100 mil for bones

Under the pressure from religious parties, the government has approved a new location for Ashkelon Barzilai Hospital’s fortified emergency room. The previous location was abandoned because some human bones were found there, which led the rabbis to declare the place a Jewish graveyard—though no evidence exists that the bones are the bones of Jews.

The Supreme Court ordered a Muslim cemetery in Jerusalem to be moved, but rabbis in the coalition are too powerful to succumb to a similar ruling. A new ER will cost 100 million shekels more than previously planned.

A visiting UN chieftain remained unconcerned that the Jewish state needs fortified emergency rooms on Gaza’s periphery.
