Jeremy Corbyn Proposed Motion Praising Anti-Zionists’ Attack on Jewish National Fund – Lee Harpin (Jewish Chronicle-UK)
British Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn proposed a motion in March 2011 which welcomed the launch by the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network of the “Stop the Jewish National Fund” campaign – which accused the JNF of being a global fundraiser for “ethnic cleansing, occupation and apartheid.”
The JNF, founded in 1901, has planted 250 million trees in Israel. Its current projects focus on relieving poverty, bringing hi-tech industries to remote desert towns and promoting community development.
