Israel sending trees to reforest ancient Olympus

From AFP:

Israel to Send 10,000 Trees to Reforest Ancient Olympia in Greece

The Greek Olympic Committee said Wednesday it had accepted an offer from Israel for experts and 10,000 trees to help repair damage caused by fires on Olympia, the birthplace of the ancient Olympic Games.

Considering political, not to mention religious and historic (ya' know... Hanukkah, etc) Israel-Greek relations, this is interesting news.

The most recent backstory is here.

The MUCH earlier one is here.
