State of Palestine: Doctor who treated Israeli stabbing victims in West Bank speaks out

Palestinian Territory, Occupied, Qalqilya
September 11, 2019 at 12:05 GMT +00:00 · Published

A Palestinian dentist has spoken out after allegedly receiving death threats following his treatment of two Israeli settlers who were stabbed near his surgery in Qalqilya in West Bank, on Wednesday.

Amin Mansour‏ had rushed to the Israelis' aid after they were reportedly stabbed by a 16-year-old Palestinian as they were en route to his dentistry.

"We are Arabs and we hold Arab ethics and it is not permissible to do so with the guests, as the Prophet, Peace be upon him, said," stated Mansour who likened his treatment of Israeli patients to Holy Prophet's treatment of one of his biggest foes Abu Sufyan.

"It is my duty as a human being in the first place and not for money, to provide the care needed to the patient, and to relieve any pain," added Mansour.

Mansour has been regularly treating Russian-speaking Jewish patients due to his mastery of the language.

The two Israelis settlers, 60-year-old Yosef Perez and his son 16-year-old Liber Perez, were reportedly attacked by the Palestinian teenager after he asked if they were Jews.

SOT, Dr. Amin Mansour‏ (Arabic): "They [the stabbed father and son] are not Palestinians, but holders of Israeli identity from the inner Palestine, the Ofchem area near Beersheba. I feel very sad for them because this is happening in my country and my clinic, especially the fact that among the injured there is a 16 year old child. I waited one whole night until I confirmed that this child would make it alive."

SOT, Dr. Amin Mansour‏ (Arabic): "I am available 24 hours when patients are being treated. It is my duty as a human being in the first place and not for money, to provide the care needed to the patient, and to relieve any pain, I am a doctor and a human being, What they have in common is humanity, we should never lose humanity no matter the conflict."

SOT, Dr. Amin Mansour‏ (Arabic): "This happened in my own clinic, even if it happened outside, it is also considered [to have happened] in my country. We are Arabs and we hold Arab ethics and it is not permissible to do so with the guests, as the Prophet, Peace be upon him, said who came in the house of Abu Sufyan saying it was safe, the Prophet did not mean Abu Sufyan as an individual, but any human entering should be safe and secure."

C/U Mansour's hands *CUTAWAY*

SOT, Dr. Amin Mansour‏ (Arabic): "I spoke earlier on Russian-speaking Russian radio. We Palestinians chose President Mahmoud Abbas, he chose peace, and our choice is what President Abbas chose. The Israeli voters are invited on September 17 to voice their demands to make peace with us."
