Report: Israel seizes oxygen machines donated to PA

Seven machines donated by Norwegian agency confiscated en route to PA over chance generators attached could be used for purposes other than medical treatment, Ma'an reports.

Israel confiscated seven oxygen machines en route to hospitals in the West Bank and Gaza based on the claim that there was a chance the generators attached to the machines would not be used for medical purposes, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported Saturday.

According to Ma'an, the Ramallah-based health ministry said that the generators, which were donated to the Palestinian Authority by a Norwegian development agency, were seized by Israeli officials despite the fact that only one machine was bound for Gaza.

The generators "came under the category of possible use for non-medical purposes" if they were delivered to southern Gaza, the Palestinian health ministry said in a statement, adding that the six other machines were bound for government hospitals in the northern Gaza, inducing the European Hospital in Gaza City, the Rafdieyah hospital in Nablus, and other facilities in Ramallah and Hebron.

The Ministry of Health appealed to the Norwegian Development Agency, which supplied the machines, and asked that they intervene and demand the release of the equipment at the soonest possible date, Ma'an reported.

"Any delay in obtaining the medical equipment will negatively affect the health of patients," the statement concluded.

I'm assuming they won't let them in since pure oxygen is highly explosive.  I find it sad they would allow suffering in a hospital that is not warranted. 

After reading many posts today, I feel the need to put in my 2 cents.  Maybe it's just me, but I would think those that call themselves God's "chosen" ones would live a more compassionate way of life.  As a Christian, I get so disgusted and angry when I see people using God as an excuse and justification to hurt others.  They have it all wrong.

Well said.  It's people who commit heinous acts such as these in the name of their God that cause many people to seriously hate religion.

Absolutely!  Many of the churches today have lost sight of their true purpose.  They have become political machines, and the worst kind of hypocrites.

Alrighty then.  My posts are being removed again because I question the validity of this claim? 

Just can't say anything against them, can I?  I MUST support Palestine or my posts are deleted.  That's really the way it's starting to look around here.  No free speech with THIS batch!

 Back to the topic my mother in law died of because she had copd. She was on oxygen and it was a matter of life and death. My son at 3 weeks was in heart failure and was on an oxygen machine. He had open heart surgery at 31/2 months and was on an oxygen machhine. I have had been on one myself. Want to go to the front of everyone in an emergency room. Tell the lady at the desk you can't breathe. You are wisked in, it is SERIOUS. No oxygen, no life. Bastards to take life sustaining equipment, but what is life to them? God's chosen people? I don't think so. They may consider themselves as such but I do not.
