Jewish and Palestinian women are segregated in Israeli maternity wards — Chomsky

Israel/Palestine
on 54 Comments

Noam Chomsky:

There are some things that are going on that really shock me. I learned recently from Ruchama Marton, a wonderful woman who is the head of the Israel Physicians for Human Rights organization, and you probably know this, that in Israeli hospitals, in maternity wards, Palestinian women citizens have to go to different wards than the Jewish women…. Things like that go on all the time.

The statement appears in Chomsky’s new book On Palestine, written with Ilan Pappe and Frank Barat and published by Haymarket. I reached out to Physicians for Human Rights yesterday for elaboration about the practice and am awaiting a response.

Update: Commenter a blah chick has provided documentation of the practice from the Israeli press, in comment section below. I’m grateful for her/his help.

    what a bunch of BS. And how do these wards segregate the Palestinian MDs who treat both Jews and Arabs in the same wards? It doesn’t even make logical sense since the entire system is integrated with doctors, nurses and patients of all stripes.

      In Israeli hospitals, Jewish and Arab patients are treated equally — and even save each other’s lives. Read at http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2013/06/crossover-transplantation-israelis-palestinians.html##ixzz3XZp3OIfY 

      This kind of post by Philip aims solely at being divisive; it is just about digging for dirt to chuck at Israel and is nothing more than slander. All hospitals is a false propaganda catch cry.

      Read more at http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/11/world/middleeast/11iht-letter11.html
      about Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem particularly where “it is the hospital’s policy to treat patients equally regardless of their religious or ethnic background.”

      You will never hear of any Arab hospital that would be even willing to take a Jew as a patient.

        I find it interesting that one of the articles you cite manages to discuss transplants without mentioning the name “Yehuda Hiss.” Funny that.

        As for an Arab hospital not taking Jewish patients I have to ask (1) are there any in Israel? (2) do they discriminate against Jews? (3) Would an Israeli Jew even go to one?

        Interesting little article I recalled from a couple of years ago is somewhat related:

        “Jewish women can’t volunteer at night – to avoid ‘contact with Arabs’

        The Israeli government succumbs to pressure by racist and anti-miscegenation organizations, banning Jewish women from volunteering in hospitals at night, when they might be more likely to encounter Arab workers and doctors.

        Young Israeli women volunteering at hospitals in Israel as part of their national service (an alternative to serving in the Israel Defense Forces) will no longer be allowed to do night shifts in order to avoid any contact with Arabs, Channel 10 reported Wednesday (Hebrew).

        The director of Israel’s National Service Administration, Sar-Shalom Jerbi, issued a directive two weeks ago banning any volunteer shifts past 9:00 p.m.: “We reached the decision based on concern for our volunteers, and Minister [Naftali] Bennett gave his blessing.”

        According to the report, the decision was made following a pressure campaign waged by religious Zionist rabbis, among them notorious Kiryat Arba Rabbi Dov Lior (arrested in 2011 for incitement against Arabs and for legitimizing the killing of non-Jews in war time) and the radical Israeli anti-miscegenation organization Lehava. They began the campaign over the last year after hearing reports of “intimate relations” between some of the Palestinian-Arab doctors and the Israeli Jewish volunteers.

        The decision was not sharp enough for Lehava, however, according to a statement issued by its director: “Unfortunately, this is too narrow and too late a step. National service should be terminated anywhere there are goyim [non-Jews].”…”

        i am sure in the US segregation is not policy or legal but it occurs as well. i would even guess that some people voluntarily segregate themselves into groups without any policy being in place.

        this is just the tactics of trash journalism-sensationalism of the rare exception and not the actual. if MW wanted to do a piece on general conditions in Israeli hospitals and mention that some hospitals segregate maternity patients and only sometimes-it wouldn’t be so objectionable. there is plenty to criticize about Israel w/o resorting to hysterical by-lines and out-of-touch charges

        and my point about the physicians is who is doing the supposed segregating ? the physicians? which physicians? druze,muslim, christian, jewish?

