This wasn’t just arson; it was arson jihad. The recent massive fires that decimated southern Israel were the work of jihadi arsonists who sent kites and balloons fitted out with molotov cocktails across the border from Gaza into Israel. There is no method of destruction and death that these savages don’t embrace. And several years ago, ISIS announced its use of a new weapon: fire. ISIS called on the ummah (the worldwide Muslim community) to launch arson terror attacks against infidels, referring specifically to the jihad against Israel:
“The whole world witnessed the devastating fires that ravaged Jewish settlements in Palestine, destroying around 700 Jewish homes. Irrespective of the motive, this deliberate act of destruction demonstrated the lethality of such an effortless operation. The attacks likewise demonstrate that with some simple and readily accessible materials (i.e. flammables), one can easily terrorize an entire nation. This is a quick option for anyone intending to join the just terror campaign.”
In an issue of ISIS’s online magazine, Rumiyah, in an article titled “Just Terror Tactics” under the category “arson attacks,” ISIS called on jihadis to firebomb places where infidels gather.
“Report: Arab set Jerusalem building on fire,” Arutz Sheva, July 27, 2018:
Investigations of a fire which broke out in a Jerusalem motel Thursday night showed that the cause of the blaze was arson.
After it was clear that arson had caused the fire, Israel Police began searching the area, blocking the center of the city.
They later found and arrested an Arab-Israeli suspect from one of Jerusalem’s Arab neighborhoods….
The fire injured eight people, including a man, woman, their 14-year-old daughter, and their 9-year-old son. The four, who suffered from smoke inhalation and burns, were taken to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Hospital, with the father’s condition deemed very serious and the others’ serious.
A fifth victim was taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem and treated for shock. Three others were treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics.
