“I was impressed frankly with the obsession of your prime minister, he called me thirty times, thirty times. He would call me at 3:00 o’clock in the morning and he would ask me what about the variants, what data we have, and I said, “Prime minister it’s three o’clock…”. He said, “No, no! don’t worry, tell me.” Or he would call me to ask about children, “I need to vaccinate the schools,” or to ask about pregnant women. So, he convinced me frankly that he will be on top of it.”
- Pfizer CEO Dr. Albert Bourla, interview on Israeli TV, March 2021
The Israeli People’s Committee has uncovered a multitude of malfunctions and failures at the administrative, ethical and legal levels during the COVID-19 vaccination campaign at the beginning of 2021 in Israel.
In this document, we aim at presenting and elaborating the main features of these malfunctions, which have led to severe damages in many Israelis in the short term, and sadly to possible future damages.
It seems that the entire country got caught up in a medical-social chaos, where the leadership has enabled a situation of fear and uncertainty to run its course out of control, and even contributed to its further enhancement.
But most of all, we cannot ignore severe suspicions shared by all the committee members, that the fundamental sin, which led to the chaos and its casualties, is the way in which two very powerful personages, prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Pfizer CEO Dr. Albert Bourla, agreed upon a massive vaccination campaign in Israel that is unprecedented in scale and nature.
A vaccination campaign that lacks effective safeguards for public safety, that is devoid of any concern for people who may be harmed by the vaccine, and that has allegedly guaranteed to encompass populations, for which the safety of the vaccine has not been tested (pregnant women and their fetuses), and later also children, for whom the need to be vaccinated is totally unclear, while pushing aside any safety considerations. From this exact episode, where both parties came to an agreement regarding the vaccination campaign, which involved a wide variety of ethical and safety violations, an unrestrained drama was initiated that has revealed itself to be impulsive, neglectful and reckless. The agreed upon vaccination campaign concerns matters of life and death, yet is being conducted in an amateurish, irresponsible and aggressive manner, and it led to the political arena taking over the medical arena and bending it to its needs, while paralyzing all alarm systems, monitoring measures and open scientific discussion.
Unfortunately, most of the medical system collaborated with this unsupervised process, starting with the higher ranks, and ending with field doctors – some actively, some by keeping quiet from fear of reprisal.
The Israeli People’s Committee is an independent and apolitical group of Israeli citizens, who vary in their worldviews and areas of expertise. Among us there are physicians, lawyers, scientists and researchers from a wide range of academic disciplines. The glue that binds us together is our deep concern with respect to the safety of the Israeli people and the fate of our country in view of the chaotic vortex, which was orchestrated by the Israeli leadership during the last year in the shadow of the corona crisis, and which the Israeli public finds itself trapped in. In the vacuum that was created due to the disintegration of all the systems of our country, we arrive at the understanding that the cure for all the (health, moral, social, economic) ills, which were brought by the spin of the irresponsible government’s management of the corona crisis, must come from the people. We therefore banded together a few weeks ago and established The Israeli People’s Committee in an attempt to of initiate a process of investigation, exposure, change, correction and recovery, and with the hope to encourage many other Israeli citizens to follow us and join our self-healing journey.
It is only recently that our investigation has been underway, and we are interested here in reporting the public our initial findings and insights. Given the multitude of harms caused to the public during the COVID crisis, we had to prioritize the investigation topics and chose to focus first on the wrongs emerged during the COVID vaccination campaign in Israel that were piled on top of the already painful distress that the Israeli population has suffered due to the policy of repeated lockdowns. This is based on our perception that taking care of these wrongs is top urgency. Our report is addressed not only to the Israeli public, but also to people all over the world. This is because of our impression that the whole world is looking at the Israeli vaccination campaign in envy.
Since things seen from here are not seen from there, we find it important to explain to the people from around the world that there is no reason at all to envy us and also to warn them from similar events and their harmful consequences that may happen in their own countries.
