As of writing this article, 75.4% of Israel’s new Covid-19 cases are under 39. Only 5.5% were over 60. Only 59.9% of critical patients are over 60 years old. 40% are under 60. The country has also detected a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases amongst pregnant women. Many are in hospital, with 8 currently in critical condition.

In Israel, cases in new-born Covid-19 have seen a significant 1300% spike (from 400 cases in under two-year-olds on November 20 to 5,800 in February 2021).

Israel’s Covid-19 cases per capita spiked sharply and were amongst the highest in the world (if not the highest) during the first month of the ‘successful’ mass vaccination campaign. Within two months of intensive inoculation with the Pfizer vaccine, Israel managed to double the number of deaths it accumulated in the prior ten months of the pandemic. We are talking about 2, 700 Israeli citizens, a similar number to the amount of IDF soldiers who died in the Yom Kippur war, supposedly the most traumatizing event in modern Israeli history.

When I presented these numbers to UK Column’s David Scott just two days ago his reaction was direct and lucid: “what you describe here is, really, a new disease.” I am afraid that Scott was correct. This is exactly what we see in Israel.

Yesterday I watched Ynet’s live discussion with Professor Nachman Ash, the Israeli ‘Covid-19 chief.’ During the online discussion, Prof. Ash attempted to address Israelis’ concerns regarding the Covid-19 situation and the impact of the Pfizer vaccine. Surprisingly (or not), Ash struggled to address most of the questions for obvious reasons. Nobody, including Prof. Ash, knows the answers to most of the crucial questions regarding Covid-19 and the so-called ‘vaccines’.

No one knows how effective the Pfizer substance is going to be in the long term. No one knows how Covid-19 may evolve in the near future. No one knows whether Israelis are about to face a mass ADE (Antibody-dependent enhancement) surge, though hopefully not. What we do know for certain is that the Israeli medical specialists who air such legitimate concerns are subject to some insane abuse and harassment. They can easily lose their medical license for life. Dr Avshalom Karmel, who was brave enough to warn his fellow citizens about the possible consequences of the vaccine, reported in a tweet yesterday: “The Ministry of Health is threatening me, the director of my hospital scolded me…” Is this how we supposed to treat medical professionals in a ‘free’ society?

I listened to the live interview with Professor Ash even though he had really nothing to offer, but then came the question I was waiting for. One Israeli asked Prof. Ash “for how long are you going to hide the fact that we are dealing with an ‘Israeli Mutant’?” The Ynet presenter referred to the question as ‘conspiratorial,’ however Ash admitted that “we are detecting many mutants.” I couldn’t hear a categorical denial.

The truth of the matter is that a discussion about an “Israeli mutant” has been circulating for a while. Back in late January, the IDF’s Intelligence warned that an Israeli Covid-19 mutant is a likely possibility. On 24 January Times of Israel reported that “a military-led task force has warned of the potential emergence of a mutated Israeli variant of the coronavirus resistant to vaccines” and “mass rollout of vaccine amid ongoing outbreak may put ‘evolutionary pressure’ on the coronavirus…”

Examining current Israeli policy suggests the possibility that AMAN (IDF Intelligence) was spot on in its prediction. Judging by the unique and novel symptoms that are associated with Covid-19 in the Jewish State, we are dealing with a disease with novel characteristics. It attacks the young and the pregnant, it gave up on the elderly and vulnerable. The more Israel lowers the age of the vaccinated, the younger the cases, and those cases are growing exponentially.

It is hard to ignore the possibility that the success of the mass vaccination campaign is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s election card. If the campaign proves to be a success by the eve of election day, Bibi is expected to win. Yet, if mass vaccination unveils itself as a disastrous, reckless and politically motivated adventure that has put the entire Israeli population at risk, not only would his political future be destroyed, he would probably see the criminal case against him expanding substantially, and not just in Israel.

