Ignoring any Secular law issues,

Is a Jew obligated to save the life of a wicked non Jew? Does it make a difference whether his refusal will become publicly known?


If a non-Jew who is a rasha got cancer and went to a Jewish oncologist then may the oncologist refuse to treat him? Is there an obligation for the oncologist to treat the non-Jew or an obligation to refuse him treatment? What is the halacha on this?

  • @Al Berko Mine was deleted as well. I simply asked whether the person who downvoted the question please provide a reason. – Natanav Feb 10 '19 at 19:18
  • This site is extremely cautious about Jews-nonJ relations, esp not favorable ones, deleting everything that might be discriminating the laters. I'm glad you've read it before it was deleted. But that's the truth. – Al Berko Feb 10 '19 at 19:33
  • @Al Berko I thing the Gemara says something on the lines of - "if the non-jews found out everything that the Torah says they would hate the Jews even more". I can't find the source but it would justify the censorship on the site. – Natanav Feb 10 '19 at 19:39
