Palestinian Muslims Sacrifice Conjoined Twins for Anti-Israel Propaganda

By Debbie Schlussel

The late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir once said, “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”


Rather Than Accept Jewish Help,

Palestinian Muslims Let Twins Die for Propaganda Against Israel

But, as the latest incident with a pair of now-dead Palestinian conjoined twins shows, it’ll be a cold day in hell before that happens. And the twin girls–Ritaj and Rittal–are yet another example of, “When bad things happen, blame the Jews.”

Palestinian politicians and parents let the conjoined twins die rather than accept offers of help from Israel. The Palestinians, instead, preferred to use these young, innocent babies as yet another disposable prop–another political football–against Israel and the Jewish people.

And to some extent it worked. Associated Press fell for it. But now the twins are dead. Here’s the story: two weeks ago, conjoined twins were born in Gaza. They did not have much chance for survival unless they were separated and treated because they were born suffering from a bacterial chest infection, and their hearts, livers and digestive tracks worked in tandem.

As you may know, Israel has some of the best doctors and most advanced medicine in the world. The Israelis–as is their humane and generous practice with even Islamic terrorists who try to blow them up–offered to treat the twins. If anyone would be able to successfully surgically detach them and/or treat the twins’ condition, it would be the Israelis. But the hatred of Gaza politicians was so great, the offer was quickly and steadfastly refused. Of course, you don’t read about the offer. Instead, AP snorts that the twins were flown to Saudi Arabia, after they “overcame immense obstacles to make it out of the Gaza Strip including an Israeli blockade.” This is a lie. Israel NEVER blocked the twin babies from going anywhere. HAMAS and Fatah did.

And instead of going to Israel for the best possible treatment and the most likely chance for survival, the twins flew to that great medical bastion of . . . Saudi Arabia?! Um, there’s a reason the Saudi princes and sheikhs come to America for medical treatment. Their own native medical facilities stink, and they wouldn’t be caught dead in Israel.

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah paid for the twins’ operation and chartered a plane to fly them to Riyadh. But that’s not before HAMAS and the Abbas Fatah Palestinian factions fought over the whole thing and delayed the trip. And once they got to the Kingdom, Saudi doctors said the operation would be impossible because they claimed the twins’ organs were too damaged and their health had degenerated to such a critical condition. The twins died there, at the King Abdulaziz Medical City, on Saturday.

Had the Palestinian Muslim parents of the twins loved their kids more than they loved hating Israel, their two kids might be alive and healing today. But this is the kind of people Israel–and all of us–are dealing with. Muslims care more about destroying all that is not Muslim. And they’re willing to sacrifice their own children–like ragdolls to throw in the dumpster–to get it.  (And, hey, they were girls, so their lives were even more worthless in the eyes of their barbarian people.)

And you wonder why there is no peace in the Middle East. I don’t wonder. It’s pretty clear why not.

I watched a documentary film (a couple of months ago) on a neo-natal ward in Israel (some of the specializations included looking after premature infants, and the ground-breaking techniques of monitoring the infants and ensuring their comfort, etc.) The physicians were treating all who required their medical aid/expertise — Druze, Muslims, Jews, etc.

The film focused on what’s being done for newborns (including premature infants) at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. The film toured the wards. Quite remarkable, and state-of-the-art and innovative techniques were being employed.

you expected better ??? and they were girls too so they really had no value anyway

(george please dont quote me on that)

They don’t have the high regard for human life as the Jews do and they hate the Jews more than they love their own children. Their own children pay dearly for it. Until they change that, peace is never going to come to the Middle East.

I’m not a regular reader of your site, but was appalled by this in this article, but hadn’t heard some of these details.

As for the Israeli’s treating Palestinian kids (and many others), I have some personal experience with it, both as a reporter here, and as a father:

“The bombardee would be Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon, a few miles up the coast from the Gaza Strip. The same one Gaza Palestinians are blowing holes in with Iranian-made Grad/Katyusha rockets.

The same one that Palestinian premature twins are being kept alive in and cared for, while rockets hammer into the walls above, wounding patients and civilians.

This care isn’t a hospital public relations department stunt, but rather a daily, telling occurrence throughout Israel. And a potent measure of the goodwill, health, and tempered resilience of Israeli society.

And I can personally vouch for it:

Both staff and patients at the Jerusalem hospital where my three children were born was made up of Israelis, Jews and Arabs (Palestinian Jerusalem ID card-holders, to the best of my knowledge).

Another family member was also successfully treated a few years ago by a similar staff makeup at the city’s Hadassah Hospital, in their state-of-the-art pediatric cancer ward and outpatient clinic. Many of the patients I and family interacted with at the clinic during her course of treatment were Palestinians from Jerusalem, Ramallah and area villages.

On one day’s chemotherapy session, I had my camera with me and recorded this:…”

Until Muslims end the Jihad, peace will never come anywhere.

tanstaafl (jw) on April 12, 2010 at 2:10 pm

Atleast now the children are at peace, had they been cured and cared for allowed to grow to their majority only to become another suicide bomber years from now to further the muslim cause.

ARISHEM on April 12, 2010 at 2:22 pm

Loathsome. What else can you call it?

