    The majority of Israelis are Jewish in one form or another and most Jews because of their Religious beliefs do not believe in Organ Donation. Jewish People who believe this way are not the only people who believe this way for Religious reasons by a long way however, Israel does have a large concentration of Jews as you would of course expect and that is exactly why it is problem. Having said that, I do not think that gives unscrupilious organ harvesters, doctors, or any other participants, Jewish or any other religion the right to go out and buy an organ for $10,000 from a poor man to sell to a rich one for $200,000 for the gift of life. Do you think you would look better bring the poor man to Israel and his family well, pay him the his, travel costs, his health care, make sure he is healthy when he leaves and pay him $100,000 to face his future in his homeland with one less kidney. How good both Israel and the Jewish Person who needed that Kidney would look. No longer would Israelis be organ traffickers, but a Country who truly cared not only for its own Jewish People, but for non-Jewish People willing to come to Israel to supply the organ to save an Israeli and Israel will see it is done safely and as humanely and kindly and with as much dignity to both people as possible.
