Anyone who has had to take a patient to get emergency care at one of the causualty (emergency) ward at one of the hospitals knows how long he has to wait before a bed becomes available and the first examination carried out. He may than have to wait several hours for a bed in one of the overcrowded wards. The possibility exists that he will not be admitted because there is not enough space even in the ward's corridor. People are dying because of a lack of suitable equipment, doctors who are overtired after working double shifts, and the general chaos. Whereas the hospital in Asdod has not been built due to a lack of funds there is no shortage of money to build new religious seminaries (yeshivot) and to pay students to learn as a way of life instead of working.