      Give it a rest dabaker.Segregation is rife in Israel –even against felloe Jewish Israelis.Not surprising at all that the same racist ideology is applied against Arab Israelis.

      “When the children of south Tel Aviv head back to school on Tuesday, kindergarteners will attend facilities that are segregated by race. The children of asylum seekers from sub-Saharan Africa will go to their kindergartens and all the other kids will go to their own. As of this year, the municipality of Israel’s most liberal city decided that separate-but-equal for three-to-six year olds was the way to go—in 2013.

      According to a report published by Ynet (Hebrew edition), the city built the new preschools for black children after Jewish-Israeli residents of the inner city area threatened to keep their children at home rather than allow them to learn how to count, fingerpaint and play on the swings alongside their peers from Eritrea and Sudan.” The daily beast.

    “I reached out to Physicians for Human Rights yesterday for elaboration about the practice and am awaiting a response.”

    Well here’s an article from 2006 that was in Haaretz: “Galilee maternity wards keep Arab and Jewish new moms apart
    By Eli Ashkenazi Jan. 2, 2006

    “Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya maintains that separating Jewish and Arab new mothers is not a matter of policy, but rather reflects the desire of the mothers themselves, who ask to be in rooms with women who speak their language.”

    But apparently it is not always up to the mothers:

    “Jalal Bana, a communications consultant from Acre, had a similar experience a year ago when he came with his wife Ramia to give birth. …”The department has two sections. I saw spacious rooms on the right with one or two beds, and on the left, it was much more crowded. They put my wife on the left. I saw there were empty beds on the right. Only after an argument did Ramia get one of the spacious rooms.”

    Here’s another article from JPost Feb 28 2012: “MKs denounce segregation in maternity wards”

    “There is no place for separating hospital patients on ethnic, racial or religious grounds, Dr. Michael Dor, head of the Health Ministry’s general medical branch, told a session of the Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee on Monday.

    The meeting was held at the initiative of Labor MK Ghaleb Majadle, who was upset by reports that such unofficial segregation in obstetrics wards is taking place at the women’s request. ”

    The article then quotes one Dr. Benny Davidson of the Association of Hospital Directors who said “We try to meet requests of new mothers if possible. But the phenomenon of segregating them by nationality does not exist and has no significance.”

    Translation: segregation may not be official policy but we go along with it until someone complains loud enough or we get caught.

    Phil, I continue to say that you should write a book on the media and the total silence on Jewish apartheid. This would never go unreported if whites & blacks had to go to seperate maternity wards in the UK for example.

    There have been tons of books about the conflict on the ground – and that’s needed – but little to nothing written about the reasons for the complicity in silence in America in particular, and especially in the media.

    One thing I find most interesting is that the “pro-Israel” posters seemingly apologize for documented racist actions on the part of Israeli society or gov’t. I would think they would be smart enough to acknowledge what is alleged if it will come out anyway and be documented beyond doubt, and say, “true, we can do better” or “this should be fixed, and so and so will be notified”. This seems to confirm that Israel boosters are not interested in making their society more just or inclusive. That puts them at odds with American Jews and Americans in general, and the (fictional) image of a “democratic” Israel.

    Anyway, it’s obvious why they do this. They would not want even the possibility of a mix up where Isr./Pal babies are switched at birth like in the movie THE OTHER SON. You could risk the possibility of a baby with Israeli background being raised in a Muslim home, brought up in Islam/Christianity, treated as a Palestinian Arab / second class citizen by Israeli society and its law enforcement, etc. That should not be allowed to happen.

      And the excellent book, _Esther’s Boy_. We Jews and Palestinians are so similar in many ways, mixups probably have happened. BUT, a) why is this “worse” than mixing up two babies of the same ethnic background; and b) segregating mothers isn’t the point unless the babies are also segregated in the nursery. I wonder if this is also the case.

