I've Been Thinking:
On Friday the Syrians sent a formal, written, protest to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
The complaint stated that Israel is violating the human rights of Syrian citizens.
What are the Israelis doing?
They are chopping down cherry trees in the Golan Heights.
The cherry trees in question grow in a Druze village called Majd el Shams.
The citizens of the village are all Israeli, and they all have relatives in Syria.
According to Syria the Golan Heights still belongs to them and Israel has no right to cut down cherry trees on Syrian land.
On the serious side:
Cutting down fruit trees really is an offense and should only be done in the most extreme cases.
Actually, the Bible prohibits cutting down a fruit tree in Israel and there is reason to seriously question and examine the situation.
On the absurd side:
Syria, one of the greatest abusers of human rights in the world is championing the rights of trees.
