JERUSALEM (Reuters) - More than two dozen Israeli motorists manoeuvred around the dead body of a road accident victim lying in the middle of a busy intersection, failing to stop to help in an incident captured by a traffic camera.

...

Israelis have a reputation for rushing to the scene of accidents or Palestinian bombings to help victims, and the apparent apathy shown in Yisraeli's case touched off a public debate over whether Israeli society has become uncaring.

There is no "uncaring" here!

If one is not a doctor or a trained responder, then of course they shouldn't get out in mid-day traffic to investigate something like that.

Call the police, call an ambulance, whatever... You'd only be blocking emergency access and creating a worse situation by stopping your vehicle.

Maybe they thought it was some new kind of speed bump....sort of like a traffic circle to slow the cars down..

Maybe they thought the victim was booby-trapped. They do that kind of stuff there.

So is Reuter’s perverse point that only Jews drove by?

That was definitely my first thought! Even corpses seem susceptible to Sudden Jihad Syndrome in that part of the world.

You have a good point. Last year I was in a car in Los Angeles when a man collapsed in the street. No one stopped to help him but when I called 911, the operator told me I was about the 10th to call and an ambulance was on its way.

How would you know if it wasn’t a booby trap set up by the Palis?

People don’t know what things are in the road, as they zip buy -— I recall there was a dead body (also a motorcyle accident — the bike went into a construction ditch) on the side of Houston I-45 for several days. (This may have been Dallas.)

My sister would do that. I stopped by her business, and there was a dead squirrel in front. She wouldn't touch it, even with a shovel. I scooped it up [with a shovel] and tossed it into the bushes, but it got hung up on a bush, and there it remained for weeks while it disintegrated.

But, I don't blame otherwise normal people for driving around a DB in that part of the world, per #3.

Booby trapped was what I thought, too. But somebody should at least have called the Israeli equivalent of 911.

You can hide a lot of explosives under clothing.

WORLD (REALITY) - Almost 1 billion muslims manoeuvred around the dead bodies of thousands of jihadi victims, encouraraged by their allies in the leftist media.
...

Muslims and leftist “journalists” have a reputation for cheering the scene of muslim bombings and beheadings of Christian and Jewish victims...

There I fixed it.
