Had COVID 3 months Can Enter Israel
By Micah Halpern

Monday September 20, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

In a major step forward, a step that recognizes natural immunity for those who have suffered from COVID, Israel has decided that those who have had COVID within the past 90 days do not need a PCR test to enter Israel. Effective immediately and for the next three months.

The decision was made unanimously by the Exceptions Committee of the Foreign Ministry and the Population and Immigration Authority.

Of course, travelers must provide proof that they had and have recovered from the virus.

Three months is a start. It signifies that Israel is following the science which indicates that people who have had COVID are safe for at least 90 days.

Israeli Baseball Wins
By Micah Halpern

Sunday September 19, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Israel is not known for their baseball prowess – until now, when the Israeli national baseball team took a silver medal in the European Baseball Championships.

The team lost to the Netherlands in the finals with a score of 9 to 4, taking second place. Earlier in the games, during the semi-finals, Israel defeated Italy 11 to 5.

This is Israel’s second time in the games. And it is their first time taking a medal.
Four years ago they came close and took fourth place after losing to Spain which took home the bronze.

The Netherlands has won 24 times. That is impressive. But, for such a young team and young program, Israel’s silver is also quite impressive.

Good going Israel.

ISIS Terror in Syria
By Micah Halpern

Saturday September 18, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

There was a terror attack in Syria. The attack struck a gas line that powered an electricity station.

On the state news agency SANA, Syria's electricity minister acknowledged that an attack on one of the gas lines at Deir Ali station led to an electricity outage that affected the capital city Damascus, its outskirts and other areas, and that repair work is ongoing.

The Minister told state TV that electricity was expected to return to Damascus within an hour of his announcement and then, successively, to other affected areas.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack according to a statement published on its affiliated channels.

Bennett Responds to FDA
By Micah Halpern

Friday September 17, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Israel’s Prime Minister commented on the FDA’s decision to support the third vaccine for high-risk people and people over 65.

Naftali Bennett predicted that the United States will gradually begin to offer the vaccine more widely after being presented with scientific data from Israel.

On Twitter, Bennett asserted that: "The FDA decided to follow in Israel's path … I estimate that the FDA will gradually approve the extension of the vaccine to more age groups, as has happened in Israel, as the effectiveness of the second vaccine continues to decline even among younger age groups.”

The FDA decision will make people uneasy about the vaccine. If it is good for those over 65, it should be good for those 64 and under.

EU & Israel Accept COVID Cards
By Micah Halpern

Thursday September 16, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Countries around the world are beginning to create agreements allowing for travel – as long as the travelers have COVID certificates.

Israel and European Union have agreed on mutual recognition of their certificates for coronavirus vaccinations. The move enables Israelis in Europe to apply for and receive local green passes which will give them the ability to enter restaurants, cultural events and public buildings. European citizens will enjoy reciprocal status in Israel.

The problem with the agreement is that it allows each EU country to decide on its own, whether or not it wants Israelis - it does not prevent individual countries within the EU from restricting entry to Israelis.

Despite that caveat, this is an important step toward normalization even as the world is witnessing spikes in the Delta variant.
