Chief “Palestinian” Negotiator Saeb Erekat is on a ventilator in Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem and his organs are failing. He’s got COVID-19, and he’s got it bad. Erekat is a lung transplant recipient, so was especially vulnerable to a more serious case. The family has been called to say goodbye.
Mature people can understand why Israel, when approached to treat this man, a part of a terrorist regime, not only agreed, but is giving him expensive, state of the art treatment. Others, however, are less forgiving, with many ordinary Israelis complaining about Israel saving the life of a terrorist. You can see them in op-eds and social media wishing aloud for Erekat’s imminent and they hope, painful death.
