New KKL JNF. about the Nabka (the Catastrophe) and some changes of opinion and perspective...
UNDER THE FORESTS The title refers to AB Yehoshua’s novella, “Facing the Forests” (1), which I somehow only got around to reading a couple of weeks ago. Ever since then, I can’t stop thinking about it and about what the Jewish National Fund (JNF – KKL) – the organization I’m heading – is doing with these forests. It is so sad that in the story, only after the Arab worker burns the JNF forest, it exposes what’s buried beneath it. Why must it be that way? Why not simply acknowledge what we’ve done, destroyed and covered up? Yehoshua has his worker’s tongue cut off, but ours is intact and we must use it to say out loud: Sixty-five years ago there was an entire culture here that we have destroyed to establish a Jewish State, whose ruins are covered by KKL forests. go on reading at: http://newkklenglish.wordpress.com/ Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/%D7%A7%D7%A7%D7%9C-%D7%94%D7%97%D7%93%D7%A9%D7%94-New-KKL/423812727744506
