American refused service at Swedish clinic

Herm de berm de Yankee go home de bork bork bork!

Actually, the Swedes were fine. It’s Middle Eastern politics sneaking in.

Rather than introduce himself, the doctor waved the patient’s papers and shouted “she doesn’t have strep throat, she doesn’t have strep throat”. He then added that he would not treat her.

“He said he didn’t like Americans,” said Johansson.

He also disliked hearing English spoken in his treatment room and soon walked out.

“We just couldn’t believe it. We were left standing there with our mouths hanging open,” said Johansson.

According to Johansson, the doctor was a Palestinian who objected to American foreign policy in the Middle East.

Her niece followed the doctor into the office to confront him but was told: “I don’t deal with people like that”.

Well, his reticence is understandable, since Israeli doctors refuse to treat Pales–oh, what’s that? Never mind.

Exit question: think we’ll see more stories like this one as these kids grow up?

Slap on the wrist and a commendation from the Swedish version of CAIR.
Having him assigned to be Jimmy Carter’s personal physican would a more appropriate punishment,for both of them.

Welcome to the real problem with the Palestinians and Islamists in general — an inability to see past their own bigotry and hatred.

GT on December 31, 2006 at 2:40 PM

on another note … I hear North Korea loves the yankees.

CONTENT WARNING (for the F-bomb in the chorus)!!!

Gotta love government propaganda.

One Angry Christian on December 31, 2006 at 2:43 PM

I wonder what CAIR has to say about this.

aunursa on December 31, 2006 at 2:51 PM

What’s the doctor’s name? I just don’t feel the story is complete without that info.

(Although, if the AP investigates, they’ll report that his name is Jamil Hussein.)

The muppet Swedish chef is WAY more fun to watch than Rosie O’The Donald when she does the whole “ching-chong” routine.

Do I need to remind everyone that Swedish ambulance drivers refuse to provide emergency services for some neighborhoods in Stockholm (inhabited by Muslims) because the drivers fear for their lives in those neighborhoods? I predict that we’ll be seeing more and more of this kinda’ stuff as time goes on.

CyberCipher on December 31, 2006 at 3:12 PM

Very likely CyberCipher, but the outcome of such events is just another “cut off your nore to spite your face” move by the Islamists. If you go to a doctor in an office,and he refuses to treat you,going to another doctor is usually an easy option. Not getting an ambulance when you really need one is a whole different story.

another reason to let the Militant Muslims have Europe.

There may be some that are curious about my previous post. Here’s an associated link.

CyberCipher on December 31, 2006 at 3:21 PM

I think the doctor was nice. He might have even poisoned the lady. If I was the lady, I would not even beg him to continue .

See-dubya, your broken Swedish is “Ahb-so-lutely mahh-ve-loos!” (Kudo Billy Crystal)

kevcad on December 31, 2006 at 3:46 PM

Ouabam might be right, he COULD have decided to actually practice the religion of Islam then and there and she’d been dead.

Exactly. My collie says “That Palestinian doctor was NOT a very good Muslim.”

CyberCipher on December 31, 2006 at 4:00 PM

Why would any American want to visit a Palestinian doctor?

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on December 31, 2006 at 4:07 PM

Straw poll – if you went to a clinic in a foreign country and the Dr was Palestinian would you

try to convince yourself that it really is a religon of peace
ask for a second opinion
Run the f to the US Embassy

By the way – with all poverty and potential Martyrs in the area AKA Palestine – why is this Dr treating people in Sweden???

iam7545 on December 31, 2006 at 4:08 PM

“another reason to let the Militant Muslims have Europe.”

No, didn’t you see the guy’s Palestinian? It’s because we’ve let the “Militant Muslims” have Europe that this happened.

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on December 31, 2006 at 4:07 PM

Along those same lines, my collie asks “Why would any Christian attend a Benny Hinn faith-healing festival?”

Of course, perhaps they didn’t know he’s Palestinian (on both counts).

iam7545 on December 31, 2006 at 4:08 PM

Beat me to it iam! If this guy cares so much, he should be at home in ‘Palestine’. Until then, he is more than welcome to shut up. Oh, and his license to practice medicine should be pulled immediately.

I guess he took the hipocrits oath?????

ChrisIansNana on December 31, 2006 at 5:11 PM

Immigrants more welcome in Sweden than in any other country over there…

Sweden condemns execution of Saddam

And, unrelated, except that it’s half-Swedish

Entelechy on December 31, 2006 at 5:44 PM

Palestine.. best place in the world to find suicide bombers.

spmat on December 31, 2006 at 7:06 PM

Palestinian, eh? The West Bank and the Gaza Strip ain’t good enought for him, eh? Had the gall to abandon his bretheren in “Palestine” to make a decent living in Sweden, then has the audacity to get picky about his patients? – - – Well, on second thought, he refuses to work on his own bretheren as well, evidenced by his move to Sweden.

That hasn’t stopped him from bringing his “war” with him to Sweden, has it!

Dock the Palestinian a days pay for discriminating on the job!

To be liberal is to live in a cloud of delusion fraught with fantasy, and a disregard for the law and fair play. Alas; clear fact, unambiguous consensus, scrutiny, and researched reason does prevail and keeps me in touch with who is who, what is what, and explains why I am conservative.

woodcdi on December 31, 2006 at 7:41 PM

If the good Doctor is a Palestinian, chances are that “people like us” through US contriubtions to the UN, probably paid for some of his living expenses, health care, education or maybe even part or all of his medical education.

Arij Nassir, a 13-year-old girl with a serious look, recounts how she passes her hours watching Israeli television, especially programs for children. “They play on clean beaches. I’ve seen gardens, games, even a zoo… It seems very far from here.”

Hmmmm…I wonder if Hammas used the money they receive for construction instead of arms to fire at Israel that this girl would have clean beaches and gardens to play in.

Capitalist Infidel on December 31, 2006 at 8:48 PM

If the Palestinians wettest dreams came true, and every Dirty Joooo Son of Pigs and Dogs in the Zionist Entity simply vanished off the face of the Earth, so that their Homeland was no longer under Occupation….

They’d destroy the gardens, and pollute the beaches. They’d just have a larger hellhole to live in. And they’d have to come up with a new scapegoat to blame their problems on… I guess the Great Satan would have to do if the Little Satan went away.

I say strip him of his license for unethical behavior.

CrimsonFisted on January 1, 2007 at 11:26 AM

We could celebrate the New Year by shoving 2 lit M-80s in his ears. :o)

Coronagold on January 1, 2007 at 1:24 PM

Yes we will se more like this. The bleeding heart socialists will provide education, money, and anything else they need to a sociopathic society who can’t provide or create for themselves. This does not meet the definiton of a soveriegn people. Mediocricy, and Welfare will save them!

Egfrow, P.J. O’Rourke took a sabbatical a few years ago and toured/observed/recorded life in a few European countries. He concluded that Sweden has 370 holidays a year :)

He needs to go back to palestine.
