40 babies were killed, and 400 children were infected with HIV = (440 victims).
All this because of some nurses and doctors ignorance and misconduct. Actually, If you were really following this issue from the begining, you would have noticed that it has been proven during the trial that most of the nurses and doctors were working many times under the effect of "self-made" alcohol drinks.
So what do you expect?
Isn't death sentence still widely experienced in many fine countries worldwide(i.e, USA)?
I've heard of people sentenced to death in the US for killing not more than 1 or 2 people. so what?
These doctors and nurses got a normal and open trial, and they still have the right to appeal just like in any other healthy system in the world, nothing is final for them yet.
So, I still don't understand what is the main reason behind this thread, could you please be more clear?
Are you with or against the verdict?
what other suggestions do you have?
If you just want to prove your anti-Arab direction, I assure to you that this wasn't the good example.
Do you have children RONEN?
I didn't say it would be easy. I just said it would be the truth

I don't think the point of his thread is to be Anti-Arab. He is commenting his beliefs about a story in the news. None of us were there in 1998 or so when the offense was said to occur, so anything we say is merely speculation. I read that the co-discoverer of the HIV virus said that the children were infected in 1997, a year before the Bulgarians were even hired to work in the hospital. If indeed they infected the kids for some experiment then I think they'll get what's coming to them. However I don't think they are getting a fair trial, and them being tortured and assaulted is ridiculous.

If the charges are true, then they deserved to be punished. Not with the death penalty though -- sidenote -- interesting to note that an execution hasn't been carried out in Libya for 9 years -- probably shows that this is not a sentence that would be handed out all too often in Libya.

Cedarwings, You are drawing conclusions about RONEN that are not fair. He is merely pointing out the fact that he finds the punishment for those nurses and doctors as harsh given the questionable circumstances about their conviction. Assuming that because its Muslim children and RONEN is Israeli , and that therefore they have no worth to him is wrong. Making a gross generalization that Israelis all want Muslims dead, and don't care about horrible things that happen to Muslims is wrong. These are exactly the kinds of things that breed hate between different groups of people. Because one or some members of a group are one way does not mean that is the way of the entire group. Just because someone is a Muslim dose not make him a terrorist. Just because someone is Jewish or Israeli does not make him a Muslim hater.
I myself have a tremendous respect for the religion of Islam, and I plan on taking a few classes so I can learn more about it. Someone's religion does not have any effect on what kind of person they are, or how they should be treated. Everyone in the world has a right to practice whatever religion they choose. I will never pick who I associate with based on their religion. I have friends who are Baptist, Hindu, Methodist, Lutheran, and Episcopalian. My girlfriend is Catholic, and I myself am Jewish. Its a shame that it is a common though that all Jews/Israelis hate Muslims, because that's really not the case.

You're throwing out some awful strong accusations against RONEN and other users here.
If you actually read what he said, you would see that he is questioning the penalty and the sentence. Where in the world has this turned into Anti-Arab thread deserving of your accusations? Lighten up a bit dude.
