Someone should alert Philip Gordon – the US Middle East Czar who was so adamant in his condemnation of those pesky Jewish settlers out to ruin Arab olive trees, he should express at least the same amount of rage at what has taken place today in the Eretz HaTzvi farm, between the towns of Shiloh and Eli.

According to a report by the Tazpit news agency, Jewish farmers who arrived Thursday at the olive grove belonging to Eretz HaTzvi, discovered that Arab thugs had stolen bushels of olives and broke off tree branches. The damage is estimated in tens of thousands of dollars.

An IDF force is searching the area for the culprits.

Yair Eldar, the manager at Eretz HaTzvi, told Tazpit: “I arrived at the grove a short while ago, and from the highway I recognized the telltale sign of Arab fruit thieves – Jute sacks that were spread on the ground. Walking around the grove I identified many broken branches and a large amount of olives that fell out of the thieves’ sacks.”

Eldar estimated that about 40 trees have been damaged.

  1. God forbid. Few years are I planted two trees through Morris Cerullo World Evangelism. I AM PRAYING.

  2. They must go! Arabs have shown themselves to be a pestilence upon the land, any land…truly a band of thieves, beggars and fools all of whom submit to the old pedophile prophet of islam! Let them be gone to their own lands, lands not gained by conquest of others who knew and despised them for what they are…an evil horde…worse than locust! And that is the kindest that we can do with them.

  3. Gil Gilman says:

    You won't hear any condemnation, because Gordon like others of his ilk has a mind set through which everything is filtered. I liken it to hardening of the arteries. There is not enough blood flow to that vital organ for it to function both logically and factually. Logic is only as good a tool as the material upon which it operates. I will, thus, have to condemn these lying, thieving, little termites myself. It is not enough for you to attack women and children, now this, something that is even more unable to defend itself.

  4. WHAT ELSE DO YOU EXPECT FROM THEM, THOSE ARABS RICH OF 56 ARABO MUSLIM COUNTRIES 600 TIMES THE ENTIRE SIZE OF ISRAËL
    DO YOU EXPECT FROM THOSES THIEVES ETHICS? MA PIT-OM! RESPECT OF OWNERSHIP? MA PIT-OM! RESPECT OF LIVES, JEWISJ, NON-JEWISH, ISRAËLI, NON-ISRAËLI, ANIMAL, PLANET? MA PIT-OM! TRUTH? MA PIT-OM! BECAUSE THEY ARE BORN THIEVES, LYIERS, MURDERERS, AND THEY HAVE STOLEN FIRST OUR MORIA MOUNT, TO RENAME IT "THE TEMPLE MOUNT" THEN OUR RELIGIONRELIGION, THEN OUR JERUSALEM, THEN OUR LAND, THEN OUR LIVES AND THEY HAVE STOLEN ALSO THE BRAINS AND THE ETHICS OF A LOT OF THE PEOPLE OF THE"FREE" WORLD! AND THAT IS, VERY UNFORTUNATELY, FOR ONLY GOD KNOWS WHEN!

  5. Miriam Adams says:

    In 2012, UN-OCHA reported that 7,500 olive trees were destroyed between January and mid-October. Attacks by settlers have increased by 39% from the year 2010 to 2011 and by 315% from 2007 – 2011. this doesn't include the tens of thousands of trees bulldozed by IDF in WB and Gaza to enable military actions against this large concentration camp.. over the past few 10 yrs and more.

  6. Use belgian shepherd malinois dogs and you will see if this arabs will try to steal, they will run away, they are scared for dogs.
