Jerusalem - New Rules Require Israeli Medics To Treat Terrorists Before Victims If Injuries Are More Severe

Jerusalem - A new directive issued by the Israeli Medical Association (IMA) this week now stipulates that Israeli medics must treat wounded at terror sites solely on the basis of the severity of their injuries, and that possibly means treating attackers before victims.

TIMESOFISRAEL.com (http://bit.ly/1mok4M3) reports that the new rule which was implemented this week and replaces the old guidelines stipulating that wounded be treated based on the philosophy that “charity begins at home”—-came about following a meeting last week at which doctors with Physicians for Human Rights argued that current

Israeli policy contradicted widely followed medical ethics and international humanitarian laws.

Reps for the IMA said that the change in policy was purposely implemented without any official public announcement due to fear of
backlash amid the current spree of stabbing attacks in Israel.

Obviously, the goal is to preserve life. Further, at a crime scene there is a great possibility of mistaking terrorists for victims. That poor man who was beaten at a bus station comes to mind.

Have the medics patch everyone up and let the authorities sort them out.

So now the guards have to make sure to kill the attackers so that the victims can get proper treatment.

This is insane !!!
Imagine laying bleeding on the street after a terrorist stabbed you and then having to watch the first responders treat him first. You are wrenching in pain, and they walk right past you to treat the bum. Are we crazy people???
What is Israel scared of ?
Why does it have to follow the rest of the world. Israel is different as it has to live with these animal in their mist while other countries don't. I think Israel should DENY terrorist medical care .You want to come stab and kill someone you are on your own. That is how you deter them

In your eyes it’s ok to behave like a savage and just kill someone because you are the Judge, jury and executioner.

The Israeli left way of thinking is as follows, There are over a billion muslims in the world, and we better show them how nice and humane are we to them, As far as Jewish lived are concerned, just in recent history 6 million were killed, and nothing will happen if a few more join them,

Obviously you are trying to appear to be a wise and advanced thinker. Sorry, it's not working. It is almost always apparent to the first responders who is the terrorist and the priority should be to save JEWISH lives. Although darkei shalom and worries about eivah play a role in this halachic discussion, we can not leave that for the MDA to decide. It is pretty clear that those issues do not apply here and therefore the terrorist can and should be left to die if that would be the result of treating Jewish patients who are also in a safek pikuach nefesh - even if the terrorist is in more danger than the Jew.

This is an insane policy; charity begins at home. If the terrorists know in advance that they will be left to die like dogs on the street, without any medical assistance, then they might think twice about attacking Jews. There have been cases whereby terrorists were given medical assistance, and then went on to attack medical personnel in the hospital. They are vile, dangerous creatures, who must be put out of their misery. Incidentally, Paul in Saudi, who is a gentile, really irks me with his biased remarks. In his adopted country, people are beheaded, and also have their hands chopped off. Also, the religious police follow people all over the place. Why doesn't Paul in Saudi criticize his friends within Saudi, in a local newspaper, as he does on this site?

There was once a 14 year old boy on trial for murdering both his parents. He was found guilty and on his sentencing date he asked the court to have mercy on him because he is an orphan.

I don't live in Israel - I live in Chelm. Think for a moment, all you bleeding heart liberals: Terrorists want to kill and maim us. Their goal is to inflict as much misery and pain as possible, not just to the victims directly, but to all of us. And the IMA says they come first, before innocent victims??? Are these bureaucrats so out of touch? Let the attackers bleed to death. Only problem is, there aren't enough virgins in their version of heaven to go round.

Joe - I think you are the one who is savage, and here's why.
If you come across 2 wounded people, an innocent person and a low life terrorist and you treat the terrorist first and let his victim lay there bleeding in pain, there are 2 savages at the scene........You and the terrorist.
If you don't understand why , I am really sorry for you

Amen to that!!!! Israel has the most self hating leaders in the world! Do they think the UN and Obama are now going to laud Israel for being so humanitarian that they're going to protect the lives of the terrorists seeking to destroy them?! IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!! Israel citizens should be out protesting this horro!!!!

And you forgot, "if we'll treat the nice terrorists before our own Israeli citizens, surely then the UN and Obama will start to love us!"

?Did "Physicians for Human Rights" have any comments for the PLO & the IRC when the Red Crescent ambulance medics REFUSED to assist victims of a stabbing-attack because the victims happened to be Jewish?
