Dozens of Simultaneous Fires in Northern Israel are ĎArab Arsoní
Israel National News ^ | 7/1/09 | Gil Ronen

(IsraelNN.com) Fire fighters in northern Israel fought dozens of blazes that broke out during the day Wednesday, most of them around noontime.

A source in the Hadera Fire Services told News1 that due to the fact that numerous fires broke out in a relatively limited area, the working assumption is that they were deliberately set. “We still do not know how the fires were set and we do not have details about the arsonist or arsonists,” he said.

Put down that fire extinguisher and pick up that shotgun.

Stop the fire before the flames are formed.

Sounds like the premise in the Minority Report, only we're talking potential arsenests vs potential murderers.


The following is directed to all Freepers in general.



Some Freepers see everything through a red, white, and blue filter.  Lets prove right now how many of us do.  1% of the Freepathon total has been reached.

Do the deed.  Click those smiling faces right now.  Spread the word...

Been wondering how long it would take the ROPers to figure this one out. Coming to a forest near you soon.

“Been wondering how long it would take the ROPers to figure this one out. Coming to a forest near you soon.”

They’ve been doing this to the Western US for some years now.

I think we should give them what they are asking for.

How long will it take for a nuclear Iran to hit the button?

I'm sure that kicking the Koranimals out of Israel would get rid of the problem.

Same old religion of destruction

2005

Arabs have resumed using arson as a weapon against Israel and have destroyed more than 10,000 pine trees in Israel’s largest planted forest. The Yatir forest is on the edge of the Negev and Judean deserts, about seven miles northwest of Arad and 15 miles northeast of Be’er Sheva. Police chased in vain after several suspects who fled to nearby Arab villages southwest of Hebron. Forest workers for the Jewish National Fund speculated that the reasons for the arson could be anger by Arabs at the building of the nearby security fence, the refusal of soldiers to allow unauthorized Arabs from entering the Be’er Sheva area or part of terrorists’ fight against Israel.

Islam group urges forest fire jihad

Josh Gordon September 7, 2008

AUSTRALIA has been singled out as a target for "forest jihad" by a group of Islamic extremists urging Muslims to deliberately light bushfires as a weapon of terror.

US intelligence channels earlier this year identified a website calling on Muslims in Australia, the US, Europe and Russia to "start forest fires", claiming "scholars have justified chopping down and burning the infidels' forests when they do the same to our lands".

The website, posted by a group called the Al-Ikhlas Islamic Network, argues in Arabic that lighting fires is an effective form of terrorism justified in Islamic law under the "eye for an eye" doctrine.

The posting - which instructs jihadis to remember "forest jihad" in summer months - says fires cause economic damage and pollution, tie up security agencies and can take months to extinguish so that "this terror will haunt them for an extended period of time".

"Imagine if, after all the losses caused by such an event, a jihadist organisation were to claim responsibility for the forest fires," the website says. "You can hardly begin to imagine the level of fear that would take hold of people in the United States, in Europe, in Russia and in Australia."

With the nation heading into another hot, dry summer, Australian intelligence agencies are treating the possibility that bushfires could be used as a weapon of terrorism as a serious concern...

This happened back in the 1980s, and the Israelis observed that the Arabs wouldn’t be burning the trees if deep down, they really believed the land was theirs.

Same goes for the greenhouses the Koranimals destroyed in Gaza.
