“Criminal! Criminal! Criminal!” – Angry Protesters Greet Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla at Award Ceremony in Israel (VIDEO)

Isaac Herzog, the President of Israel, presented the Genesis Prize, also known as the “Jewish Nobel” to Pfizer’s CEO Dr. Albert Bourla, at a ceremony in Jerusalem, Israel on Wednesday night.

According to the press release, Bourla donated his $1 million Genesis Prize award towards the construction of the Holocaust Museum of Greece in Thessaloniki, to commemorate Greek-Jewish communities wiped out by the Nazis.

“Dr. Albert Bourla was announced as the 9th Genesis Prize Laureate in January 2022. The award recognizes his leadership in delivering a vaccine against COVID-19, which saved millions of lives during the pandemic. The Genesis Prize also celebrates the boldness of his vision and willingness to assume risks, which enabled the delivery of the vaccine in record time,” the Genesis Prize Foundation said in a statement.

“In addition to honoring the vast humanitarian impact of Dr. Bourla’s leadership, the award also celebrates his pride in his Jewish identity and heritage, and his strong support for the State of Israel.”

Albert Bourla was not deterred by high stakes, by naysayers, by conspiracy or by politics. He believed in the vaccine, and invested every ounce of himself in realizing what seemed at the time a far-fetched fantasy. The vaccine was developed in record speed, utilizing the technology of tomorrow to successfully hold back a devastating pandemic,” President of Israel Isaac Herzog said.

Bourla was not well received at the Genesis Prize event tonight in Jerusalem.

A group of angry protesters met Bourla outside the venue calling him a “CRIMINAL.”


Here’s another video of the protesters:

On Sunday, Albert Bourla (Pfizer CEO) held an interview with Israel journalist, Adir Yanko.

Bourla was asked if there are new adverse effects that he was not aware of before.

“We haven’t seen, although the vaccines have been used in billions now of people and they have been scrutinized because of the publicity of COVID a lot. So I don’t think there is any vaccine that anyone can feel safer given the extensive use of experience that you have with it,” Bourla responded.

Israel – 72% vaccinated

Israel doesn’t have a high rate of full vaccination (66%), but the country eagerly embraced all proposed boosters: four. Despite all that, Israel experienced the highest COVID-19 death rate on record this year.
