ISRAEL’S SECRET DOCTORS: Israeli doctors have been smuggled into refugee camps in Jordan and elsewhere, where they perform life-saving operations on wounded Syrians. When Israeli doctors and aid workers go into the refugee camps, they change clothes so that they can fade into the background. They must be smuggled in and out. They don’t tell others where they’re going and when they go home they usually don’t say where they have been. Ordinary Israelis have also taken matters into their own hands, smuggling shampoo, soap, toothpaste, laundry detergent, sugar, rice, toys for children and other basic items – all donated by the Israeli public and Israeli supermarket chains – into Syrian refugee camps in Jordan and elsewhere. An Israeli Arabic paper reports: “The Arab countries offer condolences but the best role is provided by the Israelis because they are crossing the border to provide assistance to the refugees, risking their lives without a word of thank you.” (National Post-Canada) “Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.” Ps 112:4
