Israel: Killed over Parking Spot

‘An indication of an increase in violence in Israel was clearly demonstrated Tuesday when a Holon man, Yosef Bavli, parked his van in a space that was claimed by a neighbor of his, Yaron Kabaz. Kabaz, who didn’t even own a car, was so perturbed by this that he let the air out of Bavli tires. When Bavli came back later with a friend to pick up the car, an intense argument broke out, which ended with Bavli being stabbed to death by the parking space “owner”,’ reports One Jerusalem.

  • doesnt that happen everywhere? Also in my neighborhood things like that can happen. Is that an indication of an increace of violence? Right now in Germany we have a new discussion about violence against children. In the last months many children were killed by their mothers. Neighbors says they didnt recognized anything. Is that now an indication on an increace of violence in Germany? People, especially Journalists should be very carefully with these kind of issues. Sometimes it just draws a wrong pictre on the real daily life.
