Cyber experts slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his proposal to "microchip" children who return to schools and kindergartens as the coronavirus lockdown is lifted.
While speaking at a press conference May 4th, Netanyahu suggested the Health
Ministry use new technology to help Israel adjust to its new routine as the state is
lifting the coronavirus lockdown. "That is, technology that has not been used before and is allowed under the legislation we shall enact," he clarified.
The prime minister said "I spoke with our heads of technology in order to find measures Israel is good at, such as sensors. For instance, every person, every kid – I want it on kids first – would have a sensor that would sound an alarm when you get too close, like the ones on cars."
"It will be hard to do it to more than a million schoolchildren who return to their school in order to ensure one student sits at the distance of two meters from another. It is fictional and dangerous," cyber expert Einat Meron told Ynet. "I get the idea behind it," she said. "But although such distance-sensitive microchips exist in vehicles, it is different in humans. A beeping sound telling me I got close to someone is not enough. Who says it will change anything? I would have gotten closer either way."
Microchipping children & notifying citizens on their distance will not affect their actions and many fear the state would make use of the information available from the sensors.
"If the information with the kids' location is uploaded to the internet, a pedophile with some cyber knowledge may invade the system and stalk them outside their schools, follow them," Meron said. "Can the state take responsibility for that?"
The Prime Minister's Office responded "it is not to be implemented through databases, but through simple technology notifying [the citizens] about their distance. It is a voluntary option that is designed to help children keep their distance, like Mobileye with vehicles."
The office added that the prime minister's suggestion is "an idea that may help maintain social distancing, and there will not be any violation of privacy."
On Wednesday May 6, it was reported the movements of all vehicles in Israel were tracked by police and stored in an unregulated database named Eagle Eye. An unnamed source said the information "may be kept for years on end."
The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) reportedly submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act that police disclose the extent of the operations of Eagle Eye
Israel Police responded to ACRI, saying the system's activity was not standardized internally despite several years of operations. "once finalized, the procedure will not be disclosed to the public," police added.
The Man Just Appointed to Head Israel’s Police
Wants to Make the Temple Mount Jewish Again
May 17, 2020 , 5:08 pm
A newly appointed Public Security Minister, Amir Ohana, may be the key to seeing an Israeli flag finally flying over Judaism’s holiest site: the Temple Mount. Prime Minister Netanyahu appointed Amir Ohana, the current Minister of Justice, to serve as the Public Security Minister in the newly formed government. The appointment will put Ohana in charge of law enforcement, which includes the police, prison service and Fire and Rescue Authority.
Ohana’s is a supporter of loosening the policy on carrying firearms in Israel in order to allow more armed people on streets for prevention and fast reaction to terror attacks. “There is an awesome power, a mythological power to symbols. The Land of Israel is a symbol. It was able to bring my grandmother from Morocco, Jews from Yemen to here and not to any place else. Because the land of Israel is a symbol for the Jewish nation. And the crown is the temple mount.”
“Whoever gives up their symbols, and this is something our enemies understand quite well, will also give up control, sovereignty, and his presence in the land. Therefore it is of the greatest importance, even for me as a person who is not religious, to come and to show our presence, that a Jewish person must always be on this mountain, whether it is for national or religious reasons. We cannot permit ourselves to give up our symbols, and of course the Temple Mount is the crown.”
"On the day that Jews can come to the Temple Mount and pray, even bring an Israeli flag, to bring a Book of Psalms, our sovereignty will be closer to 100 percent. We are hoping for that day and working hard to make it so.”
It is currently forbidden for non-Muslims to have or display religious items on the Temple Mount and it is also forbidden to display an Israeli flag in any form. People who have done so, even inadvertently, have been attacked by the Arabs at the site and detained by Israeli police.
Deputy Foreign Minister expressed this dream. She said “My dream is to see the Israeli flag flying over the Temple Mount,”
In 2009, 5,658 Jews ascended to the Temple Mount had doubled by 2015.
2017, a total of 25,000 Jews visited the site.

H.R.6666 - COVID-19 Testing, Reaching,
And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act
H. R. 6666
A House resolution from Illinois Democrat Rep. Bobby Rush that would put Big Government in charge of tracking citizens’ movements as they relate to COVID- 19 mitigation efforts — even sending health officials to “individuals’ homes,” “as necessary,” — has a most apt number: 6666.
Mark of the beast. Mark of the beast for a beastly, monstrously unconstitutional bill. After all, what’s more devilishly & un-American than launching one of the most massive government surveillance programs of private citizens in U.S. history, all under the guise of protecting people from the coronavirus?
According to H.R. 6666’s text: The taxpayer funds will be used to “trace and monitor the contacts of infected individuals, and to support the quarantine of those contacts. That means government comes to your home, taps on your door and demands you take a COVID-19 test. And if you test positive, that means the government makes sure you stay at home. How? Good question.
The Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are in control of disbursing the $100 billion to local governments to carry out the COVID-19 testing —
It’s all for the good of the country, dontcha know.
Democrat Rep. Bobby Rush said - “Reopening our economy and getting back to normal will be all but impossible if we do not step up our testing efforts and implement robust and widespread contact tracing.”
This is on his House webpage.
“HR 6666 violates inalienable rights to one’s person, home and property, to one’s life, freedoms, privacy and security,” the petition states. “It is a violation of the Fourth Amendment, as well as the First, Fifth, Eighth and Ninth amendments … It is an illegal act of forced medical treatment upon We the People and an invasion into our local communities … [it] grants the [feds] broad authority … to hunt down people with no reasonable suspicion of threat to
public health … HR 6666 is unconstitutional, unacceptable and unlawful.” a mass surveillance for government against society.
This resolution, has no right to see the light of day.
