HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers uprooted over 40 olive trees in the south Hebron hills late Sunday, a local official said.

Ratib al-Jabour, coordinator of the popular committee against the wall and settlements, said that settlers from Maon destroyed olive trees in the neighboring village of al-Tuwani.

The trees belong to the al-Rabai family.

Settlers routinely attack Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank with impunity.

Annual figures compiled by Israeli rights group Yesh Din have repeatedly shown that nine out of 10 police investigations about settler crimes fail to lead to a prosecution.

It's another major crime against the Palestinians that demands great punishment for the Israelite terrorists. I highly commend MNA in reporting these olive tree and other destructive events so I can do what I can to keep up the pressure on those I know can stop them (as well as take other steps to help those who can confront these fanatics who only understand talking from a gun, not a mouth). I repeat from before: Had I been there, I would have "spoken" loudly ... I would have shot them.

'Settlers uproot over 40 olive trees in south Hebron hills.' Settlers pose a problem similar in some respects to that posed by feral pigs.

The Settlers are a disgrace to Ha Am Israel. And the Settlers are feral pigs. I pray for the day when we have peace. Two states, Palestine and Israel,side by side, living in Peace with Justice for all.

Jewish terror cells are funded indirectly by Israel and NGOs world wide. Compensation to them, their leaders, and the staging areas from which they act should be sanctioned. This is why the BDS movement is such a worthy cause.

Such bad actors are a disgrace to Israel and should be exiled - both from the territories and from Israel proper.

The picture shows a man without a mustache and a henna beard. That is all you need to know about these allegations.

Jews are hunkered down with a common mentality. Whether Tzipi Livni, at the classy end, conniving to screw the Palestinians in "talks" or bottom-feeders like these feral whackos destroying trees, or indeed our brother Yehuda (#1) calling for kindness towards his Arab neighbours (to the point of killing offenders) before their final deportation to the East, they share a common conviction: that something which clearly belongs to someone else and will cause untold misery if taken away, against all

(contd.) commonsense and decency, belongs to THEM...to the Jews, and that they'll work assiduously, in a unified effort, though in disparate "theatres" (negotiating table, Hebron frontier, Ma'an comments) to make it happen. (Our brother yochanan41, #3, also expresses noble sentiments, but despite the settlers being, in his view, "feral pigs" and "a disgrace to Ham Am Israel", I bet in his rosy vision of "two states, Palestine and Israel,side by side, living in Peace with Justice for all",

(contd.) the Aqsa, East Jerusalem and the big settlements ALL wind up in Israel.)

The Extremists who are uprooting the Olive tree, are in reality uprooting the foundations of the good work done by millions of peaceful members of the Jewish faith. Today they are uprooting Olive trees which are being tendered by the Palestinians , for sure tomorrow they will be uprooting the foundations of civil society in Israel. These self righteous extremists are impacting the Palestinians today, for sure tomorrow they will go after civil society in Israel and taint the star of David.
