Tu B'shvat at Qusra


A group of Israeli and foreign activists joined Palestinians form the village of Kusra near the West Bank city of Nablus on Friday where they panted some 200 olive trees...Zakaria Isideh, a coordinator for Rabbis for Human Rights said that this event is in solidarity with the residents of Kusra, adding that the village has been a target of many Jewish settler attacks which have damaged hundreds of trees.
“We came here today in solidarity with this stricken village that faces dozens of attacks [from the Jewish settlers] without it being stopped by the Israeli army. And we put the responsibility on the Israeli army, police and government for the criminal acts that are committed by the settlers,” Isideh said.

I tried to leave this comment:

Did the Rabbis ask to see the documentation of land ownership?  After all, they would have done so if the Jews had asked them to plant at Esh-Kodesh.