I am not in any position to verify whether AMAN’s prophecy regarding the possible emergence of an Israeli mutant has fulfilled itself, but I can try to analyse Israel’s current policies in the light of such a concerning possible development.

1. Israel mounts incredible pressure on every Israeli to take the vaccine. By means of a ‘green passport’ it plans to dramatically limit the freedoms of the unvaccinated and their ability to earn a living. Netanyahu vowed on the 24th of February that, by the 10th of April, every Israeli would be vaccinated. This can obviously be interpreted by some as Bibi’s ‘genuine concern’ for the health of his people. A more cynical explanation is that Bibi now understands that, if there is an Israeli strain triggered by the mass vaccination campaign, the only way to fight it is to vaccinate every living Israeli hopping that the vaccine may reduce illness and death as various studies suggest.

ORDER IT NOW

2. Israel’s International airports, seaports and border crossings remain locked indefinitely. Some Israelis may be able to fly in, but nobody can leave the country. One may wonder why Israelis (or even just the vaccinated) aren’t allowed to leave. One possible explanation is that Israel insists on preventing the leak of a potentially unique Covid-19 strain out of the country. Why doesn’t Israel allow its large community of vaccinated to travel? One possibility is that Israel acknowledges that the vaccinated may be spreading the strain. You may even push it and wonder why Israel cares about spreading a mutant? I don’t know if Israel cares or not, but I know that they have an election in less than a month. Bibi will do whatever it takes to maintain the image of a ground-breaking success in the fight against Covid-19. The Israelis who have been the Guinea pigs in this experiment are asked to keep in line for at least one more month.

3. We learn from different Israeli sources that some issues regarding Israeli Covid-19 policy, including discussions within the Governmental Corona Cabinet, are now subject to 30-year confidentiality laws. In Israel, only matters that are related to national security (such as IDF and Mossad secret operations) enjoy such ‘confidentiality’ status. What is it that the Israeli government and its Prime Minister insist on hiding from his people and the world and why?

There is a growing number of studies that originating in Israel that refer to the vaccine as over 90% successful in preventing the disease and in reducing illness. Yesterday a new study ‘confirmed’ that Pfizer’s vaccine “performed as well in the real world as it did in the clinical trial that led to its use.”

I myself do not have any doubt that the vaccine could be successful in the short term in protecting those who are willing to take it. But I also can’t turn a blind eye to the scary correlation between mass vaccination and exponential rise in Covid-19 cases and deaths that can be detected in every country that engaged in mass vaccination. I cannot turn a blind eye to the undeniable fact that rapid mass vaccination in Israel correlates with a radical shift in the symptoms of Covid-19 to the point that it appears as a ‘new disease all together.’

I therefore ask every responsible person and government to look at the Israeli case with caution and to examine the shift in symptoms as a crucial hazardous event.

If IDF’s AMAN was correct in its warning and Israel is struggling with its own unique strain, then Israel should come clean and announce to the world that this is the case. This is what China and Britain did. This is what California has just done. This is exactly what we expect from a responsible nation, but Bibi may prefer to keep his cards close to his chest. If this is the case, he may have two paths to choose from. One is to lock the country and to prevent the spread of the Israeli variant before the election. The other is to encourage other countries and reckless governments to follow the Israeli path so they eventually develop lethal mutants of their own.

  1. I believe the mutation involved in making SARS-CoV-2 deadlier is the product of lock-downs and vaccines creating artificial selective pressure.

    If so, it’s further proof that we must fight the Tyranny of Corona-Nazis tooth and nail.

  2. Another country degenerating into mass psychosis over the presence or absence of Uracil.

    The important difference between DNA and RNA is that Thyamine of DNA is replaced with Uracil in RNA. (ignoring deoxyribose/ ribose)

    Ignoring the multitudes of other “viruses” present in the human body, the human body
    contains much RNA in its cells: TransferRNA, MessengerRNA and RibosomalRNA. There will be so much more of the body’s RNA that it makes it obvious that any “positive” finds the presence of Uracil.

