Who Is Mohammed Moiz Qureshi?
We are extremely disturbed to see ER physician Mohammed Moiz Qureshi refer to the Jewish people and nation as Nazis, both deemed antisemitic by the IHRA definition of antisemitism.

Frisco, Texas, emergency department doctor Dr. Mohammed Moiz Qureshi has drawn criticism for reportedly speaking in an anti-Semitic manner. The accusations stem from remarks that Dr. Qureshi is said to have made labeling Jews and the country as Nazis. The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) considers this to be antisemitic language.
Dr. Qureshi has worked in a number of nearby hospitals, such as Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Centennial and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2017 with a medical degree, and his areas of expertise include internal and emergency medicine. Additionally, he has ties to the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center at Penn State.
The allegations have prompted questions about the safety of Jewish patients under his care. Reviews on his WebMD page on October 27, 2023, cast doubt on his ability to provide compassionate, well-rounded medical care and characterized him as antisemitic. Concerns over the impact of personal beliefs on patient treatment were raised by the remarks.
Investigations into the claims are anticipated, and more information will clarify how this case turns out.
As of October 27, 2023, Israeli troops have expanded their operations in the Gaza Strip and have been engaged in combat with Hamas terrorists. With broad backing, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution urging an urgent humanitarian truce in Gaza. Telephone communications have been hindered by the fighting, making emergency response difficult.
There are worries of a ground invasion of Gaza due to Israel’s actions. There are growing worries about a worsening humanitarian situation even as Israel vows to eliminate Hamas’ military capabilities. The situation has heightened tensions between nations and sparked worries about the world’s supply of crude oil.
The situation is still unstable, despite ongoing efforts to find a peaceful settlement, and foreign players are keenly observing events.
