Israel gave birth control to Ethiopian Jews without consent

f-ed up.

http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/ne...-16266787.html

Quote:
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 gynaecologists to stop administering the drugs. According a report in Haaretz, suspicions were first raised by an investigative journalist, Gal Gabbay, who interviewed more than 30 women from Ethiopia in an attempt to discover why birth rates in the community had fallen dramatically.

One of the Ethiopian women who was interviewed is quoted as saying: “They [medical staff] told us they are inoculations. We took it every three months. We said we didn’t want to.” It is alleged that some of the women were forced or coerced to take the drug while in transit camps in Ethiopia.

The drug in question is thought to be Depo-Provera, which is injected every three months and is considered to be a highly effective, long-lasting contraceptive.

Nearly 100,000 Ethiopian Jews have moved to Israel under the Law of Return since the 1980s, but their Jewishness has been questioned by some rabbis. 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”.

Haaretz published an extract from a letter sent by the Ministry of Health to units administering the drug. Doctors were told “not to renew prescriptions for Depo Provera for women of Ethiopian origin if for any reason there is concern that they might not understand the ramifications of the treatment”.

Sharona Eliahu Chai, a lawyer for the Association of Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), said: “Findings from investigations into the use of Depo Provera are extremely worrisome, raising concerns of harmful health policies with racist implications in violation of medical ethics. The Ministry of Health’s director-general was right to act quickly and put forth new guidelines.”

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Bibi. What a class act. Hopefully a new coalition will be able to reign him in.

Re: Israel gave birth control to Ethiopian Jews without consent

Yeah IMO that is very f**ked up! But of course only nutters think that there are "conspiracies."

On a tangent, I wonder why more women in the US who use birth-control don't opt for injections.


The Shot (Depo-Provera)

* Cost $30-$75 every 3 months, plus exam Cost


* What it is An injectable method of birth control that contains progestin and is prescription only


* How it works The hormone prevents ovulation, thickens cervical mucus, and alters the uterine lining.


* Who it's for Breastfeeding moms who don't want to get pregnant for 2-3 years; those who can't take estrogen.


* Downside Irregular bleeding may result. Can also cause temporary bone thinning; discuss this with your doctor if you're at risk for osteoporosis.


* Use it without fail, and it's 99.9 percent effective. If you're late for a shot, that number falls to 97 percent.

it was surely deliberate, targeted and planned not to be called a "conspiracy", unless you believe in huge state sponsored coincidences...

It is to me. Hmmm . . .let me be clear - I'm not surprised that many people in the Israeli government have a strong preference for European-Jews but I am surprised that they'd go as far as to carry out direct actions to get rid of Ethiopian-Jews.

Huh? My point is that no matter how many times things like this come to light, until a government admits to it, those who claim that a government does such things are labelled nutters. IMO It's as stupid to think there are no government "conspiracies" as it is to think that everything strange is a government conspiracy.

Not surprising. No doubt America will keep funding this fucked up government so they can continue oppressing and murdering people in Palestine.

Re: Israel gave birth control to Ethiopian Jews without consent

DNA tests by Israel's own scientists showed that the Ethiopian Jews are by far more directly descended from the ancient Israelites than the dominant Ashkenazi Jews (of European ancestry). And the oft discriminated against there Sephardic Jews (the Israelis whose roots are in North Africa and the Middle East) are "more Israelite" than the Ashkenazim too.

Keep in mind that the only thing the Holocaust necessitated was a Jewish homeland somewhere, it being where Biblical Israel was is specifically related to the claimed connection to that land by the Ashkenazim (though of course there was no DNA testing when Herzl started the Zionist Movement in 1897, and the modern State of Israel was established 50 years later).

In his book The Thirteenth Tribe (1976) Arthur Koestler @ long last put the lie to the Ashkenazi claim to have any ethnic connection to Biblical Israel (and Jusea & Samaria). So yeah, they honored the "right of return" for the Ethiopian Jews, but the Ashkenazim really wish they wouldn't have used it. A lot off you would be shocked @ the blatant racism openly expressed against these Jews in "Eretz Yisrael".

BTW, Barack Obama (who's the son of an African father, no less) has basically continued the American subservience to this parasitic "ally".

For that matter, so are many Palestinians, a large percentage of whom are descended from Jews who converted to Islam in the 6th and 7th Centuries.
