Call JNF: Tell the Israeli gov't to cancel plans to expel 1,000 Bedouin and demolish 2 villages near JNF's Wadi Attir Project for a Jewish settlement

Scroll down to find the Jewish National Fund office near you and the national headquarters, and call to give JNF the message:

  • Tell Israeli government leaders to stop demolishing Bedouin villages and displacing Bedouin Israeli citizens to make way for Jewish settlements and forests.
  • Stop developing and foresting Negev land where the Israeli government has expelled Bedouin and demolished their villages.

Sample call script: "My name is ______ , [I'm an American Jew] and I care deeply about Israel and its increasingly eroding democracy. I’m calling today to urge you to tell Israeli government leaders that JNF is opposed to the Netanyahu government’s plan to forcibly expel 1,000 Bedouin men, women and children from their homes and demolish the Negev Bedouin villages of Atir and Um Al-Hiran, so that a new Jewish settlement called Hiran can be built on their land.

"Tell Israeli government leaders that these terrible acts are slated to take place near JNF’s Wadi Attir Project, and that JNF will not stand idly by as the Netanyahu government prepares to blatantly discriminate against Israel's Bedouin Arab citizens. These actions further undermine democracy in Israel and violate Israel’s commitment to equal rights for all citizens, Jewish and Arab alike, as enshrined in its Declaration of Independence and in human rights treaties which Israel has signed.

Please pass on my message to JNF CEO Russell Robinson and Chairman Ronald Lauder."
