Hadassah Medical Center Receives Accolades from Founder of French Institute of International Affairs

Finding himself in the Ophthalmology Department at Hadassah Hospital-Ein Kerem with an eye problem needing urgent care, Founder of the French Institute of International Affairs Dominique Moisi witnessed “the most comforting and hopeful signs that I have encountered in the entire region in many years.”

During his seven-hour stay at Hadassah, Mr. Moisi was touched by the senior Israelis citizens playing with young Palestinian children, the Palestinian doctors and nurses treating Jewish and Arab patients, and the Israeli doctors and nurses attending to the needs of Arab patients. “It was as if the ill were behaving in a healthy way,” he says, “whereas, outside of the hospital, the healthy were behaving pathologically.”

The author of The Geopolitics of Emotion: How Cultures of Fear, Humiliation, and Hope are Reshaping the World, Mr. Moisi shared his sentiments in Project Syndicate, an on-line publication that features “original, engaging, and thought-provoking commentaries by esteemed leaders and thinkers from around the world.”
