Ben-Ari: Ichilov Infection the Price of Being Pretty


Member of Knesset Michael Ben-Ari (National Union) reacted, Thursday evening, to news that a doctor at Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital had been infected with tuberculosis, by saying, "This is the price that Israel pays for looking good." The doctor was apparently infected after treating illegal aliens who had infiltrated the country, and the hospital is checking the possibility that eight other employees were infected.

Dr. Ben-Ari added, "The establishment, which is afraid of being accused of racism, would rather that doctors and citizens die of diseases, but in no way will it isolate the infiltrators in separate hospitals."
