A major crisis occurred today at the King Khaled National Guard Hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
It turns out that somehow paper cups made in Israel were found in the hospital.
JEDDAH, 22 August 2005 — Paper cups with Hebrew writing disturbed both employees and medical staff at King Khaled National Guard Hospital on Saturday. The catering subcontractor for the hospital coffee shops began using them on Saturday after their usual supply ran out.
“We were shocked and angry,” said an employee. “How can Israeli products be allowed and how did they enter this hospital?” he asked.
The Filipino employee who works in the Al-Musbah coffee shop asked: “Why is everybody mad about the cups?” He was told: “Because they are made in Israel!”
According to hospital officials, the matter is being investigated and action will be taken.
Heads will roll.
