When Israeli Medical Care Pays For Anti-Israeli Terrorism
Gur Mintzer, Israeli CEO of Care Medical Services, is not shy about showing how his allegiance is to Arabs who now call themselves Palestinians rather than to his own people. He used some of the millions he made by selling off his European holdings in the company to pay for Ahed Tamimi’s defence and then was there to greet her when she arrived home after her release from prison.
He did not sell his Israeli clinics. And these clinics apparently work together with the regular Israeli health funds — health funds that are supported by our taxes. His official business Facebook page shows nothing of his politics, but a Facebook page showcasing his views was set up by someone else. It shows, for example, how he hung a “Palestinian” flag from his balcony on Israel’s Remembrance Day for our fallen soldiers, in spite of having been asked not to by neighbours:
On his own private Facebook page he expresses himself openly. , Gur Mintzer calls himself a politician — his party is Meretz — will we see him in the Knesset one day? He certainly has enough money to run a campaign (or two or three). Let us see what up uploads publicly. Here is one post:
The fire of revolt and revenge in Gaza will not be forgotten until the prison walls are opened once more and in Gaza there will be an independent Palestinian state like all other states.
Large nations such as ours did not successfully extinguish the rebellions of oppressed minorities — except those that committed horrific war crimes, crimes that stained these nations for a long time.
Do we want to commit genocide in Gaza in order to quiet the pitiful kites and stand at the head of the list of contemporary war criminals?
Why do we not try to release her prisoners, open her borders to the world, let flow into her food, electricity, water, and plentiful means for rehabilitation, to let her residents find employment in Israel and to begin a courageous peace negotiation such as befitting a generous victor over the conquered.
Freedom and peace for Gaza — now!
He narrated a video of Ahed’s homecoming and I wonder if he noticed someone standing near him and Ahed wearing a shirt illustrating exactly what the Arabs consider Israeli occupation to consist of — all of Israel.
And here is just one more post on his page:
I had the honour and the privilege to participate in the coming home party for Ahed, the Palestinian Jean d’Arc. Her family, fellow villagers and comrades in the fight from all across the West Bank received her, their faces expressing their suffering and hardships under the occupation. Their faces expressing happiness together with sadness, honour and nobility. They know that her release is only temporary. The occupation persists in every corner of their lives, in their arrests, in their nights and in their deaths.
This young girl’s fight is only beginning, the occupation forces are liable to visit her in the dead of night, any night, she will be arrested again, will be interrogated, will be psychologically tortured, her brothers and cousins will yet be humiliated, tortured and imprisoned, perhaps, God forbid, will be shot and injured like 21 of her family members, persistent freedom fighters that they are.
But the occupation, the oppression and the apartheid regime will not overcome and win out. The odour of the defeat of the occupiers is already in the air, they are already arresting people for thoughts and dangerous ideologies, victory will soon be here and whatever will be, we will be by your side.
Justice will win in the end! The principles of freedom and justice are on your side. Bear the miracle of rebellion, Ahed the Brave.
I find the level of hatred toward his own people to be incomprehensible, even though I have already seen the same up close in the person of Uri Davis. Perhaps Mintzer should do what Uri eventually did — convert to Islam and serve in the Parliament of the Palestinian Authority.
I do not know what you think, but I can barely stomach this. I certainly do not want my contributions to my health fund to find their way into Gur Mintzer’s pocket even if it is only grushim (old Israeli coin that has no value today). Dare I say it? We should be boycotting Gur Mintzer’s Care Medical Services.
