For Those Who Don't Believe Israel Shoots Innocent Farmers

Salem-News, May 9, 2010

Activists have repeatedly witnessed Palestinian farmers being shot at by Israeli forces as they attempt to work on agricultural land situated within 700m of the Green Line.

(SALEM, Ore.) - It was late February in 2009, when Israeli forces shot a twenty-year-old Palestinian farmer as he worked his land in the village of Al-Faraheen, east of Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip.

U.S. made HUMVEE used by IDF

Weeks earlier, on Tuesday 27 January 2009, in Al Faraheen, Israeli forces shot at several farmers, killing a 27-year-old man whose job in life was that of a farmer.

We are told this happens often, though Israelis deny it.

As it turns out in the February case though, International Human Rights Activists were accompanying the group of farmers at the time as they worked approximately 500m from the Green Line.

They were rolling when the shots were fired. To underscore the real responsibility for these actions, the camera shows that the Israeli Defense Force soldiers, murderers in this case, driving a HUMVEE - just exactly like U.S. forces.

Israeli soldiers were shooting as this American stood
calmly and told them to stop shooting, as the people were
unarmed farmers working their own land

I'm sure the Palestinians always see a hint of Americanism in the bullets that slay their families, from far away, from a military force with no courage, but plenty of violent hostility toward an unarmed, defenseless populace.

20-year-old Mohammad al-Breem, was shot in the right leg as the farmers worked together with the international Human Rights Activists. There were more shots as they attempted to leave the area having worked on their land for 2 hours in full view of the Israeli forces situated along the Green Line.

There was no surprise, no provocation; the IDF let them think they could work their own land, and then after a while they opened fire.

Farmers of every persuasion, from every corner of the globe, should condemn this ongoing genocide of the Palestinians by Israel's unaccountable government forces.

In case you were curious, the farmers' crime, that Israel deemed open season over, was the loading of parsley and spinach from the agricultural lands.

The shots were fired from Israeli forces on the border. Mohammad was shot in the right leg and evacuated, while still under fire, to a hospital.
