NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Dozens of settlers set fire to Palestinian agricultural fields east of Nablus on Wednesday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that a mob of settlers raided agricultural fields in the villages of Azmut and Deir al-Hatab and set fire to olive groves.

Dozens of olive trees were destroyed and several acres of land torched, Daghlas said.

The settlers came down from the neighboring Elon Moreh settlement.

Settlers routinely attack Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank with impunity, with the Nablus district subject to a particularly high number of settler attacks.

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.

Where are the PA security forces? Are they only good for beating up Palestinian protesters?

Again, as I've said in MNA's related article on Israelite terrorism ["Settlers uproot over 40 olive trees in south Hebron hills" (www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=628148)], one can only talk to these Israelite terrorists with guns ... and again, had I been there, I would have surely shot them. I've tried to communicate to our appropriate Knesset (legislative) committees and IDF the need to enforce peace and stop them ... all to no avail (although I did have some "success" (cont.)

from a while back). The honest truth is the IDF is basically afraid (and, in many cases, outright against) intervening and stopping them and the Israelite criminals know this. It's up to Israelites like myself to take further action doing all we can to stop these heinous fanatics ... I'm ashamed to say I'm ashamed of the IDF. They're a total disgrace and its W. Bank civil and military administration sucks (and they know it).
