Palestinians, Anarchists, Torch Israeli-Owned Land Again

Israeli security arrested a dozen anarchists suspected of torching land belonging to the Bat Ayin. YNet News explains what happened:

The incident began at around 8 am when a group of 30 anarchists, accompanied by a number of photographers from the Al-Jazeera television network, arrived at the site. The anarchists set the field on fire and planted olive trees in the torched soil.

According to the settlers, the method is commonly used to take over land. "When the olive trees grow the Civil Administration has a difficult time determining who the land belongs to," one of them said.

The grove has been set on fire three times over the past few weeks by anarchists.

Now how do you think Al-Jazeera knew where and when to show up with a camera crew?

It's all an unreported aspect of the olive harvest war I discussed with Yarden Frankl in our most recent podcast.

Comments

Regarding the lack of coverage of the alleged arson by Palestinians and anarchists which you cite in the podcast, my daughter in Israel disputes this. Here is the link to her blog: http://lisagoldman.net/2010/11/20/
Is there any truth to her contention that routine land-clearing operations on Palestinian lands, not premeditated arson led to the forest fires? I feel that this is an important point which, if true, reflects a bias or perhaps lack of research on the part of Honest Reporting. I await your clarification.
