I wish Mr. Burston's argument was true. That it behooved the right to let cancer patients receive care. It is a moral argument. As I said yesterday, politics has no morality. But a simple Google search shows very few Western papers even carried this article. I did not see one mention in the mainstream American press. This unknown act could hardly hurt the right. Call me a pessimist, but I think Avigdor and his ilk have a carte blanche for their proposed plans. I doubt anyone will do more than comment from the West. That is how much Arabs have been de-humanized in the US, and less so in Europe. I appreciate the writer's intentions; I wish I had faith in the truth of his words.
