Jewish National fund

Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign supports the Stop the JNF campaign.  There is a large amount of material here.  There is a fact finding tour in late December.  Contact stop the JNF gb@stopthejnf.org
for further details.

We are encouraging our supporters to write to their MP asking them to sign the Early Day Motion 1677.

So Far Meg Munn has refused to sign.

David Blunkett is thinking about it.

Paul Blomfield initially refused but has rethought his position.

We do not know the position of Clive Betts and Nick Clegg

Ask your MP where they stand by filling out the letter below or write your own.

The MPs can be contacted here.

Dear

 

            I am one of your constituents.  I am concerned with the activities of the Jewish National Fund – KKL. 

There is plenty of evidence that the JNF is racist and complicit in ethnic cleansing.  See for example   http://www.stopthejnf.org/resources_campaignmaterials.html.

 

I find it astonishing that such an organisation should have charitable status in the UK.

Would you consider signing the early day motion on the issue?

Yours faithfully

 

 

 

 

 

................................................

Early day motion 1677

 

That this House welcomes the Stop the Jewish National Fund (JNF) Campaign launched on 30 March 2011 by the Palestinian Boycott National Committee, the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign and others to inform the public about the JNF - Karen Kayemet L'Yisrael, its ongoing illegal expropriation of Palestinian land, concealing of destroyed Palestinian villages beneath parks and forests, and prevention of refugees from returning to their homes; notes that the JNF's constitution is explicitly discriminatory by stating that land and property will never be rented, leased or sold to non-Jews; further notes that the UN rejected the JNF USA's application for consultative status with the Economic and Social Council on the ground that it violates the principles of the UN Charter on Human Rights; regrets that the Prime Minister is a JNF honorary patron; and believes that there is just cause to consider revocation of the JNF's charitable status in the UK.
