JNF Canada has used its tax-deductible status for building and maintaining the infamous “Canada Park” on the ruins of 3 Palestinian villages, Imwas, Yalu and Beit Nuba, which were located in the occupied West Bank and destroyed after the 1967 war.

On April 10, 2016, the Jewish National Fund JNF Pacific Region is holding its annual “Negev Gala Dinner” and this year, it is “working with ‘No to Violence Against Women’(in Israel) to build a shelter for women and children”. They claim that “this shelter is for everyone, regardless of background.”

The JNF, with its racist policies of neither leasing nor selling land to non-Jews (i.e. Palestinians), cannot use a project like this to hide its true agenda of land confiscation and ethnic cleansing. Combating violence against women is a worthy goal, but what about the Palestinian Bedouin women (also Israeli citizens) from Al Araqib in the Naqab/Negev, who have suffered the ultimate violence of homelessness 95 times and counting at the hands of the JNF and Israeli forces?

And what about the hundreds of Palestinian girls and women that have been the victims of Israeli occupation violence on a daily basis? What about the 57 Palestinian women, including 13 minors, incarcerated in Israeli prisons?

What about the women and children in Gaza, living just south of this new shelter, who are not allowed by Israeli authorities to leave for proper medical treatment for various cancers?

“In January, dozens of female patients (in Gaza) staged a protest to voice their anger over the draconian restrictions, which Israel threatens to tighten, on patient movement . One of the protesters, Rawan Lubad, has lived with breast cancer for 10 years. The 61-year-old is in constant pain. She has twice applied to get a permit for referral. She was twice denied. ‘I am dying here. I feel that I have been sentenced to death,’ she said.”

Join us on April 10 to say: Hey JNF you can’t hide, Stop supporting apartheid!
