Saved the ter­ror­ist too

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

Ilan Klein, in Lon­don

and at work in Jerusalem need to do your best to save a life, be­cause ev­ery life you save is a vic­tory.

“Peo­ple around the vic­tims of the stab­bings also panic. There were a lot of chil­dren cry­ing near the scene, and my col­leagues and I went to talk to them, treat them and help them.”

Mr Klein, who spoke to MDA UK sup­port­ers in Lon­don this week, was also part of the re­sponse team to the at­tack on the Henkin fam­ily a fort­night ago.

“I can sleep at night, be­cause it’s part of our work. There are times where we need to talk about what we have seen, but now we sleep, and we sleep well be­cause we work hard,” he said.

Mr Klein, who lives near Jerusalem, added: “I want JC read­ers to know that we are strong. We are in Is­rael, we are the Jewish peo­ple and we are strong enough.”

Mean­while, Bri­tish sup­port­ers of the Shaare Zedek Med­i­cal Cen­tre saw first­hand how their do­na­tions had helped save the life of a 25-year-old man who was stabbed by a ter­ror­ist.

Dur­ing a tour of the Jerusalem hos­pi­tal last Thurs­day, Bri­tish trustees who were ded­i­cat­ing the Vivi­enne Wohl Depart­ment of Pae­di­atric Surgery were told that a vic­tim was be­ing treated at the Mau­rice Wohl Sur­gi­cal Com­plex nearby.

Hours later, the cen­tre’s di­rec­tor gen­eral told at­ten­dees that the vic­tim was re­cov­er­ing due to “the level of equip­ment, build­ing, and com­put­er­is­ing of the com­plex” they had helped pro­vide.
