While the UN bombs Libya ....

Israel's Shaare Zedek Medical Center’s Deputy Director-General, Dr. Ofer Merin, was dispatched to Japan as part of the IDF Homefront Command’s humanitarian relief program in the wake of the devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Dr. Merin, a cardiothoracic surgeon who directs the Hospital’s disaster preparedness program and its Trauma Unit, is now serving as the Director of Surgical Operations in the IDF Field Hospital that is already on-site. He performed a very similar role in Haiti in January of 2010, following the devastating earthquake there.
