While COVID-19 has, more or less, seemed to disappear, and we are distracted by the war between the Ukraine and Russia and/or Elon Musk’s potential takeover of Twitter, most countries’ leaders, around the world, are planning on signing a treaty with the World Health Organization (WHO)1 in which they will cede their country’s sovereignty to the WHO in the event of a pandemic.2 This means that the WHO will have uncontestable power and authority to declare pandemics as they see fit (they’ve already speculated about which they suspect will be the next ones) and send their personnel to each country to impose whatever disease mitigation restrictions they see fit. This will also put them and the organizations with which they are affiliated, such as the United Nations and World Economic Forum, one step closer to fulfilling their plan to impose a one world government which will include a one world religion.
They are trying to do this without the knowledge and consent of their citizens, much like Israel’s Health Ministry (MOH) signed the “Real-World Epidemiological Evidence Collaboration Agreement” with Pfizer,3 giving over its citizens to Pfizer as trial participants, without their knowledge or consent.4
To date, 194 countries are poised to sign it, including Israel, the United States of America, Great Britain, Canada, and Australia, among others.
The first step is the upcoming vote, May 22-28, 2022, (see image below right) on proposed amendments to something most of us have never heard of – International Health Regulations (IHR) that were implemented in 2005.
“On January 18th 2022, the United States Department of Health and Human Services proposed amendments to the IHR. These amendments give control over the declaration of a public health emergency in any member state to the WHO Director-General – even over the objection of the member state.”
IHR amendments also cede control to WHO “regional directors,” who are given the authority to declare a “Public Health Emergency of Regional Concern.”5
Next will come the International Pandemic Treaty, to be implemented by 2024. While this may seem like a long way away, it is in the works now.6
Public health policy and public benefit are based on the philosophy of Utilitarianism – a godless moral philosophy that has a relativistic perspective – that which benefits the most people, makes the most people happy, is the proper thing to do.7 So, if a certain medical procedure is presumed to help/save a larger number of people than will be harmed by it, those that are harmed are the price that needs to be paid to save the majority of people. This is not in accordance with halacha (Jewish law), but is how public health policy, including vaccines and vaccine mandates, are decided today.8 Furthermore, many of the people in power are atheists who believe that there are too many people in the world and that only they, “the elite”, should be in control of people’s lives, not the people themselves.
Judaism is a communal religion; many, if not most of our major observances and mitzvot (commandments) can only be done together with others. As we have seen over the last two years with the COVID-19 pandemic, which was not, and is not a plague according to the halachic definition of a magefa (plague),9 many of our Jewish observances were curtailed, if not outright halted.10 As such, shuls (synagogues) were closed or limited in the number of people that could attend, batei medrash (institutions of higher religious education) and yeshivot (religious schools) were likewise closed for periods of time. Even if they did not always succeed, this was the plan. Some mikvaot (ritual baths) were only open to people who would submit to whatever mandate was in effect at the time. In certain places (such as near Orlando, Fla.) the fear-mongering was so successful that the balanit (woman who works there) would not allow women visiting the area to use the mikva, despite no government prohibition. Important religious activities and ceremonies, such as attending levayot (burials) which is considered a true kindness since the deceased cannot reciprocate, brit milah (ritual circumcision), bikur cholim (visiting the sick), and attending chatunot (weddings) and being misame’ach chatan v’kallah (gladdening the bride and groom) were all restricted or curtailed. This writer was fortunate to be able to attend, in person, her grandson’s bris, during the first lockup in Israel. There was no minyan (quorum of 10 men required for certain prayers) present.
We must also not forget that preventive medical treatment was denied and even mocked by the health authorities and media, proposing that only vaccines could save anyone. This led to many more illnesses and far more deaths than there should have been. We’ve also all heard about the horrendous treatment of patients in hospitals, who were denied family members staying with them or even being with them at their time of death, which was often a result of hospital malfeasance. None of this is halachically and/or morally acceptable, yet it had been instituted and allowed to continue.
If this treaty is signed, then the WHO would be able to decide upon and enforce any measures they see fit, including closing shuls and mikvaot entirely and indefinitely, forbidding taharot (ritual purification of the deceased) before levayot (limitations as to what was allowed to be done were imposed during this “pandemic”), requiring burial in ways that are not halachically acceptable, or even, Hashem yishmor (G-d forbid), cremation (totally forbidden by and antithetical to Judaism). They can forbid brit milah, weddings, or any other activity that they deem “dangerous”; we would have no recourse and our own government’s hands would be tied. They could also demand vaccination in order to conduct daily life activities including shopping for food. (China has sealed shut the doors to apartment buildings; one viral video shows a couple going down a rope ladder on the outside of their building in order to get out.)
We must also recognize that the measures mandated over the past two years were ineffective and even harmful. Abuse, suicide, poverty, and mental illness all increased and people got fatter and sicker as a result of the lockups, needless closures of businesses, workers not deemed “essential” unable to work, and constant fear-mongering. Many people were denied needed non-COVID medical care during this period or were afraid to seek treatment, leading to even more illness and death. Masks served no beneficial purpose (per Israel Ministry of Health’s own document) and were found to be harmful according to numerous studies.11 The IQs of newborn and young children decreased as a result of the masking and lack of oxygen going to the mother and fetus and young children and the ability of children to learn to read faces and expressions. In response, the CDC reduced the number of words young children are expected to know.
The 24/7 fear-mongering that was put into place made everything so much worse, to the point that many people were, and some still are, families have become divided over vaccine choice, and children, who didn’t get sick anyway, were made to fear killing their parents and grandparents.
This was all allowed to seep into and even become dominant in many of our communities. How could any of this have been halachically acceptable then and how can it be acceptable now (or ever) to allow our governments to potentially turn over our religious lives to any organization, let alone the WHO?
This will be actually be easy for the WHO to accomplish as it changed the definition of pandemic over a decade ago.
“The WHO’s original definition of a pandemic was:9,10
“‘… when a new influenza virus appears against which the human population has no immunity, resulting in several, simultaneous epidemics worldwide with enormous numbers of deaths and illness.’
“The key portion of that definition is “enormous numbers of deaths and illness.” This definition was changed in the month leading up to the 2009 swine flu pandemic. The change was a simple but substantial one: They merely removed the severity and high mortality criteria, leaving the definition of a pandemic as “a worldwide epidemic of a disease”.12
As is apparent, the potential devastation to yiddishkeit (the Jewish way of life) and life itself is unlimited if the WHO is allowed by treaty to control medical decisions and practices in just about every country in the world. And, with no consideration of great illness or mortality, there is no limit to when and how many pandemics they can declare, and for how long they can be claimed to continue, to gain and maintain this control and power.
Listen to former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, now Dean, Robertson School of Government, Regent University, discuss with Steve Bannon about “… the biggest global power grab that we have seen in our lifetimes.”
This treaty will be another step, a huge step, towards their Agenda 2030,13 of one world government and one world religion, among their other evil intentions. Hashem yishmor.
Now is the time to inform your rabbanim of these evil plans so that they realize the need to oppose the upcoming laws. Let your representatives know that this is absolutely unacceptable and that your country must not sign on to this treaty and must leave the WHO, as well. No one should be deluded into thinking, again, that restrictions on our Jewish way of life are at all permissible or that it’s for our personal safety. If we are not spiritually safe, we are not physically safe.
And, above all, daven to Hashem that He intervene on our behalf, lest we lose the next generation.
