The Coming Coronavirus Vaccine

Now that most Arab nations have abandoned the mindlessly self-destructive Palestinian cause the only people who still cling bitterly to it are Western leftists and other assorted proto-fascists. 

Middle Eastern Arab nations have discovered that, as we have often noted on this blog, Israel is the solution, not the problem.

Now, it turns out, an Israeli research institute is within months of developing a vaccine against the coronavirus.

The Jerusalem Post reports the good news:

Israeli scientists are on the cusp of developing the first vaccine against the novel coronavirus, according to Science and Technology Minister Ofir Akunis. If all goes as planned, the vaccine could be ready within a few weeks and available in 90 days, according to a release.

“Congratulations to MIGAL [The Galilee Research Institute] on this exciting breakthrough,” Akunis said. “I am confident there will be further rapid progress, enabling us to provide a needed response to the grave global COVID-19 threat,” Akunis said, referring to the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

For the past four years, a team of MIGAL scientists has been developing a vaccine against infectious bronchitis virus (IBV), which causes a bronchial disease affecting poultry. The effectiveness of the vaccine has been proven in preclinical trials carried out at the Veterinary Institute.

The scientists are the research institute are forging ahead to accelerate development:

“Given the urgent global need for a human coronavirus vaccine, we are doing everything we can to accelerate development,” MIGAL CEO David Zigdon said. The vaccine could “achieve safety approval in 90 days,” he said.

It will be an oral vaccine, making it particularly accessible to the general public, Zigdon said.

“We are currently in intensive discussions with potential partners that can help accelerate the in-human trials phase and expedite completion of final-product development and regulatory activities,” he said.

Ah yes, you will say, but what about the idiots in the BDS movement.

You know about the BDS movement. Supported by major members of the Democratic Party, it wants to declare economic warfare on Israel… by boycotting its products, divesting stock in its companies and sanctioning it. 

Will these idiot culture warriors boycott the new coronavirus vaccine?

The Daily Wire reports:

Online, pro-Israel voices quickly mocked those who support the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to destroy the state of Israel.

As if that were not bad enough, the Jerusalem Post recently reported that Israeli scientists have advanced research on a cure for cancer:

“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator. AEBi developed the SoAP platform, which provides functional leads to very difficult targets.

The potentially game-changing anti-cancer drug is based on SoAP technology, which belongs to the phage display group of technologies. It involves the introduction of DNA coding for a protein, such as an antibody, into a bacteriophage – a virus that infects bacteria. That protein is then displayed on the surface of the phage. Researchers can use these protein-displaying phages to screen for interactions with other proteins, DNA sequences and small molecules.

“Our cancer cure will be effective from day one, will last a duration of a few weeks and will have no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments on the market,” Aridor said. “Our solution will be both generic and personal.”

You do not think that anyone would be so anti-Semitic that they would prefer sacrificing lives to doing business with Israel. You would be wrong.

When Capetown, South Africa was suffering a severe water shortage, the local officials discovered that they could alleviate the problem by building desalination plants. But then they discovered that the companies who had the most advanced desalination technology were Israeli. They called off the projects. Better to die of thirst than to do business with Jews.

Anyway, we will see how BDS warriors react when Israeli research produces a vaccine for the coronavirus. Or when Israelis come up with a new treatment for cancer.

I can promise you one thing: you not will not go broke underestimating the intelligence of the BDS movement.

This cancer drug is 28 years too late for my first wife.

Too many people prefer to die rather than accept help from the Israelis, but HEY, it's THEIR choice! Far be it from me to force them to be smart.

All those nations and leftists who hate Israel... Ya know, if the Israelis get an Coronavirus antidote, and mass produce it, and tell the aforementioned nations and leftists that THEY WILL GET no, NO, absolutely ZERO of that antidote until they "get right with Jehovah", and provi9de the proof thereof...

No matter, the fewer swamp called the leftist mind will blame the Jews for the virus in the first place. Of course, they have the antidote, they must have created it! In coffee houses across the Muslim world, the links to the Jews are being fashioned as I type. Iran is days away from a public announcement accusing the Jews of seeding the virus in the clouds that descend on Tehran.

"ready within a few weeks and available in 90 days"

Don't forget about the year (or more) it will take the FDA to approve it.

Until that's done it won't be "available" for anyone.
