Spectacular Holy Land Rainbow

Unfortunately, nothing about the upcoming elections in Israel can be looked at as a light of hope, that is if peace is what you are hoping for. Therefore we are guessing the spectacular rainbow that showed up outside the main CultCase headquarters at Kfar Netter about three hours ago must be related to the newly announced president of The United States of America. We just can't see any other reason why we got so lucky to have it.

For those of you who know but would like to refresh their memory according to Wikipedia a rainbow is:
"An optical and meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the Sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere. They take the form of a multicolored arc, with red on the outer part of the arch and violet on the inner section of the arch."

Technically the colors of the rainbow are absolutely not as distinct as we see them but instead span a continuous spectrum. Traditionally, however, and as is illustrated in the below detail, the sequence can be "quantized" as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Sometimes (not in this case) rainbows are caused by non-rain water such as mist, spray, and dew.
