Zionist environmentalism

"In addition to the 6,000 that have already been uprooted, hundreds of other trees are slated for uprooting.The new path does not allow for access gates, meaning farmers will be completely cut off from their lands. The settlement of Zufim is slated to swallow much of the annexed land.The construction of infrastructure for the new part of the settlement called "North Zufim" has already begun. Construction of an electricity network has started and the creation of housing units is imminent.

As a result of this land grab, the 85% of the people of Jayyous who made their living as farmers have largely been made unemployed, and most of those who were still able to maintain their livelihoods will now join the jobless ranks." (Thanks Marcy)
