    I'm going to send my mother to him, she can blow him to life. She can resuscitate anyone with her mouth.

    At first, i thought, "great, something else for them to blame on us." Since he lives, i wonder if they will blame us for saving his life?

    No doubt a Jewish Doctor saved his life. Shame he didn't have it in his own country. No Jewish Doctors there and he would now be with OBL.

    Since his son graduated from a US Uni, and he was there for the ceremony, I doubt they'll hold much against us. Until another government gets into power, of course.

    I certainly don't hold anything against Palestinians.
    I hope that we're entering a new era in our relationship with them, and I praise our president for making it possible.
    I want Palestine to be our friend in the future.

      US should not be friends with Palestine until Palestine become a responsible neighbor and get over its defeat for US best friend, Israel.

    @ Lord Ernie (7:39 PM):
    You know that not all good doctors are Jewish, and I've known some lousy Jewish doctors, no matter what their mothers say.
