“You know, in Israel they vaccinate everybody. Israel is way cooler than this lame place,” says one of the characters in line for the vaccine.
In an episode that aired on Wednesday evening, American animated sit-com South Park featured Israel’s successful vaccination campaign.
“Even in South Park they already know – in Israel, they are returning to life!” Prime Minister Netanyahu tweeted.
“This is how you do pandemic humor when it comes to Israel. Watch and learn from South Park.” tweeted Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Gilad Erdan, referring to Saturday Night Live comedian Michael Che’s recent anti-Semitic libel that Israel vaccinates only its Jewish citizens.
Watch these two snips from the episode!

HELP ISRAELIS BATTLE CORONA!
Donate to the Corona Emergency Relief Fund. Coronavirus has taken a huge toll on the people of Israel. The poor, elderly and ill are most vulnerable.
Israeli soldiers, security officers and medical care providers operate under great danger and risk to life.
Over 1 million Israelis are out of work. Many cannot make ends meet. We provide financial aid, food, medical supplies and more. Funds are distributed where needed most. The time to act is now!
United with Israel extends a special note of appreciation to the Genesis Prize for their generous support.
