Thai soldiers arrest Israeli businessmen

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here is a little bit of irony from the past.

A story about the accused, Mr. Hadad, visiting a young Israeli in Thai prison in 2015.

 

Quote

“You do not want to find yourself in a prison in Thailand, where there are no beds or bathrooms, just a small pipe with water and a hole to relieve yourself, Hadad said. “Just from seeing these prison cells you could become sick.” Hadad runs a local business and knows the lay of the land well enough so that he’s begun helping foreigners stay out of trouble.

Some 50,000 Jewish tourists a year come to Koh Samui, an exotic Island where foreigners sometimes get into trouble. “While it is not often, it happens from time to time that we have to attend to prisoners, mostly from Israel,” said Rabbi 
Mendy Goldshmid.

Hadad has his problems now, but it seems to me a good thing (for Israelis) that there is such personalized assistance for Israeli nationals in trouble in Samui and other international locales. Too bad more nationalities don't have that kind of localized support while abroad. Sure there are embassies and consulates but they can't easily cover everywhere.

If they behaved themselves then they wouldn't be arrested or in prison. Based on my experience on Samui they don't tend to behave themselves. They are not alone.

Yes, I have no doubt at all that there's a lot of misbehavin' going on ...

 

It seems to me this thread could use a musical interlude.

Israel is an interesting country , a democracy full of open minded people , still controlled by military people and always in the news for the wrong reasons.  

 

I always wanted to visit as a tourist but we went to Egypt instead. It was less complicated.

Sure, no military people in control in Egypt -- :whistling:
