Dr. Richard Horton of the Lancet Visits Israel

The once respected British medical journal, the Lancet has come under fire recently because of a pattern of  biased reporting on the Middle East.

Medical Journal The Lancet Infected with Anti-Israel Bias

The Lancet: A Biased and Shameful Medical Journal

Israel is fighting back, in her inimitable way.

The editor in chief of the Lancet , Richard Horton is now visiting Israel, and we are witnessing something close to miraculous.

On September 24, he tweeted "On Monday I go to Israel—to listen and to learn. And, quietly, to explain." 

I am reading his tweets with a sense of awe and with wonder.

Visiting Rambam Hospital, Dr. Horton is gradually  becoming aware of Israel's tolerance, diversity, and yes, her challenges.

Both inside the hospital

and outside the hospital.

This, best beloved, is why the haters fear "normalcy". This is why the haters want to isolate Israel. This is why they don't want you to see the real Israel- they know their fragile lies will collapse like a house of cards.

I am watching Dr. Richard Horton finally understanding what so many of us have been saying all along.

I find myself looking forward to the end of this story.
