Remember JR, the winner of the TED Prize for ‘movers and shakers’ in 2011? Well, I do. And I showed that TED talk to a number of students hoping to inspire them to proclaim themselves through art.

He was in Israel last week to support the March for Millions held last Saturday, Sept 3.

This headline greeted me this morning. First thing this morning I heard a crack of thunder, a boom that resonated but so clearly wasn’t the boom of a qassam. Then, this headline. A qassam (rocket) was fired from Gaza last night, and mortar fire hit Netivot (where I was studying) and Ofakim, the city 15 minutes from here.

Peace is felt except for the moments which remind us that war is a constant undertone.

Israel might have been able to prevent Carmel fire, reports show – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

Israel might have been able to prevent Carmel fire, reports show – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News.

Along with casting blame for arson, the facts of the inadequate resources of Israel’s firefighting agencies are being discussed throughout the country.

Click onto the link for the article which appears in this morning’s “Ha’aretz”; Ilan Lior reports:

It was well-known long before last week that the firefighting service in Israel had serious deficiencies. Nonetheless a succession of government agencies, prime ministers and ministers of the interior and of finance failed to deal with the situation. A review of state comptroller reports, recommendations from professional investigative committees, deliberations by Knesset committees and correspondence among agencies all testify to the fact everyone foresaw such a catastrophe, but very little was done to head it off.
