An article by Daniel Williams ("Israeli Doctors and Arabs: Politics, Ethics in Collision," Part I, Jan. 23) paints a distorted picture of the availability of health care for Palestinian Arabs of Judea, Samaria and Gaza.

Since 1913 Hadassah has provided health care of the very highest quality to all who come to us in need--Jews, Christians, Muslims, Druze--regardless of their ethnic origin, religious and political beliefs or ability to pay. Throughout eight decades, as the Hadassah Medical Organization has grown to become Israel's largest and finest health-care complex, that policy has remained unchanged.

And Kolleck was stunned when the elderly black woman--and devout Baptist--asked him in Hebrew to pose for a picture. "He looked at me and told me, 'You have your picture,' " Drake said. "I remember that, because I loved the expression on his face."

Shlomo Mor-Yosef moves quickly and with determination through the crowd of journalists camped out on the paved driveway of Hadassah hospital. His gaze is fixed straight ahead, flashing cameras trailing him and onlookers pointing with recognition. Mor-Yosef, a no-nonsense, bespectacled gynecologist, has become the voice and furrow-browed face of one of modern Israel's most wrenching dramas: the life-and-death struggle of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

To his Leisure World neighbors, Simon Lechtuz seemed the penniless eccentric--a disheveled lifelong bachelor who seldom changed clothes and sought treasure in trash containers around Laguna Hills. Little did they know Lechtuz was a millionaire who, in the final years of his life, had agreed to leave his $5-million fortune to the government of Israel in exchange for his burial there with full religious observance.
