Moshe Yatom Death – Dr. Moshe Yatom, a prominent Israeli psychiatrist who was honored for his work in healing serious mental diseases, died in his Tel Aviv home. Dr. Yatom was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a terrible suicide note that implicated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his unhappiness. The note portrayed a bleak image of a guy who had attempted for nine years to fathom Netanyahu’s cryptic thinking, only to be overwhelmed by a “waterfall of lies.” In a series of diary entries, Yatom documented the deterioration of his own once-invincible personality while treating the Prime Minister, whose thought process he compared to “a black hole of self-contradiction.”
