the riot police are here

When we arrived back in the Yishuv, we wre greeted with the sight of about 30 riot police taking a break in the community park. They were tasked with guarding the Arab farmers that were inside of the community's security fence in order to pick olives from the olive trees.

Although the trees are on Jewish land, the Arabs have permission to enter the community and harvest the olives.

The riot police are there to ensure the safety of the Arabs.

The wise men of Chlem have got to laughing at us for this one.
