wow. that's really nice. who'da thunk it?
 
2003-07-30 08:09:36 PM  
Please, tell me that some of those peeps will take a hint from this

Anyone want odds on whether or nor Al-Jazeera carries this story?

Window opens at 12:1...
 
2003-07-30 08:11:03 PM  
and as an aside: 18 kids... dear god
 
2003-07-30 08:11:43 PM  
awe. Warms the heart.
 
2003-07-30 08:12:11 PM  
And who wants to bet all 4 of them become suicide bombers?
 
2003-07-30 08:12:38 PM  
Touching, but in the complete scheme of things, it will be forgotten. And who knows, those 3 Israeli children might be killed by another car-bomb as they leave the hospital. Sad.

All we are saying is give peace a chance...

Wouldn't that be ironic?

Greater love no man hath...
 
2003-07-30 08:15:10 PM  
That's just plain cool.
 
2003-07-30 08:15:41 PM  
and little did the Israeli children know - - those organs were explosive!! muwhahah!

/to hell
 
2003-07-30 08:17:48 PM  
Wow, that was gracious AND very, very courageous
If some Palestinian's go out of their way to kill any and every Jew, what do you think they will think of one of their own basically giving life to some Isrealis?

What happened to the Sappy tag?!

Palestinians have been donating organs to Israelis forever, everytime one of them blows himself up the Israelis get tons of free organs.

/really going to hell

Okay, now THAT was funny.... ;-0

a rare act after 34 months of conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.

34 months of conflict? That's all... it feels like it's been going on for decades! Oh well, time flies I guess.
 
2003-07-30 08:19:31 PM  
Here's a real shocker. The Israeli kids' bodies won't reject them. Maybe its a message to some of those people that WE'RE ALL HUMAN GODDAMNIT!!!
 
2003-07-30 08:19:32 PM  
"And who wants to bet all 4 of them become suicide bombers?"

The four children saved are Israeli. I don't think any Israeli's have become suicide bombers, have they?

Actually Al Jazeera was praised by the previous administration and the current adinistration for objectively reporting news from the arab world but then praising Al Jazeera didn't fit into the current administrations plans and the FoxNews et. al made them bad all of the sudden. And everyone ate it up with a spoon.

tarvuz with some vitriolic anti-semectic or anti-american troll in 5,4,3,2...
 
2003-07-30 08:22:04 PM  
Farking Corksucker,

Well... Often that is me, but I'll let someone else take the reins this time.

And it isn't anti-semetic, it is anti-Israeli, get it right ;)

a 13-year-old girl suffering from cystic fibrosis received Qaher's heart and lungs while her own functioning heart was transplanted into another young patient.

why did they take the 13-year-old girls heart out?
 
2003-07-30 08:24:50 PM  

maybe there's hope for the Middle East afterall ...


/nah, that's cant be ...

 
2003-07-30 08:25:15 PM  
Henchman - no, they have not.

There's some hardline jewish groups(extremely rare as they may be) that advocate fighting dirty, but they rarely do anything.
 
2003-07-30 08:26:02 PM  
i read it again including the paragraph that explains the heart
 
2003-07-30 08:26:34 PM  
Henchman: I think the point of Space's comment is/was that the Palestinian urge toward suicide attacks is ingrained in their internal organs; i.e., the Israelis who receive said organs will themselves become hate-filled.

Me, I woulda sold the organs on the black market.
 
2003-07-30 08:26:47 PM  
Those Palestineans sure are nice folks
 
2003-07-30 08:28:03 PM  
I'm gonna donate my organs to dying conservatives
 
2003-07-30 08:28:58 PM  
Space

The Israelis are not the one's suicide bombing though. Maybe the extra organs will spark something.
 
2003-07-30 08:29:43 PM  
I've been trying to donate my organ for weeks now, no takers
 
2003-07-30 08:30:07 PM  
"And who wants to bet all 4 of them become suicide bombers?"

The four children saved are Israeli. I don't think any Israeli's have become suicide bombers, have they?


Beat me too it, the Israelis attack Palestinians as military units, not as suicide bombers. The 4 could become Israeli soldiers though.
 
2003-07-30 08:30:55 PM  
"I think the point of Space's comment is/was that the Palestinian urge toward suicide attacks is ingrained in their internal organs; i.e., the Israelis who receive said organs will themselves become hate-filled."

Huh. That's an odd joke, given the generosity of the act. Oh well, humor is a subjective thing.
 
2003-07-30 08:30:58 PM  
Someone might take my liver as a doorstop. God knows it's probably hard enough by now.
 
2003-07-30 08:31:33 PM  
Actually, they will become soilders, Military sevice is required in Israel
 
2003-07-30 08:32:42 PM  
Digitalstrange, except the Israeli soldiers don't attack innocent civilians. Well... they don't let civilians who protect the Palestinians soldiers and terrorists stop them.. but eh.
 
2003-07-30 08:33:11 PM  
He must have been some Druze/Arab Christian sellout mofo.
 
2003-07-30 08:33:21 PM  
That figures vandamm. The Palestinians save four lives, just to see them become Isreali Soldiers later. In more irony to be posted twenty years on fark, all four of those soldiers will kill the remants of that poor kids family.
 
2003-07-30 08:33:33 PM  
Dead Palestinian boy's family donate his organs to save four Israeli children

Who'd have thought a foreskin could stretch so far?

2003-07-30 08:33:54 PM  
How nice, now the Israelis dont have to STEAL organs from dead people..
 
2003-07-30 08:35:52 PM  
I'll go out on a limb and say I really have no idea about which ones are the suicide bombers and which ones aren't. I just thought it'd be one of those ha-ha-I'm-going-to-hell comments. So I was wrong.

And since someone already said something about them getting killed on the way out of the hospital -- I have nothing.
 
2003-07-30 08:37:27 PM  
I'll be the 1st to say it, Who The Fark Cares? They are from the mid east, who cares if they live or die. Right? Right?


Flame on
 
2003-07-30 08:37:33 PM  
Palestineans send Suicide Bombers, Israeli's send American funded Missiles.
 
2003-07-30 08:38:14 PM  
First you take da land.....

Then you take da money......

Then you take da wemen.......

And den you take da organs.
 
2003-07-30 08:38:49 PM  
That's the happiest thing I've read in a while! :")
 
2003-07-30 08:39:35 PM  
Snoop, you show your self to be just as stupid as the real snoop. Apparently those troops over in Iraq are over there for some reason, so apparently the AMERICAN PEOPLE do.

(figured i would add a little gasoline)
 
2003-07-30 08:40:48 PM  
That's weird.
I thought that dead Palestinian boys were used to kill Israelis.
Huh.
Who'da thunk it?
 
2003-07-30 08:43:02 PM  
onid70: They're hated because they showed opposition (read: American) fatalities during the conflict...we wouldn't do that would we? Would we?!?

*cough*
 
2003-07-30 08:43:10 PM  
At first it seems like a great thing, then it seemed like a publicity / political event:

"We want Israelis and Americans to know that while the Israeli army kills Palestinians we give life to Israeli children," Murad Aoude, one of Qaher's 17 siblings, said today.

It's great that there are organ doners, but that statement devalues the generosity.
 
2003-07-30 08:43:52 PM  
heh, free organs...in Israel? Must've been a pretty long line up...
