Israel gives Covid-19 vaccines to distant friends even as Palestinians wait

Israel is sending its spare doses of Covid-19 vaccines to its far-off friends, especially those who recognize Jerusalem as its capital, like the Czech Republic and Honduras. This comes at a time when an overwhelming majority of Palestinians living under its occupation are yet to get a single dose of the vaccine. Recently, Israel allowed a batch of 2,000 doses in Gaza, which was gifted by Russia.

A state is sharing surplus resources to other states it has strong diplomatic ties with first. I'm so shocked and horrified that they aren't first giving it to a state hostile to them. No other nation would ever act in such a manner.

Oh no! The place that sends them suicide bombings, stabbings, rockets and starts fires isn’t the first in line? How can can that be?

From what I understand, Israel is vaccinating only those within Israel proper. The Israeli government doesn't like the Palestinians very much. They're not getting any help from the Israeli government. I don't know about the others.

A typical Israel move. Force and displace people, annexe their lands and rights, remove any constitutional rights treat them like dirt then have the audacity to play victim when they get retaliation and on top send vaccines to another state that is miles away while next door awaits. Zionism will die with the apartheid government of Israel.

Of course I'd help my friends before terrorist. The deserve my scraps at best. Maybe be nice to Isreal because they can help you more in the long run. Do as they say and your life might not be so bad.

Keeping a large population of nearby people deliberately unvaccinated is very poor strategy. It will keep spawning more infected who will spread it to Israelis. The virus will also mutate within the unvaccinated over time, reducing the efficacy of the vaccines that have been administered. Israel would be much safer if they vaccinated palestinians. The entire world would benefit from making these vaccines as readily available to as many people in the world as possible as quickly as possible. Scrambling over patents and profits will prolong the pandemic and increase the overall cost of fighting it.

I mean can we really be shocked that they’re violating the Geneva Convention at this point? As awful as this is, when looking at Israel’s history it’s not surprising at all

That seems dumb. I would rather have my neighbors vaccinated than people thousands of kilometers away. Let their neighbours take care of them.
