A person who suffered a stroke and then became unemployed received an allowance that is not sufficient to ensure minimal subsistence. He turned to welfare authorities time and again, to no avail. He turned to the courts, to no avail. Eventually, he turned to death as an outlet.
What kind of public system did Silman encounter? When Netanyahu was finance minister, in 2004-2005, he adopted reforms that saw the worst erosion of disability allowances since they were introduced in the State of Israel. The governments of the past years also cut down housing aid budgets. While Israel’s population grew, aid budgets were decreased by more than NIS 3 billion.
And here is the most cynical example: When Silman was taken to the hospital’s burn ward there was no bed for him.
