Israel has admitted for the first time that it has been giving Ethiopian Jewish immigrants birth-control injections, often without their knowledge or consent.
The government had previously denied the practice but the Israeli Health Ministry’s director-general has now ordered gynecologists to stop administering the drugs.
Even more sickening:
Last year, the Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who also holds the health portfolio, warned that illegal immigrants from Africa “threaten our existence as a Jewish and democratic state”.
Just another oppressor in the world…
But the Jewishness that Netanyahu seeks to protect through underhanded injections is not a Jewishness worthy of protection; it is unethical, inhospitable, and shameful—not to mention possibly criminal—to take in refugees and subject them to medical treatments without their knowledge or consent.
Yet to resort to eugenics, a weapon so often used against the Jews (themselves labeled “undesirable” throughout the world) does not protect Jewishness. Rather, it diminishes it and makes Netanyahu another oppressor.
I’d like to see conservative Evangelical Christian Zionists wiggle their way out of this one. And sorry, admitting to your ignorance is not an excuse.
