Israel Saving Arab Lives
Israeli Hospital Saves Palestinian Boy from West Bank
15-year-old Muhammed Kalalwe was working in his family's fields in Jenin in the northern West Bank when he saw a deadly viper snake that bit his right palm.
The boy's father, Hafed, rushed him to Jenin Hospital, but they had no anti-serum, so they sent him by ambulance to the Emek Medical Center in Afula.
Hafed later related that he was genuinely afraid to be taken to Israel because he was sure that they would be ignored. At the hospital both the father and son were immediately greeted in Arabic and rushed into the ER where the multi-ethnic staff administered life-saving anti-serum and brought the boy back from the brink of death.
The boy's father later said, "Our people do not know the truth about you....My son and I are not the same as we were before this happened and I will share this with my family and friends. May Allah bless all of you."
