Britain’s continuing complicity in ethnic cleansing
British Park is a so-called leisure facility in Israel, created with funds from the UK wing of the Jewish National Fund (JNF-UK).
British Park is a crime scene, created on the lands of 7 Palestinian villages, emptied in the Nakba.
After 1948, the JNF helped Israel dispose of the stolen lands by creating parks and forests: 46 of JNF’s 68 parks or forests are on ethnically cleansed land. The rightful Palestinian owners still claim their Right of Return.
The JNF’s role in ethnic cleansing did not begin – or end – with the Nakba. From its inception in 1901 to this day, the JNF has been working to acquire Palestinian land, to remove the indigenous people from that land, and to replace them with Jewish people only – building Israeli apartheid, advancing settler colonialism.
The British Park campaign links JNF’s crimes of the past with its crimes today, e.g. in the Naqab and East Jerusalem.
The JNF tries to project itself as an environmental charity. The reality is that it is an integral tool in the zionist project.
Further background info and details of the ‘Stop the JNF’ campaign here.
Join us and our Palestinian partners to say “NOT IN OUR NAME” to the JNF and Israel.
