Wed, 07/30/2014

Professor Mads Gilbert is a Norwegian emergency physician who gained international fame for his support to the Palestinian people. From the Al-Shifa hospital in besieged Gaza, he challenged Obama to spend one night in the hospital during the murderous Israeli bombing campaign. After two weeks working in the war zone, he left Gaza last Monday. On the way back home, he made a stopover in Brussels to testify about his experience.

“My key message is clear,” he says, “This is an all-out war against Palestinian civilians.”