        Maxine,

        The problem with (a) mixing up the babies is that it creates the prince and the pauper “tragedy”. The children in the Prince and the Pauper analogy have the same ethnicity, but due to noble birth, one is selected to rule the land and the people in it. Palestinians and Israelis very often do have the same ethnicity. There are many cases of Jews and Arabs converting to eachother’s religions over the centuries and interbreeding. However, in the Israeli ideology, one cultural-religious community is the “rightful” owner of the land and thus those of “correct” birth must be kept separate from those who are born to be the ruled/dispossessed. That’s the ideology. If you are Israeli, then God or the Balfour declaration or history has made you the “rightful” ruler of the land and your state must be dedicated to your group alone, after which over 50 laws have been imposed that separate you from the other groups who are ruled.

    Kissing and making up? After all the insults, disrespect, and arrogance, shown lately:

    “Vice President Joe Biden will attend Israel’s Independence Day event in Washington, D.C.

    Biden’s attendance was announced Thursday on the official Twitter account of Israel’s ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, and in an emailed release to media.

    “I am honored to host @VP Biden at Israel’s Independence Day event in Washington, D.C. on April 23rd,” wrote Dermer.

    In the media release, Dermer’s statement suggested efforts to reconcile the governments after a period of tensions over disagreement about the Iran nuclear talks.

    “I look forward to having the opportunity to express Israel’s appreciation for the support that the Obama Administration has given to Israel over the past six years and to reaffirm the great friendship between Israel and the United States,” Dermer said.

    I know that this very good article is about racism in Israeli hospitals, but what happens to Palestinian children and families when they are finally born?

    DCI- Palestine has just come out with a report that will chill your soul. I read it yesterday:

    http://www.dci-palestine.org/sites/default/files/operationprotectiveedge.awarwagedonchildren.160415.pdf

    Rania Khalek has done it justice @ EI:

    “Israel deliberately targeted children in Gaza last summer, according to a new report by Defence for Children International-Palestine (DCI-Palestine).

    Of the 2,220 Palestinians killed during Israel’s 51-day bombing campaign, at least 1,492 were civilians, including at least 547 children.

    A total of 535 of those children were killed as a direct result of Israeli attacks. Moreover, 68 percent of children Israel killed in Gaza were under the age of twelve, according to the report.

    An additional 3,374 children were injured, including over 1,000 who have been left with lifelong disabilities, many of which require medical care that is inaccessible in Gaza due to a crushing Israeli siege that has yet to be lifted. Another 373,000 children are suffering from deep trauma and require desperately needed psychosocial support that is severely lacking in the Gaza Strip.

    Nowhere was safe for children

    As a matter of policy, Israel deliberately and indiscriminately targeted the very spaces where children are supposed to feel most secure. Such acts violate international law and amount to war crimes, according to the report.

    Children were crushed to death while they sheltered in their homes, dismembered as they slept in their beds and torn to pieces as they played in their yards. At least eighteen children were killed by Israeli attacks targeting schools. For the children of Gaza, nowhere was safe from Israeli violence.

    Equally as haunting as where children were killed is the assortment of weapons Israel deployed against them. …”

      “Is this policy based on the differences in plumbing or (ahem) the other issue?”

      Well, if they don’t tell us what la difference is, we’ll never know.

      Sort of reminds me of the time that psychiatrist insisted on showing me all those pornographic ink-blots, and made me describe in detail what was going on in them! That shrink was obsessed with sex.

    Since 1948, over 700 Jewish communities have been established inside Israel’s pre-67 borders – but only 7 for Palestinian citizens (and those in order to concentrate the Bedouin population in the Negev).
    http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2012/10/20121027145235386715.html

    There are more than 50 Israeli laws that discriminate against Palestinian citizens of Israel in all areas of life, including their rights to political participation, access to land, education, state budget resources, and criminal procedures.
