The article talks about a health issue and people from both sides and jumping in to give their apparent ill-informed opinions. I am an Israeli Arab, and I would like to make the following points: 1) There is NO discrimination when it comes to access to health services in Israel. One can argue that Arabs might have to travel a bit farther but only in rare cases and the traveled distance is not that far (It's a small country!) 2) Israeli Arabs know all about preventive medicine, and the medical services make it easy for all Israelis to undergo diagnostic tests and getting 2nd opinions. 3) Arabs have no "social" or "religious" attitudes against seeking medical care. As a matter of fact, the dream of many families is to send their kids to medical schools. 4) Many doctors and nurses in Israeli Hospitals are Arabs. Haaretz had many articles about Arab doctors giving wounded soldiers the best emergency care. Please don't jump right into a discussion before getting the facts!