Worry01 on April 12, 2010 at 3:02 pm

my heart is heavy for the death of these 2 babies and for the deeply inbred hatred these people have for Jews….oh, and dont expect unbiased reports from AP, its heavily owned by a Saudi prince

harvK on April 12, 2010 at 3:22 pm

Mozlums and lives/health are an impossible combination. They neither live nor let live. When they have no regard for their mozzie lives (honor killing, other variants) would they think twice before taking lives of infidels for their “cause”?

“The Israelis–as is their humane and generous practice with even Islamic terrorist who try to blow them up–offered to treat the twins. If anyone would be able to successfully surgically detach them and/or treat the twins’ condition, it would be the Israelis.”

Indeed, in recent years Hadassa Hospital in Jerusalem has been repeatedly nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize because they are an island of caring and mutual respect. They treat everyone, have a staff composed of Jews, Christian and Muslim Arabs, including Palestinians from the territories who come to learn and practice. But no, the prize goes to losers and frauds like the IAEA and el Baradei, Al Gore and the IPCC, and Obama (ten days in office by nomination date).

And Israel’s medical teams don’t just serve locally. We saw them in action in Haiti, but their teams frequently make the rounds in Africa and Asia. Only a few months back a team of eye surgeons was in Vietnam, sharing their expertise and saving the sights of many.

The deep hatred in the Arab world for the Jews is so evil, twisted and tragic. Unfortunately, had the surgery been done in Israel, and the babies would not have survived the operation, then the Arab media would have accused Israel of killing them for their “organs” or something like that. You can’t win with them. The thought of Israel splitting their tiny speck of a country in two (a mere dot on a map in the middle east surrounded by vast amounts of Arab land), to share it with people with this kind of pathology is truly frightening and suicidal. The thought of the US government pressuring Israel to go ahead with this nonsense, fills me with sadness about the lack of moral clarity in our current leadership. May God help us!

The Arab fanatics’ (excuse the duplication) attitude is the same as that of their totalitarian mentor Hitler. He was more concerned about the Holocaust than he was about the German economy or even the German war effort. Just like the North Koreans are more concerned about their nuclear effort than about the welfare of their people. This is how subhuman totalitarians think; the liberal nitwits don’t understand this; if they ever do, they become conservatives.

Little Al on April 12, 2010 at 7:48 pm

From the histories that I have been taught or have read for myself, I have to conclude that the Muslims have wanted to erradicate the Jews for two thousand years or more.

What always amazes me is that some American President thinks that he can come along and broker a peace between them after a few talks.

That the Palestine people would allow, if not outright cause, the two innocent children to die, rather than accept the help of the Israelies, surprises me not. It is but one more symptom of the problems between them, and goes to help illustrate the depth of the hatred.

So very sad.

    Ummm, Islam has been around for about 1,500 years, not “over two thousand.” Important detail in establishing our legitimate claim to Jerusalem.

Frankly, I’m surprised you’re not cheering for two fewer Palestinians.

jj on April 12, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Frankly I’m surprised that you have the ability to actually use a computer and think at the same time…oh, wait.

Excellent post, Debbie. I can’t think of anything else to say that hasn’t already been said here.

JeffE on April 12, 2010 at 9:07 pm

Why go to Israel to do the separation? Huh?!

And after the separation, then … what?

Taking the poor babies back to Gaza with missing organs?…


Alexander Münch on April 12, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    If you’d really like to see a live case of Israeli organ harvesting, come here to Israel and say that.

Hello again, Debbie!

Indeed, Muslims will go so far as to let their own people die rather than accept help from those JOOOOOOOS. Back in 2003, an earthquake struck Bam, Iran, and the Iranian government decided to let tens of thousands of its own citizens die under the rubble rather than accept help from Israel.

Also, I don’t know if you’ve seen this video before, but it’s a classic (or at least it should be one, anyway)…

I usually don’t get involve in Political nor Religious articles unless there’s a hint of a Humanitarian issue. Clearly, the cost of what I have called ” The Great Religious War of Humanity ” has bore more priceless blood, esp with these 2 infants deaths. How much more blood will be shed before there’s Peace? I live in America and we are no different then what is happening in the Middle East. Although, at the present time, we don’t have Rockets flying everywhere in our cities but give it time and we will suffer like Israel! All HUMANS bleed the same color but yet we dislike ourselves because of our beliefs to the point of killing one another! When will it end ?

The late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir once said, “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”
This is what amazes me, being a mother of five children. I have carried them, changed diapers, fixed their wounds. In all this it’s to make sure they are safe!!! To make sure I can do everything to protect their life. So call me the crazy one !!!
It is well known that Israel has always offered care to those in Gaza.(Well known to those that take the time to really find out) That’s the difference between Israel and its neighbors, they choose to be a good Samaritan. They choose to do what is right even when they have been wronged. Israel loves her children!!!! Israel loves her children enough to put in bomb shelters all over the place. Where those in the Gaza are forced to sit in a house that the Israeli’s have called to tell them to evacuate and wait to be bombed. How can a mother sit in there with her babies and do that?
I truly wonder what that mother was told about Israel not allowing her babies to go to Israel, what lies was she fed? How can you live in that and not “see” the truth?
Today that love for my children I see as one of the greatest gifts I have ever received. It is my job to protect it and I will continue in it.
I love my job!!

My religious beliefs say that these babies are in heaven, face to face with the Lord, for eternity.
