My eye – the blurring of Foundation Trusts and private medicine By Diane Langford

25 July 2014 — OurNHS

A disturbing experience at a private hospital exposes the tangled relationship between Foundation Trusts and private business.

Only when I was summoned to an appointment at a private hospital I’d never heard of, for a procedure I didn’t need, did I begin to question how NHS Foundation Trusts are obliged to raise money from private patients – and the pressures on them to set up private units through a complicated web of business arrangements.

Gaza, Israel and ‘Human Shields’ By Sarah Gillespie

25 July 2014 — Gilad Atzmon

Isr shieldWhat does it mean to use human shields? Employed by the Germans and Japanese in the second word war, the tactic is premised on an underlying trust in your enemy’s humanity. It appeals to the compassion and mercy of the combatant that they not slaughter the innocent in order to avenge their target. The ‘shield’ is not the human bodies surrounding the ‘guilty’ party, the shield is the clemency that mankind instinctively affords the innocent. The shield evaporates only when confronted by an enemy who is not merely a fellow soldier locked in a power battle, but a psychopath unconcerned with the pain of others. Such is the case with the Hamas. They are faced with an enemy who is willing to obliterate pregnant women, babies, kids, handicapped people, schools and crowded hospitals in order to smash their target. The Israelis repeatedly demonstrate a pathological disregard for any life that is not a Jewish life, and it is for this reason alone, that the Hamas are utterly incapable of ever using ‘human shields.’