It should be noted that we don’t take or present any stand regarding the COVID vaccine itself (as long as it is being distributed to the adult population). Rather, we raise many questions and concerns regarding the manner in which the vaccination campaign was conducted in Israel. Regarding the recent intent to vaccinate children, we do hold a strong clear opinion that will be presented later in this report.
Based on the information we have gathered from the public and many other sources, we were exposed to a wide range of severe wrongs caused to the public since the COVID vaccination campaign in Israel began. These wrongs are spread across all areas of life and are characterized, among other things, by total disregard for ethical codes and proper governance rules, ruining the foundation of democracy, and delivering a fatal blow to the Israeli social fabric.
After analyzing the preliminary findings, as will be explained below, we believe there is reason for concern that the multitude of wrongs brought upon the Israeli public during the COVID vaccination campaign may be the consequence of a disorder known in psychology as “impulse control disorder.”
In psychology, an impulse control disorder is defined as an unstoppable inner need of a person to perform a certain action even knowing it may harm oneself or others.
Whilst impulses themselves are natural and even essential to human behavior, surely the absence of ability to control impulses makes it dangerous for the individual and his or her surroundings. This is because such uncontrollable impulses become the obsessive objective of a blind decision making process that lacks any reference to its potential negative implications.
We wonder if all the decisions and procedures associated with the Israeli COVID vaccination campaign, including those that encompassed intrinsic disruption of acceptable (locally and globally) course of treatment and research, derive from an uncontrollable impulse to vaccinate the entire population of Israel overwhelmingly – an impulse shared by two entities, the Israeli leadership on one hand and the pharmaceutical industry on the other.
Is it possible that the state leaders of Israel suffer from an uncontrollable impulse to vaccinate the entire Israeli population, which arises from their need to be portrayed as the saviors of the people, in light of the accumulated stress from the ongoing erratic lockdown policy that was embraced as a failed attempt to deal with the COVID crisis?
Is it possible that also the pharmaceutical industry suffers a similar uncontrollable impulse, which stems from its need to accelerate the spread of its scientific development all over the globe, while using the Israeli population as the science lab of the world?
Is it possible that the convergence of the uncontrollable impulses of the two main players, who enabled the Israeli vaccination campaign, is the one that led to the spin of explicit violations of civil rights that we were exposed to during our investigation?
We believe that a positive answer to all these questions is not groundless. Furthermore, we are having trouble finding another satisfactory explanation to the irresponsible manner that the COVID vaccination campaign was performed in Israel, while exposing the Israeli public to many risks and in the process harming its fundamental human rights, as elaborated hereinafter.
Violation of Medical Ethics
IN SHORT: We find that the ethical defense systems, which were built in the medical world over hundreds of years, were dismantled in order to execute one and only impulse – to vaccinate the entire Israeli population as fast as possible.
The innovative Pfizer COVID vaccine was given to the Israeli citizens without receiving their informed consent and without giving them information about the vaccine’s safety, potential risks, possible side effects, expected efficiency, and medical alternatives, whether conventional or otherwise. This is unlike the common practice in many other countries. Even in Italy, which was severely harmed by the COVID-19 virus, citizens who wish to be vaccinated are required to sign an informed consent form. They sign it in front of two medical personnel after reading a document that is 14 pages long and receiving a detailed and clear explanation in simple language, which presents them with what is known about the vaccine and what is still unknown, the benefits, and the short-term and long-term risks, even though this procedure slows down the vaccination pace of the population. The same is true in the U.S. where citizens, who come to get vaccinated, receive four detailed forms loaded with information about the vaccine and its possible risks, and they are given a free choice without pressure or coercion to decide based on the information received whether to vaccinate or not, in accordance with the standard procedure in the medical world ever since. We cannot but wonder why this important procedure was waived in Israel, especially regarding an experimental vaccine that has not yet been approved or licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has only been authorized for emergency use. It is hard to understand the impulse to urgently vaccinate the Israeli population without taking the necessary precautions while distributing a new medical treatment for extensive use in the population.
Review of the contract between Israel and Pfizer enhances our doubts.
As part of the general lack of transparency that has characterized the government’s handling of the COVID crisis, as reflected in the fact that all transcripts and records of government discussions on the COVID crisis are sealed for thirty years, the Israel-Pfizer contract regarding the vaccine presented to the public was also heavily redacted (including the contract’s signature date and also page numbers).
Yet, those parts of the contract, which were revealed to the public, indicate that the vaccination campaign is designed to provide Pfizer with data regarding the vaccine’s efficiency. This is also implied by the words of both Israeli prime minister and Pfizer’s CEO, according to which the state of Israel is the international testing lab for the experimental Pfizer vaccine towards its approval and for the sake of the world.
This extensive medical experiment is being performed through violation of the Nuremberg Code, the Patient’s Rights Law, the ministry of health’s protocol for medical experiments in human subjects (protocol 14), and especially the protocol of informed consent for experiments in human subjects, and without pre-approval of the national Helsinki Committee on Human Rights.
Medical ethics are at the core of the medical profession, maintaining its trustworthiness, its commitment to the civil service, its lack of ulterior motives, and its reliance on universal principals designed to benefit human beings as safely as possible with transparency and out of responsibility to the methodical use of knowledge and research tools. Most doctors adhere to medical ethics, which keeps them from losing their way, acting out of hubris, and involving ulterior motives in their work.
Then, what is the explanation of the willingness of the heads of the health care system in Israel to give up these fundamental ethics and lead the Israeli population to an experimental medical intervention while ignoring the rules that are supposed to protect both the public and doctors?
Were they defeated by a tremendous pressure that instilled them with confusion and recklessness and thus led them to make unethical decisions? Did the prime minister’s uncontrollable impulse to present achievements in the eradication of the pandemic find a partner in the form of a weak health care system, which finds it difficult to steer the ship in rough waters and is in a desperate need of a lifeline, and for that is ready to agree to a hasty vaccination campaign that has dismantled all precautions and medical considerations related to such a procedure?
Whilst writing this report, the Israeli media announced the resignation of professor Eran Dolev, a member of the committee in charge of Israeli vaccination policy, who previously served as IDF chief medical officer and chair of the Ethics Bureau of the Medical Association.
He resigned in protest after the rejection of his view regarding the necessity of informing pregnant women before vaccinating them that pregnant women were not enrolled in Pfizer’s trial.
The deeply troubling aspect of this news item is the fact that professor Dolev’s insistence was not merely academic – it was an attempt to keep medical practice in the framework of ethics and law. We hereby ask professor Dolev to approach the public and add information regarding the decision-making processes and all the facts involved.
We shed light on an intensive communication campaign, which includes manipulative tools that influence human consciousness in an attempt to make people decide to vaccinate without thinking or hesitating, while generating panic and anxiety on one hand, alongside far-reaching promises on the other hand. All this in order to satisfy and execute the impulse to vaccinate the entire Israeli population, at any cost.
The way the Israeli vaccination campaign is being promoted raises our concern that it is contaminated from its outset and every step of the way with misleading the public and even deception with alleged criminal suspicion.
The misleading began with the declaration of government officials and senior officials of the ministry of health that the Pfizer COVID vaccine, being aggressively and coercively marketed to the Israeli citizens, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The institutional system hides from the Israeli public the fact that the FDA authorized this product only for emergency use and it is not approved or licensed,  and that the clinical trial process required to approve (or reject) the product is only expected to end in two years, February 2023.
Time and time again, government officials and senior officials of the ministry of health repeat unequivocally and unhesitatingly the misleading declaration that the Pfizer COVID vaccine was authorized by the FDA, it is written as part of the official information presented by the ministry of health to the public in its website [6,7,8,9] and also proudly written on the government propaganda signs to encourage vaccination against the coronavirus. [10,11].
Furthermore, as part of the aggressive propaganda to encourage the Israeli public to vaccinate against the coronavirus, senior officials of the ministry of health declare firmly that the vaccine is safe and risk free, while knowing it is impossible to evaluate its safety before all clinical trial phases are completed.
Some make these declarations while being in clear conflict of interest due to their financial ties with Pfizer and without proper disclosure to the public of these ties.
