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.

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.
