Hero of the Week: March 29, 2021: Vera Sharav

"The policy that lead to the murder of the elderly, those are exactly the triage policies that were formulated by bioethicists. And they were put in place just like that. And Andrew Cuomo, the Governor of New York, even stated, he knew exactly what this would do. He gave the directive that elderly were not to be treated at hospitals. That they were to be sent to nursing homes that were of course totally unprepared for anything like this. And he said the virus in nursing homes would be like fire to dry grass. I don’t think it gets more graphic than that: “fire to dry grass”. And he did it anyway. But look, the fact that this was happening all across Western countries, it’s coordinated. Somebody came up with this, again behind closed doors, behind our sight. All of them: Canada, the United States, the UK, Spain, Italy, everywhere–Israel too–this was a concerted effort to get rid of the economic burden [the elderly]. I think people need to understand that this is step one. Who’s next?" ~ Vera Sharav

This is the warning coming from somebody who experienced a totalitarian regime. That message is always the same: “We cannot let this start!”
