending to go to the ISRAELI hospital to kill herself and all the doctors and staff who had been treating her for a long time!!! Thank goodness it was prevented. But a rather troublesome insight into the thinking of the Muslims.
Thanks for keeping us informed, Debbie.

CapeConservative on May 17, 2007 at 12:32 pm

Infidel Pride, believe it or not, I clearly understand the sarcasm and all the rest. But I appreciate your response. Perhaps my sarcasm on the sarcasm was too remote. Although “Religion? of Peace?” might be a slight improvement within the quotes.
But, sarcasm aside- Amendment 1 is too important to neglect. It states quite simply: Religion is religion. All else is all else. And never the two shall meet. Perhaps the pin heads in the courts and elsewhere can’t read. But Madison and Jefferson clearly addressed the wall between the two.
There is no earthly reason to grant Amendment 1 protection to Islam.
America is slowly beginning to wake up. Very slowly. Information provided by Debbie Schlussel and others does help. But we need more. We need qualified, proven leaders. The inconvenient truth is- we will not find them in a Senator just out of diapers and a former hill billy posing as a Senator. I am too far off topic. I’ll return to topic.
There is no earthly reason to accept the services of a Muslim doctor for anyone feeling uncomfortable, no more so than if the practitioner were to be were dressed in a white hood and sheet.

Happiness Pursuer on May 17, 2007 at 12:41 pm

Came back and read the rest of the story. It reminded me of that story that surfaced about the hand washing story from Britain. What did they finally decide over there about that?

John Cunningham on May 17, 2007 at 1:00 pm

All infidels NNA for muslim…er medical treatment; even in Infidel Land! What do you suppose would happen if a non-muslim doctor denied his/her muslim patient medical treatment becuase the patient just happened to be a muslim? Also, what if the muslim patient died due to the lack of medical treatment from his/her infidel doctor? We would certainly think the media and the ACLU would file a lawsuit against the doctor under the charges of negligence,malpractise, and racism. Not only would the doctor have his license revoked and his medical facility shut down, he could probably have to serve a life sentence ( or maybe 50 years)in prison. He may even have to face a death sentence on top of that if the family of the deceased patient get their way with the help of their lawyers,ACLU,and the human rights activists. There would be outrage comming out of the mainstream media, ruthlessy vilifying the doctor, comparing his to Dr. Mengele.I hope Joseph Applebaum’s family will take neccesary action.

Jew Chick on May 17, 2007 at 1:41 pm

your articles are getting to the point of not passing the determinism test.
if your point is that the doctor committed a crime because he was a muslim and not because he was an asshole and a criminal youre starting to sound like a jewish nazi.
If youre saying that he did it because he’s hiding in the religion of islam then you need to make that point, otherwise you are saying that there is something intrinsically linked between being a murderer and being a muslim, which is a lie and just took a huge dump on all of our allies in islam that do things like interpret and pull guard against these same scumbags. That would amount to Deb aiding the enemy and compromising our efforts.
Youre smart enough to know the fine point I am making so save the hysterics.
Ie, I got ripped off on a pay check by a man that was Jewish. Did he rip me off because HE was an asshole or because there’s a line in the talmud about screwing over whitey contractors?
Honest and open-minded people want to help anyone regardless of their ancestry, but you defeat your own purpose when you inject determinism into your argument.
I will grant that in the billion plus world of Islam that grew without radio, tv or the internet, there are thousands and thousands of idiots, but this is not the cure. Finding one amongst them and then incriminating them all byassociation?!! That’s Hess.
What should be done instead is removing all of the groupthink and then pusuing the line of argument that it was this particular doctor’s professional pedigree that effected his decision and breaking that down.
Next we should dissolve the teacher’s union monopoly over public education and open up the med schools to our own kids instead of to killers.
Taking all of our mistakes and lack of effort to control the enemy within and pinning it onto ALL muslims is the same as jumping off the lift chair to get on that slippery slope.
Dont give yor enemy ANY ammo. All muslims arent our enemy, and it stops us from finding the ones that are when you give the killer’s defenders an opening like this.
Why would any Muslim WANT to be a good American if they knew they could never win anyway?
Would you want to be a good American if everyone repeatedly called you a Christkiller that gave the Reds the bomb?!!
We need to make sure that all of this stays straight and on point. Muslims are volunteering and dying to save Iraq’s democracy (cf., and you need to remember that while youre sitting in the A/C bitching about one doctor.
As disgusting and deserving of the noose as he is.

playertwo on May 17, 2007 at 2:07 pm

    playertwo, you’re either extremely unaware or a muslim practising the law of taqquiya – lying to the khuffar – and engaging in “astroturfing.”

