  • BioEdge: Israeli doctors refuse to feed hunger-striker
    the ceasefire At this stage only forced feeding can save Allan s life but he has declared that he does not want any medical intervention at all And Israeli doctors are respecting his wishes The government has not been able to find doctors who will cooperate A hospital in Beersheva refused to carry out blood tests without his consent The government then transferred him to Barzilai Medical Centre but its doctors have also refused Physicians for Human Rights Israel said in a statement Once Allan lost consciousness medical ethics requires that his doctors act in accordance to their understanding of the patient s will and their discretion PHR Israel hopes and believes that the doctors in Barzilai Hospital have acted with respect and in accordance with Allan s will The situation we are now facing could have been avoided It was possible to hold a dialogue and reach an understanding that would have prevented this deterioration In July a law was passed authorising the force feeding of prisoners However the Israeli Medical Association has urged doctors not to obey it The Israeli government describes hunger strikes as blackmail Security prisoners are interested in turning a hunger strike into a new type of suicide terrorist attack through which they will threaten the State of Israel said Gilad Erdan Israel s minister of public security We will not allow MORE ON THESE TOPICS force feeding hunger strike Israel This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact us for permission and fees Some articles on this site are published under

  • BioEdge: Israeli defence forces under fire for abuses during Gaza War
    Safe Place the investigators who came from South Africa Germany Denmark USA Switzerland and Gaza describe a number of ethically dubious incidents These included using civilians as human shields shelling a civilian convoy attacking a clinic and interfering with medical evacuations They were unable to conclude whether these and other abuses were the policy of the Israeli Army or whether they were the responsibility of individual soldiers The attacks were characterised by heavy and unpredictable bombardments of civilian neighbourhoods in a manner that failed to discriminate between legitimate targets and protected populations and caused widespread destruction of homes and civilian property Such indiscriminate attacks by aircraft drones artillery tanks and gunships were unlikely to have been the result of decisions made by individual soldiers or commanders they must have entailed approval from top level decision makers in the Israeli military and or government The report broadly corroborated other versions of the conflict by United Nations agencies In January the International Criminal Court began its own investigation of possible war crimes violations A spokesman for Israel s foreign ministry dismissed the document as biased and poorly informed The report is laced with biased information based on one sided sources whose credibility is questionable Had the information in the report been shared with Israeli authorities prior to its publication our input could have been incorporated Sadly this was not the case and the result is a report bearing a low level of credibility whose contribution to understanding the conflict between Israel and Hamas this summer is very low MORE ON THESE TOPICS ethics of war Gaza Israel war crimes This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines
