On Tuesday, Hollywood actress, Trump-hater and now apparent vicious anti-Semite Rosanna Arquette issued a tweet (later deleted) insinuating a Jewish conspiracy behind the ravaging of the world by the coronavirus, ranting, “I’m still confused, so Israel has been working on a corona virus vaccine for a year already ? (so they knew )Vaccines take a long time to know if they are safe and KUSHNER OSCAR is the major investor in the new vaccine that is supposedly coming here. lives at risk for profit.”
Arquette’s vicious anti-Semitism drew immediate condemnation:
Great, we're now at the "Hollywood celebrities are blaming the Jews" phase of Coronavirus. https://t.co/vItXNIzQJp

Incidentally, because Arquette is too emptyheaded to realize this, there are TONS of coronaviruses out there. They're not a new thing. This particular strain, COVID-19, is new.

More conspiracy theories from Branch Bernardians aimed at the Jewish state. No sources, incorrect opinions, and a malevolent conclusion to fit your narrative.
Enough is enough! https://t.co/l38xyyUCqC

This person doesn't understand biology or chemistry in any capacity. Coronavirus is a class of viruses. Covid-19 is a variant, so yes they could have been working on this class of virus before this particular strain got people sick. https://t.co/ygiHejuPet

Speaking to The Guardian last May, Arquette boasted, “I’m a ‘take no sh**’ kind of person. I’ve never kept my mouth shut, especially as my industry is so misogynistic. I’ve got a reputation as a troublemaker.”
Last August Arquette pronounced her verdict regarding President Trump, tweeting, “The president of the United States of America incites racist violence. The end.”
In February 2020, Arquette boasted, “Growing up in a family of activists and artists, I was taught at an early age to speak up for myself and for others. As a young girl, I accompanied my mother, Mardi Arquette, while she marched for civil rights alongside Martin Luther King Jr. Her grassroots approach and bohemian lifestyle shaped my worldview and motivated me to use my voice not only to cultivate the life I wanted but also to become a change-maker.”
The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs has pointed out Israel’s consistent efforts to help others:
Israel has a heightened sense of humanitarian awareness and responsibility. With aid teams poised to respond in the wake of natural or man-made disasters anywhere in the world, Israel’s 200-strong relief team was the first on the scene in January 2010 after the earthquake hit Haiti. Israel helped save thousands of lives. In March 2011 following the devastating earthquakes in Japan, Israel was one of the first countries to send aid according to the needs and request of the Japanese government, and one of the first states to send a medical team and set up a field clinic. By tragic circumstance, Israel is a world leader in handling mass casualties. No other country can dispatch search and rescue teams and field hospitals as fast and effectively. Israeli efforts also include relief to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and first response aid in the wake of the 2004 tsunami with 60 tons of international aid to Indonesia, and 82 tons of relief to Sri Lanka alone.
Since 1959, Israeli doctors have been offering eye camps to treat ocular diseases to people throughout the developing world … Since 1995 Israeli doctors acting through Save a Child’s Heart have been giving kids from around the world, including from the Palestinian Authority (PA), Iraq, Jordan and other Arab nations free life-saving heart operations. Since the organization first started 2,300 children have been treated, and almost half are from the PA, Jordan and Iraq.
On Sunday, Haaretz reported on the work Israeli scientists have done:
Scientists at Israel’s Institute for Biological Research are expected to announce in the coming days that they have completed development of a vaccine for the new coronavirus COVID-19. According to medical sources, the scientists have recently had a significant breakthrough in understanding the biological mechanism and qualities of the virus, including better diagnostic capability, production of antibodies for those who already have the virus and development of a vaccine. The development process requires a series of tests and experiments that may last many months before the vaccination is deemed effective or safe to use.
The Jerusalem Post noted:
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.
Akunis stated, “Congratulations to MIGAL [The Galilee Research Institute] on this exciting breakthrough. I am confident there will be further rapid progress, enabling us to provide a needed response to the grave global COVID-19 threat.”
