Fredblogs: we get the Israeli side of the story 24/7. If someone tells the Palestinian side of the story, there are always “Israel firsters” who insist on “balance”. If this were the first time olive trees had been uprooted on Palestinian land, there would need to be some discussion. Unfortunately, it’s a well used tactic for displacing Palestinians by “settlers” (Jewish foreigners) and Israeli governments. You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts.
