Israel saved the life of the three-year-old daughter of a top Gaza-based Hamas leader.
This act of kindness this weekend was completely ignored by the terrorist group and regional Arab media.
The girl, daughter of Hamas Interior Minister Elham Fathi Hammad, was the victim of a unsuccessful heart operation in Gaza. She was in critical condition when Jordan’s King Abdullah II requested that Israel allow her immediate transport to Amman for emergency surgery.
Israel agreed to the transfer, but the girl was in no condition to travel such a distance, so was first rushed to Barzilai Hospital in the nearby Israeli coastal city of Ashkelon, where doctors worked for hours to repair the damage of her earlier surgery and stabilize her.
A Jordanian helicopter was later escorted through Israeli airspace to pick up the girl and move her to Amman.
Jordanian media later reported on the incident, but completely cut out the portion where the girl’s life was saved by Israeli doctors or that Israel has not hesitated to allow the unfettered transport through its territory of a family member of one of its most dedicated enemies.
Hammad later issued a public statement thanking Jordan and King Abdullah. He did not mention Israel at all.

The Israeli Government has done this kind of mercy operations before. Sick children from Gaza has been taken into Israel, and treated in some of the best equipped hospitals in the World.
Several times, the IDF has experiences gun battles following such act of mercy. Armed Hamas terrorists have fired on Gazan`s trying to enter Israel, and seeking help from the the Jewish people.
This time there was no gun fire.
May this Interior Minister go down on his knees, and ask for mercy from God of Israel for his hate speeches and his support of violence. And may the Messiah Jesus have mercy on him and save Him. Amen.
