Extremists Kill Olive Trees
In a recent article in the Guardian, it was reported that, according to the UN, over 870 olive trees were vandalised in the first week of harvest this month. Over 450 were damaged within a period a seven days.
Israeli settlers are destroying the olive trees which are the main source of income for many Palestinians. Not only are they destroying the olive trees, but they also are responsible for attacking Palestinian farmers.
The Guardian reports, “Hundreds of olive trees have been uprooted, burned or cut down by extremist settlers since the annual harvest got under way in the West Bank this month, prompting calls for the Israeli authorities to protect Palestinian farmers and their property.”
It is very encouraging to see the Guardian using the word “extremists” when talking about the illegal Zionist settlers. It shows that the truth is being revealed slowly about the Zionist State, and more importantly it shows that the western media are finally hearing our voice. However, this is only a small step in the right direction, we need to keep on airing the truth, so that the mainstream media portray the truth about the conflict.
It is our duty to help our brothers and sisters in Palestine. We should buy Palestinian products where possible and boycott products from the Zionist racist state as much we can. We need to actively look for alternatives and ask ourselves whether we really need to buy what can be classified as stolen goods. The land of the Zionist state has been stolen from the Palestinians and therefore anything produced in that land which is occupied can be classified as stolen.
We have seen from history that boycotting goods from a certain state does make a difference. The boycott against the apartheid state of South Africa did indeed work and it was instrumental in ending the apartheid state.
Many people and companies are boycotting the Zionist state, so why aren’t you?
