Israeli Doctors Are Treating Boston Bombing Suspect: New Details on His Condition

As 19-year-old Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev "clings to life," Israeli media revealed that two of the senior doctors treating Tsarnaev have abundant past experience treating victims of terror. That's because they're from Israel.
Dr. Kevin (Ilan) Tabb, president and CEO of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston told the Israeli website Ynet that Tsarnaev is in stable condition but that because of wounds to his throat, he may never be able to speak again.
Tabb received his medical degree at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and is also a board member of Hadassah-Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem. That background gave him a unique perspective in responding to Monday's terrorist attack.
"Unfortunately, I have had a lot of experience with these types of injuries after years of treating people injured in terror attacks in Israel," Tabb said.
As long as he's still got speech centers in his brain, he can use assistive devices to speak. People who have had their larynxes completely removed can now speak.
He might have heard his own voice for the last time, but he'll be able to speak.
I also don't find it odd that an Israeli doc would treat him. It could be a Pakistani or even Chechen doc, teaching hospitals in big cities are mini UNs.
the MD's may be Israeli but they were also staff Doctors at this particular hospital, the same poster also told us that Israeli police were investigating the case too, made it sound as though they were brought in especially for this it came from the irrefutable Russia Today
Truth was Israeli law enforcement was here visiting anyway and no actual involvement in case was mentioned in any major US News publication
this thread is most likely flypaper for comments like the one you made, but note I seriously doubt this was any Mossad Black ops
shows you how well informed people posting on the internet boards are about The Jewish State...and what motivates such.
It's a great demonstration .
with what anyone knows or feels about Israel.
It's not as if what these doctors are doing here justifies the Occupation or the settlements, or as if Netanyahu somehow deserves credit for this.
Doctors treat the wounded. Most of them, wherever they are from, feel obligated to do that, and virtually all put politics or nationality aside at such a time.
There's really no reason to use what these doctors are doing for "point-scoring" on the I/P issue. What they are doing is outside of politics or nationality. I'm glad they ARE treating the man, and doing so properly, but not sure why it matters that they are Israeli. Doctors are just doctors, and that's how it should be.
imagine anything in this thread has anything to do with the occupation or somehow justifies it.
Strange "flight of ideas".
Generally, threads here are about the I/P conflict...something this story, commendable as the work of these doctors is, has no pertinence to.
or are you saying you posted it because you thought it to be BS, no problem I've done that too
Or that The Mossad warned Jews on 911 to stay away?
Quite the revealing thread ....
You know perfectly well she doesn't believe in anti-Israeli or antisemitic conspiracy theories. Shame on you for the insinuation. You're better than that.
I was demonstrating this thread was full of this kind of thinking and was surprised that anyone with any kind of integrity would even have answered post 1 which is truly vile.
Why do they have THEM doctors ?
Seems THOSE kind of doctors really have upset you.
An Israeli PR firm revealed in a press release today that in addition to the Israeli police and Israeli intelligence agents that flew to Boston, and the Israeli doctors that treated the wounded, and all the Israeli PR flaks that popped up to try to get the media to mention "terror attack" and "Israel" as many times in the same sentence as possible, at least two of the hospital kitchen staff preparing meals for the Boston bombing suspect also come from Israel.
"Honestly, somebody just told me to puree these apples in a blender, and I'm doing it," said Yankl Rosenberg. "I don't even know whether its going to the bombing guy or not".
"I suppose it might be for him, because his throat got all fucked up, and he can suck this through a straw".
Yankl is a native of Boston, who moved to Israel four years ago, but moved back to his home town last May.
"I went there for a couple of years, but it didnt work out. That language is all fucked up, all the letters look the same. And they put cottage cheese on everything. My buddy Menachem Mendel says he wants to go over there, I said boy, you better like the taste of hummus."
"Some Israeli PR flunky came and saw me yesterday, apparently he needs to get as many Israeli angles on this Boston thing as possible. He asked me if I had any terror experiences while in Israel. I said only when I found out how much apartment rents are over there. Holy shit it is expensive."
Yankl's work mate Mohammed also works the lunch shift at the hospital, and hails from Haifa. Yankl says that he mentioned his friend "but the PR consultant from Israel didn't seem too interested. Said he was the wrong kind of Israeli. Whatever. I have to get this bread and butter pudding out of the oven."
