HomeCOVID-19The scandal of Israel’s vaccine bondage

The scandal of Israel’s vaccine bondage

-

LAST weekend, Jews all over the world commemorated Passover, the tale of slavery and redemption, reading the story of Exodus from their Haggadahs.  

Reading these words from my own ancient book: ‘The Lord heard our voice, and observed our affliction, our sorrow and our oppression’, I cried at the resonance to our plight today. 

We may not be in chains like the ancient Israelites were in Egypt, but we too are enslaved – in a medical tyranny, under house arrest and threatened with mandatory vaccines, all for a virus with a low mortality rate. 

No more is this obvious than in Israel, a country which symbolises freedom and resilience. A friend tells a friend when they are going down the wrong path. The Israeli government has made colossal mistakes in tackling Covid-19 and – like our own – is digging in rather than reversing. Israelis are now the world’s Petri dish for the global heinous experiment in unproven vaccines. 

In a mass betrayal of privacy, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a deal with Pfizer to give the pharmaceutical company the personal data of Israeli citizens in exchange for preferential treatment and additional vaccines. 

Just like the British government, the Israel parliament, the Knesset, has the drugs to push on to its citizens. More than half of Israelis have already had the vaccine, but more are being forced to have it with the introduction of the now infamous ‘green passports’.

This elegant name doesn’t hide the fact that these make the vaccine mandatory and neither does it obscure the fact that this is an inappropriate response to a virus which is said to have a 99 per cent recovery rate and a 0.1 – 0.5 per cent fatality rate for the under-55s. 

There is not enough data on the side-effects or efficiency of the vaccine. Albert Bourla, the Pfizer CEO, called Israel the ‘world’s lab’. His words are diabolical given how many Jews suffered and died from medical experiments in Nazi concentration camps.  

The green passports are valid for only six months, meaning that Israelis may need further vaccinations. This can only be good news for Pfizer shareholders and bad news for the immune systems of Israelis.  

Given that the vaccines aren’t effective in stopping transmission, and the median age of death with Covid-19 is 83, it’s questionable why healthy people are being bullied into taking an unnecessary vaccine. Only in our dystopian present can children and pregnant women be hounded into taking a vaccine which will not finish its safety trial until 2023. 

Despite the hysteria from various politicians about ineffectual ‘mutant strains’, a campaign of mandatory, experimental vaccines is dangerous and not demanded by the death rate of the virus.

All this raises the question of why Netanyahu was so eager to do this deal with Pfizer and implement mandatory vaccines. Israel is a tiny country, with a population of 9.2million packed together in just 8,630 square miles. Being surrounded by hostile neighbours means a health crisis is also a security crisis for the Jewish state. 

The Iranian-backed Hezbollah menaces Israel from Syria and Lebanon. Islamic jihadists abound in the Sinai Peninsula, where Israel has a fragile peace with Egypt. Hamas-controlled Gaza is a constant threat, as are the Palestinian terrorists in the West Bank. Israel can’t afford to have a sickly population defending its borders. 

Some Israelis are descendants of Jews who fled the pogroms from the Pale of Settlement in western Russia. The first refugees to come to the new state of Israel were Holocaust survivors, followed by almost a million Mizrahi refugees expelled from MENA (Middle East and North Africa) lands.  

Persecution and genocide are inescapable facts of Jewish, and Israeli, history and experience. There is still intergenerational trauma at the idea (however misplaced) of a mass death threat. Fear persists and this could account for the Israeli government’s extreme overreaction to the virus and its misguided vaccination campaign. 

Covid-19 is potentially lethal to the elderly. So it’s understandable that the Israeli government would want to protect them, including the 189,500 remaining Holocaust survivors.  But Israel is a young country, both in statehood age and demographics. In 2020 only 12 per cent of Israelis were 65 and older. The average age is 29.5 years.  

Given that young people without comorbidities have very little chance of dying from Covid-19, it means mandatory vaccines are unnecessary. Yet the Israeli government is still pushing ahead, violating the Nuremberg Code with green passports.

The Nuremberg Code was written after the Holocaust to ensure that no human is ever again a victim of medical experiments. There can, of course, be no comparison to the Holocaust. Any attempts to do so are to trivialise it. But, as some of my fellow Jews have noted, there are similarities to the way the Nazis dehumanised the Other, the Jews. It’s abhorrent that Jews are now enduring another experiment in the form of unproven vaccines.  

The unvaccinated are being turned into second-class citizens, scorned and mocked, unable to access shops or their place of work. Coercion to take an experimental vaccine, whether in the form of threats or psychological manipulation, grossly contravenes the Nuremberg Code too. 

It’s getting harder to criticise comparisons between vaccine passports and Nazi strategies when Jews themselves are starting to point this out. Worried Israelis have taken to the streets to protest, holding up placards accusing the government of medical apartheid and comparing green passports to the tattooed arms of concentration camp prisoners. 

Anshei Emet, a group of doctors, lawyers and activists, has reported its concerns over the Israeli government’s policy of mandatory vaccines to the International Court of Justice. A new political party called Rappeh stood in the recent Israeli election, its manifesto focusing on opposition to lockdowns and vaccine passports.  

Further pushback against the Knesset’s Covid-19 laws happened in March, when the Israeli Supreme Court overruled the government’s restriction on the number of passengers allowed to enter the country daily, and said that the requirement for permission to travel was illegal.

Israeli Dr Hervé Seligmann and engineer Haim Yativ, two experts working at a French institute specialising in infectious diseases, have questioned the official Israeli data over vaccine injuries and deaths. They claim that the vaccines have killed more than Covid-19 and that they see this as a ‘new Holocaust’.    

An unfortunate but predicable consequence of Israel’s mandatory vaccine policy has been the surge in anti-Semitism, especially on social media, making the whole debacle even more tragic.  

Should Israel fall to medical tyranny, then it’s likely that many other countries, including Britain, will too. But given the rising resistance by brave Israelis, I have faith that we will see redemption from this bondage of mandatory vaccines.
