Israel is already sending medical aid to Ebola hit countries, but has decided not to send medical crews or set up field hospitals, citing fear of infection
Israel has rejected a special request by the United States and United Nations to send IDF field hospitals to Ebola hit Liberia and Sierra Leone. Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, who rejected the request, cited the threat of infection to Israeli medical teams in explaining his decision. Say what you like about the Jews, they certainly aren't stupid. Of course, if the United States tried to do what Israel is doing, it would be condemned as racist.
