Gazan swine flu victims flown to Israel....

Where else would they go to???
Five Palestinians from the Gaza Strip were evacuated to Israeli hospitals on Monday out of fear that they had contracted the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu.

Their evacuation was coordinated by the IDF's Gaza Coordination and Liaison Administration.

Officials said that one of the five, a Palestinian doctor, had already tested positive and that the other four were undergoing tests to confirm the diagnosis. The CLA has also coordinated the transfer of 10,000 vaccinations to the Gaza Strip.

A Palestinian woman in Gaza died of swine flu on Sunday, the first fatality from the virus reported in the district.

The first five cases of the H1N1 virus had been diagnosed the previous day, Palestinian sources said.

Gaza has a shortage of the swine flu vaccine, with 1,000 doses for its 8,000 health-care workers, The Associated Press reported.

Palestinians told AP that the shortage is due to the problems between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, and not to Israel's blockade of the strip, which allows medical supplies to be shipped in.

In an amazing coincidence, their was a piece in the papers today about Palestinians being witheld treatment in Israeli hospitals unless they sign an agreement to become informants. That's illegal under the Geneva Convention. The list seems to grow when you look beneath the rocks doesn't it Fred.

Lucy...get a grip.

First, do you really believe everything you read?

Secondly, even if true, please tell me where in the Geneva Conventions a country like Israel has to treat ANY Gazans for anything? Afterall, they are at war.
