ABSTRACT

Moral Failure in Israel's Approach to the COVID-19 Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "Israel is different from other democracies in two ways: it has moral political values that are set forth in its Basic Laws; and its values are derived from Jewish morality. This means that Israel is not just a democracy; it is a Jewish democracy. The fight against COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] requires difficult decision-making, and those decisions should be based on the country's moral values. Instead, Israel is acting in contravention of its own moral values. Because those values are contained in its laws, this means the law is being violated as well."
