Palestinian Arabs in Gaza Being Deprived of Health Care

The medical system in Gaza has been paralyzed because of disputes between Hamas and Fatah.

It apparently started when Hamas arrested a prominent physician with ties to Fatah.

The Palestinian Authority being run by Mahmoud Abbas retaliated by ordering physicians to curtail their schedules in Gaza hospitals to three hours a day, forcing patients to go to private clinics.

Hamas retaliated by ordering the clinics to shut down immediately.

Palestinian Authority Information Minister Riad al-Malki said "Hamas is not interested in the quality of medical service." Clearly, neither is the Palestinian Authority.

Thus far, there have been no reports of any criticism from any of the activists who go into tirades every time Israel checks to make sure Palestinian Arab terrorists aren't transporting more bombs by ambulance.
