An Iranian boy suffering from cancer tumor will be treated in Israel

with 2 comments

A 12-year-old boy suffers from a very grave brain cancer. And he is in Israel, where he is in hospital to try and cure him.

He was firstly operated in Iran, but his situation worsened and his family sent him urgently to a health complex in Turkey. Turkish doctors informed that “his state is really critical”, assuming that his brain tumor could be better cured in an Israeli hospital.

The Iranian boy’s family wrote, using an intermediate, to the prestigious Hospital Tel Hashomer, near Tel Aviv. After examining the diagnosis made both in Teheran and Ankara, Dr. Feldman and the Professor Shapira announced that “they are willing and are able to treat the brain tumor”.

But, with or without tumor, both countries are ennemies. An Israeli cannot set foot in Iran and viceversa. The Iranian boy cannot enter Israel without an special pass, very special pass, given by the higher instances.

Burocracy reached the bureau of the Israeli Minister of Interior, Meir Shitrit who has given his personal authorization. “In life/death cases and much more if it’s about a boy, it doesn’t matter his religion or nationality. That’s why I have permitted that the ill boy and his Iranian family enter the country. I am happy we are able to help them”, states Shitrit to the Yediot Ajaronot newspaper.

But in Israel the Minister’s word is not sufficient. The internal secret service (Shaback) have analysed carefully for several hours the case and identity of this family. In the end they gave them the final pass and another to legally stay for a fortnight.

After a secret travel, the Iranian boy has arrived in BenGurion’s airport (Tel Aviv). His destination, the operating room of the Tel Hashomer Hospital. Far from policy, ideology and nuclear weapons, the boy is just debating himself between life and death. Everything depends of the brain tumor treated at the center of the ennemies’ country.
