    As Yossi wrote : "Israel is a law breaking state". Non native European pines that have been planted repeatedly for decades because they grow quickly.. (to hide the remains of hundreds of Palestinian villages) but the trees "Refuse to cooperate". Gilad Atzmon wrote about about the so-called 'forest' of Carmel....planted to make Palestine look like an Alpine forest...but it AINT little Switzerland and those pine trees ain't indigenous --altitude, climate, prevailing winds lead to KINDLING --thus only the hardiest will survive. Israeli bull-dozers have uprooted thousands of native Olive trees. Unwillingness to learn any lessons from history..that .there must be balance ...environmentally, spiritually, economically...Israel is out of whack..out of balance...spiralling out of control and this latest raging inferno is merely symptomatic. \ I noted many 'dumps'....toxic piles of waste in many locations when I was there which were hidden away but were future catastrophes awaiting. Lack of respect for fellow human beings, lack of respect for the environment, waste of precious resources like aquifers ...irreplaceable.. So keep building those gawd awful redtile roofed pretend Calfornias, phony Switzerlands and hypocritical democratic apartheids everywhere. Or better, perhaps, y'all should just go back to eastern europe or new jersey, or wherever u came from. The lessons you rejected are the same everywhere ...either get along or die.
