    olive trees in one area or one action?

    I've been reading about various actions where settlers are coming in with bulldozers and the protection of IDF soldiers, ripping up olive trees and ruining people's livelihoods, and another story to day about demolishing a mosque.  

    Maybe the half million number is a total from different areas or over a period of time?

    I have read about a number of other retaliatory actions too over the past couple of days.  First they bombed the hell out of Gaza and after the ceasefire they are retaliating still, calling it a "price to pay for Gaza".

    This is a horrible mess.  I fear for any Palestinians within reach of people who would attack them in anger because of the UN vote.  This is bizarre.  On one hand, Israelis say the UN vote meant nothing, was meaningless.  And at the same time they are furious about it and retaliating for it.  The attitude is like that of a destructive person who threatens to do more damage and hurt more people unless you give them what they want.  And how far will they go?  These unhinged leaders in Israel have nukes.
