'What security threat do I pose to Israel if I go for an exam at Tel Hashomer?' Abu Nahla wonders. 'At the hospital entrance they take my identity card and exit permit. I can’t just go out for a stroll.'


Nadia Abu Nahla (Bakri), 52, who survived breast cancer, is very late for the periodic medical checkup she needs. In 2009, she was successfully treated at Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer. She underwent chemotherapy, an operation, radiation; she asked and received exit permits for all stages. Of all her family, only her mother was permitted to accompany her.

[...] When she asked for an exit permit ahead of the date, she received, to her shock, a reply in the negative. “Refused,” went the decision.
