|WHAT BOYCOTT? SAUDI PRINCESS SAVED BY ISRAELI MEDI|
Arab Princess Getting Royal Treatment at Israeli Hospital
by David Lev
A daughter to one of the royal families in the Persian Gulf is in Israel undergoing a complicated heart operation, according to Knesset Member Ayoub Kara.
The royal patient insisted on undergoing the procedure here - after her doctors recommended one of Israel's leading hospitals as the best place to undergo the operation. For security and other reasons, the name of the hospital has not been published.
MK Kara said he was contacted by a Druze doctor who has been working in Europe for decades, along with the head of a well-known European medical center, and was asked if he could help the princess enter Israel for the operation. After discussing the situation with Interior Ministry officials, Kara was able to secure an entry visa for the patient, he said, and she landed here last Thursday, accompanied by her husband and her personal doctor. She checked into the hospital Sunday, and the operation is set to take place Tuesday.
