Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but if you are an American, Biden has just handed you the keys to your new house. When President Joe Biden mandated that all Federal employees must be vaccinated, and even private sector employers should have the same requirement, he washed the usual antidiscrimination laws down the drain. If you are not vaccinated, for whatever reason, you are now a second-class citizen, and your employer is allowed to discriminate against you and prevent you from coming to work.

This is an unprecedented decision, one that clearly states America is no longer a free state. If you do not do what the doctor orders for your body, you can expect to pay the consequences economically. Expect to be fired from your job and to have your freedom severely limited. Expect that with time you will go bankrupt and become dependent upon the government. Expect that the same government will then require you to be vaccinated to receive the unemployment and welfare payments due to you by law.

Now, it is very likely that many people will challenge this decision and fight it. It could very well be deemed unconstitutional, but so could the lockdowns, limitations, and mandated isolations that we have become accustomed to of late. Because a global pandemic has been declared, we are now on a prolonged war footing, and the usual rights and freedoms we have come to depend upon and taken for granted have become things of the past.

What Biden has implied for many Americans, is that they no longer have control over their own bodies and their lives. If you want to be stubborn for whatever reason and refuse to take the Covid-19 vaccine, you can kiss your future goodbye. The government has declared it will no longer play nice, and it has big guns and vast resources to force its will upon you and shove its medicine down your throat.

If you are such a person, who doesn’t fit into the current American system, now is the perfect time to leave. If your job is already in jeopardy then so is your house, but as a Jew, lucky for you, that house is expendable. Sell it and come claim the keys to your new house in Israel.

You can thank Biden for that because his actions could be the key to your decision. He has effectively made the decision that much easier for you. You don’t need to fight the war in America, that is not your battle. Your place is in Israel.

Sure, the situation in Israel isn’t that much better. The Israeli government is also preaching the wonders of vaccination and issuing green passports to the vaccinated, but this is your country, and you have a profound say over it.

The temporary house you leave behind in America will be replaced by a permanent place in your homeland. You will help mold the nation to its proper form and fight your battles for Israel. In America you may be expendable and unwanted, but in Israel you are family and are deeply wanted and needed.
