Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a new law (CS/HB 805), which allows Hatzalah — a private Emergency Medical Service that caters to wealthy Jewish communities of South Florida — to operate without special licensing requirements:
In an event attended by Rabbonim, Hatzalah volunteers, and many community activists and members, DeSantis signed the bill into law at The Shul of Bal Harbour in Surfside.
Hatzalah of South Florida is now legally allowed to use lights and sirens while responding to emergencies in their private vehicles, and allowed to transport patients to the hospital in their state-of-the art ambulances.
Hatzalah of South Florida is the first — and for the time being – only private volunteer faith-based 911 response team in the state.
Additionally, the law prohibits local governments from banning such ambulance services from operating, while also exempting them from fees or licensing requirements.
Of course, this law is a blatant violation of the so-called separation of church and state that Jews are such big advocates of — but only when it deals with Christianity.
But no one becomes governor of a state like Florida without pandering to the huge, wealthy Jewish population — and DeSantis is openly — if not obnoxiously pro-Israel.
As we reported last year, DeSantis allowed the state to issue special license plates emblazoned with the “Star of David” that read “Florida Stands With Israel” — and the proceeds from the sale of those plates went to — yes — Hatzalah, the private EMS service he just gave official legal status to.
Last year, a Jewish woman running for Congress in Florida openly stated that she wanted to by a law to make Jews a legally protected class.
Today in America, if you want to prove just how “American” you are, you unconditionally support the foreign nation of Israel — and you support any laws that give Jews special legal status and protections — such as making “antisemtism” illegal in Florida, which DeSantis did in 2019.
