Arab who saved Israelis during stabbing under threats

An Arab doctor who saved two Israelis during a stabbing attack in Palestinian territory is facing threats for helping the Jewish father and son.

Amin Mansour, a dentist, heard the men screaming after they had been stabbed right outside his clinic near the Palestinian-controlled city of Kalkilya. A Palestinian teenager stabbed them on Saturday after asking if they were Jews. Mansour chased him away and treated the wounds of the two Jewish men until they were evacuated by Israeli soldiers.

Shortly afterwards, the story spread on social media and many Arab users threatened Mansour for saving “two settlers.”

Mansour said he simply acted out of “humanity.”

“I could not look and see someone about to die,” he said. “I heard screams and saw the boy stabbing. I took the knife from him and he ran away. If I hadn’t stopped him, he could have killed.”

It is so encouraging to see Palestinians who have the courage to do what is right. However, there is still a sizable minority who lusts for blood. They will attack their own people—the people they are supposedly fighting for—because they helped potentially dying Jews.

This is not the first time that a Palestinian Good Samaritan has taken heat from his or her own people for helping Jewish Israelis. A few months ago we reported about an Arab who helped save the lives of an Israeli family moments after their father was killed in a drive-by shooting in 2016. The man came under attack after an interview with him about how he was one of the first responders at the scene went public.

Eventually the man sought refuge in Israel and was granted Israeli residency after being forced out of the Palestinian Authority. Rabbi Mickey Mark was killed and his wife seriously wounded in that attack. The Palestinian helped the mother and her two teenage children who were in the car as well.
