(PatriotWise.com)- Last weekend, Israel’s Health Minister made the same mistake Barack Obama did when he was caught on a hot mic telling Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that after the 2012 Presidential election he would have “more flexibility” to negotiate a nuclear deal with Russia.
Before the start of Israel’s weekly Cabinet meeting on Sunday, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz, was caught on a hot mic admitting the truth about Israel’s vaccine passport policy.
Unaware that his conversation with fellow Cabinet members was being broadcast live on Channel 12, Horowitz said the quiet part out loud and admitted that Israel’s “green pass” vaccine passport policy is about pressuring the vaccine hesitant to get the COVID shots.

According to Jewish News Syndicate, while speaking with Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked, Horowitz said that the “green pass” isn’t being issued for medical reasons. Instead the purpose of the “green pass” rules are “to pressure members of the public to get vaccinated.”
Horowitz also admits that there is no basis in epidemiology for mandating vaccine passports. But Israel’s problem, Horowitz tells Shaked, is the people who won’t get vaccinated. So passports are the way to solve that problem by influencing them to do so. Otherwise Israel “will never get out of this” pandemic.
Currently Israel’s “green pass” policy exempts certain public venues which has naturally prompted some Israelis to question the motives behind it. To avoid these inconvenient questions, Horowitz suggested that the “green pass” be required uniformly across the board.
Horowitz, admitted that there is no “medical justification” for requiring the use of vaccine passports, but added that it is the only way to get the unvaccinated to agree to getting vaccinated.
Horowitz and Shaked were then joined by Intelligence Minister Elazar Stern who expressed open disgust with the unvaccinated, telling Horowitz that it was annoying how the unvaccinated were taking up ICU beds.
And the whole conversation was broadcast live.
When the Cabinet meeting got underway, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett told his Cabinet that tolerance for those who will not get vaccinated has ended.
