I urge JNF to refrain from sending its bulldozers from its new work camp at Givot Bar onto the nearby land of the Abu-Freih family, or onto any other Bedouin land in the Negev.
I call on JNF to announce a freeze on all home demolitions, development and forestation on all Bedouin land, until a just solution is agreed upon with the Negev Bedouin community.
Please pass on my message to Russell Robinson and Ronald Lauder:Stop planting JNF forests on confiscated Bedouin land.
Stop sowing conflict between Jews and Arabs in the Negev!It’s time for JNF to change course and issue a public commitment that JNF will end these wrongful acts. JNF must no longer hide behind unjust laws to justify its own irresponsible acts, which are harmful to Israel and to JNF itself.
Response to Objections: If the JNF person starts changing the subject and talking about some other JNF project, tell them that whatever good the JNF may do elsewhere is far outweighed by its its willingness to plant forests on confiscated Bedouin land - and previously on the land of demolished Bedouin villages which it helped destroy.Let us know how it went! Then email us at email@example.com and let us know how your call went. Your feedback will be most valuable in planning the next steps in our campaign to persuade the JNF to do the right thing.
