Question
If the truth about the fraudulent and criminal vaccine agenda has been made public, though tumah forces attempt to censor this truth, are the rabbis who are contacted on how to choose whether to allow oneself to blindly trust criminals (their criminal records ARE open to the public) responsible for the incalculable harm they cause by misleading people to unquestioningly get the lethal injections?
Answer
ב"ה Shalom, Firstly, while you are entitled to your opinions about the vaccine , this doesn't make it permissible to slander Rabbis, which is a extremely severe sin. Secondly, listening to doctors is also something which is codified in the Shulchan Aruch. in the laws of Yom Kippur.(שולחן ערוך סי' תרי"ח משנ"ב ס"ק י'. ) And where there is a dispute among doctors in regard to medical treatment, the majority of doctors is followed. There is a clear majority among doctors in Israel and the world to take the covid vaccine. Furthermore, Rabbis have ruled in the past in regard to previous vaccines, that even if there is a small danger taking the vaccine, while there is a greater danger not being vaccinated, then the greater danger outweighs the lesser one and people must be vaccinated. One of the commentators on the Mishna תפארת ישראל - בועז מסכת אבות פרק ג אות א)) even praises the British physician and scientist, Edward Jenner who created the smallpox vaccine , and said he has a portion in "Olam Haba" for all the thousands of people he saved. Thirdly, I wonder why this vaccine has attracted so many conspiracy theories compared to vaccines of the past. I did come across some academic material, relating the basis of these theories of the past to the fear of parents of getting their children vaccinated. The covid vaccine, on the other hand, has begun with adults and now the vaccine has received the ok from the FDA in regard to inoculating children. Thank G-d theses fears of the past were overcome and now , many diseases of this past have been eradicated to one degree or another from this world. I personally know 3 people who suffer to this day from polio, which now has become something of the past. We can say the same about diphtheria, whooping cough, smallpox, measles, tetanus, hepatitis B and others. Be'zrat Hashem, we pray that the with the covid vaccine, we will soon see the end of the covid-19 pandemic. All the best
