this is how the olive harvest should be in Palestine

Walking in rural Lebanon the other day I came across numerous families harvesting their olives in the same fashion you see in Palestine: tarp spread out, tree limbs shaken olives tumbling down, break for lunch in the shade of the olive tree, laughter, some singing….

But in Palestine, foreign colonists attack Palestinian harvesters…with the cover of the Zio army.

A simple, age-old act is rendered impossible or deadly.

for example:

As harvest season begins, Israeli settlers burn 100 Palestinian olive trees

Palestinian family attacked by settlers while harvesting olives

Israeli settlers beat young Palestinian woman picking olives