    So, the RT PCR test will not be able to discern where the Uracil came from!

    Funny, when reading papers of SUPPOSED isolation of SARS-CoV-2, there isn’t any purification, culturing and re-infection in study animals. Not only that, there is no mention of hypercentrifugation of the “isolate” in any paper, and in the CDC’s paper of June 2020, they claim to have isolate pieces of the SARS-CoV-2 from RT PCR test blots.

    Which brings us back to…

    So the over 60 are protecting themselves well (or the vaccine?) only 5.5% of new cases but still 60% of deaths.
    The under 39 year olds account for 75% of cases but nothing about THEIR death rate? Everyone can catch Covid-19 but it is only deadly to the elderly and sickly. This seems to be a favorite way for the media to obfuscate; surely those data are available.
    Very likely the 40% of deaths under age 60 are all in the 50-60 year old range which would be the default view, given Covid-19’s predilection for the Elderly, until shown otherwise.
    Covid-19 mutates constantly and even with a low mutation rate there is so much around and there are some selection pressures, so mutations will accrue. Usually the mutations can be tracked over time and space (the exception was the Brit variant which had 17 mutations yet no “pedigree”. Interesting…)

  14. Stephane says:

    Two things comes to my mind.

    First, there is a delay between COVID infection and death, meaning that the changes in the hospitalisation and death repartition are connected to the situation several weeks earlier.

    Second, if the vaccination is working you can expect a decrease in the number of severe forms but mostly for the vaccinated fraction of the population – which means the elderly – and result in an increase in the proportion of unvaccinated, younger peoples in the hospitalized population.

    Is the ratio between identified cases and severe forms increasing for younger peoples ? If yes, there is a possibility that a variant is on the way. If not (I mean, you have more severe cases, but also more cases and the proportion stays the same) it’s probably reflecting the alteration in the unprotected fraction of the population.

    Also, how many cases are we talking about ? Going up from 4 to 8 is a 100% increase, but not statistically significative.

    The figures post ‘vaccination’ (because it is by no means a conventional vaccine and totally inadequately tested for long term effects) would most certainly be the opposite. So your thesis is doubly, nay multiply, confirmed in this tiny hothouse laboratory.

    Mr. Gatzmon may be spreading more Covid-19 hysteria. No one, no doctor, or scientist has been able to isolate and therefore positively identify the coronavirus. At the Chinese Center of Disease Control, chief epidemiologist, Wu Zunyou stated Jan 23, 2021, ‘We didn’t isolate the virus’. And so how can a vaccine be possible? In the USA, we’re dealing with Covid Test Fraud and fraudulent Covid death statistics.

    Has Israel created it’s own mutant virus? I don’t see how, it couldn’t be a man eating virus. Israel’s scientists may have made a magic potion, poison vaccine that simply impairs the vaccinated which is how we explain the high rate of autism here in the USA and the West. I reference Jon Rappoport’s Blog.

    In the USA, I am convinced the only thing we imported from China is the CCP’s population control protocols of house arrest, social distancing, economic lockdown, and the offensive against the racism of whites. America is moved through the operation of the PsyOp. What Israel has done, because it’s being kept under the radar, is another matter; just make sure it’s not coming here.

    A parting quotation rom the last article –

    I strongly believe Moshiach is already in the world and an adult. This message is for him.
    Whoever you are and wherever you may be, I hope you somehow see this. Please, Moshiach, I beg of you. No matter what…
    Don’t vaccinate!

    Just so you know, I believe Moshiach is the long-awaited Jewish Messiah.

    I don’t know how the Muslim world views him, but Christian tradition is also expecting him to make an appearance, although not necessarily looking forward to it.

    There’s tremendous world-wide political pressure on religious leaders to endorse vaccination. The Sephardi Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef is on board, as is Rabbi Lau, his Ashkenaz namesake.