    The male surgical ward in an Irish hospital had to be closed during Christmas. it was filthy – chief surgeon, Muslim.

    A mother walked out of that hospital earlier in the year when another Muslim – African – terrorised her two year old. He was so traumatised that when he saw his grandmother returning to the exam room to retrieve her eyeglasses, he broke down again.

    Another mother brought her infant to an ER in N Ireland, following a fall. The Muslim resident was too busy getting information about the USA, to notice petechia in the infant’s sclera, indicating brain bleed. Fortunately another, English doctor, spotted it.

    So see the pattern, playertwo????? Utah, watch out – they like the tradition of polygamy, and you’re perceived to be a wealthy state.

    Salome – white doctors fall over themselves to please black patients. Black doctors and staff in New York Hospitals and medical facilities are disgustingly racist, and informed by the Black Muslim movement.

    As for the standards in that hospital, chances are the admins are either Affirmative action appointees or Muslims.

    Let’s face it, medicine is politicised. Where government money is involved, standards go down, protectionism and nepotism go up. glad I’m out of there.

    My sympathies to the bereaved family of Mr. Applebaum.

    skylark on March 3, 2010 at 5:15 am

What an outrage!
Around where I am at Kaiser, a majority of the doctors are muslim… way in hell I’d ever choose a WAY in hell.

Highrise on May 17, 2007 at 3:41 pm

Hey my MD is a grad of that same Arab University. Fortunately he is a Coptic Christian who left Egypt presumably for a better life in the US. His skills are average.
That said, I agree with PLAYERTWO.
Deb, Jumping to conclusions and getting emotional lowers your credibility. Think of the lynch mob involved in the Duke case. Let’s get all the facts. I’d be very interested in an “update” when this is settled in court.
The MD is a negligent asshole but whether bigotry was involved remains to be seen. I hope the case is vigorously investigated. BWT Where is Abraham Foxman when you need him? Probaly still bitching about “The Passion”

Samoyed on May 17, 2007 at 4:19 pm

It is impossible to determine which Muslims aren’t our enemy, and which ones are. After all, taquiyya is one of their special talents, and so it’s absolutely useless to try and place our trust in ‘moderate’ Muslims, or other such mitigating adjectives that might be appended to them.
The onus of proving that they aren’t our enemy should be on them: we have taken enough hists worldwide – 9/11, 3/11, 7/11, 7/7, Bali, Casablanca, Israel, Beslan, et al, and therefore, Muslims don’t deserve that presumption of innocence. Besides, I have a simple way for a Muslim to show (s)he isn’t our enemy: Jettison Islam! Switch to anything else – Christian, Atheist, Jewish, Buddhist, Zoroastrian, Hindu, etc. Once one makes that leap, it’s worth trusting such a person.
But no earlier.

Infidel Pride on May 17, 2007 at 4:48 pm

No one is saying all Muslim doctors would let Jewish patients die. However, Debbie points out some disturbing facts about this one, namely his hometown of Birmingham, where genocidal anti-Semitism is pretty much universal, and the place of his education (ditto).
If he were a US-born and US-educated Muslim doctor, we might be a bit less suspicious. Might be. You’d have to see if he was an MSA member in school, whether he was religious, went to Mosque (where incitment to anti-Semitic murder is par for the course), etc…

