Sometimes things happen that make you realize that we have lost all hope. Moshe Chai-Israeli (62) was killed yesterday while crossing a busy intersection. He was caught between a tow truck and a cement truck and was crushed to death. After his death, caught on video, he was left in the middle of the intersection for a few minutes as cars, trucks, bus drivers and basically hundreds of people went on their daily routine.
If a society is measured by its weakest link then what does this say about us? If we are now at a stage where a human life is not worth the time of day, we have finally reached the lowest point in our existence.
When I was a kid living in Tel Aviv, one of the things you could always count on was that if you fell in the street people would rush to help you. In fact it was sort of funny to see how everyone stuck their nose in your affairs, but it was nice. Gave a feeling of family, warmth, things we as Israelis have always prided ourselves on.
That is now over. We lost something as a nation that made us special.
Moshe Chai Israeli. Moshe, the name of our biblical father. Chai, the name that means life and Israeli, basically all of us.
I believe in signs. I think that Moshe Chai Israeli dying unnoticed in the middle of the road is one of those signs. As a nation and country that has known the wrath of God in all its forms we really need to watch it now !!
