Settlers cut down 1,150 olive trees in Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Thursday cut down 1,150 olive trees in Palestinian groves near Nablus, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Residents of Itamar settlement used chainsaws to cut down the trees north of Awarta, said Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank.

The trees belonged to 25 Palestinian families and were planted in a 600-dunum grove, Daghlas said.

  1. The Palestinian's only crime is that they happen to be non-Jews owning lands in the so called promised land. That is according to religious Jews a sin and therefore the Palestinians must be eradicated to please Yehwah. The problem is Palestinians don’t even know where exactly did Yehwah draw the border. If this is a divine gift, the borders have to be exact, am I wrong here?
