Commemorate Deir Yassin by helping us Stop the JNF
Sixty-eight years ago today, the Irgun and Stern Gang perpetrated a massacre of horrific proportions on the village of Deir Yassin. Though there were massacres previous to the April 9, 1948 incident, Deir Yassin was used as a fear tactic to force Palestinians to flee their villages.
You can read testimony from the survivors of Deir Yassin in our book: Preserving our Narrative, which focuses mainly on the Nakba.
It is also important to note that the Jewish National Fund, which was established in 1901 to transfer Zionists into Palestinians and Palestinians out of Palestine, was instrumental in preparing the way for the Nakba. The JNF made the Nakba possible and today it still allocates land for settlement construction and is responsible for much discrimination against Palestinians in Israel.
Commemorate Deir Yassin by helping us Stop the JNF by signing our petition asking the IRS to investigate the NLG's Regulatory Challenge to the JNF's charity status.Then join us as we deliver these petitions to IRS offices around the country on April 18.
