The new Palestinian terror: ARSON


Last week, an Israeli paper finally referred to the new kind of Palestinian terror against Israelis: Arson. 

During the Israeli summer months of May, June, July, August and September, you won't find any rain. Instead the weather is unbelievable hot and dry. Anyone throwing away a cigarette bud can cause a catastrophe. In fact there are radio and TV spots asking the public to watch out and avoid causing any fire in open spaces such as forests or fields. 

It has been going on for a while now that the Israeli fire department hardly finds any time to breathe. The guys are hurrying from one fire to the next and most of those fires were caused on purpose. By Palestinians. Almost all of those fires take place close to Jewish buildings. Last week there was another huge fire between Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital and Moshav Even Sapir. The day before yesterday, there was another fire right in front of my windows. Nearby living Palestinians and kindled another fire in the woods and the fire department arrived with two vehicles. 

About a month ago, me and a friend were witnessing some Palestinian youths kindling a fire in the woods across the building where I live. The lit the fire and ran away. It is well known that most fires in Israel were caused by Palestinians. Just for fun in order to upset the Jews or even in order to kill. I am sure that people abroad have not clue about what is going on here, as your local media stations definitely won't report about Palestinian arson.

    But do we have any proof that all the last acts of arson were made by Palestinian?

    This is a problem sometimes. The incident happening in my neighbourhood was obvious, as a friend of mine and me witnessed it. Furthermore, the neighbours claimed that they have witnessed plenty of those incidents.

    Otherwise I suppose that there is proof but, as our government decided not to upset the Palestinian Abu Mazen government, the police and most of the media keep quiet.
