A Palestinian farmer says Israeli settlers have destroyed nearly 130 olive trees in the occupied West Bank.

Yasser Fukha said on Saturday that he saw a group of residents from a nearby Israeli settlement of Shavei Shomron driving near the farm in the village of Deir Sharaf and later found trees uprooted and damaged.

It came as the Palestinian farmers are set to start the 40-day harvest of olive, which is regarded as the backbone of the Palestinian economy.

Palestinians also consider the crop as a symbol of their connection to their occupied land.

Israeli settlers, mostly armed, regularly attack Palestinian villages and farms and set fire to their mosques, olive groves and other properties in the West Bank under the so-called “price tag” policy. However, the Tel Aviv regime rarely detains the assailants.

The extremists say the “price tag” attacks are carried out against any Israeli policy “to reduce the presence of settlers and settlements on the occupied Palestinian land in the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem).”

More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds in 1967.

The United Nations and most countries regard the Israeli settlements as illegal because the territories were captured by Israel in a war in 1967 and are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbid construction on occupied lands.

    These so-called “Israelis” are no more the Israelite people of God than my dogs. They have no conscience and no regard for Torah:

    Deuteronomy 20: 19 When thou shalt besiege a city a long time, in making war against it to take it, thou shalt not destroy the trees thereof by forcing an axe against them: for thou mayest eat of them, and thou shalt not cut them down (for the tree of the field is man’s life) to employ them in the siege: 20 Only the trees which thou knowest that they be not trees for meat, thou shalt destroy and cut them down; and thou shalt build bulwarks against the city that maketh war with thee, until it be subdued.

    Then comes the fact that there is no “cause” for them to “wage war” against the Palestinians in the first place. THEY ARE LAWLESS – doing the bidding of the international Zionist bankers.

    But the most heart-breaking thing is that their SELF-DESTRUCTIVE behavior always manifests at the peril of innocent people.

  3.

    An olive tree needs 100 years to grow before it starts bearing fruit. To kill them is so barbaric and shows the lowness of those committing such crimes.
