An American tourist riding in a Taxi in Israel. As the taxi approaches a red light, the tourist was shocked to see the driver drive right through without even slowing down. Surprised as he was, he didn't say anything, feeling himself as a 'guest' and not wanting to make any waves.

The trip continued without event until the next intersection. This time the light was green and, to the American's surprise, the cab driver brought the vehicle to a grinding halt. Unable to contain his astonishment, he turns to the driver. "Listen", he says, "when you went through the red light, I didn't say anything. But why on earth are you stopping at a green light?"

The Israeli driver looks at the American as if he was deranged. "Are you crazy?!" he shouts. "The other taxi has a red light! Do you want get us killed?!"
