Israel's Burning, And The Fires Could Have Been Prevented

Summer came with a bang, exploded in fiery heat. Just a few weeks ago, we had been complaining about unseasonable cold. Now the temperatures are at record highs. And to make things hotter and much more dangerous, there are horrendous fires all over the country.

Some of the fires are caused by Arab terrorism. The Gazan Arab terrorists have turned balloons into weapons. That's because they've developed a way to send incendiary devices into Israel carried in the air by balloons. This has been going on for a year already, and the Likud, led by Binyamin Bibi Netanyahu hasn't had the guts to destroy the terrorist in their nests. It shouldn't concern us if there's collateral damage, meaning "non-combatants" being injured or killed. The main job of the Israeli Government is to protect Israeli citizens, not protect the enemy. At this point, I blame the government for the fires and subsequent loss of agriculture and damage of the Land.

For more information about the Arab terror in Israel's south check out Life on the border with Gaza - things people may not know (but should) on facebook. The photos above are from that facebook page.

There are also large uncontrollable fires in the center of the country. On the whole they were caused by human carelessness. It's a Jewish/Israeli custom to light bonfires on the eve of Lag B'Omer, which we celebrated today. I wrote about our bonfire, which was on a paved surface, here. In some parts of the country, which are most susceptible to brush fire, people had been asked to refrain from lighting bonfires. Unfortunately they ignored the warnings. Also, some bonfires got out of control or weren't completely extinguished. And after the celebrants left the fires got stronger and spread.

This is not good. Israel are a small country and every drop of water is precious. We can't expect rain for over six months. All of this damage is an ecological disaster for Israel. Gd willing the fires will be put out quickly and the Arab terrorists will be destroyed.


Mr. Cohen said...

The Biblical Book of Jeremiah, chapter 17,
last verse of that chapter, teaches that:

If the Jewish people fail to observe
SHABBAT, then Jerusalem will burn.

In other words, any city in the land of Israel
where Jews fail to observe SHABBAT,
even Jerusalem, will burn with fire.

New York Times articles are
not attacking “occupation” anymore,
but the very idea of a Jewish state:


New York Times columnist Bret Stephens said:

“…the almost torrential criticism of Israel and
the mainstreaming of anti-Zionism, including
by this paper [the New York Times],
which has become so common that people
have been desensitized to its inherent bigotry.”

Why Richard Block (a Jewish Liberal-Democrat)
UNSUBSCRIBED from the New York Times:

“I am a lifelong Democrat, a political liberal,
a Reform rabbi, and for four decades, until
last week, a New York Times subscriber.

What drove me away was the paper’s incessant
denigration of Israel, a torrent of articles,
photographs, and op-ed columns that consistently
present the Jewish State in the worst possible light.”

But the Jewish people should heed the warning of the govt too, and not light fires when its known to be a danger.

So its their own fault too... adding fuel to fire... so to say.
