The JNF portrays itself as a “green” organisation but at the same time it is involved in human rights abuses against the Palestinian people – including house demolitions and forced removals. Furthermore, the JNF administers 13% of Israeli land (which it does not allow Palestinians to use) and jointly (with the Israeli Land Authority, an Israeli government body) administers another 80%. Israeli land policies are discriminatory and the JNF is intimately involved (and complicit) in maintaining and administering these policies. Attached are two brief pamphlets on the JNF.
