Yesterday I noted the accusation by an anti-Israeli LGBT activist writing in The New York Times that Israel engages in “pinkwashing,” the promotion of its not-gay bashing, not-gay stoning, not-gay hating policies to cover up its suppression of Palestinians.
How long before Israel is accused of tanish-pinkwashing for publicizing a recent medical breakthrough by Israeli scientists in creating a new type of artificial pancreas treatment regimen:
Apparently for the first time in the world, a recent research study on children with type 1 (insulin-dependent, juvenile- onset) diabetes aimed at creating an effective artificial pancreas to produce insulin was held not in a hospital but in a hotel.
The clinical trial was conducted by specialists at the Schneider Children’s Medical Center (SCMC) at the Kibbutz Ma’aleh Hahamisha Hotel outside Jerusalem. The prospective, crossover study, in which the whole group receive the treatment but at different times, was part of the three-day DREAM (Diabetes wireless Artificial pancreas consortium) Camp for Children with Diabetes.
It consisted of 18 kids aged 12 to 15 years; nine of them were were connected to the artificial pancreas system on the first night of the camp, while eight were connected on the second night. The benefit of being in a hotel rather than a hospital ward was that the more pleasant, non-threatening environment made the results more accurate.
Tanish-pink washing. Evil, just evil.
You don’t see Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, and the Mullahs in Iran using all their medical breakthroughs for propaganda purposes.
Just another reason to Boycott Divest and Sanction Israel.
