Belgian Doctor Refuses Treatment to Jewish Patient

I don’t believe being anti-Israel makes one, necessarily, anti-semitic.

I do. In, oh, 99.9% of the cases, at least.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Good thing the Eurodicks have all sorts of human rights laws, so they can look down on us barbarian cowboy Americans, ain’t it?

    Oh, but Jews aren’t human, or something. Never mind.

  2. There was no indication in the story that she was Israeli, and the barbarian suggested she go to Gaza for “proper” treatment. Ergo, a prima facia case of anti-semitism.

  3. I used to participate in a mailing list, and there was a Belgian guy who insisted he wasn’t anti-Semitic, but whenever the topic of Israel came up, he’d mouth platitudes–if challenged–that both sides did bad things, but he never could find a single thing to complain about that the Palestinians did. He only ever talked about the failures and wrongs of the Israelis.
