Israël : un bébé musulman sauvé grâce au don d’organe d’un bébé juif décédé
La vie d’un bébé musulman a été sauvée grâce à un don d’organe d’un bébé juif décédé dans des conditions particulièrement tragiques, rapporte Israël Hayom.
Zohar Ergaz, 11 mois, est mort noyé dans son bain la semaine dernière. Le Centre médical Schneider pour enfants, de Petah Tikva, a proposé à ses parents une transplantation d’organe pour sauver la vie d’un autre bébé, Muhammad Mujahed, 7 mois, de Jérusalem, en attente d’une greffe du foie. Malgré la douleur, les parents n’ont pas hésité.
L’opération s’est parfaitement déroulée jeudi. Le nourrisson, toujours en observation, est dans un état stable. Les parents de Mujahed ont remercié la famille Ergaz et leur ont adressé leurs condoléances.
The news tells us less about Israel than about the people writing the news, a former AP reporter says.
During the Gaza war this summer, it became clear that one of the most important aspects of the media-saturated conflict between Jews and Arabs is also the least covered: the press itself. The Western press has become less an observer of this conflict than an actor in it, a role with consequences for the millions of people trying to comprehend current events, including policymakers who depend on journalistic accounts to understand a region where they consistently seek, and fail, to productively intervene.
An essay I wrote for Tablet on this topic in the aftermath of the war sparked intense interest. In the article, based on my experiences between 2006 and 2011 as a reporter and editor in the Jerusalem bureau of the Associated Press, one of the world’s largest news organizations, I pointed out the existence of a problem and discussed it in broad terms. Using staffing numbers, I illustrated the disproportionate media attention devoted to this conflict relative to other stories, and gave examples of editorial decisions that appeared to be driven by ideological considerations rather than journalistic ones. I suggested that the cumulative effect has been to create a grossly oversimplified story—a kind of modern morality play in which the Jews of Israel are displayed more than any other people on earth as examples of moral failure. This is a thought pattern with deep roots in Western civilization.
But how precisely does this thought pattern manifest itself in the day-to-day functioning, or malfunctioning, of the press corps? To answer this question, I want to explore the way Western press coverage is shaped by unique circumstances here in Israel and also by flaws affecting the media beyond the confines of this conflict. In doing so, I will draw on my own experiences and those of colleagues. These are obviously limited and yet, I believe, representative.

Tel-aviv museum of art
Up in the Air, by Tom Friedman (born in St. Louis, MO, 1965), is the third in a series of site-specific installations at the Lightfall. Comprising 900 items suspended from the ceiling, at first glance they seem to be ready-made; in fact, they are all painstakingly and carefully hand-crafted. The result is a gigantic, scattered still life, representing the world of objects, forms and images of early 21st century. The installation was first exhibited in 2010 at Magasin III, Stockholm.
Zaz Festival is an annual event of "'Performance Art Platform", which hosts performance artists from around the world. The artists perform in different locations, with different geographical and environmental characteristics, and in front of varied audiences and communities.
This is a dynamic and experimental laboratory of live art that moves between different physical and human spaces and between various forms of action, including multiple sites; actions on the streets and in public buildings that, lectures and workshops
