Gender Wokeness Rejected by Soldiers in Israeli Golani Brigade Refuse to Donate Blood
Soldiers from the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have taken a stand against gender wokeness, even invading the altruistic realm of blood donations.
Soldiers from the Golani Brigade in Israel have refused to donate blood after noticing the omission of the terms “father” and “mother” from the blood donation forms and the substitution of “parent 1” and “parent 2”.
The soldiers put out a statement: “We call on the Ministry of Health: Do not mix left-wing secular agendas with life-saving issues. We live in a Jewish state that values Israel’s traditional family structure and character,” it said.
Here to discuss how Israel is facing this challenge is David Rubin, former Mayor of Shiloh, Israel, and author of “Confronting Radicals: What America Can Learn From Israel”.
- What actually happened? Were these soldiers forced to donate blood by their commanders? Their commander had merely suggested it, and it’s a good thing to offer. Whether he knew about the forms is not clear. In Israel, it’s fairly routine for soldiers to donate blood, but these soldiers, who come from traditional Jewish backgrounds, were shocked when they were presented with forms that could only be described as gender wokeness, for lack of a better term.
- Is such gender wokeness as big a problem in Israel as it is here? Not at all. Israel is a country in which most people believe in the traditional family, but the Left is active and aggressive.
- I understand that much of Israel is religious or traditional, but if so, why were mother and father eliminated from the blood donation forms? The LGBTQ fanatics have been aggressive in pushing their anti-traditional family agenda in Israel, and apparently, they have succeeded in infiltrating the Magen David health organization that oversees the blood donation project.
- Is it just a matter of time before they succeed in pushing their radical agenda all across the holy land? No, because that army unit that resisted is just a small representation of traditional Israelis that are starting to fight back and in Israel, the younger population is becoming more conservative, marrying more and having larger families.
- In your book, “Confronting Radicals: What America Can Learn from Israel”, you researched and described the Far Left’s use of semantic confusion and gender wokeness to change America and the world.
