Commemorate Land Day - Stop the JNF
Stop The JNF Days of Action 2016
The American Muslims for Palestine, as part of the Stop the JNF Campaign, is calling for Palestinian rights activists to take action between March 30 (Land Day) and April 18 (Tax Day) to amplify efforts targeting the Jewish National Fund for its role in the ongoing displacement of Palestinians from their land.
The JNF was started in 1901 with the sole purpose of buying up Palestinian land in advance of Zionist immigration. With its 'Transfer Department' it played a major role in forcing Palestinians out of their homes and villages during the Nakba.
Today, the JNF enjoys tax-exempt status as a charitable organization in the United States even though the reality of its work -- supporting the ongoing Nakba, planting forests on top of destroyed Palestinian villages or constructing settlements on Palestinian land -- actually contravenes US policy.
The JNF is not charitable.
The Stop the JNF Campaign seeks to revoke the charitable status of the JNF. You can help with these efforts between March 30-April 18 by taking the following actions!
