Israeli officials approved entry to Israel for a three-week-old Iraqi baby in need of lifesaving heart surgery, a complex procedure not available in neighboring countries. "Sam Muhammad and his mother had been waiting in Jordan for the permission to be treated in Haifa. Entry for four other Iraqi children in need of heart surgery, along with four escorts, were also approved. Muhammad was born with transposition of the great arteries and must be operated on within the next several days." (Jerusalem Post ) Link submitted by Daniel Keebler
