Israeli High Court Strikes Down COVID Restrictions on entry and exit to Israel - Says "Enough" to human rights violations

In a landmark judgement yesterday the Israeli Supreme Court (Bagatz) struck down restrictions on entering and leaving the country.

While the decision was limited to this issue, the judgement, by a 3 Judge panel, harshly criticised all the government's human rights violations over COVID-19.

The Chief Judge Esther Hayut called the government's actions over the past year "unimaginable" and "unprecedented" "infringement of fundamental rights".

The second Judgement by Justice Yitzchok Amit listed the "Ten Plagues of Rights Infringement", echoing the Biblical 10 Plagues that God sent against the Egyptians.

This was a list of 10 fundamental rights infringed by government COVID measures.
They included:

  • freedom of movement
  • freedom of speech
  • freedom of religious practice
  • the right to work
  • the right to conduct a business and purchase things
  • the right to personal autonomy
  • the right to privacy

The Jewish Passover Festival where Jews commemorate the Exodus from Egypt is next week. It features a special festive meal (Passover Seder) and a book (Haggadah) of history, songs and prayers to pass down the story from generation to generation.

After listing each of these plagues he said "Enough!" (Dayenu!) This is the traditional Jewish Passover exhortation against tyranny.

He then adds an 11th plague and lists the core rights in The Basic Law for EVERY person to be able to leave the country and EVERY citizen to be able to enter and says this is a core part of the fundamental contract between government at citizen which the government broke.

Justice Amit is expected to become the next Chief Justice of the Court, so his words are very significant.

This Judgement is also the third strike down of Coronatyranny laws by the Israeli High Court in recent weeks.
Last week they struck down electronic phone tracking.

Finally the Courts are starting the fight back against these unjustified and tyrannical restrictions.

Hopefully the political fightback will begin with the election of Rappeh party (@rappeh) candidates to the Israeli Parliament in next week's elections.

This is amazing news yet we mustn't get too complacent that the judges will save the day. We must all keep these people who populate the government bureaucracies accountable with their feet to the fire. We've suffered far too much to ease up now. Thanks for posting this. It gives us at least some hope for a normal future.

Yes, this is just the start of the fight-back against the forces of tyranny.
It is the Battle of Milne Bay - the first major battle in which the advancing forces of tyranny were soundly defeated.

go lick the ass of laura loomer.

It is indeed time to say "Enough" - It is no longer justifiable to continue infringing fundamental rights in the name of public health. There is an expression in Hebrew which translates "The operation was successful but the patient died" - There is a risk that in the attempt to eradicate corona (which is unlikely to be successful for any length of time) we will completely eradicate our basic freedoms (which is likely to be successful and irreversible).

nothing for the kids of pedogate? ahh yes they were goyim...

That's good. They should also go after the Prime Minister for that silly commercial he was in endorsing Covid Vaccines.

Wow! Such good news! There are some brave people willing to stand up to injustice! So very grateful to these brave people.

Wow, finally some good news. I had given up on judges and other authority figures.
The protests in the Netherlands that are being met with unnecessary and outrageous violence from the police, and the ongoing witch hunt for the protesters in Ireland, constant name calling and making them look bad, had me lose hope... This brought it back a little. Thank you for this. :)

Don't give up hope. We are starting to win battles and we are marshalling huge forces against this tyranny. You are not alone.

I know. There are many on the same side of things. I think the media and some social media platforms like FB and Twitter made it look like there is only a minority like us, and that everyone else is blind, deaf and stupid. I know now that this is not the case. But of course, if people lose hope because they believe no one is on their side, they've won. And that's what they're working hard on to reach. You're right, we're starting to gain on them. That's why they're getting crazier by the minute. Thanks!

Hello @apshamilton
From what I read, I can confirm that the pandemic served many governments to abuse citizens in many ways. Unfortunately.
The same thing happened in so many other parts, it is unfortunate.
