En la actualidad se cuenta entre más de 30 instituciones administradas por la diócesis, con sede en Jerusalén.El hospital brinda atención primaria y de emergencia a la población de Gaza, casi exclusivamente musulmana, “y lo hace sin proselitismo y sin discriminar por razones de religión, etnicidad, política o identificación social”, señalan los obispos. “Es la única instalación de esta clase en la Franja de Gaza que no está dirigida por el gobierno de Hamás y como tal puede ofrecer atención sanitaria sin interferencia externa o cálculos políticos. Su continuo funcionamiento responde por tanto a los intereses intrínsecos del gobierno de Estados Unidos”.Suhaila Tarazi, directora del hospital, dijo, en una entrevista reciente para ENS, que la institución era “un lugar de paz, un lugar de reconciliación, un lugar de amor”.El hospital le presta servicios a unos 42.000 pacientes externos y a 4.800 pacientes internos por año, y dirige programas específicos para niños y ancianos. Ofrece servicios de cirugía general, medicina general, ginecología y obstetricia, pediatría y ortopedia, entre otras especialidades.“Ofrecemos atención médica a todos, especialmente a los pobres, sin ninguna discriminación”, dijo Tarazi. “Como un hospital cristiano contamos con el pleno respeto de toda la comunidad porque estamos al servicio de todos”.Jefferts Schori, principal signataria de la carta de los obispos, se reunió con Tarazi en marzo de 2008 cuando visitó Gaza y el hospital. La obispa primada fue testigo de primera mano de algunas de las desesperadas condiciones de vida a que se enfrentan diariamente los palestinos que viven en Gaza. Aunque los niveles de desempleo han descendido del 80 hasta aproximadamente el 42 por ciento en los últimos cuatro años, más del 70 por ciento de los gazanos aún vive por debajo del límite de la pobreza que marca la Organización Mundial de la Salud.El comercio y los servicios a Gaza son en su mayor parte controlados por Israel, que considera al gobierno de Hamás y a los militantes islámicos como una amenaza a su seguridad. Los ataques aéreos israelíes a Gaza continúan como respuesta al lanzamiento de misiles por parte de militantes islámicos hacia el sur de Israel.La frecuente interrupción de la energía eléctrica, así como la escasez de agua y alimentos, y la falta de combustible le imponen una inmensa presión a los servicios médicos que brinda diariamente el hospital.“Hay escasez de suministros médicos, en particular de anestesia”, dijo Tarazi. “De manera que muchas veces hemos cancelado operaciones”.Tarazi le dijo también a ENS que la mayoría de los días el hospital funciona sin electricidad entre 16 y 23 horas.“No es una hipérbole decir… que las condiciones humanitarias en la Franja de Gaza son de las más graves de la tierra, o que el hospital Al Ahli es una fuente singular y absolutamente vital de auténticas buenas nuevas en ese contexto”, escriben los obispos en su carta. “La decisión de la UNRWA de cancelar su apoyo al hospital es absolutamente indefendible y debe ser revocada”.La contribución de la UNRWA asciende aproximadamente a $1 millón al año, o casi la mitad de los $2,4 millones del presupuesto del hospital.“Señor Presidente, al solicitar su intervención personal, apelamos a usted como persona de fe que ha hablado conmovedoramente de la necesidad de reconciliación entre los hijos de Abraham. El hospital Al Ahli está llevando a cabo la obra que usted ha propuesto, pero a fin de continuar, necesita del respaldo de amigos de todo el mundo”, afirman los obispos. “Profesionalmente magnífico como es el hospital, no puede sobrevivir sin el apoyo de la contribución internacional, la mayor parte de la cual ha provenido hasta ahora de la UNRWA.“Esta desafortunada decisión agrava una situación desesperada y desesperadamente triste”, dijo Anne Lynn, directora de los Amigos Americanos de la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén, en declaraciones a ENS. “Si no revocan esta decisión, la capacidad del hospital de servir a los necesitados se reducirá drásticamente. El pueblo de Gaza ha dependido de esta instalación por 130 años”.Los Amigos Americanos de la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén ofrecen alguna ayuda económica al hospital que atiende a la población, predominantemente musulmana, de Gaza.Encomiando a Tarazi y a los profesionales médicos del Ahli por su “valeroso ministerio”, Lynn dijo: “En un lugar de temor y violencia, el hospital es un oasis de calma y paz. Como comunidad de fe debemos aunar esfuerzos para garantizar que este ministerio continúe”.Suheil Dawani, obispo anglicano de Jerusalén, le dijo a ENS en una entrevista reciente que Cristo está presente en el hospital Ahli a través de la obra de curación. “Las instituciones son el medio de dar testimonio del Señor en esta tierra”.— Matthew Davies es director y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

