An Israeli rabbi incites Israeli doctors not to treat non-Jewish patients on Saturdays


Paper and electronic journals reported a story which says that the Israeli Rabbi, Ovadia Yosef, incited, in a religious lecture he made recently before Zionist doctors, on not offering treatment to any non-Jewish patient on Saturdays, implicitly suggesting not treating the Palestinian patients.

Dimitri Diliani, a member of Fatah Movement’s Revolutionary Council, said that Ovadia Yosef, the spiritual leader of Shas movement which occupies 11 seats in the Israeli Knesset, is encouraging killing the non-Jewish patients, by forbidding the Jewish doctors from treating whoever is not a Jew on Saturdays.

In a press conference held earlier on Sunday, May 20, 2012, Diliani said that the most recent fanatic Fatwa by Ovadia Yosef was issued last week during a religious lesson given to religious Jewish doctors, in which he said, for example, that in case a non-Jew was injured in a car accident and was admitted to the hospital on Saturday, the Israeli doctors should not treat him, for the Torah prevents violating the teachings of Sabbath.

Diliani emphasized such a fanaticism that is void of any humanity made Yosef agree only on treating the Jews on Saturdays, confirming that the fanatic spirit of a spiritual political leader is manifested daily by the aggressive practices of the occupation against the Palestinian people.


History has never witnessed, throughout time, more extreme feelings of hatred towards Islam and Muslims than those of the Jews. The Jews are the ones who accused the prophets of lying and killed the messengers, and it is them who broke the vows and violated the covenants. It is them who occupied the land and displaced Allah’s servants. It is them whom America took on itself protecting ad supporting them to destroy Islam and Muslims… The increase we are witnessing nowadays in the Fatwas of hate and enmity issued by the Zionist rabbis only brings out the aggressive mentality of the Zionist Jews and their hostile view towards Islam and Muslims in particular, and towards humanity in general, for they hold no respect or value to the humanity of a non-Jew.

On the racism of the Jews, His Eminence, the late Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra), says: “The entire world should realize the magnitude of the racist crimes practiced by Israel, and the Arabs and Muslims should expose its crimes and massacres in every international forum, and not turn their backs on their nation’s issues or focus their efforts on prosecuting those who are willing to sacrifice themselves for the sake of helping the oppressed and besieged Palestinian people.

The Arab countries – if they are true to themselves and to their Islamic and national commitments – should reveal to the world that the biggest enemy against Semitism is Israel that is persecuting the Arabs who are Semites, and that enjoys the support of the entire world…

On the importance of supporting the Palestinian cause, His Eminence (ra) says: “Facing the challenges should start by insisting on supporting the Palestinian cause and keeping it alive in the reality and revealing to the entire world the true image of the Jews as they are mentioned in the Quran that described them as the enemies of those who believed [in Allah] and the entire humanity due to their innate racist mentality.
