URGENT ! Israel Needs Your Prayers Now !

Please pray for the dead, the injured and their families. We need a miracle to bring an end to this disaster, the largest and deadliest since Israel's founding in 1948. Whether or not you are part of a prayer chain, Please, Pray for Israel Today!

A huge forest fire in Carmel has killed about 42 people on Thursday,  December 2nd. More than 15,000 people have been evacuated from towns and villages as the fires continue to blaze out of control.
Most of the dead are IPS cadets,  the majority of them young Druze in their 20's. They were being transported  by bus after assisting in the evacuation of 500 prisoners (mainly arab) in the Damon Prison. At  some point the fire reached a great speed--covering a mile in five minutes, according to a firefighting officer--catching the bus in the flames with no chance of escape. 

Police officers in a separate vehicle were also trapped by the flames. Two of them are missing, and the Commander of the Haifa Police, Lt-Col. Ahuva Tomer, is in serious condition after suffering burns all over her body. Doctors at Rambam Hospital in Haifa are fighting for her life.

Deputy Minister Ayoub Kara, a resident of Usfiyeh, spoke to a news Channel and said he has received information that the fire was a terror act. The fire  was  reported to have spread from three locations simultaneously--making arson likely. 

One observer said "It was amazing--within 30 minutes almost half the forest was in flames".Israeli firefighters said it was the biggest forest fire in the country’s history, with some 7,000 acres (2,800 hectares) of land destroyed.

So far this year numerous large fires, many set by arabs, have depleted Israel's reserves of fire-fighting chemicals, and the remaining supply will be exhausted by Friday morning. Israeli planes are on the way to France for more supplies. In addition, Seven foreign aircraft are making their way to Israel: four from Greece, two from Azerbaijan and one from Cyprus. In addition, Four aircraft are expected from France, two or three from Russia, and two from Spain.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said: "I shall declare a national day of mourning but right now we haven't got the time to mourn and get into inquiries"

He flew over the scene by helicopter and in a briefing, told reporters "People have showed tremendous strength of spirit, divine heroism, and sacrificed themselves to save others. I want to say to the families that are discovering their own personal disasters, we support you and love you. To our Druze brothers--I know you suffered a major blow. "These were astonishing people who displayed great courage."

And Now, Here is the Kicker:
Radio Haifa reported that Arabs have been Dancing in the Streets of Furadis, just south of Haifa, in Celebration of the Deadly Fire ! While no other country in the middle east--to this very day--will give citizenship or any basic rights to "Palestinian Arabs", Israel has--these people vote, have access to education and medical care like every Israeli--and they dance in the streets when disaster strikes the country that feeds them. Any wonder Israel does not believe we have a partner for peace?

Now, more than ever we ask you to contact everyone you know to join us in  prayer,  asking the God of all Creation to show mercy on his suffering children. Israel needs you. Thanks from all of us to all of you.
