Only Israel would do something like this...

A great story you probably won't see on the CBC...
A 6-year-old Palestinian boy whose powerful relative was assassinated by Israel during its recently ended offensive in the Gaza Strip has checked into an Israeli hospital for life-saving heart surgery.

Abdullah Siam was brought to Wolfson Medical Center near Tel Aviv on Tuesday to repair a hole in his heart through Save a Child's Heart, an Israel-based project that treats children suffering from cardiac problems in conflict zones or areas where medical facilities are below par.

Nearly half of the 2,100 children who have been treated since the project was launched in 1996 have been Palestinian, including 600 from Gaza, the group says. The program has survived the hostilities between Hamas-ruled Gaza and the Jewish state, including the devastating three-week war that ended on Jan. 18.

Save a Child's Heart has worked with children from Gaza through the years when Palestinian militants were blowing up Israeli buses and is "treating them when Gaza is now bad," Dr. Lior Sasson, head of cardiothoracic surgery at Wolfson, said Wednesday. "We will continue to do it because what we believe is that a kid is a kid is a kid and needs to be treated regardless (of) the political situation."

If the shoe were on the other foot, and it was Israeli kids in Palestinian hands, they'd just cut their throats.
