Weekly Commentary: Palestinian Leadership Sacrifices Health For PR - Will
Their Fellow Traveler React?
Dr. Aaron Lerner 19 June 2021
One of the very first things the new Bennett Administration implemented was
a deal to immediately supply the Palestinian Authority (PA) with over a
million Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines.
A small portion of the doses had an end June expiration date while the rest
are good through the end of July thus providing a window to administer the
double dose to over a half a million Palestinians.
It was a win-win arrangement with Israel trading these doses for supplies
Pfizer is slated to supply the PA after the summer.
But when the first shipment was delivered the Palestinian Authority decided
to cancel the deal.
Propaganda against the Jewish State is more important to the leadership of
the PA than the lives of their people.
This does not surprise me. It is consistent with the behavior of the PA.
The question is how their fellow travelers react to this development.
Someone from Physicians for Human Rights-Israel took to the airwaves to slam
Israel while admitting that he was clueless about the details of the
expiration dates of the doses.
Will B'Tselem join the chorus?
How about J Street?
Are these groups really on the side of the Palestinians?
They are on the side of the Palestinian rulers, not the Palestinians.
Because if they were truly on the side of the Palestinians they would be
slamming the Palestinian rulers for sacrificing the health of Palestinians
for the sake of their ongoing propaganda campaign against the Jewish State.
