Terrorists accuse tree planters of racism

Many of us grew up with blue JNF boxes in our homes and schools. Most of us never envisioned the accusation that those who used - and continue to use - the proceeds of those boxes to reclaim land in Israel could be accused of 'racism.' But in today's Orwellian environment, that has now happened. And - surprise - the accusers all have ties to terror organizations.
The "Stop the JNF Campaign" alleges that the Jewish National Fund "was instrumental in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in the 1948 Nakba, and continues to play a central role in maintaining Israel's regime of apartheid." It calls for the revocation of JNF's charity and to isolate the group by breaking all ties with it.

The campaign posted an action alert on its website last Friday asking its readers not to support JNF's "Green Sunday" on Feb. 5. "Don't be taken in," the alert reads. "The JNF's tree planting is a cover for ethnic cleansing."

Despite its shrill and nonsensical premise, the "Stop the JNF Campaign" has garnered support from organizations across the United States, the United Kingdom and other countries around the world. It also has spread to American and Canadian college campuses.


A look at the founders of the Stop the JNF Campaign helps explain its outrageous agenda. It was started by the Habitat International Coalition (HIC), the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network (IJAN), the Scottish Solidarity Campaign (SPSC) and the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions National Committee (BNC).
Read the whole thing.

I can think of no better answer to this outrageous campaign than to make a contribution to JNF's Green Sunday.

No Carl- the JNF refuses to fund Jewish activities beyond the Green Line; in fact it gives Jewish money to finance the planned Arab city of Rabawi.

I cannot in good conscience support it today.

I propose a "Stop the 'Stop the JNF Campaign' Campaign".
