Settlers struck a virtual blow on Thursday against Palestinians and Israeli left-wing organizations that have published digital evidence of Jewish violence toward Palestinian olive farmers.

On Thursday the Samaria Citizens’ Committee opened up a new Web page on its site, for those who want to post evidence of Palestinian attacks on Jewish farmers.

Every year there are scores of one-sided burning stories of Palestinian olive farmers who have been victimized by Jews, the committee said. As a result, it continued, the olive harvest has been transformed from an agricultural event into a central media symbol to advance a political message.

To combat the distorted message of the Left, the committee said, it has decided to document incidents of Palestinian violence and left-wing provocation of settlers.

The committee plans to post photographs, videos and copies of complaints that settlers have filed with police about violent incidents.

Separately on Friday, settlers plan to gather near the Adei Ad outpost at 9:30 a.m. for a rally against Palestinian violence.

Those who come will call on Defense Minister Ehud Barak to resign and for the IDF to do a better job of securing the farmers and the settlements.

Rabbis for Human Rights said this week that Palestinians in the area of Adei Ad had found that 260 olive trees had been poisoned, an act they believe was done by Israelis.

They also said they had pictures of Israelis stealing olives in that area.
