Samaria Residents to Media: Don't Join Incitement


The Shomron Residents' Council called on the media, Friday, not to cooperate with what it called "the false propaganda of extreme left-wing organizations that are flooding journalists and media outlets with false reports of Jews in Judea and Samaria damaging Arab olive trees." The council said that for all the hype about such actions, including the equipping of Arabs with cameras, no charges have been filed against Jews for intentionally damaging olive trees. It also noted evidence of Arab arson and vandalism against Jewish farmers that received no media coverage.

The council invited people or groups wanting to help with the Jewish olive harvest to contact it through its website or facebook page.
