The Olive Grove War Re-Ignites
How do you steal a Palestinian's land? It usually begins by destroying his olive groves. Destroy his livelihood and then you can claim the land unoccupied and build a settlement.
It's the olive harvest on the West Bank and, true to form, Israeli settlers with the help of the Israeli Army are on the attack.
The Palestinians are pleading for the international community to send observers to their lands, hoping this will force the Army to restrain the settlers' land grab. Maybe Ottawa could do the right thing for a change. Nah, forget it.
