It's not like Israel as been electing angels every year. They literally keep electing the most right wing factions possible in their Government. The only difference between Hamas and the far right government that Netanyahu governs is that the latter has nukes and one of the most well armed terrorists on the planet they call the IDF, while the Palestinian terrorists are armed with firecrackers.

Roy Shaposhnik:I am an Israeli living in Europe. I never served in any role in the Israeli intelligence services," Shaposhnik told me. "I don’t have any knowledge of the events that took place in Jordan or of the people involved. I am a close personal friend of Prince Hamzah."

Shaposhnik, 41, was a political operative in the centrist Kadima party in Israel 15 years ago. He served as an adviser to then Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

Later he went to the private sector and worked for U.S. businessman Erik Prince's security company. After several years he established his own company, RS Logistical Solutions, which provided services to the U.S. State Department and other governments around the world. Shaposhnik’s company also provided logistical services to Prince’s company as it was training Iraqi soldiers in Jordan. This is when he met Prince Hamzah through a mutual friend. The pair and their families became close friends.

There were 228 subjects who had samples collected between 7 and 150 days after their primary series vaccine and 117 subjects who had samples collected in the same time frame after their boost. Antibody levels from 7 to 31 days after the primary series and booster were similar, but S-RBD IgG was more durable over time after the boost, regardless of prior infection status. In addition, mRNA-1273 post-boost antibody levels exceeded BNT162b2 out to 5 months.


The COVID-19 mRNA vaccine boosters increase antibody durability, suggesting enhanced long-term clinical protection from SARS-CoV-2 infection compared with the 2-shot regimen.

By contrast, in the late time interval, IgG levels after the booster mRNA vaccine were approximately 3-fold higher (GM, 29.1 µg/mL [95% CI, 24.3-34.9]) compared with the primary series vaccination (GM, 9.5 µg/mL [95% CI, 8.1-11.1]) (P < .001) (Fig 2A). We then confirmed that there was a difference in trajectories between the booster and primary series by evaluating subjects who had paired early and late samples available. Linear regression indicated a slower IgG decay after the booster compared with the primary series vaccination, with respective slopes of −0.0024 (95% CI, −0.0037 to −0.0012) vs −0.0074 (95% CI, −0.0083 to −0.0065) (P < .001) (Fig 2B).
