Farming Olives in the Shomron

I received this video through my very evil, very illegal, very inappropriate contacts with the Global Untermenschen. It's a promotional puff piece for Jewish farming in the territories liberated in '67. What I personally found interesting are the modern techniques and equipment being used to harvest and process olive trees, which contrast sharply with traditional Palestinian olive picking. The days of buck-toothed and barefoot felahe kids climbing trees to get the olives on most remote branches (you know who you are) are long behind us.
