Did Israeli Doctors Try to Forcibly Sterilize Ethiopian Immigrants?

Did Israeli Doctors Try to Forcibly Sterilize Ethiopian Immigrants?

The Israeli Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman has called for an investigation into the reported administering of Depo-Provera contraceptive shots to Ethiopian immigrant women without consent. Depo-Provera is a progestrogen-only contraceptive that is administered every three months through injection. According to Dr. Paula Franklin of Marie Stopes International who spoke with TIME, it is a “safe, medium-term reversible hormonal contraceptive” that is used around the world by women of “informed consent.” However, countless Ethiopian women have reportedly been given this contraception without understanding or consent.

The news that Ethiopian women were being injected with Depo-Provera, a contraceptive shown to have links with bone loss, emerged in December 2012 following a documentary by Israeli journalist Gal Gabai. In her short film entitled “Where did the children disappear to,” Gabai revealed that, in the last decade, the birthrate among Ethiopian immigrants had decreased by 50%, writes The Jewish Daily Forward. She discovered that women were denied proper family planning counseling or an outline of birth control methods from medical staff, while others were informed that their entry into Israel would be blocked if they refused to take the contraceptive, notes the Guardian. Many had no idea what they were being injected with. In the documentary, Gabai offers two possible explanations – either it is “an intention to do good, to prevent poverty, and to help with the adjustment to Western urbanized living,” or it’s an “economic calculation to reduce immigration and absorption costs.” “This story reeks of racism, paternalism and arrogance,” Gabai told viewers during the broadcast on Israeli Education Television.

I am a supporter of the state of Israel just am I am a supporter of the right of the Palestinians to have a sovereign state. I am, however, fully aware of the tendency of the Israeli state to implement racist policies towards Arabs and, now, the black Jews–the Ethiopians.The Arabs have no choice–they were born there and that is the land of their fathers. The Ethiopian Jews, on the other hand, had a choice–they had Ethiopia. They gave it up thinking they would go to heaven–literally. Now they are learning the nature of the true state of Israel. But as to heaven itself, they will never, ever find out.

I am not a supporter of the state of Israel. However, the state has the right to forcibly sterilize all immigrants who breed like rabbits. Otherwise, native Israelis will end up being a minority in their own land in a few generations. If the immigrants do not agree to this practice, they are more than welcome to repatriate to their country of origin.

Tesema, did you forget Jesus was a jew? Ok then, I can only say they are doing exactly what Hitler tried to do to them. The only difference is, they are Caucasian and we are Negros. So, being a Negro subjects one to ill treatment by all non Negroids. That my people, is what it means in this so called civilized time of the supremacy of the white race. In simple words, fak Africans over anytime, and you will get away with it.

I recommend Israeli-Ethiopians stop prostituting and confront Kassa Kebede the pimp to stand trial for his crimes he did when he pimped them out for life to Israel.
HIV is growing in alarming rate among the Ethiopian-Israeli women as well.

So what!

what do you expect from Zionists?
Zionists are facists. Zionism was born in Europe. Europeans of the early 19th century were and still barbarians. They are not civilized but mechanised.
Civilization starts in Africa.
Zionist settlers from Europe and America in Palestine are facists and exploiters.

As a result, there is no surprise for the sterilization of Falasha women who are smuggled into Palestine by the CIA and Mosad.

It is very sad that stupid peasants from Gonder and Tigre, who claim to be the house of Israel are becoming slaves of European mulatto settlers.

May God save and enlightend them!