    Most of us remain skeptical, and I believe a majority of our rabbis remain outspoken:

    There have been zero academic or empirical studies to date on transmission, mortality, and immunity among hareidi. Be it Crown Heights, Boro Park, Bnei Brak, or Stamford Hill in Hackney/London…

    If you did not isolate the “original virus”, how do you know it mutated?
    As for the statistics blah blah, if you did not isolate the virus, how do you prove infection.
    As for deaths blah blah, if you did not isolate the virus, how do you know it killed someone.
    “Well if it was not the virus why are people dying blah blah?” We know that losing your head in a bike accident is “covid related”, heart attack? covid related. Pathological obesity rotting the metabolism, covid related.
    Blah blah, blah blah, blah blah…
    On the other hand, Israelis grew spirulina in Greenland that apparently treats the symptoms. Now we just need to isolate the virus to prove it caused those symptoms.
    In the end, my very first reaction to this nonsense has come true: They are going to exclude you from society if you do not accept their vaccine, and I said it before they even started promising a vaccine. This is the one thing about the Bolshevik; they wrote the script before the French Devolution already, and they changed not one word of it.
    Protocol 10v6.

    A scheme of government should come ready made from one brain, because it will never be clinched firmly if it is allowed to be split into fractional parts in the minds of many. It is allowable, therefore, for us to have cognizance of the scheme of action but not to discuss it lest we disturb its artfulness,

    Thanks for the link. I read the abstract.

    But—I thought one of the primary characteristics of coronaviruses is the speed with which they mutate, and indeed that this characteristic is a primary reason for the need to “guess” every year which strains to aim at to produce a flu vaccine, and for the failure to produce a vaccine against the common cold, and so forth.

    Are you saying that these mutations serve no evolutionary function to the virus? It’s just kind of playing games and won’t end up actually helping some strains succeed in infecting (and surviving ) other hosts?

    Since the virus has very likely been around for a far longer time than our Dear Leaders are letting on, it seems like there is ample time for them to play around and turn into something else, then drift into a “vaccinated” or “unvaccinated” body (bearing in mind that these mRNA shots are not really vaccinations) and find a place to settle in and multiply . . .

    I am afraid that the numbers tell you all you need to know…3000 in 10 months of ‘pandemic’ , 2700 in 2 months of vaccination …

    I think that what the other poster may be alluding to is that – well established in the USA – many deaths have been attributed to ‘Covid’ that in reality, have no actual relation, or in which it was not in any way causative. In the Israeli case, the administrative statistical reporting and response seem inextricably tied to B. Netanyahu and his faction.

    The Netanyahu faction would – theoretically – have a strong incentive, once they are seeking to herd the masses into mass acceptance of an unpopular treatment, to attribute as much of the regular civilian death count to Covid, as possible.

    Notably, Biden of all people, (who, in general = Obama minus the restraint of practicality) held off on interacting with Netanyahu until well after assuming office, because he knew from long practice that as soon as he dialogued with Netanyahu, the later would issue a public announcement declaring his influence, for his own political benefit.

    Every national leader at this point has seen Netanyahu hold a public ceremony for his own publicity benefit celebrating the arrival of J. Pollard, the most repugnant Israeli spy sent against America – for instance – eagerly making a subservient Trump look like the worlds biggest chump.

    Netanyahu needs a publicity win on the mass vaccination for very personal reasons, that go well beyond retaining office, and he has a long record of kicking even useful minions like Trump in the ass the second they lose value, if it could momentarily be used to gin up a publicity benefit.

    So, all said, it bears delving into a little more in depth-

    https://www.economy.com/israel/deaths

    (Public) Stats indicate it would reasonable to assume approx 48-50k Israeli civilian deaths per year, so you are in the general neighborhood of 6%-10% of the monthly, expected Israeli civilian death rate, resulting from Covid, as the primary causative factor for the 10 month time frame.

