Jewish activists confront the JNF

The JNF according to historian Ilan Pappe is Israel’s main agency of ethnic cleansing. For nearly a decade the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign has been waging a lonesome fight against this pernicious outfit which, outrageously, enjoys tax-exempt charitable status in many Western countries. Now it is being confronted by some great Jewish activists both in the UK and the US. This latest protest took place in Atlanta where some activists were physically abused after trying to disrupt the JNF event. They deserve our support and encouragement. (via Mondoweiss)

For more on the JNF see the SPSC’s invaluable e-book.

    My tweets back to @JNFUSA:

    . @JNFUSA which of the organisations you quote in your letter are Bedouin? does the municipality of Hura back you? http://is.gd/fZJRy

    . @JNFUSA Bedouin people comprise 30% of the population of the Negev – do you have their democratic assent to your ethnic cleansing?

    No response as yet.
