Sarid: Don't Contribute to JNF

In a Friday morning Haaretz article, former Minister and loquacious leftist spokesman Yossi Sarid called upon readers to cease making contributions to the Jewish National Fund.

Following the Knesset's recent vote reaffirming that land owned by the JNF is for Jewish settlement only, Sarid told the big contributors : "don't give a shekel" to the JNF "until it begs" the Knesset not to ratify the law in its final readings.

Sarid also wrote that there is no need for a national unity government because Israel already has one: "the Judaism of muscle and arbitrariness has a tremendous majority in the Knesset," he explained.
