An immigrant from the United States who came to Israel a year ago set himself ablaze on Wednesday in the yard of Ulpan Etzion, a Hebrew language school for olim in the Bakaa neighborhood of Jerusalem.(via Chayyei Sarah)
...said he did it to protest Israel's withdrawal two weeks ago from the Gaza strip.
...came to the ulpan's entrance carrying a prayer book and wearing tefilin on his forehead and arm, doused himself in a flammable liquid and set himself aflame.
The guard on duty at the time put out the flames and called an ambulance.
