The European media deliberately and for unjustifiable reasons rarely highlights these annual medical conferences aimed by ARABMED to discuss new topics of medicine that would make the treatment service better for European citizens.
In Europe there is a large group of Arab doctors who are equal in their qualifications and in the provision of medical services in clinics and hospitals with their European colleagues. These doctors deserve that their achievements are highlighted during the annual meetings which they hold, and that this information is honestly transferred as news to the general public; these Arab doctors are in all European countries, working silently and even advancing the medical practice, and it is not just or objective that the media is deliberately ignoring their meetings which are held in various parts of Europe, while the same media deliberately and for non-innocent reasons continue hunting in the troubled waters and highlighted marginal issues like the Hijab to the public opinion, just as if it were the ONLY sign and symbol of the presence of Arabs in Europe.
In the EU there are doctors, university professors, engineers, lawyers, journalists and other professionals of Arab or Muslim background who are part of the society, and the Arab or Muslim presence is certainly not limited to what the yellow media and note-takers reports.
