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

**** IMPORTANT UPDATE, 07/05/07: Please read my 07/03/07 ****
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, , 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.

There are at least 17 causes for acute abdomen, some more easily treated than others. The fact that your article doesn’t appear to have attempted to look in to which acute abdomen condition the patient had leads me to wonder what other important pieces of information you conveniently left out for the creation of this piece?

Brad on February 14, 2013 at 3:09 pm

STFU all of you. take a seat, you’re embarrassing yourself. I agree with Safia. don’t blame this on religion!!! This whole article is biased and a pretty pathetic attempt to brainwash other people into thinking that Islam is bad. well you are all pretty stupid to fall into this trap. SNM. Islam FTW.

Anon on April 6, 2013 at 7:22 am

Brad, the causes of acute abdomen are all irrelevant if the patient is NEVER examined to determine the cause of the condition. And that appears to be what happened, because of the Muslims hate for the Jews.

Susan on May 1, 2013 at 3:33 pm

tell me about it. Every doc around me is from pakistan. But its pretty much the same with every race. White doctors give better treatment to white patients, Pakistani docs give better treatment to their kind, and black docs give better treatment to black patients. Its always better to get a doc that is your own race and religion because u never know who has some prejudice in them. Most people have some prejudice in them. All problems would be solved if G-d just created one race and one or no religion. lol. Honestly speaking, I think there are very few people like me who don’t give a sh*t about race. Not sure how this society is going to function in the upcoming decades just looking at how so many different cultures and religions are being forced to function together. I hope they come up with genetic analysis so that we can imprison violent people before they even do any crime.

    I worked in hospitals for forty years in America and I have never seen a Caucasian Dr. treat white patients better than anyone else. All in your imagination. This article, seven years later, is no less true and alarming now, than it was then. Hope some of you have ‘woke up’ over the years. All cultures are not equal and no matter what you wish to be true, evil lives among us.

    Barb on June 27, 2018 at 9:34 pm

Its true and sadly everyone around me is always a racist. Anyone can be a racist. I have seen pakistani, black, white, asian, indian, jamaican, martian racists. Everyone can be a racist and pretty much everyone has some degree of prejudice in them. So….yay multiculturism. Multiculturism is a good idea and can work only if we kick out all retards and extremists and racists out of the society. Thats if u consider 10 people a society.

Just an FYI, I’m a Christian who was basically “crucified” by a “Christian” theapist because she wanted to cover up her pastor and friends sins and crimes against my children. I was shipped to two Jewish doctors and poisoned via anticholinergic intoxication poisoning. Then shipped to a couple of doctors from India, maybe Muslims, I’m not certain. But they then “snowed” (drugged until only the whites of the eyes show) me for ten days. One of these Indian doctors has now been arrested by the FBI for “snowing” and killing lots of patients. This all happened in the Chicago area. I’m a little confused why the doctors of seemingly all religions are trying to murder the nice Christian mommies in the USA. Mainstream medicine has lost it’s way.

Anyone seeing 30,000 christians gathering and chopping off hundereds of heads, murdering women children? And Millions upon Millions are supporting ISIS. As far as I am concerned the majority of Muslims are not to be trusted. And America should stop Muslim Immigration. Islam should not be protected as a religion, it is an Ideology.

John on October 12, 2014 at 9:06 am

    Fellow Christians kill with drone strikes and tax-funder paid missile strikes and toppling governments.

    Jeff on September 25, 2015 at 11:42 am

Bashar-AlAssad??? That dictator is killing Muslims how are you even referring to him as a Muslim????? You can’t make Islam look bad from your biased point of view by doing that. He is not “sponsored” by Syria, he is taking over Syria! Nobody wants him there, he is terrorizing everyone, from Muslims to Jews to Christians. This article is way too biased.. Please don’t go blaming stuff on religion if you’re not 100% sure what you’re talking about. There are over 20,000 Muslim doctors in the US and you are representing them all by 8 terrorists? What a shame..

