    The municipality of K.Bialik fled,leaving only the woman who collects payment of taxes in the office the entire war. There was noone available to answer any questions about evacuating children, or how to get medical supplies. In addition the Kupat Holim Clalit at Weiztman in K.Bialik also closed its doors for the entire war, forcing patients to scramble around to find doctors, and trying to find out how to get their perscriptions filled that could only be ordered through them. This was really upsetting for us left stranded here. It was fine for me to have to run back and forth to Rambam Hospital daily for radiation treatments during the entire war, but the kupat holim and municipality couldnot manage to even open an hour or two a day while it was quiet to help any of us, I was and still am very disapointed in how things were handled, better get your acts together before you get involved in another war!

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
