Green Religious Recycling for Sukkot: This time each year The Keren Kayemet LeYisrael (KKL) prunes the trees in the forests they administer. This coincides with Sukkot and the pruning of the trees gets repurposed for ‘sechach’ the ‘roof’ of the Sukkah which must be made from trees or plants. MK Uri Maklev help organize this arrangement for free distribution of the pruning which gives people free sukkah covering and prevents people from illegally cutting branches from public forests.
Avigdor Lieberman warns that ‘Lebanon will be held responsible for any Hezbollah attacks and will suffer immensely from allowing them to attack.’ “This war won’t have the luxury of being long and protracted; it will be on the highest profile with the full might of the IDF…the moment a belligerent act is carried out from any area that sovereign state will pay the price.” These words were said at a graduation ceremony for IDF officers as a warning to Lebanon and the Hezbollah.
What was Stephen Paddock’s motivation to carry out his killing spree? ISIS took responsibility saying he joined their ranks a few months ago. The FBI and the American intelligence community say he has no known ties with ISIS. Insanity is also a possibility but he had no history of mental health problems nor did he even have any run in with the police, not even a parking ticket. He did have 23 different weapons in his hotel room and a lot of ammunition. His house had 19 more weapons, thousands of bullets, explosives and materials for making bombs. He didn’t fit any profile of any security threat whatsoever. There was no ideological background to point to his actions though his father Benjamin Paddock was a famous bank robber that was on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list before he died a few years ago.
