Australian Doctor Arrested in Failed Car Bombings

The doctor is being investigated in connection with terror activities, Mr. Keelty said, but “Dr. Haneef may have done nothing wrong, and may at the end of the day be free to go.”

Whether or not this individual was involved in the plot, the involvement of MDs or medical students in terror attacks can be quite disconcerting.

Those who are in positions of trust and who violate that trust, even in the smallest way smear an entire profession and erode the confidence of the public.

Moreover, innocent and hardworking foreign MDs practicing in western countries may find continuing their practices difficult, at best.

The effect of Islamic terrorism is much more than just a bombing. Even a failed bombing can create doubt in the public consciousness and this effect repeated over and over will have the net effect of successful bombings.
