Israel: Massive Fires Engulf Jerusalem Following 200 Arson Attacks In Past 2 Weeks
Could there be a Colorado connection? I can’t help but to wonder if the latest fires in Colorado, one of the worst in state history and already responsible for multiple deaths and the destruction of hundreds of homes, was deliberately set.

By Brian Blum, Israelity – “Who does this kind of thing? I just don’t get it. Setting fires on purpose.
I was incredibly dismayed to read in yesterday’s Jerusalem Post that there were more than 200 arson attacks in the Jerusalem area in the last two weeks, and that in the past month and a half, there have been some 2,000 fires started due to arson.
