Hadas Ziv, Vice President of Ethics at the Physicians for Human Rights Association, said in response: "We are happy that finally, after a forced leave of over two months, the management of Hadassah came to their senses and returned Dr. Mahajana to his job. It is a shame that the hospital did not come to its senses sooner and He responded to the requests of many inside and outside the hospital. With this conduct, the Hadassah administration hurt Dr. Mahajana, the hospital staff in general, and his Palestinian staff in particular.

This trust will now be difficult to rebuild.

" "Dr. Mahajana's story is not only his personal story, Lutz's is the story of a healthcare system severely infected with racism," added Ziv, "a doctor's identity as a Palestinian is enough to deny him her support. The only bright spot in the case is the exciting expressions of support shown by many medical teams from all over the country. I hope that many more will learn the necessary lessons from this, and go out in the fight to eradicate the scourge of racism in the health system and in Israeli society in general."

Shay Glick, CEO of "Bezalmo" said: "I welcome Dr. Mahajana's return to work. Doctor Mahajana is adamantly opposed to terrorism and violence, and there was a misunderstanding of the incident that happened. As I agreed with him in the coming days, he will even put up a post online The social network Facebook where he will call on all his followers to always walk peacefully and oppose all violence and terrorism."
