Professor Alan Dershowitz: Choose Life

L-R: Barry Cohen, Dr. Eyran Halpern, Alan Dershowitz

Rabin Medical Center is a wonderful hospital named after an incredible human being. I had the privilege of knowing Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin....We have an obligation as a successful community to bring about justice for the Jewish people and for Israel...In the Bible it says "therefore choose life." In Israel every life is valued. Israeli hospitals do not discriminate between those they admit. Per capita, Israel exports more lifesaving technology to the world than any other country. [It has] the highest ratio of medical personnel to the population... it builds bomb shelters and wants to minimize the death of civilians on both sides...Israel has a higher standard of compliance with human rights and the rule of law...no other country has higher compliance...There is a deal we all implicitly made with Israel. They put their own and their children's lives at risk. Our part of the deal is we pay a tiny percentage. We have to fulfill our part of the deal by contributing to this institution [Rabin Medical Center] that stands for and represents the best of the Jewish people and Israel.
