Interim report in english of the Civil Investigation Committee (CIC) in Israel
"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)
ABSTRACT: 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 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.
Also yesterday, April 1st 2021, the CIC filed a petition to the Supreme Court in Israel demanding a criminal investigation by the General Attorney against the Health Ministry and namely two Professors, Galia Rahav and Roni Gamzu. The ground for this petition is the criminal fallaciousness of the public claiming that the product considered vaccine, is FDA approved. On the same day, the Supreme Court accepted the petition requesting the General Attorney and the Health Ministry to reply within one week.
