Adhaalath calls for caution over Jewish doctor visit

The religious Adhaalath Party has claimed the Maldivian public should be cautious of a team of Israeli doctors coming to the country this week to help perform eye surgery treatments, alleging that some medical staff from the nation have been involved in harvesting organs from “murdered Palestinians”.

Citing a press released sourced from the Adhaalath Party, Haveeru reported that the team of doctors, which form part of an organisation called Eye from Zion, are suspected of being financially supported during their visit by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC).

According to the release, the JDC is claimed to be a missionary group, though the organisation’s official website lists itself as a body to provide “humanitarian assistance”.
“A doctors’ team from Eye from Zion is visiting the Maldives in this eye camp. Do not think that they are from a normal hospital. We also understand that the doctors’ team is accompanied by an Israeli Foreign Ministry delegation,” quoted Haveeru from the Adhaalath press release.

The party has claimed that it is not trying to create a panic among the public, but added that it aimed to bring attention amongst international media of the alleged “actions against our brothers and sisters of Palestine.”

Haveeru added that the religious conservative political party had also accused the Maldives government of having “secret relations” with their Israeli counterparts.

  1. i think government is not giving enough information about these docs, while others are propaganda to this non sense. People please understand government not having secret relations , but it's open and widely seen.

  2. If there is nothing secret going on between the governments of Maldives and Israel, why is then the government of Maldives not open about the whole doctors visit thing from Israel?

  3. Its about time we need get rid of the new dictatorship of maldives. Anni is a traitor to people who elected him. Let's STOP SUPPORTING MDP. I was a supporter of MDP not anymore.

  4. Why do Maldivians accept ill treatment from their government repeatedly. They have got rid of a dictatorship recently for promised freedom. But it turns out to be, the new MDP government, is in the same path and forgetting why people have supported them. More importantly I believe they have forgot what our ancestors have protected for us with their lives. Does Maldivians have to sacrifice with their heritage and honour to get money, for the current leadership to stay in power from the enemy that will destroy them and their brothers and sisters.

  5. Israel is a very controversial country, and its relationship with the United States is deeply disturbing. There is an alliance between the Christian Right and the Jewish lobby in USA.

    Whether we like it or not, it must be noted that the Maldives is a 100 per cent Muslim country, and its brand of Islam makes it an almost Arab country.

    Proposals to establish diplomatic relations with Israel has been met, everytime, with suspicion and hostility from the general public.

    Getting too cosy with Israel is bad foreign policy, and this latest move, bringing Jewish or Israeli medical doctors, is unwise, in my opinion, to say the least.

    A small country like Maldives must walk on the international stage avoiding too much controversy and without taking too many risks.

    The move that we are talking about may entail dangers and risks. I am against the move.
