Imagine this scenario: Concerned about Joe Biden’s Middle East policy and the International Criminal Court’s decision to investigate war crimes in the West Bank and Gaza, Israel decides to get on everyone’s good side and announces that it will vaccinate the entire Palestinian population against Covid-19.

Many deaths were a consequence of the pandemic – limitations caused by stringent hospital procedures, for example.  What is truly concerning however, is that our social media feeds have turned into obituary columns, where we seem to appease our lack of human...