sonomaca on May 17, 2007 at 4:51 pm

I was a critical care nurse for several years in a major teaching hospital, so I am seeing this from another perspective. A patient who sits in the ER for 12 hours without being seen OR treated and who is steadily deteriorating SHOULD HAVE BEEN NOTICED BY THE NURSING STAFF. Many, many times, I have called a resident’s superior, and occasionally, I have called an attending physician’s superior, when a situation involving negligence was evolving before my very eyes. I am a gentle, polite person compared to many nurses and yet I came to blows a few times with doctors over the care of a patient; it can be done. I’ve seen many nurses bare their teeth to protect their patients from bad docs, so I find it hard to believe that they all just scattered in fear and deference to this Muslim medical terrorist. ER nurses especially are a tough bunch. But obviously, something happened — maybe the ER was hopping that night and the nurses were not looking out for everyone else’s patient. The nurse assigned to that specific patient as well as the charge nurse that night are, at a minimum, responsible for this tragedy as well as the doctor.
Everyone should be aware that there is even more disgracefulness to this story than that a Muslim doctor decided to kill a Jewish patient; WHERE were the nurses? They would have been the first to notice the patient’s deteriorating condition. Are all the nurses Muslim too, or just incompetent (after all, it is the slum of Detroit).
I do not wish to blame the victim, but I also wonder why the son, if he is a doctor, did not call an ambulance and have his father transferred immediately to another hospital, or call the ER Chief, and demand immediate attention. It is odd to me that he made one phone call to the Muslim doctor and accepted his answer. Was the son not present at the time, but trying to handle this over the phone (in that case, I could understand how he was misled.)
People, something very sad is happening to our health care system in America. It is not your parents’ hospital anymore. Foreign immigrants, some of whom are NOT qualified, as well as local flunkies and medical terrorists are only a few of the dangers out there. Be an advocate for yourself and for your loved ones. Be vigilant. Assess the caregivers as best you can before you trust them or their decisions. I’m sorry it has to be this way, but, that’s the way it is. It is your right to call an ambulance and transfer your loved one to another hospital if you feel you will receive better care there. It also doesn’t hurt to call the patient advocate (every major hospital should have someone serving in this capacity) and make your complaints known.

AmericanJewess on May 17, 2007 at 5:19 pm

Whenever someone says something like, “All muslims arent our enemy”, I know I’m listening to someone who hasn’t read the Qur’an.
Verse 2:98 says, “allah Ado al kafareen” (God is the enemy of infidels). Any Muslim who realizes that his god is our enemy better consider himself to also be our enemy if he knows what’s good for him.
Please take about 3 months and read the Qur’an very, very carefully, then you’ll understand why those of us who populate blogs like Debbie’s think the way we do.
The Qur’an also says, “infidels are unto you open enemies”, so either way you look at it, the battle lines have been drawn, and they’ve been drawn not by us, but by the religion of Islam.

stevecanuck on May 17, 2007 at 5:58 pm

NOT THE LEAST BIT SURPRISED. Everybody on Earth is racist, except naive white people.

steve ventry on May 17, 2007 at 6:18 pm


steve ventry on May 17, 2007 at 6:20 pm

This excuse for a man must not only be fired, but kicked back to the 3rd world country from which he crawled.
Actually, his actions (or lack thereof) do not surprise me, given that he is a Muslim, the scum of the earth.
I have written to the authorities on both sides of “The Pond” about their uncontrolled immigration policies, to no avail.
Our leaders have let us down by allowing this insidious disease to spread in our midst, despite constant warnings.
Are they blind, deaf or simply stupid?
Where do we go from here? Do we take to the streets to deal with this problem, because it ain’t gonna get any better?

nick4693 on May 17, 2007 at 7:18 pm

Actually if you want to know the Truth about Islam read Ishaq’s Sirat (The Prophet Muhammad’s Biography) and The Hadith + Sunnah (which are the equivalent of The Gospel in the Bible). Those add context to the Quran which contains no conquest or order. Those 3 things are even more important than the Quran in understanding Islamic faith and perspective.
Lets have a look at the ANTI-SEMITISM the Islamic holy books promote.
Qur’an 2:61 “Humiliation and wretchedness were stamped on the Jews and they were visited with Allah’s wrath.”
Tabari VIII:130 “The Messenger said during his final illness, Ôø?Two religions cannot coexist in the Arabian Peninsula.’ Umar investigated the matter, then sent to the Jews, saying: Ôø?Allah has given permission for you to be expelled; for I have received word that the Prophet said that two religions cannot coexist in Arabia.”
Ishaq:524 “We cannot accept the oaths of Jews. Their infidelity is so great they swear falsely.”
Ishaq:240 “The Jews are a nation of liars…. The Jews are a treacherous, lying, and evil people.”
Ishaq:250 “The bestial transformation occurred when Allah turned Jews into apes, despised.”
Qur’an 4:55 “Sufficient for the Jew is the Flaming Fire!”
Ishaq:264 “A notable Jew spoke to the Apostle, twisting his tongue. He attacked Islam and reviled it, so Allah sent down, Ôø?Allah knows best about your enemies. Some of the Jews change words from their contexts and say: “We hear and disobey,” twisting their tongues and attacking the religion so Allah cursed them.'”
Ishaq:248 “Allah increases their sickness. A tormented doom awaits the Jews. Allah said, Ôø?They are mischief makers. They are fools. The Jews deny the truth and contradict what the Apostle has brought. I will mock them and let them continue to wander blindly.'”
Qur’an 5:78 “Curses were pronounced on the unbelievers, the Children of Israel who rejected Islam, by the tongues of David and of Jesus because they disobeyed and rebelled.”

the_don on May 17, 2007 at 7:34 pm

I hate to tell you, but once Abortions became legal, doctors stopped taking the Hippocratic oath. Most people don’t know that and think that oath is still some kind of protection. We see the other side of that coin with euthanasia against old and disabled people (e.g., Terri Schiavo) who are just helped along in their “dying process.”
I agree with the commenter about WHERE WERE THE NURSES????

