Step-by-Step: Making Aliyah to Israel

Cutting off your nose to spite your face

Khalaf has posted a report about injured Lebanese civilians refusing medical treatment from Jordanian medical teams that have been sent in to help the injured in Lebanon because the King of Jordan issued a statement condemning Hezbollah for making an attack within Israel and kidnapping the two Israeli soldiers waaaayyy back when all this started. Seems like this has been going on forever, it is hard to believe it has only been three weeks.

So what is up with this? I can only guess that these must be people with minor injuries and thus can indulge in the "no I don't want you to treat my bruise" rhetoric. Anyone more seriously injured who would respond this way...well there is such a thing as the Darwin awards and I'd have to say that they'd qualify. Really people, let the doctors help you!
