A Norwegian doctor has been permanently banned from entering the Gaza Strip by the Israeli government. Dr Mads Gilbert says he was stopped trying to cross into Gaza in October. He called the move "totally unacceptable".
Israel cited security reasons for imposing the ban.
Dr Gilbert has treated patients in Gaza for more than a decade. He worked at the Shifa Hospital in Gaza City during the 50-day summer conflict.
He told the BBC he had never broken any Israeli rules during his spells working in Gaza.
But he suggested that his open reporting of the medical situation in the territory had angered the Israeli authorities.
"The fundamental reason for the ill health of the population in Gaza is of course the siege and the bombing," he said. An Israeli foreign ministry spokesman, Emmanuel Nahshon, described Dr Gilbert as a "Jekyll and Hyde" figure, hiding behind a cloak of being a humanitarian doctor.WHO IS HE?
In a statement made to Dagbladet in the wake of the September 11 attacks, Gilbert voiced contextual support for the attacks. He said that quote: "also the suppressed have a moral right to attack the United States with the weapons they had to create. Dead civilians are the same whether Americans, Palestinians or Iraqis" and he continued "Terror is a bad weapon, but the answer is yes I support hte attack, within the context I have mentioned"MORE:
Mads Fredrik Gilbert (born June 2, 1947, Porsgrunn) is a Norwegian doctor, activist and politician from the socialist party Red. ... Boycott of Médecins Sans Frontières
Though profiling himself as a humanitarian aid worker, Gilbert criticized and encouraged people to boycott the humanitarian aid organization Médecins Sans Frontières, for not taking a position in a conflict, and criticized the political line of this statement. He also worked against the training of new Norwegian medical personnel assigned to the ISAF forces in Afghanistan. His activism resulted in the ceasing of training of medical personnel at his medical department, and a following shortfall of qualified doctors in both the Norwegian military force and humanitarian effort in Afghanistan.
On being a doctor as well as a politician, Gilbert has said the two roles are indistinguishable, and that "there is little in medicine that isn't politics".HE IS A WORSE MONSTER THAN JEKYL/HYDE.
HE IS AN EVIL AGITATOR OF THE ANTI-WEST LEFT..
AND THEREFORE HE'S A PERFECT ALLY FOR THE ISLAMIST SCUM IN GAZA.