Sioux on May 17, 2007 at 7:38 pm

I agree with Sioux. Futile Care Theory is permeating the practice of medicine and the elderly are particularly subjected to it. Instead of taking the Hippocratic Oath, many doctors are taking a utilitarian approach to medicine.

Sue Bob on May 17, 2007 at 9:44 pm

There is a way to determine which Muslims are not hostile. UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER!!! Kill the rest. They obviously are engaged in jihad.

Loser on May 18, 2007 at 4:41 pm

Dear Debbie:
Just an FYI (which you probably knew anyway). Look up Doctor Sabir, who’s currently on trial for al-Queda related terrorist charges. He was a doctor/intern on Long Island, New York, then wound up in Florida. People who remember him at his internship remember him (and others like him) speaking Arabic to each other on the job, being friendly with doctors who cheered whenever news of Jews or Americans were killed (i.e. 9/11, Palestinian terror, etc.), and had zero concern for non-Muslim people in general.
I hope you’re having a great Shabbos. Enjoy!
-Long Island Nurse

longislandnurse on May 18, 2007 at 11:08 pm

I don’t trust these foreign doctors. My mom was told to have her leg amputated by one of them. She REFUSED, even after they told her she would die if she didn’t.
She lived without the amputation and is still alive today (completely whole) several years later. And that foreign doctor (who looked Middle Eastern type or Pakistani type) never came up to her to smile, say hello or congradulate her even when we passed him in the hospital hallway about a year or so later after after the incident.
IT was then I realized what kind of guy he was. I don’t trust these foreigners in authority at all.
Everyday I thank God my mother stuck to her instinct!

ReallyReallyStupid on May 20, 2007 at 6:20 pm

Islam has infected its followers with malignant hatred. As a retired Jewish physician, I myself have treated Muslims, and if I were still working, would continue to do so. Physicians, dentists, nurses, podiatrists all swear to treat all patients who come to them equally. If they feel they cannot, by law in almost all states, they must REFER that patient to another doctor. “Ignoring” a patient who needs care is not an option. It has been well reported that Haddassh Hospital treats thousands of Muslims, and even treats terrorists!
There is a moral imperative to the practice of medicine. If a doctor feels they cannot serve that imperative, they have no business practicing.

ROSEY1 on May 27, 2007 at 12:16 pm

The answer is CLEAR: simply direct your dollars AWAY from Muslims.
I ALWAYS call medical practices before I visit and ask Point-Blank:
Do you employ ANY Muslims in your offices (Dr., nurse, etc.) and if they ask why, I am very blunt: I tell them I will never do any business with any Muslim.
If they will not answer or guarantee a Muslim free business, I do not allow my medical plan to waste my premium dollars nor do I make any co-pays to them; I black-list them & spread the word.
This is simply a matter of principal and of common sense.
I challenge you all to be Good Americans and do the same as me.

jtg on July 5, 2007 at 10:41 am

This situation is barbaric. I grieve for Mr. Applebaum’s family and I hope they win BIG in their lawsuit.
The pig who murdered him should rot in prison.
The idiot of the day award (in my opinion) goes to French Prez Sarkozy. In case you haven’t seen the article:

So much for the Muslim doctors.
Now just imagine your daughter has been raped by a Muslim, the investigating officer is a Muslim, and judge and prosecutors are Muslims too. Even if they’re not, all it takes is one Muslim on the jury and your rapist will never see the slammer.
There are hundreds of examples of how the infiltration of Koranimals into our countries can, and will,- destroy us. But is anybody listening?

where the hell were the nurses and why wasn’t this patient assesed/reassesd/supervisor /CHIEF notified ?You don’t leave a patient that way for 12 hours – they’re liable s well regardless of their bs about how busy they are,you prioritize and move and get the PHYSICIANS MOVING TOO and have policies and procedures/chain of command for unresponsive or slow moving doctors.
muslim or aetheist whatever,this facility’s patient care is below substandard.
Working with attendings,residents,interns,students from islamic countries for more than 30 years and NEVER has the issue been ethnicity–you could easily substitute black patient white physicians/staff and make the same “”conclusion”” when it is the definition of malpractice.

