The New Movement : Rappe (רפא) A Political Party Built on Informed Consent
I am not a political person, but this year has shown me that our leaders were not built for the task of leading us through this last year of trials and tribulations. Our eyes have been opened to the corruption, greed and apathy of the members of our government.
Out of this was born "Rappe" . Rappe (רפא) isn't just a political party, it is a movement. They stand for the people and with the people to provide transparency, solutions and support for Israeli citizens. Many of us feel that our needs are not being represented by our current government and our freedoms are being stripped away daily. This Rappe (רפא) movement is here to bring about a positive meaningful change and a breath of fresh air into the staleness of politics.
Below is their mission statement.
"We have formed a new movement and party whose one mission is engraved on its banner: To ensure that all citizens of Israel, from the newborn to the elderly, will be healthy and free! If you too have sat at home watching the destruction of the values we live by and the systems in place to uphold them, if you too are wary of the superficial explanations our Ministry of Health has offered for its extraordinary, lengthy, and extreme measures of lockdowns and experimental injection. If you too have seen our children wilting in front of endless zoom calls, if you have been left unemployed and disenfranchised and have genuine concern for what the future will bring – know that change is possible! It is not a difficult task. It simply requires many supporters. Supporters, like us, who want to live a full life, healthy and free; Supporters, who have experienced five cumulative months of lockdowns as an economically destructive and emotionally demoralizing government overreach. Supporters - among us who experience the behaviour modifications of quarantines, forced masking and social distancing as a breakdown of societal values; Supporters - who wish to understand the true risk-benefit analysis of medications and medical interventions and their alternatives through science and medicine with transparency and integrity. We at "Rappeh" will fight to change the status of the Ministry of Health into a entity that truly serves its undertaking and oath to public health. "
Last week I interviewed one of the two Anglos on the Rappe ticket, Ilana Rachel Daniel. Please see our interview, if you haven't already on my website, nettlesandpins.com/podcast.

"I joined forces with my co-founders of the Rappeh party for the same reasons you have searched and arrived at this initiative: this movement is one that, finally, raises the bar. It leaves behind the arguments of right and left, pro and anti, even religious designations, and asks of us: what are the most basic common denominators we share?
