Headlines from Jerusalem: Quarantines and the Green Passport plague Israelis – Ep. 6
TEL AVIV—As many as 7,000 Israelis – possibly up to 10,000 according to the organizers – joined a protest against the Green Passport and the continuous cycle of quarantines, which have worsened for the non-vaccinated. As I publish this podcast, Israel topped 38,000 infections in one day. Some 80,000 students and school staff around the country are in quarantine, most of them from coming into contact with someone who tested positive though they are not infected themselves – including my three kids. Feel free to send homeschooling tips to: email@example.com :)
In this podcast, I covered the protest and spoke to a few of the speakers including Dean Braun – the mall protester who went viral here – and Dr. Amir Shahar, who excoriated a fellow Israeli doctor who said the unvaccinated should not be treated.
