    Doctors are not known for being astute investors or having particularly well informed notions of history and politics. Doctors Without Borders fits the bill perfectly. I love it when I get solicited by these folks. The answer is a resounding no and my reason is the uninformed, anti-Israel, anti-semitic and anti-humantiarian stand that so many of them take on Israel. Jews are deserving of protection and those that try to take their lives quite appropriately expose themselves to risk of life, limb, hunger and deprivation. If the "good-doctors" don't get that, too bad for them. What I don't like is them trading off their humanitarian branding. They have no particular insights or knowledge and, insofar as their views of world politics, economics, policy, have zero insight. Insofar as they provide medical aid to those in need, they deserve cudos, so long as they are not discriminatory in selecting their patient populatoin.
