Mixing Science and Politics Brews Hate


It's bad enough that Israeli doctors are spending their lives in emergency rooms treating Jewish and Arab victims of suicide bombers.

We arrived at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, where some 2,000 victims have been treated during the current intifada, less than 24 hours after a particularly horrific bus bombing in Jerusalem. Hours earlier, teams of Jewish-Arab doctors had done what they've done for the past two years: jumped into action to save the lives of the critically injured.
