Speaking of the Harvest ...

It's about time for the olive harvest ... NPR had some Palestinians talking about olive groves being burnt and/or destroyed by settlers. Of course, this may not be true, and NPR should be taken to task for appearantly not trying to verify whether these stories are true ... but if it is, destroying such fruit bearing trees is a horrendous violation of Jewish law, and, to allude to an old joke, it's bad enough that there should even be rumors. So where is are all the frummie Rabbis on this? Or is it just more fun to pester us liberal Jews about how we go about observing Jewish traditions in our particular zone of comfort?
