MSM and Haters Silent About Tel Aviv University’s Vaccination Drive for Palestinian Students

Over a week ago, I posted about anti-Israel rag +972 reporting about a palestinian Arab student at Tel Aviv University who was reportedly barred from receiving a vaccine at a campus-wide vaccination drive. As I posited at the time, the student did not receive the vaccination due to a bureaucratic mistake. In fact, I saw the article as an own goal.

While +972 and others want to suggest Israel treats palestinian Arabs as less than human, this report – despite the misleading headline – actually does the opposite. At worst, it shows a country trying to do the right thing – which can be tricky given the hostility of our neighbors – as well as bureaucratic problems, to which anyone like me living in Israel can attest.

Since that +972 piece, guess what?


Note how it is not just palestinian Arab students getting vaccinated but also international students, reaffirming that the original omission was bureaucratic, not deliberate discrimination.

But you didn’t read about this new development in +972 mag, or in social media posts of all those who spread their original hit piece. That’s because the truth stands in the way of their agenda, which is to demonize Israel at all costs.
