HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Settlers attacked agricultural fields in Hebron-district village Beit Ummar late Saturday, a local official said.

Dozens of settlers stormed agricultural fields and uprooted olive and fruit trees, local committee against the wall official Muhammad Ayyad Awad said.

The land belongs to Hammad Abdul-Hamid Sleibi.

The settlers reportedly came from Bat Ayin settlement, north of Beit Ummar, and also sprayed racist slogans in the village.

"Death to Arabs" and "Kahane was right", in reference to the founder of a far-right anti-Arab political party, were found on village property, Awad said.

Whilst I have no love for the hatred sprouted by the supporters of the Palestinian Arabs, I equally have no love for what the people in the outposts in Judea and Samaria do either. Neither do the Israeli citizens or the Government

Shirlee - if you, the Israeli citizens and the Government have no love for what the squatters in the West Bank do to the Palestinians, why don't you all get your heads out of the sand and do something about it?

Mel, you truly are a quite something. Your hatred and foul mouth serve you no good. I bet you haven't been there and seen what it's like. If you did you would see how wrong you are and the lies you have been fed. Carine at the moment the Israel government is demolishing houses in the outposts. The problem with you people is that you don't bother reading the true facts, only the lies you have been fed. It is quite sad.

#4 Shirlee - No, what they're doing is making a token gesture to appease a few people. At the moment the Israeli government is stalling, frantically looking at ways to legalise illegal outposts and settlements, even going against the Supreme Court. The problem is, you've been brainwashed for decades.

It's a shame you people don't go and see for yourselves. You'd get the true picture. I know i did and I know of many people who totally changed their points of view after having visited.

Imagine the headlines if Abdul-Hamid Sleibi or other farmers had done anything like this.

Been where? Shirlee has been in "Judea and Samaria", not in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. And sha hasn't read the news on how the Israeli government obstructs Israeli High Court decisions to evacuate outposts. There are 90 outposts that are recognised as illegal under Israeli law, if the Israeli government dislikes them so much as she claims, why are they there? Why are their numbers increasing, and why are so many "upgraded" to legal (Israeli legal) status?

Shirlie is right, the world has been mislead by the lies they see on TV but reality is far from it. The Palestinian have put up with alot from occupation which goes back a long way to the days of the Ottoman Empier. Now israel demolish people's home to bring Jewish settlers and refugees from all over the world under the Jew hat. It's sas and sadest that no one in the western world knows exactly wants happening.
