Israel has another tool. Deny Palestinians dying of cancer their treatment.

Lately, Israel has been denying healthcare for Palestinian Arabs dying of cancer.  The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) strongly condemns this practice, which is demonstrated in this case of a 21 year old man denied passage into Israel as he died of metastatic testicular cancer.  In general, this is a fairly treatable disease, even when it is metastatic.  In essence, Israel condemned this man and several others like him, to death.

Lawrence of Cyberia also writes eloquently as usual about this issue.  He writes about others who have died waiting for treatment and goes into other reasons that Palestinian healthcare is subpar.  Most of those reasons have to do with the occupation and sinister Israeli physicians.
