Hospitals in Gaza? No Such Thing!
By Shimon Apisdorf
Let’s be clear.
There is no siege on any hospital in Gaza. None.
No Such Thing!
So All Those Videos Are Lying?
There are, however, sieges on major Hamas command and control centers.
Centers where detailed plans were developed over more than a year, and launched on Shabbat, October 7th, with the goal of slaughtering, beheading, and kidnapping children.
Centers from which the order went out on Shabbat, October 7th, to gang rape women, burn mothers, fathers, and their children alive, and kidnap infants, pregnant women, and grandmothers.
There are sieges on large weapons and ammunition storage areas in Gaza.
There are sieges on Hamas headquarters in Gaza. Hamas, an organization whose charter calls for the total annihilation of Israel and its Jews. Hamas, whose charter says that any country or authority that makes any sort of peace with Israel is a treacherous traitor to the great Islamic goal of Jihad.
Hospital Siege in Gaza?
There are no sieges on hospitals in Gaza.
There is a siege on the very heart of the Hamas military-terror leadership.
A siege on the heart of Hamas military-terror capabilities.
A siege that will hopefully end the beating hearts of every Hamas leader, battalion commander, and “freedom fighter.”
So yes. There are sieges.
Sieges on the most critical operational and communication assets that Hamas has, each of which has one purpose, and one purpose only: the barbaric, inhumane, torture, slaughter, and kidnapping of Jewish men, women, and children.
And all those command centers, all those enormous weapons storage facilities, all those operational assets, have been built beneath hospitals.
These aren’t mere “tunnels” that a handful of guys with shovels dug one day. No! These under-hospital terror centers were all major infrastructure projects that required professional architects and contractors, hundreds of skilled construction workers, and hundreds of millions of dollars to build.
But What About the Patients in Those Hospitals?
Over all those years that these military-terror projects were being executed beneath hospitals, did even one Hippocratic Oath taking doctor ever make his or her voice heard in protest? Did even one nurse with a conscience make even one clandestine social media video protesting the fact that the babies in her neo-natal unit were destined to be used as human shields? Did one medical director or hospital administrator quietly pass information to the Red Cross, CNN, BBC, Congressional folks like Rashida Talib and Ilhan Omar, or Amnesty International?
Not one. Not ever.
Which makes those “first do no harm” doctors, nurses, and medical professional’s accomplices in the heinous crimes against humanity that Hamas has been carefully planning, right under their noses, and right under their hospitals, for years.
Cruel Israeli Hospital Siege in Gaza?
In memory of David Newman. Dovid Yair Shalom Neman ben Chaya and Moshe Meir.
Last seen by Noam, his wife-to-be, as a Hamas beast shot him at point-blank range.
And in honor of David’s dear friends who, two days after the October 7th slaughter, launched Soldiers Save Lives in tribute to David. Friends that have devoted every day since then to one singular mission, saving lives. You know, the sort of mission that hospitals are supposed to be all about.
