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.
