The lynching and the people who did it represent the basic of human instincts.

A Palestinian was attacked by a mob in Jerusalem and was saved by Ms. Freund, an ultra-Orthodox woman who lives in the city, who literally lay on top of him. She was injured herself, but saved his life. And there was the mob attack in Netanya, minutes after a bomb exploded there. It was truly divine intervention that saved the Palestinian who was attacked there from death. We all have a dark side. The question is what makes a person lose sight of right and wrong and unleashes these base instincts.
