  1. This beautiful olive tree remembered me of this other, al-Badawi (yes, olive trees have names in Palestine), in al-Walaja, by many considered the oldest in the world:
    I read an article lately, I can’t remember where or who wrote it, but there was a description of the continual uprooting of olive trees, and a Palestinian peasant told the writer something like: “I’m not ashamed to say that I talk with my trees, and what they tell me is a sad story”. I can’t remember if it was the peasant or the trees who cried in the story, but I did reading it.
    Here’s a very moving footage filmed by Israeli peace activists in Artas (Ertas) close to Bethlehem too, it’s not olive trees but it’s the same story.
    I hope Izik, our “Proud Israeli” will look at it, but maybe he was among the IDF-soldiers at min 7:30 who find the tree uprooting so funny that they just can’t stop laughing. And when you see the sorrow among the peasants just afterwards, the Israeli pride is highly understandable….
