Correction

In my recent post "Hanukkah Fires" I failed to note all of the countries that came to Israel's aid in fighting the Carmel forest fires.  Here is a more complete list of countries:
Azerbaijan
Bulgaria
Croatia
Cyprus
Egypt
France
Germany
Greece
Holland
Italy
Jordan
Palestinian Authority
(The PA is of course not a country, but perhaps the most significant of my prior omissions.  The Palestinian Authority sent three fire engines and 21 firefighters.)
Russia
Spain
Switzerland
Turkey
United Kingdom
United States
This is an extraordinary list, especially given the number of Muslim and Arab countries who participated.  Turkey for instance sent two planes
