The article presents experience of the author in Palesinian Medical Relief Society, formerly the Union of Palestinian Medical Relief Committees. Despite the danger, a great deal of fun is enjoyed in the ambulance, and the satisfaction of outwitting the gangsters who have occupied this glorious city of Nablus is considerable. There is underlying fear and anxiety because the Israeli "soldiers" are so unpredictable. Some 4,000 good people, innocent of any crime under international law, have been murdered by the illegal Israeli occupiers of their land over the past four years.
