      Hevron Area Farmer: Arabs Out to Kill Me

      Agriculture Minister Yair Shamir, along with MKs Zvulun Calfa and Orit Struk, visited a field in the Hevron area Sunday, where they heard a chilling story from the Jewish owner of the field.

      According to the farmer, residents of a nearby Arab village had planned to murder him. The vineyard, in the village of Sde Calev, belongs to Menachem Livni. He has been working the field for 20 years, growing, among other things, cherries.
