Dr. Yair Birnbaum, deputy director-general of the Hadassah Medical Organization, has received telephone death threats over the case of the haredi mother suspected of starving her three-year-old son. Israel Radio reported Sunday night that police were taking the threats extremely seriously and that security guards were protecting the doctor. The boy is hospitalized at Hadassah Ein Kerem in Jerusalem. The hospital declined to comment on the death threats, merely stating that since his mother's arrest, the boy's condition had continued to improve and he had continued to gain weight.
