Stop blaming Eli Yishai, or anyone, for that matter except those who may have started this fire. We should be grateful for the heroic work done by those on the front lines, the firefighters, the police, the rescue workers, those manning the evacuation centers, the volunteers, the foreign help we received -- this was a massive and horrendous event, an accident of major proportions; the PM acted quickly to get proper help and there's just no need for all this looking to blame someone. OK, it was a lack of fire fighting preparedness -- we've never had anything like this before; who could have foreseen it? Let's start to pull together as a country and a people and be more appreciative of all that was done. So many people risked their lives; Stop the shoulda, woulda, coulda -- it's tearing at the fabric of this society. I wish someone would fly over with a plane load of flower seeds so the forest will bloom in the spring and we can have a little regeneration among us!!