    The subsequent 2-month time frame stats would seem to indicate that most likely –

    1) Either the total civilian death rate overall grew well beyond the expected median 4k per month (3.5k-4.5k),
    2) Or the Covid share of the normal civilian death rate increased from roughly 6% to over 33% for 2 months,
    3) OR, the attribution / contributing factor of Covid as causative was superimposed on a standard death rate, within the normal range of 3,500 to 4,500k per month.

    So, the missing factor seems to be the death rate for the two elevated Covid-attribution months, which alone can drastically narrow down our options to assess what is really going on.

    To draw an informed conclusion, we would really need to know the criteria being used to determine a primary and/or contributing factor in deaths as being included in the Covid cohort.

    Was anyone who postmortem tested positive for Covid, included in the Covid death rate pool, or was there a more specific criteria? The Covid Motorcyclist (in Florida, I believe) was one such well publicized example in the USA.

    If the vaccine itself is the direct culprit in the seemingly accelerated death rate, then we should not merely see an increase in attributed deaths to Covid during the aberrant months, but should see a overall death rate well beyond the normal monthly deviation (3.5-4.5k) for the preceding year.

    I myself do not have any doubt that the vaccine could be successful in the short term in protecting those who are willing to take it. But I also can’t turn a blind eye to the scary correlation between mass vaccination and exponential rise in Covid-19 cases and deaths that can be detected in every country that engaged in mass vaccination.

    A key possible explanation is that it is causing inappropriate risk compensation, either by those vaccinated who are ignorant of advised wait time before the vaccine has had it’s effect or by the general population who may not be vaccinated or whose vaccine failed to induce immunity going back to normal (Or perhaps having much more social contact than normal due to covid restrictions, visiting relatives, friends or attending things they couldn’t before) due to the vaccinated (Who aren’t wearing any arm band to advertise) doing this, leading to an overestimation of how safe it is. I had a delivery man recently come up and speak to me without a mask. (I don’t live in Israel though) Was he vaccinated and that is why he did that? I don’t know but such encounters will lead people to calculate what they should be doing.

    And then there is the elephant in the room for Israel, the Haredi. They are a large and very fast growing segment of the population of Israel, even more so for the Jewish population. And we know from the US (Where they were key in spreading the infection in the early days) and Israel that their social practices and anti-social refusal to go along with social distancing made them heavy incubators of the virus. In any situation Israel will be worse off controlling the virus because of the Haredi so that should be taken into consideration when comparing Israel’s results with vaccination to the rest of the world.

    Governments are very keen to limit discussion of the age distribution of deaths-with SARS-nCoV2, let alone deaths-from COVID19.

    Looking at data from Occupied Palestine[1] from Dec 30 2020:
     • 75% of male deaths were aged over 70 (and 46% were over 80);
     • 84% of female deaths were aged over 70 (and 65% over 80).

    Less than 1% of deaths were aged under 40, and less than 2% were aged under 50.

    Taking the combined total of 3325 deaths at the time, there were therefore about 60 deaths of people aged under 50 as at the start of 2021, and less than 30 aged under 40.

    These numbers include any cadaver that triggers a positive PCR for SARS-nCoV2, plus any cadaver where the recorder puts U07.1 in the ICD10 field for cause of death (which can be done without a test).

    So the number of deaths-from in the age group that has the highest rate of positive tests… was less than 30 as at Dec 30 2020.

    There is a reason why there is such a full-court press to emphasise CASES – as there was last March.

    Most people are fucking morons, so if HousewifeTV keeps them focused on cases, the median buffoon will remain completely unaware that fuck-all people are dying, except for deathly-ill octagenarians.

    Meanwhile, there will be vast amounts of risk-free money sloshing into the accounts of the vaccine manufacturers.

    [1] Here’s the key question: why can’t the occupation government in Palestine maintain much more up-to-date data? So few people have died, that computing the age distribution of the cadavers is a trivial exercise that could be done in real time.

