It is sad that, yes Arabs have cut trees planted by jewish settlers (and you know, they have been known to cut down people too!) Arabs in the area i live relate to our fields as "jewish fields from a long time ago.." since there was jewish settlement here prior to 1948..This did not give our trees any "right to exist" when a couple hundred were sawed one night. This was years ago. The lack of police action in either case is a problem..and maybe not only a lack of interest. The lack of leadership response against vandalism the "our" people perpetuate is inexcusable..
