Here is a new al Jazeera report of another instance of Israeli settlers destroying fields of olive trees. It is not an unusual case. Most Palestinians are struggling financially these days, and many families from the villages are dependent on the produce of their land. Can you imagine waking up one morning and seeing that your investment of time, effort and money, which you had been depending on to support your family, was destroyed? And it was done deliberately, and you have no recourse against the people who did it?
Here is an excellent episode of Witness on al Jazeera from a year ago.
In addition to the acts of settlers, many many trees have been uprooted and stolen to build the wall.