    Also, why is the age distribution of cases not expressed in cases per capita for the age cohort? Do they not have population pyramid data? Of course they do, but they are all desperate to impose an anti-scientific narrative that this pissweak virus is a mortal threat to healthy people under 40. Which it isn’t.

    And we know from the US (Where they were key in spreading the infection in the early days) and Israel that their social practices and anti-social refusal to go along with social distancing made them heavy incubators of the virus.

    “… anti-social refusal to go along with social distancing …” (???) I would have thought that “social distancing” is the anti-social practice, not refusal to go along with it. Next you’ll be telling us that refusal to be coercively injected with a completely experimental gene therapy with a known history of killing 100% of test animals, and without informed consent, is an antisocial practice.

    “… made them heavy incubators of the virus …” (???) There seem to be a lot of detractors who challenge the existence of any Corona Chan virus – at least to the extent of noting that the “virus” has not actually been isolated, anywhere.

    Hey, it’s what I heard.

    In any case, given the total steaming pile of bollocks that is the false-positive infested PCR test, how exactly has anyone determined that these people were “heavy incubators of the virus”?

    Are you saying that these mutations serve no evolutionary function to the virus?

    Unless you have documented evidence that Covid vaccines prevent transmission by a significant factor, then vaccination of a given host H has no bearing on selection for or against specific strains. If virus V0 is transmitted by host vaccinated for V0 to another host H2, then V0 has in fact reproduced.

    If it in fact has fully inhibited transmission, then those mutations, by definition, are coming from elsewhere, not the vaccinated host. So what precisely is the role of the vaccine in suddently making mutatnt V2 more fit? Nothing by definition. The only thing the vaccine is doing is helping Host H1 defend against V0. That is it.

    The story peddled by Atzmon here, which winks by letting us know IDF psychological warfare is in the loop, would have vaccinated hosts emitting mutants. That is the only reading that makes any rational sense and that means the vaccine is itself the mechanism being used to introduce the mutation and having it be transmitted to others — “hug me I’m vaccinated!”.

    None of this shit makes any sense. The only thing that makes sense is that we’re all gonna be collared and digitally tattoed like cattle. And this is how they are doing it. That, makes a great deal of sense.

    Whenthe first advocacy of ivermectin came here in Australia in April 2020, after lab work in vitro at Monash University, instead of welcoming it, the medical Mafias sprang to life to denigrate the work and the medication. With the full complicity of the fakestream presstitutes, it was dismissed, as in the words of Norman Swan, self-appointed CoViD ‘expert’, as ‘sheep dip’. Ivermectin’s history of massive, safe use, across the world for helminth infestations and anti-viral action against Zika for just one example, was memory-holed, as was the 2012 Nobel Prize in Medicine for its discoverers. Latterly, while it remains forbidden to be used save by a few brave physicians, the press scum have moved on to calling it a ‘treatment for head lice’. These thugs want vaccines, and the mRNA ones preferably, come what may, and that is sinister indeed.

    I think you are over-stating the case.

    If transmission is completely inhibited then all is well and the disease could in principle be eradicated. If any transmission is possible then selection is also very likely to occur.

    GRRR!!! When will such nonsense disappear from the face of the planet and discussion return to rational?

    {Abstract

    Objectives: To describe the first isolation and sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 in Australia and rapid sharing of the isolate.

    Setting: SARS-CoV-2 was isolated from a 58-year-old man from Wuhan, China who arrived in Melbourne on 19 January 2020 and was admitted to the Monash Medical Centre, Melbourne from the emergency department on 24 January 2020 with fever, cough, and progressive dyspnoea.

    Major outcomes: Clinical course and laboratory features of the first reported case of COVID-19 (the illness caused by SARS-CoV-2) in Australia; isolation, whole genome sequencing, imaging, and rapid sharing of virus from the patient.

