MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) is demanding to know why the Jewish National Fund (JNF) has stopped planting trees in the Negev following protests from Bedouin land thieves. In a letter to honorary JNF co-chairman Eli Aflalo, Eldad said the JNF’s inaction means it no longer has a purpose.

“I was shocked to read the article by [journalist] Kalman Liebskind on February 26. From the article I learned that, despite repeated court rulings in its favor, the JNF has decided to halt plantings in Arkib in the Negev,” Eldad wrote.

In a nutshell, the JNF has given into Bedouin land thieves, and has even provided land to Arabs in the Galil, because the JNF - the Jewish National Fund - is not the JNF; it is, and has been for a long time, the ANF - the Arab National Fund.

JNF donors SHOULD give elsewhere.
