Jewish Fields and Crops Burned

First, there were stories about Jews uprooting Arab olive trees.

As I wrote there, I couldn't get any information more than the Arab announcement. No confirmation. Have you seen any evidence of their tale? We have a name, Abdelhameed Muhsen, but I don't have his phone number.

But I was at Achiyah this morning. And do you know what I saw? I saw lots of Jewish land burnt. Saplings destroyed. In between Achiyah and Esh Kodesh.

The photographic evidence:

a) looking north-east from Achiyah, along the ridge is Jaloud. There's the last Jewish house (at present) in the lower-left corner and the Arab village a few hundred meters on. And in the lower right-hand corner, already you can see the remnants of the third (!) fire in the past 8 days set by Arabs.

b) the burned area there at the bottom of the slope:

c) a close-up of the charred remnants:

d) to the east, the extent of the damage:

e) to the north-east and on the ridge is Kuzra, an Arab village, and center below, more damaged area:

f) Esh-Kodesh on the horizon and the end of the blackened wadi:

Did you hear or see of this series of incidents?

And now over at INN.

This PLO tactic goes back to at least 1994 when arafat started having fires set shortly after taking over in Gaza and Jericho.
I remember seeing the smoke and the smell of burning wood and vegetation coming towards us in Jerusalem eastwards from the Jerusalem Corridor in that summer.

Yep - they "say" they "love the land" but in truth, they want to destroy it... along with the people who live on it and from it, including their own people...

Red Fox the late american comedian used to say
"G-d forgive them they don't know what they are doing because they are a bunch of dummies."
They have that shmatteh wrapped around their head too tightly which cuts off the blood to their brain rendering them senseless, on top of which, they think Abraham kicked the wrong kid out of the tent 5000 years ago and they still haven't gotten over it.
