No offense to people who suffer from being cross eyed but I have to wonder if some people don’t suffer from a more serious malady that could well be dubbed cross-eyed-thinking. I’m referring to the Palestinian chief negotiator’s demand that Israel provide him with a lung transplant! In my own limited way of thinking I can’t help but wonder how you can call for the demise – total destruction – of a nation and a people and then demand that same people provide you with a lung transplant! This doesn’t compute, but then…none of the Palestinian Authority theology computes in my mind.
Saeb Erekat, 62, is ill. In fact, this ‘Top PA Official’ is very sick. He was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis over a year ago and is currently taking medication for that; however, it seems that the effect of the medicine is lessening. Pulmonary fibrosis is a lung disease that occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged, scars and becomes thick, making it difficult for the lungs to work properly. Usually the doctors don’t know the cause. However, the patient’s ability to breathe becomes progressively more difficult as the condition persists. In Erekat’s condition, a lung transplant is being recommended.
In order for a lung transplant to happen, there has to be donor that is compatible. Hmmm. Wonder where he’ll find a donor. Wouldn’t it be a kicker – an Israeli-hating-Palestinian accepting the lungs of a Jew in order to continue to breathe. Is that something he would find acceptable? The lungs of a Jew in the chest of a Palestinian? Would that change his outlook on Israel? Would he soften his demands against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyhu whom he calls Benzion Netanyhu as a direct in-your-face insult to his father, whose name was actually Ben-Zion, (son of Zion).
How would that happen? Would a Pro-Palestinian Muslim be willing to kill a Jew for Erekat so that there could be a lung transfer? Allegedly the attacks on the Jews at the hands of the Muslim murderers is for Allah! Would one of them do it for Erekat? How would they know which Jew would be the donor? Would they just keep killing Jews until they finally get a donor?
And what about the Jew? Since he – or she – would be dead in order to make the transfer, then we should ask “what about their family”? Can you imagine what kind of compassion would be required for the family of a recently murdered Jew – one that was murdered at the hands of a Muslim – have in order to agree to the transplant of the lungs of their loved one to the very one that hates Israel? Is that even possible?
No one really knows the answer to that. What we do know is that Erekat is sick and in need of a lung transplant. He alleges that it is up to Israel to provide him with one. Really? Israel should do this? And what about all of the Jews that are waiting for a lung transplant? I have a hard time wrapping my head around this possibility.
Perhaps it is time for the Palestinians to quit hating and killing and putting their resources into annihilating Jews and start putting their resources into building medical facilities in Gaza. Perhaps then, and maybe then, they could hire doctors and medical teams with the skills to make such a transplant. Yep. That could happen.
But then, where would they get the donor?
