BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers uprooted hundreds of olive trees and saplings in al-Khader village south of Bethlehem early Thursday morning, activists said.

Ahmad Salah, the coordinator of popular committee against settlements and the wall in al-Khader, told Ma’an that a group of settlers from Nevi Daniel were behind the incident.

The land is owned by Ahmad Nabhan Mousa, and the settlers uprooted about 200 olive trees planted a year ago by the local YMCA. They also sprayed graffiti saying “Stone uprising”.

Salah noted that the attack came soon after Israel's approval to allow settlers into the village. Salah said that the committee would re-plant the trees and the saplings.

There needs to be a 'price tag.' Catch a few of these vandals. If they vanish without explanation, so much the better.

I wonder if this is one of the "projects" that B'nai B'rith sends Canadian youth on.

"Stone uprising"? Really? Are the settlers waking and baking?

There is really a YMCA (Young Mens Club of America) in Israel? Sounds like propaganda to me.

#7 When they're talking about the "local YMCA" in Bethlehem planting trees, that's an indication to you that it is a YMCA in Palestine, not Israel. Rest assured though, that they're everywhere. There's also one in East Jerusalem, and one in Ramallah too.
