NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers began harvesting Palestinian olives Monday in the northern West Bank districts of Qalqiliya and Nablus, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Doughlas, who heads the PA file on northern settlement activity, said settlers brought sheets and ladders "as though they were the owners of the land."

In Nablus, Doughlas said settlers from Yitzhar ascended groves in the Burin village, while in Qalqiliya, settlers from the illegal Ramat Gil'ad and Gil'ad outposts picked olives from the villages of Jinsafut and Far'ata.

The official described the move as a "flagrant violation of Palestinian rights."

Meanwhile, locals in the Burin village said clashes broke out between settlers and villagers as locals threw stones to prevent settlers from harvesting Palestinian crops.

Yitzhar - again. This squat keeps coming back in the news. But why the unusual language? This is not a "violation of rights", it's called robbery in English. The squatters are thieves.

Arab thieves must pay rent for squatting on Jewish Land. Not a grain of Eretz Yisroel can be owned by an arab. Ship Arabs to Arabia.

It is you who are a squatter, Kadur Yehudi. You are an illegal settler. If you get shot, it is your own fault, trespassing on land illegally land that does not belong to you.

#5 How ironic that you Ukranian, Polish, and Moldovan immigrants are coming to Palestine and demanding that Palestinians go to Arabia! Which part of WAKE UP don't you understand? You're squatting on borrowed time!

In other societies, this is considered theft. It's actually regarded as immoral.

Well, Kadur... I don't have a picture of you, but I have seen quite a few pictures of Israeli Jews. Leaving aside the historical and other evidence, one look tells you these people are not primarily descended from inhabitants of ancient Israel. The Polish Jews obviously owe more to Poland, the Iranian Jews more to Iran, the German Jews more to... The Palestinians are clearly descended from the ancient inhabitants of Palestine, though. So get off their land.

This Zionist rats must be stopped and learn them a lesson. Being Dutch, living in Thailand, I can only fight through the internet with my website, with both Dutch and English articles: http://web.me.com/aartliberty/StopZionism/

This is what happens when Third World Eastern Euro khasari losers are schlepped on amerikan tax cattle tribute to apartheid Palestine (out of some misbegotten idea fostered by amerika's xiodon alpha tribe) and allowed to maraud and pillage in this ongoing sickness called Israel.
