VACCINE FOR PALESTINE
WASHINGTON — Senator Bernie Sanders criticized the Israeli government for distributing the COVID-19 vaccine in countries with which it has strengthened relations in recent years, before sending vaccines to Palestinians.
“As an occupying power, Israel is responsible for the health of all people under its control,” Sanders wrote. «It’s outrageous that Netanyahu used spare vaccines to reward his foreign allies while so many Palestinians in the occupied territories are still waiting.»
Israeli officials reportedly sent a request last week to the Palestinian Authority and the Jerusalem Muslim Waqf to allow the Israeli government to open a coronavirus vaccination station in the Temple Mount, but the request was denied.
The station was supposed to vaccinate predominantly Palestinian pilgrims visiting the Temple Mount.
First, Israel has donated thousands of doses of vaccine to Palestinian leaders and Palestinian health workers. Second, anti-Semites donate vaccines to Palestinians free of charge or pay for their purchases.
It is beneficial for the Palestinians not to reconcile with Israel precisely because they are being paid to fight against Israel. Now the anti-Semites are demanding that we, too, pay the Palestinians to fight against ourselves. Because they don’t have enough money for missiles.
Conclusion: not Israel, but Palestine is the aggressor and occupier. Palestinians are occupying part of Israel on behalf of the «world community» of anti-Semites. And they do not stop trying to throw us to the sea.
