August 19, 2014 | WEBBIZ …and because of that, don’t be surprised by headlines like this:Israel’s health ministry is investigating claims that Ethiopian immigrants have unwittingly had Depo-Provera jabs for yearsThis is how secular western European states deal with culling the herd. Don’t kid yourself that this secular state is any different.I particularly enjoy that the Minister of Health is investigating himself to find out if he was lying when he denied this was happening. That too is entirely modern, secular and altogether without connection to the state of Israel as some kind of divinely instituted country.And before anybody starts, saying Israel is a secular country and not divinely instituted is no more a “denial of Israel’s right to exist” than the same observation about the US, France or Australia is. Yes, people (in fact, National Review writers) have seriously attempted to make that accusation against me in the past when I criticized some blasphemous soft porn ad for Israeli tourism. For some people, absolutely everything Israel does is utterly sacrosanct.
