• We all should weep….

    Oh, Israel. You have behaved disgracefully.

    A government official has for the first time acknowledged the practice of injecting women of Ethiopian origin with the long-acting contraceptive Depo-Provera.

    Health Ministry Director General Prof. Ron Gamzu has instructed the four health maintenance organizations to stop the practice as a matter of course.

    The ministry and other state agencies had previously denied knowledge or responsibility for the practice, which was first reported five years ago.

    First reported: Five. Years. Ago.

    And this.

    About six weeks ago, on an Educational Television program journalist Gal Gabbay revealed the results of interviews with 35 Ethiopian immigrants. The women’s testimony could help explain the almost 50-percent decline over the past 10 years in the birth rate of Israel’s Ethiopian community. According to the program, while the women were still in transit camps in Ethiopia they were sometimes intimidated or threatened into taking the injection. “They told us they are inoculations,” said one of the women interviewed. “They told us people who frequently give birth suffer. We took it every three months. We said we didn’t want to.”

    I post this on Holocaust Remembrance Day and feel revulsion nearly comparable to the terrible day when those babies were murdered in Newtown.

    Oh, Israel. How could you? How could you?

      lol. Of course they did it… Israel is an apartheid state and a broad base of the Israeli population clearly doesn’t respect its minorities and is interested in apartheid policies and practices: http://tinyurl.com/9d3rg5c

      A new poll has revealed that a majority of Israeli Jews believe that the Jewish State practises “apartheid” against Palestinians, with many openly supporting discriminatory policies against the country’s Arab citizens.

      A new poll has revealed that a majority of Israeli Jews believe that the Jewish State practises “apartheid” against Palestinians, with many openly supporting discriminatory policies against the country’s Arab citizens.

      A third of respondents believe that Israel’s Arab citizens should be denied the vote, while almost half – 47 per cent – would like to see them stripped of their citizenship rights and placed under Palestinian Authority control, according to Israel’s liberal Haaretz newspaper, which published the poll’s findings yesterday.

      About 20 per cent of Israel’s nearly eight million people are Israeli Arabs, Palestinians who hold Israeli citizenship and live within the borders of Israel proper. The views echo hardline opinions usually associated with Israel’s ultranationalist and ultraorthodox parties, and suggest that racism and discrimination is more entrenched than generally thought.

      The poll, conducted by Israel’s Dialog polling group, found that 59 per cent out of the 503 people questioned would like to see Jews given preference for public-sector jobs, while half would like to see Jews better treated than Arabs.

      I am, at this point in my life, incredibly regretful of my 1970’s and 1980’s support of Israel.

    • Is it also their plan to get a scientifically illiterate population to distrust all purported vaccines? Can’t see any way that would backfire…
