    Oh well.

    The poor Palestinians are allowing Hamas to
    rule them. Hamas is incapable of actually
    doing decent things. They say they could
    not possibly actually conduct vaccinations
    before the end of June.

    How can they organize crowds to throw rocks,
    and groups to fire rockets in under a hour,
    but not get someone to give shots in over
    a week??

    Covid: Palestinians cancel vaccine swap deal with Israel

    The Palestinian Authority has cancelled a deal under which Israel was to
    give it at least one million Covid vaccines.

    The authority said the Pfizer jabs were too close to their expiry date.

    Earlier, Israel said it didn't need an ageing stock of vaccines and they
    were to be used to speed up the Palestinian vaccination programme.

    In return, the Palestinians were to give Israel a similar number of
    vaccines they are expecting from the Pfizer organisation later in the year.

    Palestinian Authority Health Minister Mai Alkaila said they had been
    told the jabs would expire in July or August, but, when they arrived,
    the marked date was June.

    "That's not enough time to use them, so we rejected them," she said.

    Israel has not commented on the alleged date.

    Why Palestinians are behind in Covid vaccinations
    Palestinian Authority spokesman Ibrahim Melhem said the initial delivery
    of about 90,000 doses failed to conform "to the specifications contained
    in the agreement, and accordingly Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh
    instructed the minister of health to cancel the agreement".

    "The government refuses to receive vaccines that are about to expire,"
    he said in the statement carried by the official Wafa news agency.

    Mr Melhem added that they would instead wait for the consignment of
    vaccines the authority had ordered directly from Pfizer.

    Vaccines have expiration dates so they are not used after their strength diminishes. However, the World Health Organization has advised countries
    not to throw away any expired Covid-19 doses yet, as more research is
    being done into whether they could be viable for longer.

    In a tweet earlier on Friday, Israel's new health minister Nitzan
    Horowitz said that the "coronavirus knows no borders and does not
    differentiate between people".

    He said that the "important exchange of vaccines" was in the interests
    of both sides and that he hoped for "co-operation between Israel and its Palestinian neighbours in other areas".

    Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett's office said "Israel has signed
    an agreement with the Palestinian Authority, and will supply
    approximately one million doses of Pfizer vaccine that are about to
    expire", without specifying the use-by date.

    "Israel will receive the same amount of doses of Pfizer in
    September/October 2021, on behalf of what is destined for the
    Palestinian Authority," the Israeli statement read.

    About 55% of eligible Israelis have been given both doses as part of a
    mass vaccination campaign.

    The country reached a special deal with Pfizer-BioNTech, in which it
    provided vital medical data in return for a quick rollout of the vaccine.

    Some 30% of eligible Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza
    have received at least one vaccine dose, according to Palestinian officials.

    The Palestinians have already received vaccine doses from Israel, as
    well as from Russia, China, the United Arab Emirates and the global
    Covax vaccine-sharing initiative.

    UN experts had been critical of Israel's failure to fully extend its vaccination programme to Palestinians under its control.

    The Israelis said the Palestinians were responsible for managing health
    matters in the territories.

    There would be no Hamas if Isreal would quit colonizing Palistine and
    instead start negotiating in good faith.
