Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on March 9 that everyone arriving in Israel must undergo a 14 day self-quarantine.

“All those coming to Israel from abroad will be placed in isolation,” he said in a video address.

Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri said the measure would be immediately going into effect for all Israelis returning to the country.

In other words, foreign arrivals will have to demonstrate that they have adequate arrangements to be quarantined throughout their stay in country.

“After a day of complex discussions, we made a decision: everyone who comes to Israel from abroad will enter the 14-day isolation,” Netanyahu declared in a statement.

“This is a tough decision, but it is essential to maintain public health – and public health precedes everything.”

According Israeli media reports, this means that approximately 268,000 Israelis who are currently traveling abroad would need to self-quarantine upon return.

So far, Israel has recorded 42 cases of Covid-19, but no deaths.

The country has already imposed restrictions on travelers coming from several countries including Italy, one of the other countries most impacted by the coronavirus outside of China.

Unlike most countries, Israel functions like a proper nation-state.

Conservative commentator Paul Joseph Watson noted this on Twitter.

He posted “Israel announces anyone arriving from overseas has to go into quarantine for 14 days. Meanwhile in the EU, it’s open borders as usual.”

Europe’s open borders obsession could lead to its eventual undoing.

The coronavirus is just one of many ways that open borders can be exposed, and as a result, the citizenry of open border jurisdictions will be susceptible to illnesses and other socially disruptive events.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
