RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers early Sunday raided private Palestinian land near Ramallah and uprooted hundreds of newly planted olive trees, locals told Ma'an.

Locals said that dozens of settlers raided fields in the village of Sinjil north of Ramallah and uprooted and stole 800 olive saplings.

The saplings had been planted days earlier after settlers uprooted olive trees in the same area on Jan. 22.

Those trees were planted in coordination with a project funded by the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Israeli authorities rarely investigate violent crimes carried out by settlers against Palestinian communities.

Since 1967, approximately 800,000 olive trees have been uprooted in the occupied West Bank, according to a joint report by the Palestinian Authority and the Applied Research Institute - Jerusalem.

The olive industry supports the livelihoods of roughly 80,000 families in the occupied West Bank.

And under US tax code , trees donated to JNF are TAX DEDUCTABLE. Go figure.

Hasbi-Allahu wa Ni'ma Al-Wakil, this expression, mentioned in the Qur'an (3: 173), is said when a Muslim is in difficulty or under a threat, to seek Divine help and support.

Why in heaven's name does the West allow this to continue? It makes me ashamed that my country does not speak out against such terrorism, because that is what it is: terrorism, plain and simple. And the settlers always get away with it. Disgusting, vile people, these "chosen ones."

Where are those "wonderful" IDF soldiers? They turn a blind eye everytime to the inhumanity to the violence and destruction wrought by some of the settlers to the Palestinians. Shameful that every country, including mine, also turns a blind eye.
