An Israeli student conducted a social experiment that proves just how honest Israelis really are. People in other countries did not fare as well.
He had a blind man approach strangers and ask them to break a 20-shekel bill which was actually a 100-shekel note. Not one person took advantage of him. One man even gave him a 20-shekel donation.
Other passersby behaved in exactly the same way when the same experiment was conducted with a 200-shekel bill.
A similar experiment was carried out in Australia where many took advantage of the blind man. This is a representation of Israeli society as a whole – a society in which people truly care about one another.
