Israeli authorities declared on Thursday that Christians living in the Gaza strip would not be permitted to visit holy sites on Christmas.
Gazan Christians, who number roughly 1,000 and are mostly Greek Orthodox, will not be permitted to visit Bethlehem and Jerusalem although some of them will be allowed to leave the tightly-controlled Gaza Strip for outside travel.
An Israeli spokeswoman told Reuters that due to these “security orders,” Gazan Christians are permitted to travel abroad through Israel’s Allenby Bridge border crossing with Jordan, but they are barred from visiting any city in Israel or the West Bank.
Typically, Israel allows Christians in the Gaza strip to visit their holy sites, but they changed their policy this year. In 2018, they allowed Gazan Christians to travel to Nazareth, Jerusalem, Bethlehem and other areas important to worshipers of Christ. They rescinded that policy this year.
Christians are crying foul over the change in policy by the Israelis.
“Every year I pray they will give me a permit so I can celebrate Christmas and see my family,” Randa El-Amash, 50, told Reuters.
“It will be more joyful to celebrate in Bethlehem and in Jerusalem,” she added.
Jerusalem’s Christian leaders are also angered by the decision and have launched an appeal to Israeli leadership to allow Gazan Christians to visit their holy lands during the Christmas season.
“Other people around the world are allowed to travel to Bethlehem. We think Gaza’s Christians should have that right, too,” said Wadie Abu Nassar, who advises Israeli church leaders.
The Christian population in the Gaza strip has been dwindling for decades and may go down as a casualty of the ongoing conflict:
In 2003, Israel began enclosing Bethlehem behind a 23-foot concrete wall. Its purpose was to keep suicide bombers from crossing out of the West Bank and into Israel during the Intifada. But even after the worst unrest settled, the wall kept growing. And Christians living in the town, who have never taken up arms against Israel, are suffering for it.
As Hanan Nasrallah, a Palestinian employee of the Catholic Relief Services, put it: “The separation wall… cuts family from each other. People get humiliated at checkpoints. People do not have many opportunities to improve their living standards. So, therefore, Christians who can afford to, are trying to leave this country.”
It’s not just families that are being split up, either. The wall also runs through the neighbouring village of Beit Jala, which is 80 percent Christian. Upon completion, it will cut off a Salesian monastery from its sister-convent and the rest of the local Christian community. The plight of Beit Jala’s Christians prompted Cardinal Vincent Nichols to write a letter to William Hague in 2012, asking him to appeal to Tel Aviv directly.
And this doesn’t even touch on those Palestinian Christians displaced from their historic homes by encroaching settlements, or those terrorised by “price tag attacks” carried out by radical Israeli nationalists. These are not acts of the Israeli government, though it is the government’s responsibility – both morally and under international law – to respect the rights of Palestinians, whatever their religion.
Israel claims the restriction is occurring due to security concerns, and they point to past instances in which Palestinians have stayed in Israel illegally after their short term permits expire.
W.H.O. Creates Bailout Fund for Vaccine Consortium Distributing Novel COVID-19 Shots in Poor Nations
Globalists are throwing money at the humanitarian crisis they created.
This is the first ever vaccine injury compensation program that has been offered on an international scale, as the WHO attempts to paper over the havoc caused by Big Pharma’s warp speed shots.
“By providing a no-fault lump-sum compensation in full and final settlement of any claims, the COVAX programme aims to significantly reduce the need for recourse to the law courts, a potentially lengthy and costly process,” the WHO said in a press release, contending that the hush money will be doled out to victims in “a fast, fair, robust and transparent process.”
The leaders of the COVAX program, which is a partnership set up by the WHO and the Gavi vaccine alliance, are happy that their inefficient disastrous program will be given a bailout to facilitate even more atrocities throughout the third world.
“It helps those in countries who might have such effects, manufacturers to roll out vaccines to countries faster, and is a key benefit for lower-income governments procuring vaccines through (COVAX),” said Seth Berkley, who works as the chief executive for Gavi.
While individuals in these poor countries are at least receiving compensation after being violated by these shots, residents of first-world nations are not so lucky.
Big League Politics has reported on how Big Pharma is exempted from liability in the U.S. when their COVID-19 vaccines cause damages:
The US government has granted Pfizer and Moderna immunity from liability in case people develop severe side effects from their COVID-19 vaccines.
The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act allows the Department of Health and Human Services to provide liability immunity for “certain medical countermeasures,” such as vaccines, except in cases of “willful misconduct.”
According to CNBC, someone who develops severe side effects from a COVID-19 vaccine can neither sue the FDA for authorizing the vaccine, nor one’s employer for mandating it.
And although it is theoretically possible to receive money from the government to cover lost wages and out-of-pocket medical expenses following “irreparable harm” from a vaccine, only 29 claims—6 percent of all claims—have received compensation over the past decade.
In short, don’t count on compensation for a COVID-19 vaccine gone wrong. And don’t count on seeing any of those “you may be entitled to financial compensation” commercials for it either.
The United Nations is already scapegoating first-world nations that are objecting to this insane and backward vaccine regime. The globalist technocracy is taking shape, and the horrors are outpacing the terrifying vision outlined by George Orwell in 1984.