Hi, Debbie…I read your website frequently. I am here to tell you as a Catholic Democrat woman that I often share your opinions and viewpoints, especially this one. I believe that I was intentionally mistreated and nearly murdered by my female OB/GYN back in the 90’s. She was a spoiled brat, but obviously domineered by her parents to become a physician, which was apparent by her behavior and actions. She abhorred having to touch, examine, or simply interact with me during routine appointments. At this point, I would like to inform readers that even though it shouldn’t matter, I am an attractive and intelligent woman. I filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against her, and eventually did win after 11(ELEVEN!) long years. I filed the suit against her only 3 days after i gave birth, by the way. She was repeatedly granted more rights, delays, and privacy than I was. I was never really given any answers due to the fact that she was muslim, and I was not. I am not able to provide you with the scary details due to some legal document I was coerced into signing. I hate and am frightened of all doctors and dentists now because of her. Furthermore, she almost succeeded in murdering my baby during childbirth. My child has diminished capacities now as a result of her intentional neglect. It is difficult to refuse a muslim doctor, as like you said, the Detroit area employs so many of them. I now probably get flagged as difficult or crazy when I insist on a non-muslim doctor. I feel absolutely cheated and targeted to this day, and I never had a second child due to this nightmare. Thank you.

Anna on January 26, 2015 at 1:14 am

    I would never have a Muslim doctor, nurse or dentist or technician touch me. I have told them at the hospital and of course they did not like it. Too bad. These people lie and are allowed to lie to us per the coran. I was kicked out of a dentist office for refusing to be touched by his technician. Here in Birmingham MI.I reda the coran and know enough about islam to stick to my guns.Period

A few weeks ago I was distressed to get a letter announcing that my doctor is retiring and that I have been transferred to a Dr. Mohammed –. I agree with a previous poster that one’s primary care physician should be the same religious faith if possible. I’m outraged whenever I read about patients’ rights being ignored or their needs neglected due to a doctor’s personal bias. I feel we have the right to choose our doctor- the most important member of our health and recovery team- based on similar values. Values affect treatment: Western vs. Eastern medicine, holistic vs. pills, etc., and we have different needs. The culture in which one is raised may help determine the best approach in treatment for that person. And, honestly, I feel that Americans, fearful of being labeled ‘intolerant’, are getting too complacent about Muslims living here and insisting they’re just like the rest of us- yet refusing to as$imilate.

Penny on February 9, 2015 at 4:13 am

It’s articles like these that illustrate the pathological nature of the right. This is a wicked distortion of what appears to have been a very tragic event, and to use it to slander the doctor by assuming that his “inherently corrupt religious compulsions” compromised his allegiance to the Hippocratic Oath. Does this story appear anywhere in news archives? No. Any mention of this incident outside this contemptible site? No. Any credible evidence that this event even took place? Of course not!

This is just another particularly shameless attempt to further demonize Arabs and Muslims in general. Even worse, you superimpose the Yellow Star into your article, and as the grandchild of survivors, the fact that you are using the symbol of their suffering to further defame other people is outrageously offensive.

This is also an exact replication of the old canard about the Jews who refuse to treat injured gentiles. Is there no depth to which the right wing will not sink to? Schlussel, you are a joke.

Brian Lerner on February 25, 2015 at 6:49 pm

In addition, if this awful lie ever leads to a real hate crime, I hope the author of this atrocity will be prosecuted accordingly. Freedom of speech is king, but fabricating stories to inspire hate does not qualify.


Brian Lerner on February 26, 2015 at 9:31 am

Considering that all your narratives are true, what about the other tens of thousands of doctors in the west with wonderful success, and respectful image?
this article should be prosecuted as a hate crime

The problem I see with a lot of obviously muslim responders is that none that I can see here acknowledge that a problem exists with some in their religion suspiciously involved in denial of care to non-muslims and/or involved with terrorism. Now that is something that no other religion is associated with to any extent such that articles are written. It only makes sense though since the muslims involved in this sort of thing see no need to recognize any authority other than their religion even if it means death to non-muslims. The muslims who may not be involved in this typically never admit to the problem and get offended. It would be much more evident that they were good people if they would come forward and admit the problem exists and even give information about the deceivers in their ranks. Consider the doctors among them performing genital mutilation among their own who have had to be exposed by undercover f.b.i. investigations. Muslims are not just a religion but an ideology that involves their faith with government such that it dictates what even doctors and others should do and many follow brainwashed and willing to perform evil. My suggestion to all non-muslims is beware of muslims as their faith allows them to lie without sin.
