Ensure the survival of Israel-from New Jersey!
Well, our foul-mouthed friends are at it again. Settlers have reached a new low by attempting to market properties in illegal West Bank Settlements, such as Shilo, Kiryat Arba, and Ofra on the outskirts of Ramallah, to American Jewish congregations.
The convenient transaction, laid out in the flier to above, would allow prospective buyers to "ensure Israel's survival" (and our destruction) without ever setting foot there, and subsequently having their newly purchased illegal property rented out to illegal settlers at the expense of Palestinians in surrounding villages and towns.
According to this article in the Jerusalem Post:
The project is being billed as an opportunity for American Jews to have a say in Israel's future. The Amana campaign reminds US Jews that they could leave their "thumbprint" on Israel's destiny.
"We are trying to help the settlements grow and prosper, and we see it as an investment in Israel's future," said Rabbi Pruzansky of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun [whose NY Synaoguge
is hosting the even].
In Karnei Shomron for example, said Amrusi, 100 couples married last year. In her home settlement of Talmon one third of the residents live in caravans or rented basements because there is no housing.
I'm devastated inside, really I am. If only it weren't for that whole occupation thing...
If you're interested in buying-or protesting-the informational meeting is being held at Congregation Bnei Yeshurun (flier here), 641 W. Englewood Ave. in New Jersey this Sunday, February 24.
And not to worry-according to the flier, your investment is "insured, protected, and 100% legal".