@YQRamos/Twitter(MIAMI) — “Baby on board” was given a whole new meaning on one JetBlue flight late Friday.JetBlue flight 1954 was en route from Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in South Florida when a passenger gave birth to a baby boy, airline spokeswoman Tamara Young told Miami ABC affiliate WPLG.The crew and medical professionals on the plane helped to deliver the baby, Young said.The plane left San Juan at 9:44 p.m. AST and landed in Florida two hours and 40 minutes later at 11:24 p.m. EST — with one more passenger added to the itinerary.“We’d like to thank the crew and medical professionals on board for their quick action under pressure, and wish the new mother and son all the best,” Young said.Both mom and baby are doing well, the airline said.Yaqui Ramos, with JetBlue ground operations, shared photos on Twitter of Broward County paramedics attending to the new baby in the jetway bridge at the airport.Coincidentally, the name of the airplane, which Ramos said was newly in service, was “Born to Be Blue.”And even with the new baby on board, the plane arrived 11 minutes early.

Two-Year Prison Sentence Affirmed For Convict With LeukemiaOlivia Covington for www.theindianalawyer.comA divided 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed the two-year sentence handed down to an older man being treated for leukemia, though the dissenting appellate judge had serious questions about the Bureau of Prisons’ ability to meet the man’s medical needs.In USA v. Jeffrey Rothbard, 16-3996, Jeffrey Rothbard was on probation for a forgery conviction when he launched a wire fraud scheme that ultimately earned him more than $200,000 in illegal funds. Acting as an agent of “GreenCity Finance,” Rothbard would purport to arrange for financing for energy saving upgrades for companies wanting to improve their facilities, then would pocket the companies’ deposits for his personal use.After pleading guilty to wire fraud, Judge Richard Young of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana sentenced Rothbard to 24 months in prison. Rothbard challenged his sentence on appeal, questioning the ability of the Bureau of Prisons to care for his health needs.In 2005, Rothbard was diagnosed with a “particularly virulent” form of leukemia, and before his sentencing, Rothbard’s probation officer recommended a more lenient sentence of 12 months’ detention in a halfway house and another 12 months in home confinement due to his illness, which also included mental health concerns. Additionally, Rothbard filed a pre-sentencing memorandum that argued that a custodial sentence would be unreasonable because the BOP could not guarantee that he would receive the medical care he needed.In his sentencing decision, Young considered a letter from a BOP medical director who wrote that inmates who may require daily nursing care can receive services from the Medical Referral Center, which is staffed 24 hours a day and which contracts with community specialists. Additionally, the director said that the BOP permits medical providers to request certain drugs, such as the ones Rothbard uses for his leukemia treatment, through an expedited approval process.The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals granted Rothbard’s request for a stay of his report date, then requested additional information about what Rothbard could expect if he were incarcerated in a BOP facility. Chief Judge Diane Wood noted in a Friday opinion that it is unusual to supplement the record on appeal, but said her court justified taking such a step because the stakes were high.Through the requested additional information, the 7th Circuit learned that since 2010, ten inmates with the same condition as Rothbard have requested the drug prescribed to him, and all 10 requests were approved. Thus, a divided 7th Circuit affirmed Rothbard’s sentence.Judge Richard Posner dissented, writing in a separate opinion that Rothbard was right in his argument that the BOP cannot guarantee adequate medical attention. While the bureau has provided the necessary drug to other inmates suffering from the same condition, it will not commit to providing it to Rothbard, Posner said.“Essentially the prosecution, the district court, and now my colleagues, ask that the Bureau of Prisons be trusted to give the defendant, in a federal prison, the medical treatment that he needs for his ailments,” Posner wrote. “Yet it is apparent from the extensive literature on the medical staff and procedures of the Bureau of Prisons (a literature ignored by my colleagues), that the Bureau cannot be trusted to provide adequate care to the defendant.”Rather than affirming the 24-month sentence, Posner wrote that he would reverse that sentence and instead impose the sentencing recommendation from Rothbard’s probation officer, or reverse and remand the case with instructions to “appoint neutral expert witnesses drawn both from the medical profession and from academic analysis of prison practices and conditionsFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail

Matthew Lenko came in 2nd spelling the word “arithmetic”. Liam Goucher came in 3rd. In preparation for the Spelling Bee each 5th grade class held practice spelling bees. Christine Franckle coordinated the efforts of the fifth grade teachers at the Intermediate School. Teachers chose both spelling and vocabulary words from novels the students are reading. From those practice spelling bees the teachers recommended five students from each class. An alternate from each class was also recommended to participate.For the actual Spelling Bee competition, the word list came from the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Club.The top local winner will go on to compete in the New Jersey Federation of Women sponsored spelling bee on March 4th, in New Brunswick, New Jersey.Principal Geoff Haines did a fabulous job reading the words and providing a context sentence when asked.