I have to say that I am sensitive to this too. When I was a resident, I had my eye open to this kind of behavior from a couple of residents that I didn’t trust. At the time, it was a sense, not a certainty. Then later when I saw one of their facebook pages I had no doubt. I had problems with a few Syrian doctors, one of whom absolutely hated Jews and Israel. I always thought to myself, ‘why the f**k is this asshole here in this country.’ If he hates our values, then he should go back to Syria, which of course he DIDN’T.

this common in Israeli hospitals where Muslim doctors work.
especially in safed in the north of Israel in beit cholim ziv.

I am deeply saddened by two things.

One, I am disgusted to be a muslim seeing how some members in our community make a bad name for all of us.

Two, I am disgusted to be an american seeing how most of us blame a whole community, but not the individuals.

Don’t get me wrong, I really am sorry for the person that died because of a doctor refusing to give treatment because of religion. HOWEVER, what you all are doing is just what the doctor did; you all are categorizing a specific religion/race as inferior.

Do not categorize a whole community as evil; only categorize those who deserve.

I think if you add all the antisemitism, antijew, antiamerican, anti world had in a billion mosques, it is still probably less than 0.00005% of the hate that is present on this page. People die….young, old, men, women, children. Doctors are not Gods. I am sure, Michael MD/JD knows that first hand. Perhaps this doctor was incompetent, tired (working over 100 hrs/per week), but most likely there other circumstances. Howe many of you have read his medical records? I am a muslim doctor…I made to med school, here in Chicago, because of strong support from some of my jewish professors and mentors. I have treated thousands of jews with as much care and compassion as I would treat my muslim parents. I have also seen jewish doctors that are absolutely negligient toward Americans, foreigners, christians, muslims, blacks, whites….does that mean that Judiasm is a monsterous religion that hates everyone else except themselves? of course note. I think if you don’t want to be hated and loathed, read your own columns and learn from it as it is a prime example of hate. If you see your own faults, you will realize that the gentiles are not out there to get you. Most of us have good friendships and relationships with jews. I am afraid you might be portraying yourself as a hater. Think about it…that’s the impression I got from reading this blog by accident.

I’m an RN who developed neuro symptoms, memory and speech problems, dropping instruments, and was diagnosed with occlusion to my brain. Most of my physicians are (were) mideastern. They made light of my diagnosis. I cannot work as a critical care nurse, and may never work again, in a profession that I loved. Now I have to fight to get my social security, and I can prove that I am ill. What is sad is that I know of a mideastern family with 4 MDs that brought momma over here, and she got medicare/medicaid and social security, and has never ever worked. I am honerably discharged from the USN, worked in Law Enforcement. Been a RN for 25+years. You’d think I deserved more

Islamophobia at its best!

If you are so paranoid you should look with your own community of the real terrorist who are child molesters- oh how there is the long list of them in each little town in America! Looking to steal your children from you forever!

Well…since everyone is making such a big deal about one failed case BY A MUSLIM DOCTOR, I’m sure all other medical cases must ALWAYS be succesful, right? I mean surely, that’s why you’re making such a big deal about a failed one…because it’s SOOO unexpected. After all, when you go to a hospital you’re always 100% sure that you’ll be cured, right?

WRONG!!!!!! You don’t know. So god help all of us, a poor muslim happened to be at the wrong end here. So he should go to hell. Long live America. The country of (so-called) free rights and equality and fairness and no racism and no prejudice. Oh wait, if you’re a Muslim that’s all shit. Those laws and rights of equality don’t apply to you

And if you want to condemn a Muslim doctor because (if) he abused his power, then condemn all other thousands of doctors who abuse their power too. Who happen to be Cristians, Jews, Hindus and belonging to whatever other religions. My point being, don’t single out Muslims who are wrong…as if there are no Cristians, Jews, Hindus and/or other non-Muslims out there who are wrong. Non-Muslims are no saints!!! Point them out, give their religions bad publicity, shun them in public too if their religion is responsible for their wrong actions!!! If any other American does something bad, like the thousands of rapists and murderers and thiefs and white-collar criminals out there, you don’t point out their religion-and start bad mouthing that religion-unless he’s a Muslim. Figures.
