Batman V: The Dark Knight Revives

Jerusalem Mayor continues to righteously kick your mayors’ butts.

All of them.

Somehow, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat always seems to be at the right place at the right time. As on Sunday afternoon, when the wife of Interior Minister Silvan Shalom fainted in Jerusalem’s Mahane Yehuda market, and Barkat was on the scene to revive her.

Judy Shalom Nir-Mozes came to Jerusalem for a tour of the city, guided by Barkat. However, upon arriving at the market, she passed out suddenly, and was given preliminary care by the mayor.

Nir-Mozes was then evacuated to the hospital, where her husband — who came directly from the Knesset — met her.

“Thanks for the concern,” she tweeted later. “Everything is okay. Feeling good.”

Barkat, meanwhile, tweeted: “Feel better, Judy Mozes, we’ll finish the meal at Morris’s soon.”

Meanwhile, here is Judy Mozes right before the incident.

And here is Vicky Vale.


Coincidence? I think not!
