It's hard to understand how - after an episode of stone throwing resulting in a road accident with deaths - justice could be made by uprooting dozens of olive trees. The person who allegedly threw the stone should be tracked and persecuted. You cannot collectively punish others for an individual crime. What do they or the trees have to do with the acts of an individual or a group? And such an act of vengeance - destroying the trees - is particularly despicable when we consider that it was perpetrated by people who are illegal occupiers of the land.
