Vineyards are about to be bulldozed: Make your voice heard!

The court system in Israel ruled this week that forty-two acres of Jewish-owned vineyards in Samaria must be uprooted and destroyed. The vineyards are owned by Achiya Farm industries, which bottles much of the olive oil that Blessed Buy Israel sells, from olives grown and produced by small farmers and businesses in Judea and Samaria.

In Israel, there is a law called the “disruptive use order,” which means that if an Arab comes forward to claim that a Jew invaded his land, then the Jewish tenant must be evicted, according to The Israel Guys.

This absurd law, which has been highly criticized by numerous Israeli legal experts, allows anybody to claim any land without bringing proof. Yet, Achiya was recently targeted with this “disruptive use order” over forty-two acres of their land, and although the court system ruled that the Arab party that brought the claim did not have sufficient proof of ownership, they also ruled that the order should go through. This means that vineyards painstakingly planted on this land, that was allotted for Jews to live on, are slated to be bulldozed.

The destruction of the vineyards is scheduled for as early as next week, and if these vineyards are destroyed before the grapes can be harvested, Achiya may lose half of this year’s produce, which will equal nearly half of their income.

You can read more about this disastrous decision by an Israeli court to destroy vineyards owned by Jews at The Israel Guys website.

We’re calling on lovers of Israel to raise their voices and say no to this outrageous destruction of Jewish property, on Jewish owned land, in the Jewish State. One way you can stand with Achiya, and other small businesses in the region is to buy their olive oil here. We are working to place another order as soon as possible. Your purchases are a direct investment in the families and small businesses building Israel’s Heartland.

I have joined with HaYovel in supporting Israel and fulfilling Biblical prophecy by pruning grapevines and olive trees in Samaria and Judea. It is hard to imagine how destroying vineyards in Israel’s Heartland blessed by God can accomplish anything good and just.

I think that the ones who made up that law are the ones that need to be abolished.

I think you need to get CUFI involved in this. The Israeli government listens to them.

I do not understand how someone can be forced to destroy 42 acres of their farm land and the crop growing there when the person filing the complaint can’t even prove that he has any right to the land. If you can’t prove ownership or the right of way, you should not have any right to destroy what someone else has worked so hard to accomplish. Whoever came up with that conclusion needs to be charged with aiding the accomplishment of a fraud and punished accordingly.

I wish there’s a petition that could be signed! As an outsider looking in, I think that particular law needs to be abolished!
