Ashkelon, Our Sister City's Barzalai Hospital

"Ashkelon’s Barzilai Medical Center even tends to those wounded in inter-factional fighting in the Gaza Strip. “Everyone receives the same treatment in the same wards, regardless of ethnic origin or nationality,” said Dr. Ron Lobel, the hospital's medical director. “We deliver the service equally, whether [patients] come from Gaza or … Sderot.“ "

I am so proud of Israel. When we have the enemy come to us when injured, we take them into our hospitals. All life is important. That's why it hurts us when innocent civilians are used as shields in attacks. It's not our goal in life to take theirs.

Someday the Palestinian people will recognize that we are neighbors to have and not to have not.
