Journalist Oshrat Kotler slammed Prime Minister Bennett's statements last week during which he claimed that "vaccine-refusers are hurting us all."
Over the weekend, Kotler responded on Facebook, "Those who were vaccinated become infected with coronavirus and infect others with coronavirus, and also develop serious illness. So on what basis, exactly, are you demanding a million people who are concerned about the vaccine to go get vaccinated? I also got vaccinated, and suffered from a very frightening inflammation of the heart muscle, to this day I suffer from arrhythmias, and impaired thyroid activity."
"There are thousands more in the country like me! The FDA warns of this side effect as well as others that have been discovered in the meantime, so how dare you underestimate the concerns of a million people? How dare you turn them into untouchables, into people who endanger others?" Kotler wrote.
Speaking on Sunday morning to Golan Yochpaz and Anat Davidov on 103FM, Kotler said she had watched the speech delivered by Prime Minister Bennett, and admitted: "I was terrified, it still terrifies me. It is a divisive, inciting text with no scientific basis."
