Israel honors Pfizer chief at Independence Day celebrations
Sharon’s View: Independence from whom? What country occupied the Jews from which they could claim independence? They just make stuff up wanting to look like the persecuted ones, when the opposite is true. Jews occupy every country in the world, but in Palestine they took over the Palestinian people and their land.
In other countries they determine their laws, write their history books and hold threats over the heads of powerful people and make good on those threats when those powerful people don’t slant their way. Where is the independence when they were the aggressors in the first place?
They ruin lives all over the planet making a big display of it while shrinking everybody else into submission as a result. They’re the walking, talking, terrorists who dance their way around the globe raising havoc wherever they wander, claiming as theirs and assigning taxes to whatever they covet.
What does freedom mean to them anyway? They can wipe their feet on the lives and souls of anyone not Jew? They are the real white supremacists of the world. Yet no one dares speak it for fear their life will be ruined. Now that’s oppression. It only becomes supremacy when it works.
What does anybody’s independence day have to do with CORONACOVID virus?
Leave it to the Jews to exploit the misfortune of others while they celebrate their own good fortune. Where’s the independence of the Palestinian people whom they still enslave on their own Palestinian land?
Yeah and wear your masks in public. You act like you’re immune to the virus. Like you were immune to the Spanish flu. Maybe you should explain that.

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel paid tribute to the chief executive of international drug maker Pfizer Inc. during its Independence Day celebrations Wednesday, thanking him for a partnership that has helped the country carry out one of the world’s most successful coronavirus vaccination campaigns.
At Israel’s main Independence Day ceremony in Jerusalem, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla delivered a recorded video message broadcast on national TV: “Together we are demonstrating that through mass vaccination we can defeat the COVID-19 pandemic and save lives.” Bourla, a son of Jewish Holocaust survivors from Greece, had reportedly been invited to attend in person as a representative of Diaspora Jewry but was unable to come.
Israel has vaccinated over three-quarters of its adult population in just over three months. Infection rates have plummeted, allowing the country to reopen its economy in recent weeks. Although Israel has come under some criticism for not sharing more of its vaccine supplies with the Palestinians, its vaccination campaign is widely seen as a success.
“We have shown that there is a path back to normal, and that definitely is something the entire world can celebrate,” Bourla said.
The video was shown during celebrations at Mt. Herzl, a compound that includes Israel’s national cemetery. The ceremony included musical performances and the lighting of symbolic torches by people recognized for their contributions to society.
The evening celebrations began the transition from Israeli Memorial Day, a solemn day honoring fallen soldiers and victims of militant attacks, to the joy surrounding Israel’s 73rd anniversary of independence. The celebrations continue Thursday, when millions of Israelis are expected to flock to beaches and parks for picnics and barbecues and while the air force performs flyovers across the country.