And as if it is not enough, the ministry of health rushes pregnant women to vaccinate when declaring the vaccine is safe for them and their fetuses, although pregnant women were not enrolled in the Pfizer trial, and while health organizations all over the world are reluctant to recommend all pregnant women to vaccinate [12,13,14,15]. Considering the extreme uncertainties regarding the nature of the new virus and the new vaccine, which attempts to protect from it and was just recently developed and still was not gathered enough data about and is based on new technology never experimented on human, it is beyond our comprehension how our ministry of health can be so full of confidence about the vaccine’s safety.
In their propaganda to encourage vaccination, the health system officials in charge of the public safety sadly have appeared more than once as salespeople trying their best to pitch their products, while exaggerating their advantages and intentionally hiding their downsides, and using any possible manipulation to influence the potential clients regardless of their true needs. The aggressive propaganda that the Israeli government chose to use to market an experimental vaccine, as if it was goods in the marketplace, raises vast concern in us. We fear that the opaque propaganda saturated with deception was designed to brainwash and form misperception among the public with the single purpose of getting all to vaccinate, since they might have not done so were it not for being subject to all these psychological manipulations.
Not only are the messages of the ministry of health during the vaccination campaign misleading and biased, but they also seem to suffer from inconsistencies and internal contradictions.
Repeatedly, senior health officials are instilling false hopes in the citizens and urging them to hurry up and get vaccinated so that we can all return to a normal life.
But, in practice, they continue to enforce mask wearing and social distancing and do not guarantee that immunization will prevent contagion – this on the pretext that there is not enough information as we are still in the course of study. However, if research is still ongoing and there is insufficient information on the safety and efficacy of the vaccine, then the vaccine cannot be promoted as safe and effective, and certainly citizens of the country cannot be forced to be vaccinated by threatening their fundamental rights and violating basic laws, using intimidation campaigns. Alternatively, if the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine are clear, then we wonder why the social distance policy continues, why all life systems do not return to full activity, and why it is necessary to adopt a policy of separation that means apartheid against the unvaccinated people.
It is unclear to us why there are no clear reassuring messages from the government that those who have been vaccinated are indeed protected.
Is it because the information about it is unknown? And if it is not known, how can one explain the great urgency of vaccinating the entire population in such a hasty and uncontrolled manner? Are the vaccine campaign leaders themselves confused and driven by motives that do not befit their historical role and its implications?
We should add that the campaign to encourage vaccination is based, to a large extent, on what is known in the public as “consciousness engineering”.
This includes the use of manipulative tools purport to brainwash and form misperception among the citizens in order to push them all to vaccinate.
The manipulative tools in use are designed, on the one hand, to cause the people an extreme anxiety and a sensation that they have no choice, if they want to save their life, but to get vaccinated.
On the other hand, they are directed to spread messages of blaming those who choose not to get vaccinated, as if they are traitors or egoists who harm the national effort to get out of the crisis. These manipulative messages, which are delivered by public figures as well as the vast majority of the media, permeated well the Israeli public and caused massive social, family and organizational pressure on people to be vaccinated, even against their will. We continuously receive reports of disputes in families, in workplaces and recreational places that derive directly from this misleading psychological messages.
It was particularly surprising and worrisome to find that doctors in the health care system, from the field level to the top of the pyramid, almost all without exception, also took part in the same misleading propaganda, without themselves being equipped with the medical knowledge necessary to recommend one treatment or another.
There have been many reports of doctors encouraging, and even pressuring citizens to get vaccinated, and it seems they are guided by a systemic instruction that this is how every patient should be treated, regardless of almost any detail in his or her medical history. There is no need to elaborate on how confusing such conduct is, dismantling public trust and crumbling very thinly the power of the medical system to operate among citizens. Here, too, we can recognize how an uncontrollable urge, in conjunction with systems that succumb to it overwhelmingly, can undo basic norms of public medical administration, lead to sweeping deception bordering on criminal behavior and lead an entire medical system to treat its patients compulsively and manipulatively, while significantly weakening the judgment and decision-making authority of doctors.
