Attorney Alfred Schwartz, an expert in public international law and state responsibility and human rights: “The regulations also concern the requirement for efforts to bring about a ceasefire in a place where war is being waged.”

Dr. Daniel Sofer, senior cardiologist and catheterist in the USA: “This organization is an agency subordinate to the anti-Semitic UN organization, which in these agreements will oblige the countries to an administrative abduction at the expense of the sovereignty of all its member countries and will turn from an advisory organization into a legislative organization.” Heidi Moses, lobbyist A society that took it upon itself to lead the struggle: “The government continues to neglect its citizens.”

49 Republican senators sent a public letter to President John Biden in which they express their strong opposition to the changes in the regulations of the World Health Organization that will be voted on at the organization’s conference at the end of May 24.

Following the senators’ letter, Prof. Yaron Zelicha tweeted on his Twitter: “Even in the US there are more sane than us. ready? 49 Senators (!!) Maybe it’s time for the MKs in Israel, especially from the right, to give some thought to the loss of our sovereignty instead of automatically aligning with the Ministry of Health officials?”

In addition, according to her, the organization also wants to establish an authority in every country. “The government is abandoning its citizens again, and endangering the sovereignty of the state and the rights of its citizens,” Moses warns. “If the regulations are approved, it will be a disaster. The World Health Organization will actually be able to manage our country in emergency situations, including making fateful decisions such as a decision on a ceasefire.”
