Nablus – Ma’an – Dozens of chainsaw-wielding Israeli settlers cut down more than 150 olive trees in to the northern West Bank village of Burin, south of Nablus on Monday.The assault came a few days before Palestinian farmers throughout the country begin harvesting their olives.According to Ghassan Daghlas, the Palestinian official in charge of monitoring settlement activity in the northern West Bank, dozens of Israelis from the settlement Yitzhar raided fields in the area of Khallat Siwar between the villages of Huwwara and Burin and cut down more than 150 olive trees using chainsaws. Daghlas labeled the settlers’ attack as “criminal act” calling on human right groups to take action to stop Israeli settlers’ assaults against the Palestinians and their property.
" Gaza: the new Warsaw Ghetto. Israel: the new Nazis "
Now Dice, here is what I am thinking,,, maybe the best thing for the world is for Israel and Iran to both become parking lots. I don't mind paying $6.00 for a gallon of gas if it means the end of this nonsense in the middle east,,, someone remind me why Israel is our friend when they are just as dirty and guilty of crimes like the rest of them, but like I said, that's what I'm thinking
An open message to the God's Chosen People,
"When you shall besiege a city a long time, and wage war to capture it, you shall not destroy its trees by wielding an ax against fruit trees… Only the trees which you know are not trees for food, you may destroy..." (Deut. 20:19-20) Olives are food and Jews are bound to follow the Torah.
