I also want to put out the fire, but it burns within us. I am trying to extinguish it, but it insists on burning.
And then they preach to us that this is not the time for fanning the flames, that we should focus on putting them out and saving lives. Jews, do not anger your neighbors too much, they might get upset. Accept the ruling from above. On social media and in official places, they are speaking about the "muezzin bill" that caused the fire. Earlier, they said that the Temple Mount caused the stabbing attacks, and that the occupation and the oppression and a variety of other reasons left our neighbors with no choice but to set out on a campaign of killing and destruction. As early as 1963, writer A. B. Yehoshua drafted this rule in his story, ''Facing the Forests.'' The forest was burned to expose the "Zionist crimes." For a moment, I was reminded of the riots in Paris in 2006; there too, they crucified anyone who dared criticize the appetite for destruction of Muslim Parisians. They are the only downtrodden people in the world. Sure.
Our land is burning not just because of accidents (and some of the fires were indeed caused by negligence), but also because of the behavior of arsonists who have adopted the wrongful belief: "Let it be neither ours nor yours."
We've had enough of your sweet talk, Joint Arab List Chairman Ayman Odeh. Even now, you continue to say that you are the original natives of this land, and so there is no chance that Arabs would set fire to the country: "The Carmel [Forest] is ours, this is my homeland."
What we see in between the lines of your comments is that we are only guests here. "This is my place; this is my forest; I am the one who is hurt here, not you." Like the thorn bush in the parable of Yotam, you tried to calm things down, but instead added thorns to the fire. Open a Bible and you will find the Carmel Forest starring. Some 1,500 years before the Muslim occupation arrived, it was already the Jewish homeland.
Whether by water, forest fires, the sword of the stabbing attackers; whether by strangulation or stoning or varying, strange terrorist attacks -- we have come to know all of the methods since returning home to Zion. In the Judgment of Solomon, the king ordered the baby be cut in two and shared between the fighting women. Let us remember the words of the fake mother: "Let him be neither mine nor yours, but divide him" (1 Kings 3:26).
But we are not only well-versed in disasters; we know well how to rise from the ashes and from the dust. They burn and we build, that is, after all, the fixed historical contract. Haifa and the Carmel Forest will be rehabilitated; the same is true for Nataf in the Jerusalem Hills and for Talmon in the Judean Hills, as well as for other places. The good land will flourish once again, despite those who rise up against it.