    Results: A nasopharyngeal swab and sputum collected when the patient presented to hospital were each positive for SARS-CoV-2 (reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction). Inoculation of Vero/hSLAM cells with material from the nasopharyngeal swab led to the isolation of SARS-CoV-2 virus in culture. Electron microscopy of the supernatant confirmed the presence of virus particles with morphology characteristic of viruses of the family Coronaviridae. Whole genome sequencing of the viral isolate and phylogenetic analysis indicated the isolate exhibited greater than 99.99% sequence identity with other publicly available SARS-CoV-2 genomes. Within 24 hours of isolation, the first Australian SARS-CoV-2 isolate was shared with local and overseas reference laboratories and major North American and European culture collections.

    Conclusions: The ability to rapidly identify, propagate, and internationally share our SARS-CoV-2 isolate is an important step in collaborative scientific efforts to deal effectively with this international public health emergency by developing better diagnostic procedures, vaccine candidates, and antiviral agents.}

    I’m sorry to be the one to say it, but this article (and the following quoted comments) sounds like the sort of Divine Wrath that led to the Destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, in the FIRST PLACE – when the Jews themselves, (with the Pagan Roman Empire on its heel) shut itself off from the world ‘that then was.’

    And that intransigence led to an outside nation enacting the Judgment of God; for the failure of the Jews to know ‘the time of their visitation.’ [Lk. 19:44]

    “I strongly believe Moshiach is already in the world and an adult…”
    “Christian tradition is also expecting him to make an appearance, although not necessarily looking forward to it.”

    1) Jesus is the Messiah. Has been for 2000 years. Point is, ‘His people’ [ Matt. 1:21] HAVE ALREADY BEEN BEING SAVED that entire time. Which means, since ‘their guilt remains,’ Jews aren’t that ‘Chosen People’ [Is. 10:3, I Pet. 2:12, Deut. 14:2, Amos 3:2, John 9:41, Tit. 2:145, I Pet. 2:9]
    2) The comment about ‘Christian tradition,’ above, is skewed (as are all things Christian, when apostate Jews look at them). The only person who many Evan-jelly-goos (who also worship the Jews, idolatrously- FYI) are ‘looking forward to,’ erroneously, is the Antichrist- that ‘man of sin, doomed to perdition’ [ II Thess. 2:3] ….. but that ALREADY HAPPENED, in AD.70.
    3) All attempts to legitimize Judaic Talmudism, to rebuild the supposed Temple, will fail. Because Christ has conquered, and the New Jerusalem is already in our midst.

    I also agree that there is something extremely fishy about how governments as good as everywhere are offering a vaccine as our *only* way out. The only explanation I can imagine is some sort of Khazarian-Mafia style coercion.

    There’s been plenty of discussion on prophylactic and early treatment options which reputedly work [try here], but the Western vaccines all depend on EUA = Emergency Use Authorization, which in turn depends on *no* other option being available, hence govts actually forbidding workable treatments.

    As for Austfailia [™©®MulgaM], 1) most representatives [corruptly!] work far more for $s than for the sheople, 2) the Libs have a ‘born to rule’ complex plus the states are mixed Lib/Lab and compete against each other, 3) the PM initially picked the wrong horse [‘flatten the curve’ vs. NZ’s elimination], so they all had to scramble and 4) the ‘visible’ rulers act as ‘warders’ vs. the bogans as prisoners, hence the authoritarian/bogan conflict, whereby the bogans will rebel whenever they can, giving rise to silent-civil-disobedience.

    Wuhan showed that lockdowns/tracing works towards elimination, this is mainly failing in ‘the West’ largely due to silent-civil-disobedience coaxed by SARS CoV-2 denialists. rgds

    About this content

    What is wrong with President John Magufuli? Many people in and outside Tanzania are asking this question.

    Magufuli claimed last year that God had eliminated Covid in the east African country of 60 million people, and has since made dismissing Covid vaccines his central priority – leaving many people asking: why?

    In politics, there are generally two ways of making decisions. The first is evidence-based, weighing the pros and cons and choosing the best option; the greatest good for the greatest number.

