1/
Hello, my name is Gal,
I am an Israeli citizen, and I want to convey this urgent message to the world: Contrary to what you are told, Israel has not "returned to normal" in any way >>

2/ Moreover, despite the desire to create a setting as if there was a full and normal routine here - the Israeli Ministry of Health JUST RECOMMENDED TODAY TO EXTENT THE DECLARATION OF A “STATE OF EMERGENCY” in Israel >>
3/ to which is the foundation for coercion, violation of basic rights, severe discrimination under a "green mark (pass)", prolonged closure (Of about 5 months overall) and a lot of undemocratic and not “routine" restrictions. >
4/ If the situation in Israel had "returned to routine thanks to the astounding success of vaccines" then the "state of emergency" would not have continued.
5/ In fact, since the beginning of the "vaccination project" there has been only more intimidation and in many ways - even though the closure has been lifted, much more coercion.
6/We live under increasing coercion, discrimination, marking and division into two civil societies-according to the "green mark (pass)".
Basic activities such as work, education, health and recreation - have become a luxury for only vaccinated people. And even then - temporary
7/ Only some places allow the presentation of a negative test to COVID- every 72 hours (!)-the approval output sometimes puts out an output of all the medical tests you have done, recently it was announced that citizens who chosen to do so will have to pay for the tests.
8/ 🚨Yesterday, at the same time as the false publication that "all restrictions have been removed from the education systems" - the Minister of Education announced that parents would be allowed to enter their children's school or kindergarten area, only by presenting a "GP” >>
A green pass will be required as well for attending graduation parties or trips and more.
9/ We believe (myself as a lawyer and many Mor like me) - that this announcement probably has no legal basis, and it is not under authority - but the State of Israel is no longer a law-abiding democracy.
10/ The directive has already been implemented and the legal system does not provide an effective solution to stop this conduct. There is no functioning Government, or Knesset and there are no parliamentary committees to stop it. We were abducted to the dictatorship >>
11/ My message is simple: either the vaccine is effective - and then all the limitations have to disappear from our lives. Or it is ineffective - and there is no justification for the limitations that depend on it (green mark) anyway. There is no both ways.
12/ Since we are now in a country that operates unprecedented coercive measures - you will not hear this message in the official media.
Please help us pass it on to the citizens
13/ Lastly, I believe that Israel is the "pilot" that should serve as an example and *justification* for the whole world. If they convince the general public that there is "success" here, it will be done all over the world and then it will get worse for all of us.

My piece in the NY Times today: "the Trump administration is denying applications submitted to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services at a rate 37 percent higher than the Obama administration did in 2016."

Based on this analysis: "Denials for immigration benefits—travel documents, work permits, green cards, worker petitions, etc.—increased 37 percent since FY 2016. On an absolute basis, FY 2018 will see more than about 155,000 more denials than FY 2016."

"This increase in denials cannot be credited to an overall rise in applications. In fact, the total number of applications so far this year is 2 percent lower than in 2016. It could be that the higher denial rate is also discouraging some people from applying at all.."

Thanks to @gsiskind for his insightful comments. The increase in denials, he said, is “significant enough to make one think that Congress must have passed legislation changing the requirements. But we know they have not.”

My conclusion:
