Nablus - Ma'an - The Union of Agricultural Work Committees in the northern West Bank village of Aqraba organized a large march Thursday toward lands confiscated by Israeli settlements.

The march, organized under the Right to Live banner, was supported by Norwegian People's Aid and attended by members of the UAWC from villages across the Nablus region, who showed support and solidarity with the Aqraba farmers.

Protesters were angry over an incident that occurred the week before that saw settlers from the nearby Itamar settlement confront farmers from the village who were tending their lands.

Organizers said the march, which saw protesters return to the site of the incident en masse, was a demonstration against intimidation and a demand to allow Palestinian farmers access to their lands.

The uprooted european jewish caste is jealous. They to want to feel the connection to the earth. The difference between palestinians and israelis is that the pals have been sowing and plowing for centuries in the area, in times when them jews where merchants and rentiers in Europe. The question is why doesn't the jews just join the palestinians in their harvest? They don't need to confiscate land, they can come as friends instead..
