After the first two cases of Coronavirus were confirmed in Gaza, the lie has begun circulating on social media that Israel is restricting the supply of medicines to Gaza, thus worsening the situation.
For example the Scottish anti-Israel activist and Labour member Karen Bett has posted this on her Facebook page:
Appallingly the BBC gave legs to the lie. On Radio 4’s Ten O’Clock PM News on 25 March the presenter Razia Iqbal said of Gaza “A decade long blockade has devastated the health service”.
It’s a straight lie. COGAT confirms that there are NO restrictions on medicines and surgical equipment coming into Gaza.
In fact look at this report (May 2018) …………… Hamas has refused to accept shipments of medical supplies for Gaza hospitals after seeing they were sent by Israel!

• On March 18, Israel delivered hundreds of kits for detecting the coronavirus into the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, together with equipment for medical protection. This is the same Gaza Strip from which Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups have been firing thousands of rockets at Israel for the past few years, and launching party-balloons carrying hidden bombs as recently as last week. In February alone, more than 40 rockets were launched into Israel from the Gaza Strip.

With the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) spreading globally and the world longing for medical solutions to the pandemic, all eyes are on labs in Europe, China, the US, and Israel, currently in the process of developing vaccines for Covid-19.
One medical innovation that may not be able to single-handedly end the pandemic but is expected to succeed in slowing the virus’ spread, is protective clothing, most notably masks, manufactured by Israeli medical company Sonovia.
Sonovia specializes in using anti-microbial textiles to prevent patients and employees at hospitals from contracting diseases. Dr. Jason Migdal, a researcher with Sonovia, told TPS that there were “dramatic reductions in hospital infections when our products were used.”
“Cutting-edge nano-coating technology” originally developed at Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan allows the company to use sound waves to place chemicals and materials such as copper into textiles, thus ensuring long-term protection against bacteria.
Dr. Migdal says he and his team are “leading the revolution in this field,” with the materials produced by Sonovia “stronger than antibiotics and even working against bacteria resistant to antibiotics.”
As the number of Covid-19 cases grew, research showed that certain materials, including the copper nano-particles used in Sonovia’s materials, were able to kill off the virus.
With the crisis reaching Israel, the company decided to import all of its raw materials from Germany and have them made into protective masks in a factory in Jerusalem. “We have donated 98% of our masks, and merely kept a few for strategic purposes.
We will deliver more, as soon as we scale up our production,” Dr. Migdal told TPS.
With 120,000 masks already donated to be distributed among medical workers and employees in critical infrastructure, Sonovia is proud of its achievements. “The heart of our business is truly Israeli. We originated here and are now utilizing out technology for the public good,” Migdal stated.
Migdal would not state whether his company could spell the end to the Coronavirus outbreak. And yet, he is optimistic: “We can say very positively, though, we know that we can kill any bacteria, and kill viruses. Specifically the novel Coronavirus.”

Israel’s Minister of Science and Technology, Mr. Ofir Akunis, commented: “Congratulations to MIGAL on this exciting breakthrough. I am confident that there will be further rapid progress, enabling us to provide a needed response to the grave global COVID-19 threat.” Minister Akunis has instructed the Director General of the Ministry of Science and Technology to fast-track all approval processes with the goal of bringing the human vaccine to market as quickly as possible.
MIGAL has achieved a scientific breakthrough that will lead to the rapid creation of a vaccine against Coronavirus. This possibility was identified as a by-product of MIGAL’s development of a vaccine against IBV (Infectious Bronchitis Virus), a disease affecting poultry, whose effectiveness has been proven in pre-clinical trials carried out at the Volcani Institute. MIGAL has now made required genetic adjustments to adapt the vaccine to COVID-19, the human strain of coronavirus, and is working to achieve the safety approvals that will enable in-vivo testing, enable the initiation of production of a vaccine to counter the Coronavirus epidemic currently spreading throughout the world, which so far has claimed 2,666 lives.
From research conducted at MIGAL, it has been found that the poultry coronavirus has high genetic similarity to the human COVID-19, and that it uses the same infection mechanism, a fact that increases the likelihood of achieving an effective human vaccine in a very short period of time.

Before the San Remo conference there did not exist a single Arab independent nation state. Not one. All 22 Arab states that exist today (as part of the Arab League) became nation states either as a direct result of the San Remo conference, or much later. Therefore, the legitimacy of Israel as a Jewish state is exactly equal to or greater than the legitimacy of any of the Arab nation states.
TRUTH BE TOLD
Here is one brave Arabs who defend Israel, tell the truth and confront the lies and the terror of their Arab brethren.
Ex-Terrorist Shocks Israeli Teenagers with the Truth About the Two-State Solution
By Avi Abelow - February 19, 2020 in Israel Unwired
This Arab Muslim lecturer once was a terrorist who tried to kill Israelis and IDF soldiers. He feels he was blessed because he was stopped before he blew himself up as a suicide bomber and instead arrested and jailed in Israel. This saved his life!
Jail time was good for him, since he concluded that he did not want to sacrifice his life for a cause that didn’t care about him, so he stopped being a terrorist and was then tortured by the Palestinian Authority secret services who thought that he was a traitor.
Subsequently, he escaped to Israel and today lives as an Israeli citizen in the Israeli city of Haifa.
He now dedicates his life to trying to stop Arab Muslims from wanting to kill Jews. He also lectures to Jewish audiences trying to convince them that the left which supports the two-state solution is the problem, not the solution.
The video here is from a lecture to High School students where he was explaining that voting for the leftwing parties that support a two-state solution is bad, and hence they must only vote for the right-wing parties that are against the two-state solution. It would be a disaster to establish a country for people with a culture of murder and bloodshed, (who) educate them (their people) for generations that Jews should become food for fish.
Under no circumstances is a Palestinian state (to be) established.
