Israel PM Says Unvaccinated Endanger Country, Will Be Segregated From Society
Israel’s Prime Minister Naftali Bennett declared that unvaccinated citizens will be restricted from participating in society until they get the COVID shot.
In a speech to the nation Thursday, Bennett insisted that citizens who have refused the shot are endangering the entire country and must be segregated from society, or more lockdowns will be imposed.
“There’s a time and place when this discussion has to stop,” Bennett said in the primetime address. “Science is clear: the vaccines work, they’re effective, they’re safe.”
“One million Israelis are refusing to get vaccinated. They are endangering the entire population, they are endangering the other 8 million citizens in the country.”
“Vaccine refusers are endangering everyone else’s health, the people around them, and the freedom of all Israelis. They’re threatening our freedom to work, the freedom of our children to learn,” he continued.
“Those who refuse vaccines hurt us all because if all of us were vaccinated, we would all be able to maintain daily life. But if 1 million Israelis continue to not get vaccinated, this will oblige the 8 million others to shut themselves in their homes.”
Unvaccinated people therefore will be prohibited from participating in activities with over 100 people, including going to synagogue, Bennett said, unless they provide a negative COVID test at their own expense.
“The Corona Cabinet decided today, that as of August 8, those who refuse vaccines will not be able to go to the cinema, the theater, the synagogue, the amusement park, the soccer game, or any activity with over 100 people, indoors or out, unless they bring negative results from a coronavirus test, at their expense, ” Bennett stated.
Bennett also pressured vaccinated Israeli’s to pressure their loved ones who are still skeptical of getting jabbed.
“If you know a vaccine refuser, convince them, explain to them that they are risking others’ health. Don’t give up on them,” Bennett said.
The Prime Minister also declared that Israel’s “Green Pass” program would be reinstated July 29, after the program was dropped last month in the wake of falling COVID cases.
Bennett’s announcement comes as COVID cases are spiking in the country due to the spread of the “Delta” variant.
But what Bennett failed to mention is that half of the “breakthrough” cases in the country have occurred in vaccinated people.
Fortunately, protests erupted across Israel over Bennett’s draconian announcement.
