Israel must let Arab doctors work in Jerusalem hospitals
The situation where medical practitioners who studied in East Jerusalem are not allowed to work in the city's hospitals is absurd, discriminatory, and unacceptable; and it is up to Israel's new health minister to remedy it.
Jerusalem’s health care system suffers from a shortage of Arabic-speaking doctors and medical staff. Hospitals in East Jerusalem are desperate for doctors. Meanwhile some 60 doctors, 60 dentists and hundreds of lab technicians and physiotherapists have finished their medical school studies at the highest levels and are willing to fill these positions immediately.
