Arab MK slams US liberal over post spreading fear of Zionist doctors

Jacob Magid is The Times of Israel's US bureau chief

Arab-Israeli MK Ahmed Tibi slams a far-left American who claimed patients should fear Zionist doctors.

“Realizing how many American doctors and nurses are Zionists and genuinely terrified for Palestinian, Arab, Muslim, South Asian and Black patients — even more than usual,” Saira Rao wrote in a Monday X post that has received more than 6 million views.

“Stop spreading lies, especially against the healthcare system. This is racism,” Tibi, a Hadash-Ta’al MK and gynecologist, tweets in Hebrew.

A community note has been added to Rao’s post, calling her claim “a classic antisemitic trope.”
