I'm not going to say that all decisions of the Bitu'ach Le'umi are correct and speedy, but destroying a branch and all of the documents and files certainly won't help anybody. It's a criminal act, and the police should arrest all involved.

If the leaders of this movement were really responsible, serious and cared about others, they would have taken a strong stand against Silman's horrid, fatal act. They should have admitted that they have gone much too far. Instead, they have sympathized with him and now another person has done the same suicidal action, self-immolated.

Killing oneself as a political protest isn't a Jewish concept. Suicide for any reason is forbidden. The Israeli media has been promoting the faux social justice sic movement from its beginning last summer. Israeli TV even cancelled scheduled programs to broadcast the entertainment at the demonstrations. It's clear that the anarchists have very powerful backers.
The anarchy they promote endangers Israeli law and democracy. The "me" and the "I want" philosophy are illegal and immoral. IMRA reported that Israeli holiday homes owned by people who live abroad are being taken over by squatters. If the owners are unaware of the squatters for the first month, it is extremely difficult to remove them.
There has been a totally preposterous proposal by Jerusalem secular Leftists associated with the faux social justice movement to try to force those who own holiday homes to rent them out to those looking for affordable housing when the owners aren't using them. It makes no sense at all. Why should people allow strangers into their homes to use their belongings? We all must learn to live within our means. Sometimes you can't afford to live in the neighborhood or city you want. And you can't afford to buy what you want either. That's life. No country gives you all you want.
One of the things that we heard at the senior citizen lecture was that Bituach Le'umi doesn't cover all expenses, and we must have additional pensions. I wish I had understood that decades ago when I was just starting to work. Now I have to live on much less. That's life.
