Egypt "Disinvites" Israel to Cancer Meet

Israel's top, internationally recognized hospitals have patients from all over the world, especially Arabs.  Successive Israeli governments consider it a great chessed, charity/service to save lives.  So it's an added international/diplomatic insult that Egypt has recinded its invitations to Israeli doctors who had been invited to an international conference of the American group Susan G. Komen for the Cure – the world's largest breast cancer advocacy organization.

Egypt's "peace" with Israel is cold at best.  And remember that just yesterday I reported on the anti-Israel statements by Jordan's King Abdullah, another faux friend.

Back to breast cancer, as soon as I saw this article last night, I thought of our very own jblogger, RivkA, who blogs about her illness, struggles and how she lives as normal a life as possible between doctors, exams and treatments.
