This is a story that you will not read in the New York Times.
And you had better believe that NPR--ground zero for Israel-hatred in the media--will stick fingers in their ears and shout, "Nyah, nyah, nyah."
And the reason the liberal media will make believe this never happened is because it tells decent people everything they need to know about the moral calculus of Israel/Jews in contrast to the moral depravity that characterizes Arab Muslim society and their western enablers.
In the town of Neve Tzuf, just a few yards from Itamar where the Fogel family are sitting shiva, a pregnant Arab mother and her infant were saved by Jews.
Look for the Palestinian media to completely deny this story.
IDF forces and local paramedics helped save the life of a Palestinian woman and her newly born infant Wednesday, at the settlement where Fogel relatives are sitting Shiva for the five Israelis brutally murdered last week.
Just as IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz arrived in Neve Tzuf to offer his condolences, a Palestinian cab raced towards the community's entrance. In it, soldiers and paramedics discovered a Palestinian woman in her 20s in advanced stages of labor and facing a life-threatening situation: The umbilical cord was wrapped around the young baby girl's neck, endangering both her and her mother.
The quick action of settler paramedics and IDF troops deployed in the area saved the mother's and baby's life, prompting great excitement and emotions at the site where residents are still mourning the brutal death of five local family members.
Corporal Haim Levin, 19, an IDF paramedic, was the first medical team member at the scene and recounted the dramatic situation he faced.
"When I arrived, I saw a woman covered by a blanket in a yellow Palestinian van. I moved closer and saw the baby's head and upper body," he told Ynet. "The umbilical cord was around the baby's neck; the baby was grey and didn't move."
"I first removed the cord from the neck and at the same time asked paramedics to prepare the baby resuscitation kit. I pinched her to see if she's responding, and she started to cry," he said. Paramedics also treated the mother, who was in good condition at that point, Levin said.

Stories abound of Palestinian children and mothers dying at Israeli check points for lack of medical attention.
These stories are lies, blood libels spread by those who use anti-Zionism as a political cover for old fashioned Jew-hatred.
One of those who regularly spreads this blood libel is Jeremiah Wright, for over 20-years Barack Obama's spiritual advisor, the man who performed the Obama marriage ceremony, the man who baptized the Obama children.
I'm not even going to comment on Wright's interpretation of the Jewish prophet Micah as a socialist or Marxist. Wright is, to put it mildly, an ignoramus. His knowledge of Torah, of the social conditions of ancient Israel and Jewish prophesy are worthy of an amoeba. Instead, at about the 2:35 mark, pay attention as Wright lablels Israel an apartheid state and then goes on to the blood libel about Israeli check-points--which have saved scores of Jewish lives.
Contrary to Wright's assertion, Zionism is a central tenet of Judaism. Wright is just disguising his deeply felt Jew-hatred--shared by his good friend Louis Farrakhan--by falsely separating Judaism from Zionism.
