Representing Israel with honour

Most of us would have seen headlines and stories such as this one from the Jerusalem Post. The fire fighting crew truly does “represent Israel with honor”.

A team of 51 Israeli firefighters arrived in Greece on Monday morning, heading to historic Ancient Olympia to help local crews in the battle to control massive wildfires that have killed more than 60 people.

With local firefighting crews struggling to get the dozens of fires under control, the head of the Israeli delegation was quoted as saying that the team was ready to “represent Israel with honor” in helping a regional neighbor in its hour of need.

While the more than four dozen firefighters – most of them cadets – arrived in Greece on Monday, an Israeli medical team was wrapping up a week of work in Peru, following the earthquake on August 15 that left over 500 dead and over 1,000 injured.
