The Greek government suspects arsonists since there is a law which forbids new commercial property in forested areas. If the forests were removed, by fire for instance, then the area can be commercially renovated. The Greek government wants to try these people as terrorists.
The loss of life is indeed horrific (about 56 people) as well as the amount of people who have been displaced and lost their homes. I am also upset that the many of ancient sites which have been excavated are at risk from these greedy jerks! Olympia, fortunately, the birthplace of the Olympic Games, was just barely spared from the ravages of the fires.
Lord, have mercy!
