Roi Tov Columnist: Strategic Sewage!
The chances that the sewage system of Tel Aviv would be featured here a third time were slim, yet, after a deep-kept secret, literally underground kept, was disclosed on July 20, 2013, the topic was unavoidable. Hebrew media are suspiciously obsessed with the topic, suspiciously so, until one remembers Prime Minister Netanyahu's nickname. If asked, he probably would claim that it was derived by duplicating the first two letters of his name in Hebrew, Binyamin became Bibi. Having grown up in the USA and being more Republican than Israeli, he probably failed to see that most Hebrew speakers would analyze the word differently. Bib is a hole in the ground, bib shofchin is a sewage hole, though the second word is usually skipped. Bibi can be understood as my sewage. Humbly, Hebrew media are secretly laughing at the stained, stinky leader. Sunken Bus, Tel Aviv's Crumbling Infrastructure, Sewage Sludge Management. A Short but Stinky Introduction. Crumbling infrastructures are one of the most evident signs that a terror attack took place. Nowhere was that as evident as in the 9/11 attacks. The rubble and the dust left behind by the twin towers on what used to be the world's largest financial center were an undeniable and large testimony of the perpetrators' violence. The USA government was fast, incredibly fast, in the destruction of the evidence, thus sabotaging any credible investigation of the event. Too bad for the Afghani and Iraqi people. Ayalon Highway, January 8, 2013. The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Crumbling infrastructures are one of the most evident signs that a terror attack took place, however, sometimes they appear far away from the attack site, and do so in an unpredictable way. In Israel, crumbling infrastractures are a reminder that the State is spending incredible amounts of money attacking humanity. Little is Ayalon Highway, January 8, 2013. Superstorm Sandy: A Diary in the Dark. In mid-2011, a bus parked on the busy intersection of Derech Namir and Arlosoroff fell into the ground after the sewage system below it collapsed Crumbling Testimony of Terror. On January 1, 2012, a water main burst underneath Shaul Hamelech Street and Derech Namir blocking the north bound lanes of the latter, which is the main road out of the city. The result was a traffic jam that probably will be remembered for the rest of this young century. These and other events lose significance compared with the Superstorm in Tel Aviv. On January 7, 2013, 60mm of rain fell on the city in a few hours. This is unusual. The images show the dramatic result. Ayalon Highway was flooded. Secret Sewage. On July 20, 2013, the drivers using the Ayalon Highway while listening to the radio were surprised to find out that in the last three years, a sewage tunnel had been activated under the highway.
