A lot of press has recently been written about the recent fire in Israel. Many lives were lost and people still wonder if the act was arson or innocuous. Keep in mind that this fire occurred in the middle of a drought, where trees and leaves are very dry and thereby highly flammable. A simple lit cigarette could have been the catalyst for all we know.
As a side note, ironically Greece was one of the countries that aided Israel the most, and this time of year revolved around Chanuka, where we celebrate our freedom from Greek oppression as of 2,000 years ago.
