Sorry wingnuts. It wasn’t terrorism. The “mooslims” weren’t trying to torch Israel. Instead it was a 14 year old boy that accidentally started the fire:
A 14-year-old boy from the Carmel region admitted Monday to throwing a piece of burning coal into the forest and causing what later became the largest and most devastating forest fire in Israel's history.
Police arrested the teen early on Monday, and he admitted during his interrogation to smoking a Hookah pipe in the forest, and later disposing the burning piece of coal into an open area in the woods, which caused a fire to erupt.
The teen said that he was so astounded at what had happened that he ran back to school and didn’t report the incident to anyone.
He will be brought before the Haifa Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for deliberations on extending his remand.
