Burning life

"A group of extremist settlers burnt on Monday hundreds of acres planted with olive trees, wheat and barley near the Palestinian villages of Burin, Aseera, Tal and and Sorra south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Ali Eid, head of the Burin village council, told the Maan News Agency that the fires consumed olives trees, and large areas planted with wheat and barley.

Also, local sources in Jeet and Far’ata villages, near the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, stated that the settlers set ablaze hundreds of acres planted with wheat.

The sources added that Israeli soldiers did not attempt to stop the settlers and instead protected them and barred Palestinian fire trucks from reaching the burnt lands. "

I am not hearing enough Jews and Israeli's speaking out, condemning this kind of behavior.
