Can we say the conspiracy theorists were right again?
Their ominous warnings foreshadowed indefinite boosters and citizens barred from society if they opt-out at any time.
That’s the reality Israel faces in the near future.
Although Israel is among the world’s most vaccinated countries, their COVID-19 data is a disaster.
My extreme confidence in effectiveness of vaccines was misplaced.
It was based largely on how well they performed initially in Israel, which is nearly fully vaccinated. The recent data there is horrible with even deaths now picking up.

Nearly 200 COVID deaths reported in past week, but booster data raises hopes https://t.co/c7Ya4rzNP2

India COVID death rate per M: 0.25
Israel COVID death rate per M: 2.9
India vax rate: 9%
Israel vax rate: 80%
–> 11.6X lower deaths w/o vax
So why are we mandating vaccinations in the US?!? pic.twitter.com/G0NBmZFcPt

Israel’s answer to the sharp rise in COVID-19 cases & deaths was a COVID-19 booster jab.
Thus far, over 1 million Israelis received the booster.

While mainstream pundits rave about the boosters, the COVID-19 dilemma has continued to spiral out of control.
According to Worldometer, Israel’s daily COVID-19 deaths reported on 8/22/21 was the highest since February 2021.
The number of vaccinated individuals hospitalized by COVID-19 continues to rise.
Around 50% of Israel’s 600 patients recently hospitalized with SERIOUS illness were FULLY💉
AND its Health Ministry raises new concerns that💉effectiveness against SERIOUS disease may be FALLING
💉NOT setting Israel free
TIME for PLAN B …

Israel reinstated mask mandates and plans another lockdown.
Two months in to Israel’s reinstated mask mandate, cases are up 7970%, higher than last year’s summer peak, and rapidly approaching the all time high from January.
I do not understand how anyone can think masks work. It’s just a complete fantasy based on nothing. pic.twitter.com/R6THlOM7A8

With more and more cases, Israel plans to return to lockdown in September https://t.co/p342cZGbJJ

And the infamous Green Passports are making their return.
However, there comes a twist with this reintroduction of COVID-19 Vaccine Passports.
If you don’t receive the booster, then you lose ‘fully vaccinated’ status.
Without three experimental jabs, you’re banned from large parts of society.
Permanent medical segregation.
Conspiracy theorists proven right again.
Here’s the latest updates:
Are we doomed?
Israel's Prime Minister is crazy (or an idiot):
"People who received two vaccine shots walk around feeling like they are protected… they don't understand that the second vaccine has faded against the "Delta" – they must quickly get vaccinated with the 3rd dose!". https://t.co/wYiZFE28GO pic.twitter.com/nSHkw29XyP

Israel government next outrageous step:
The "Green passport" will be valid only for 6 months from the moment you received the 2nd shot!
Tomorrow the director of the iMoH will decide whether the booster shots will be permitted/coerced for 30+ people(or for the entire population?!) https://t.co/8VnBbGGNu9

“I don’t want to frighten you,” COVID-19 czar Dr. Salman Zarka told the Israeli parliament. “But this is the data. Unfortunately, the numbers don’t lie.”
A massive surge of infections in ultra-vaxxed Israel is pointing to a complicated path ahead. https://t.co/ZVwdlLrxQL

▪️ Green pass validity may be shortened to six months after 2nd shot
▪️ Health Min. launches new campaign to reach the unvaccinated
▪️ Schools to open Sept. 1

Australia and Israel are time machines, showing possible futures for us.
In Israel, your vaccine passport will be revoked unless you continuously get "booster shots". You need a new shot every six months, or you'll be de-personed again. https://t.co/6UYkdYGTXH

Coming to a country near you. Three shots or no vaxxport. How about no vaccine passports at all?
“Israel will then reconfigure its Green Passports, granting them only to the triple-vaccinated, and limiting their validity to six months.” https://t.co/86z9xsfiic

But Israelis aren’t going down without a fight.
Citizens fed up with medical tyranny hit the streets to voice their outrage.
📢📢 Israel rising:
1- Thousands marching for freedom & for the kids in Tel Aviv.
Green pass – a disgrace!
*No* to coercion, discrimination, incitement, corruption.
*Yes* to parental authority, equality, freedom of choice on our body, freedom of movement & speech!

אפשר פה 100 שיתופים?
כי אפשר להיות בעד ואפשר להיות נגד, אבל מגיע לצייצנים פה לדעת על אלפי האנשים שגודשים הערב את תל אביב וקוראים לחופש, וביטול דיקטטורת הקורונה.
תהיו בעד, תהיו נגד – אבל בחייאת שתפו.
מגיע לציבור לדעת מה קורה באמת בישראל. pic.twitter.com/jP6yaj19Ac

Health Ministry Director General Nachman Ash is expected to expand the vaccination campaign for people aged 30 and over in the coming days. The move may take place tomorrow, and the next step is to allow the entire population to receive the third vaccine dose. The validity of the “green character”.
The character is currently valid until the end of December 2021, but once the third vaccine is approved for the entire population, the government intends to shorten the validity to six months since receiving the second dose.
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is interested in applying the decision from now on on the assumption that it will encourage more people to get vaccinated in the third dose, but Health Ministry Director General Ash objected and preferred to wait for the vaccine to be available to the general population.
1,482,503 Israelis have so far been vaccinated in the third dose. Yesterday, 104,379 Israelis were vaccinated in the third dose, compared to about 10,000 who received the first dose and 4,748 who received the second dose.
From The Jerusalem Post:
Israeli health officials said that eligibility for a third vaccine might soon be open to all those over 30 and then to everyone, and the validity of the Green Pass – currently set to expire at the end of the year – might be shortened to six months after the second shot for those who don’t receive a booster.The Health Ministry reported 6,527 new infections on Sunday, with another 5,814 as of 6 p.m. on Monday, bringing the total number of cases to 999,110, with another few hundred expected to be identified before midnight. That means that more than one in 10 Israelis have contracted corona.Among the current active cases are Science and Technology Minister Orit Farkash-Hacohen, Labor MK Gilad Kariv, and Religious Zionist Party MK Itamar Ben-Gvir, who was released from Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Kerem late Sunday night, after spending 24 hours in the hospital.Of those tested on Monday, 6.3% screened positive, marking the highest positivity rate since the beginning of the fourth wave.
