Latest News: Fires are New Arab Terror Tool

At first it seemed like the fires that had begun all over Israel were just more of the periodic late summer, pre-rain fires that are almost spontaneous in climates like Israel. A month ago, after a very long dry summer, there was a bit of rain, but since then the humidity has been summer-like low, so the first fires were considered "expected."

But then the experts began to notice that the spread of new fires wasn't of "natural causes" or patterns, and on the spot investigations showed them to have been set by Arab terrorists, some who have already been caught.

Stand With Us put out a map:

Terrible fires raging in Israel that have now been confirmed by the spokesman of the fire department Yoram Levi as arson attacks. The perpetrators of these crimes have endangered thousands and caused immense damage to people's homes, lives, and of course the environment. We strongly condemn them. Praying for a swift end to the fires and the safety of all those affected.

These fires, like the peculiar lunar calendar of the Moslems, is further proof that they neither own nor love the Land. How can they destroy the flora, fauna and homes here in the Holy Land? They celebrate terror and murder, and this is just another terrorist tool for them.

The ray of true light during this terrible time is that Israel is being helped by other countries, which is so rare:
Countries send aid to fight fires across Israel
Countries that have dispatched aid so far are Greece, Italy, Croatia, Russia, Cyprus, and Turkey. The aid amounts to 10 planes. (Arutz 7)
May Gd speedily send rain to douse the flames.
Shabbat Shalom u'Mevorach
May there be a Peaceful and Blessed Shabbat for All

No surprise. When you allow criminals to have free rein then these are the results.
There was a time when the Jew in his Land was the most important but today, they seem to like the wicked instead. Sodom comes to mind.

Here in Australia we are well acquainted with the terror of a bush fire.

But I cannot imagine anything worse than knowing it to be the conceived plot of an enemy.

We uphold your people in our thoughts and prayers Batya.
