In Dubai, they'd rather die than change

In Dubai, they have their priorities. It is far more important to keep Jews - or at least Israelis - out of the country than it is to save lives. And so, at the last minute, 12 Jewish and Arab Israeli cardiologists have been banned from attending a conference of over 12,000 cardiologists that is taking place in the island paradise this week. What's worse, the tourist industry will not refund more than $500 - if that - from the more than $3,000 apiece that the Israeli cardiologists paid to attend.
Only a couple of Israelis – one from the Rabin Medical Center and the other from Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center – who had been invited to lecture at the conference were allowed to attend and did so.

The Jerusalem Post learned on Tuesday that the would-be participants – Jews and Arabs – paid $3,000 each for their flights, visas, hotels and attendance at the conference.

Dr. Abed Khaskia of the cardiology department at Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba said he was told that only if someone else occupied his room would he get $500 back but that he would not be reimbursed for the rest of the money. He blamed the Geneva-based World Heart Federation, which he said had promised to send a visa two weeks before the event, for the problem.

There was no discrimination between Jewish and Arab Israelis, said Prof. Chaim Lotan, head of cardiology at Hadassah University Medical Center, who had been involved in negotiations with the federation but did not attend because the Israel Heart Society had its own conference here during the same week.

Lotan told the Post that he was promised the federation would do all it could to ensure that all Israelis – participants as well as lecturers – be given a visa to enter Dubai.

“Those who actually did attend did not have an easy time,” Lotan said. “They weren’t allowed to leave the hotel, and their visas were held during their visit. Apparently, the government of Dubai did not want Israelis there.”
Priorities, man, priorities!

Let ALL the enemies of Israel and Jew-haters die!
Israel should not allow her medical and generally scientific discoveries to be used by her enemies.
Let them boycott & die shouting (the true meaning of BDS). It will be what Darwing would have called "natural selection of the idiots".

The two who were allowed should have refused in protest! Otherwise how will these situations change? Stupid Jews!!

Apparently Dubai would rather their citizens with cardiac problems be treated by witch doctors than by doctors having benefited from Israeli cardiologists with state-of-the-art cardiac medical knowledge.

Classic example of Arab backwardness and ignorance. Classic example also of how hatred damages first the hater.

Let this be a lesson to them. They should have never attempted to attend. And in the future we would all be better served if we ensured that there is no, literally zero medical technology in Dubai that was developed by Israel or in Israel or was the product of any intellectual capital derived from any Israeli and Jew in the world.