    The other is a populist approach, hell-bent against facts, science and logic. In a global pandemic where more than 2 million people have died, that is catastrophic.

    The Tanzanian president seems to be taking populism to a whole new level.

    Maybe he is under the influence of the same rabid anti-lockdown social media messaging that has persuaded some of my family and friends that Bill Gates or 5G have created the virus. But regardless of Magufuli’s cavalier motivation, these stances are a danger to public health. People are being exposed to suffering, and in some cases death…………..

Sorry. But kindly note how close the SARS-CoV-2 and RaTG13 spikes are; although they share 96.2% or so of their genomes, IF SARS-CoV-2 is a lab-constructed chimera THEN I’d say that the spike came from something at least derived from RaTG13 [and of course, during constructing the chimera, *in* went the PRRA]. rgds

    Anyway, this ambiguity “might there be a major mutation” is absurd: that’s what genetic sequencing is for. China started at zero a year ago, and within a week or so knew what they were dealing with. Of course Prof. Ash knows either way, so if he’s not sharing then he was told not to.

    Also the use of “prophecy” for a scientific prognosis suggests that Mr. Atzmon is a bit outside his comfort zone discussing the epidemic (as am I).

    From my distance, it seems that Israeli insistence on extreme exceptionalism isn’t doing itself any favors in the long run. Again.

    Bibi and the Corona Czar and Health Minister Yuri Edelstein have convinced the chief rabbis to persuade the Haredim to get vaccinated. This after 3 prominent older rabbis died (after receiving the vaccine), they say- of COVID. Also, they are bribing the people- in B’nei Barak if you get vaccinated, you’ll receive a gallon of cholent to go. If you live in Tel Aviv, it’s the “Take a Shot” campaign…coupons for 3 free cocktails at local bars for getting the jab. Also, as of yesterday, if you home quarantine or have returned to the country, you wear a GPS bracelet for 14 days that monitors your whereabouts. If you go 15 meters from your home it signals an alarm. Quite frightening. We’ve stopped answering our phone as the clinic calls 4-5 times/day to schedule our appointment. All those refusing the shot are now being reported to the mayor. Don’t know what will happen… radio and tv ads and billboards to encourage getting jabbed. Lots of money invested in this. It’s really quite surreal!!!

    …sounds like the sort of Divine Wrath that led to the Destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, in the FIRST PLACE!

    Could be, could be.

    St. Anne Catherine Emerich said (future tense) that:

    1) Europe will once again be overrun by the “Turks” (no offense intended – I never met a Turk I didn’t like); and

    2) a European army united under a German King (who walks with a limp) will eventually drive them back out of Europe;

    before the “Jewish Messiah” finally rises to power.

    “Eventually” can be a long time – so a lot could happen to the nasty little Nazi State of Israel (no offense intended – it’s what I heard) between now and then.

    …but that ALREADY HAPPENED, in AD.70.

    Something happened in AD 70, we can all probably agree on that.

    BUT (FWIW) there’s a lot more coming down the pipes yet – even the American Hopi Indians knew that (and presumably still do).

    Mark of the Beast, anyone?

  70. My bet is they are not giving the Zionists the same vaccine they are giving the goyim. Agenda 21 is for the undesireables not for “God’s Chosen People”.

    I have a hard time trusting anyone who believes the Talmud is the word of God because I know what Kol Nidre oaths are, their Secret Doctrine, the Serpent Doctrine, and their belief that only they are the apple of God’s eye and no goyim are supposed to be worshipping their God.

    “75.4% of Israel’s new Covid-19 cases are under 39. Only 5.5% were over 60. Only 59.9% of critical patients are over 60 years old. 40% are under 60”

    So, only 5.5 of total and 60% of critical are above >60… That tells us that >60 are still by far most affected by critical disease.

    What % of critical cases are under 39? You don’t tell us, but we can extrapolate <10% despite being 75% of cases.

    So these numbers don't really show such a huge shift, do they?
