Belgium: Doctor refuses to treat 90 year old Jewish woman, "send her to Gaza for a few hours"

A Flemish doctor refused to treat a 90 year old Jewish woman.  The doctor was on call when the woman's son called a medical hotline, as his mother suffered pain from a rib fracture.  The doctor quickly figured out the woman was Jewish, based on her name and address in Antwerp, as well as her son's American accent, said he won't come and hung up.  When the family called again, he said:  "Send her to Gaza for a few hours and than she won't feel any more pain".

The doctor confirmed the story, but said he was emotionally distraught at the time.
