The Israeli Supreme Court Ordered the Israeli Government to Investigate the Number of Children Currently Suffering From EHS

Dafna Tachover, Jul 22, 2013

On July 18, 2013, the Israeli Supreme Court ordered the Israeli Government to investigate how many children in Israel already suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS). The Government must submit the result of its investigation to the court by November 16, 2013.

The Order was issued in response to a Petition to the Israeli Supreme Court to ban Wi-Fi in schools submitted in August, 2012.

This order is the result of an extensive brief written by Attorney Dafna Tachover and submitted to the Court on June 13, 2013. A 65-page brief, supported by 640 pages of appendices, emphasized the problem of EHS and claimed that it is unreasonable to expose children to WiFi when it is proven to cause sickness.

In the Supreme Court hearing, when the Govt. was asked what it would do if a child with EHS attended a school, the attorney for the Gov. answered: “The WiFi will be turned off in the school.”

The brief attempted to prove the following:
(1) Prove EHS is an existing illness, caused by EMFs
(2) Prove that the thermal safety standard was proven false as early as 40 years ago.
(3) Prove that it is unreasonable to rely on WHO considering it is corrupt.
(4) Prove that the Gov’s evaluation on the issue was unprofessional and negligent at best.
(5) Prove how the industry intentionally misled the public

Regarding the safety standards the brief claimed that the contention of the Govt. that the existing Israeli standard (1/10 of the Thermal Standard) “Protects with absolute certainty from known adverse health effects” is ridiculous as:

  • How can it be protective if people are sick with EHS?
  • How can it be protective when thousands of papers prove biological effects?
  • How can it be protective when even WHO declared RF a Group 2B carcinogen?


The brief emphasized the EHS issue to indicate that the damage already exists. Affidavits from 7 professionals with EHS were provided, including an affidavit of a mother both daughters of whom suffer from EHS, supporting scientific evidence was presented. It was shown that the government did nothing to investigate the issue despite ample notice and legal obligation. In addition, the brief attempted to demonstrate the ridiculousness of the claim that the condition does not exist and/or that it is not proven to be caused by EMF’s.

It should be noted that in Ms. Tachover’s correspondence with the Govt. Committee on the issue of Wi-Fi in schools prior to the submission of the lawsuit, the Committee eventually admitted the existence of EHS – the committee in its final report wrote: “If there is a child with sensitivity to RF radiation, the Ministry will provide a solution on an individual basis”.

What next: On Nov. 16 the Govt. must submit its Answer and the Plaintiffs will have to respond 15 days later. The Court indicated that following the submission of these responses, it intends to reach a decision.

It looks like legal action against wireless RF is the flavour of the month with this recent announcement in Canada:

Merchant Law Group LLP is pursuing litigation concerning cellular phone use and brain tumours in Canada.

More information can be found here

Wireless RF is used by Smart Meters to communicate power usage data back to the Power Utilities. When the smart meter HAN radio is turned on so that smart appliances can integrate with the meter as well as allowing consumers to connect wirelessly with hand held devices to view their power usage, we are likely to see more people experiencing EHS symptoms. It is time for our negligent Government and Power Utilities to investigate claims made by people in Victoria that smart meter RF is impairing people’s health otherwise they can expect to look forward to similar legal actions in Victoria in the near future.

    “Energy companies will be required to install smart meters and take all reasonable steps to reach everyone. However, we do not expect energy companies to take legal action to fit a smart meter if they cannot get the householder’s co-operation.”

    I hope the people in the UK are aware of this – they CAN refuse and expect no legal action to be taken against them!

    How many here know that the Governor overseeing the Council when it puts its ‘order’ in effect was a DOCTOR of infertility and andrology? We are now being told to take laptops off our laps because WIFI can damage the reproductive system and that men should not keep mobile phones in their hip pockets? When our own medical community refuses to acknowledge the dangers of this radiation it’s time for a complete overhaul not just of the medical proffession, but government to bring it back to one which values its citizens’ health and well-being over profits.

      We are getting the smart meters in the U.S. and many places have no opt-outs available. Our government is bought and paid for by the industry. They are denying the severe symptoms some people are having to the radio frequency radiation from these meters. It is happening all over the world. Apparently we are suppose to believe that all of those people are imagining the exact same constellation of symptoms and that it happened at the exact same time as they got meter installed. Apparently that is just a coincidence–all over the world!!!! Is there a honest politician who will look at the evidence and try to help those of us who are suffering from this? Are we expendable and not worth helping?? Is the money factor so large that we who have EHS will just be written off? I pray the answer is no but in my heart, I know that money rules and special interests will win out–maybe not forever, but certainly long enough to destroy thousands of peoples lives. Please, government officials, recognize the true suffering of the people and do your damn jobs and protect us.

