"Just Like America"

One of the very annoying things during my visits to the states is the news.


celebrities
murders
scandals
and all of the above

That's the best way of describing the contents. It's rare to discover anything of real importance.

Yes, I do have my complaints about Israeli news, which is generally Left-wing propaganda, rather than objective balanced reporting. But at least the subjects are serious, security, politics etc.

Yesterday, it was different. The headlines were about a murdered family. Signs indicated that the father/husband murdered his wife and children and then committed suicide. This is no lower class, unemployed, never fit in immigrant family.

The couple were police officers from good and successful families. The media is full of stories about what a happy couple they were. That is except for a woman interviewed on Israeli TV, who reported terrible shouting that morning. When asked what was said:

"I quickly went into my house and closed the door. I didn't want to hear."

Maybe they can hypnotise her.

What happened to us? I thought that Jews didn't kill Jews. Tragic...

That Jews kill Jews is unfortunately old new. But this is a family that imploded into oblivion.

Shavua Tov!
The husband was involved with investigating drug dealers in Lod. I hope the investigators research this case very carefully. It may have been a hit, not a suicide.

I guess it's a job for CSI. G-d willing they'll discover the truth.
