Take Your Time, Bibi

new crime fighting

Israel has been experiencing a wave of underworld killings, as rival crime families have been taking each other out, either with car bombs or in the more traditional method, shooting each other I the face.

The most recent case took place yesterday, Shabbat, in broad daylight, in Tel Aviv. It was the third assassination in recent weeks.

But, you know, Israeli criminals have been quite good about avoiding collateral damage. We live in Netanya, which is considered the crime capital of Israel (kind of like Chicago, but with more French people), and we hear about those assassinations, and we’re yet to hear about anyone getting killed who wasn’t supposed to be.

So, while we think the prime minister should do something to better handle these crimes, we also think the current means, such as a hardy bucket and a good, thick mop, are just fine.

    So Israel, the Holy Land is not quite a Holy as it should be. Actually, there is nothing new here, it has always been like that. Read the Ketuvim, same old same old nothing to do with Torah, maasim tovin etc. etc. It is too simple: "What does God want…..do justice be merciful and walk humbly with YOUR God." Paraphrased from the Prophet Michah. Too simple, but do we do it? No! Why? Because it would cut out the Rabbis Gold Mine and so and so forth.j Do the math. So simple????!!!!

  2. If only the cartels in Mexico could learn from the Israeli underworld…and I thought we lived in a time when there was no honor among thieves and thugs, so this is sort of nice to see that some criminals still have a little class.

    The violence against Mexican civilians has to stop though, and the US needs to do more to help.
