    How does the guy recording it not say a word? I think I would have reacted verbally.

    Allegedly Ammonium Nitrate. Almost 3000 pounds.

    Israel may have sabotaged a warehouse full of it by using fuel oil or Aluminum powder.

    ANFO is used in quarry operations and Ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder is Tannerite.

    ANFO was what was used on the Alfred P. Murrah bldg. in Oklahoma City.

    Just a mixture of either set off could cause a massive explosion. Sort of like a detonator.

    Israel had been getting newly rocketed from the Gaza strip and perhaps supplied from Lebanon.

    There was a fire that set it off.

    I highly doubt Israel was involved. Just plain old human incompetence.
