I'm glad they are going bankrupt...

But, couldn't you see these guys in a television series???
A Jewish charity whose bearded, skullcap-wearing volunteers rush to the scene of every suicide bombing in Israel is facing bankruptcy following the decline in Palestinian terrorism.

Members of Zaka were among the first to arrive at every atrocity, sifting through wreckage to gather the body parts of victim and bomber alike, in accordance with Jewish law.

Television pictures routinely showed Zaka members at work, which was so thorough it was often used to help forensic experts.

Their coverage of Israel was so extensive they became known as "The Fourth Emergency Service" after the police, fire and ambulance services.

But the de facto end of the Palestinian intifada earlier this year has led to a crushing reduction in charitable donations.
