80-year-old Lillian Bloom from Jerusalem wanted to stay with her daughter, who is undergoing severe chemotherapy in France. The Exceptions Committee responded in the negative. France, today, is included in the Israeli list of red countries. But that's not even the point.
The committee said: “All documents must be translated.”
To which Lillian Bloom replied: “There are tons of them! You don't need to know French to understand what's going on. ”
To which the Committee again replied:“ As soon as you submit the documents in Hebrew, the request will be approved. ”