    They just want to take the easy option. Remote metering, no meter readers to pay, all the profits to the companies and (presumable) the government. Now we are seeing TV advertising telling us that if we use power off-peak we will save money – a likely story! Even if this happened at first, and I for one don’t believe it will because the meters have got to be paid for by somebody, (guess who?) the bills will very soon go up and I’m sure they will be able to think up some rationale for it, they’re good with words (lies!) and believe we are a bunch of ignorant idiots.

  3. Dieter Keller says:

    I sent a letter objecting the Gestapo tactics used by United Energy some days later received a big enveloper with all the Propaganda, I don’t believe a word of it.

    I have had problems sleeping for some years now, waking during the night, tossing and turning not getting good rest at all. My Wireless Modem is in my bedroom one meter from my head, I thought I will switch it off at night to see what the result is, UNBELIEVABLE the best sleep I have had for years. The verdict is, TURN OFF ALL YOUR Wi-FI at night !

  4. Terry says:

    Wake up Napthine before it’s too late. You and your cabinet should be made to prove in a court of law, beyond any doubt, that Smart Meters are safe, or you could ‘personally’ start signing assurances to people of Victoria that you will be held personally responsible for any ill health and suffering. I bet you wont though…will you?

    • Pam says:

      You can bet he won’t – I live in his Electorate and he just keeps “passing the buck”.

      • Freedom Rules says:

        I don’t want any signed ‘assurances’ from this phony Dr Napthine, just want all smart meters GONE asap!! We can already feel the radiation – Action must be taken, there is no time to waste on this issue as people are slowly dying from preventable diseases attributed to smart meters being placed on their homes. Even cancer is preventable – but the government would rather search for a ‘cure’ (like that’s really going to happen!) than take steps to find the actual causes of such devastating illnesses.

    MEDIA RELEASE – Powercor Fails To Guarantee Safety of Smart Meters
    Posted on July 27, 2012 by Stop Smart Meters Australia
    Stop Smart Meters Australia
    Powercor Fails To Guarantee Safety of Smart Meters
    Responding to concerns a customer has on the health effects of smart meters, Powercor truthfully declared in writing that “We are not in a position to give you any guarantees or assurances about the smart meters and your health concerns.”

    Yet Hon. Michael O’Brien, Minister for Energy and Resources, had been continually pronouncing through the media that smart meters are categorically safe and have absolutely no effects on people’s health. If smart meters are safe, why can’t power distributors guarantee their safety?

    This Customer who Mrs Janet Hogarty of PowerCor wrote to, is having his name withheld for reasons of privacy by us of SSMA and for legal reasons. The spokesperson for Stop Smart Meters Australia, said “We find it astonishing that despite the mounting evidence, Minister O’ Brien fails to acknowledge that a percentage of the Victorian population is sensitive to microwave radiation and suffer adverse health effects resulting from the installation of Smart Meters. Symptoms include disrupted sleep, headaches, nausea, dizziness, heart palpitations and tinnitus (ringing in ears) etc. Many of these people have medical certificates attributing their condition to smart meters.”
    Yet the Power Companies still keep on telling the people of Victoria a raft of Lies that the Microwave so-called Smart Meters are safe for peoples Health.
    I and the mounting thousands of Intelligent Victorians find this ASTOUNDING THAT THIS incumbent VICTORIAN Government in concert with the Power Companies here in Victoria keep on spreading these LIES.

    We have the World Health Organisation not only admitting that these Microwave Smart Meters are now classed as Type 2B Carcinogen Meters along with highly respected Doctors of Medicine World-Wide and other Health professionals.
    It is clear to me and the fast growing numbers of intelligent Victorians and people World-Wide that the people supporting this Microwave Smart Meter Industry are Corrupt, and will do anything and everything in their power to keep on FOISTING these ACCURSED so-called Smart Meters on the Victorian Public and other electricity customers World-Wide just to keep on making Oodles of Cash, and they don’t give a damn how sick their customers are becoming. Shame on them!

    • Pam says:

      I have a letter from Powercor saying they can’t guarantee my safety either, but but!!!!! I can’t opt out either – well I have and will NEVER have a dumb Smart Meter. Box all locked up and all signs displayed.

      • Sharron says:

        These companies really are a joke – I’m with you, Pam … standing firm. They are nothing but service providers who have let their ill-conceived plans go to their big, fat heads. They do not like being challenged but so what! Smart meters were never wanted and never should have been forced onto customers without consent or discussion… End of Story.

  6. Is the truth emerging slowly?

    Something like this NEEDS to be done in Aus too
