BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Friday destroyed over 300 newly planted grape vines in al-Khader village south of Bethlehem, locals said.

Landowner Mohammad Ibrahim Sbeih told Ma'an that he saw settlers from the illegal Sde Boaz settlement on his land in the al-Shub area.

Coordinator for the local resistance committee Ahmad Salah told Ma'an that the settlers vandalized 18 dunams (four acres) of land.

Israeli forces arrived in the area and detained Sbeih and his brothers for several hours, he said.

The Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committee has said it will provide compensation for the attack and plant new trees, Salah added.

In 2013, there were 399 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

One wonders what the world would be saying if a Palestinian majority was lording it over a Jewish minority in this fashion. Would such anti-semitic bestiality be tolerated? Can you see it being passed over in polite silence?

To Maureen #2: 'What is it about so called "Jewish settlers" who destroy agriculture life sustaining crops?' I'm telling you -- 'evil' is a useful and relevant concept here. At the end of the day, Zionism is evil, and its practitioners are as well. Recognize that, and everything starts to become predictable and make sense.
