Dubai United Arab Emirates:- The administration of the Jewish National Fund (Permanent Fund of Israel - Kern Kimet) intends to expand its activities to promote the settlement project in the West Bank, in a radical change of the policies of the institution that formed the cornerstone of the Jewish settlement project, since its establishment in 1901.

According to the Israeli news site Walla, the foundation’s management will study a proposal to regulate its activities in the West Bank and allow it to “purchase land” (with private Palestinian ownership) and expand and develop settlements.

The proposal stipulates on the agenda of the administrative board of "Kern Kimet" that "the Foundation will formally purchase private Palestinian lands in Area C in the West Bank, for the purpose of a possible expansion of the existing settlements."

The JNF avoided operating openly in the West Bank, and its activities were concentrated in the occupied territories in 1967 by transferring budgets to settlement organizations and affiliated companies that worked to purchase lands, but the new head of the foundation, Avraham Dovdvani, is working to change this policy.

The Walla report indicated Dovdvani's keenness to keep these measures out of sight, as the proposed resolution was sent to the members of the Board of Directors in hard copy and the proposal was delivered to them in person, and they were explicitly asked to maintain confidentiality.

The report referred to the economic dimensions of the anticipated "Kern Kimmet" policies, as well as the sweeping settlement expansion that might result from them.

The report quoted sources on the Israeli right as saying that the decision will make it possible to open a new area for "Kern Kimmet" activities and to invest hundreds of millions of shekels in budgets, some of which are donations from Jews in the United States and other countries, devoted to developing and expanding settlements.

"This is a preliminary decision that gives the JNF the right to operate in Judea and Samaria (the biblical name for the West Bank), on top of the table and not under it," an official source at an Israeli foundation said, indicating that the settlement activities in the West Bank of the foundation will be turned into the open, but the National Fund The Jew denies any intention at this stage to open a "new area of ​​work and influence."

The report indicated that within two years, the position of head of the Jewish National Fund will be transferred to the Likud, and that the most prominent candidate for the presidency of the foundation is Member of Knesset, Haim Katz.

Likud also controlled the settlement division of the World Zionist Organization and the "Land Development" department of the Jewish National Fund.

Likud explicitly expressed its strategic goal of controlling Zionist institutions, which is "to settle one million (additional) settlers in Judea and Samaria."

The report stated that the party assigned to form right-wing alliances in the Zionist institutions is a group of settlers who are members of the Likud called "Milocadim" led by David Tzfiel and Yishai Merling, who was also appointed head of the settlement division.

It is expected that the Israeli "center-left" parties represented in the Zionist institutions and the Jewish National Fund will oppose the right's attempt to change policies to promote settlement in the occupied West Bank, and will try to mobilize a coalition to obstruct this step, especially due to the political "timing sensitivity" - the Israeli elections and the assumption of the Joe Biden administration. Power in the United States.

For years, the JNF sought to conceal land acquisition activities in the occupied West Bank, with opposition from center-left parties and current representatives of major Jewish donors abroad, particularly in the United States.

In practice, however, the JNF continued to transfer funds to seize lands in the West Bank through a settlement company affiliated with it called "Himnuta", which was created in 1938 to purchase land.

In 2018, the journalist Raviv Drucker revealed that the Jewish National Fund had secretly transferred tens of millions of shekels for the purpose of purchasing lands in the occupied West Bank without the knowledge and approval of the Board of Directors of the Jewish National Fund.

The proposal, which is being discussed by the management board of "Kern Kimet" next week, stipulates transferring most of the powers from the "Himnuta" company to the Jewish National Fund itself and changing the name of the company to "Kedma Judea and Samaria."

According to the proposal, "Kern Kimmet" will work on developing and strengthening settlement in the West Bank at all levels, including through the development of projects and initiatives and through educational, community and awareness activities and other measures for afforestation, environmental protection and the preservation of open spaces.

The proposal stipulates that "Kern Kimet" will work in coordination with the settlement councils and the Civil Administration of the Israeli government in the (occupied) territories.

According to the proposed decision, priority will be to purchase land within the existing settlements, and then land adjacent to them, which can be used to expand settlements.

In addition, it will use the funds of international donors whose internal law allows the states residing in them to purchase land in the West Bank (countries that do not criminalize Israeli settlement in their domestic laws).

The plan focuses on giving priority to buying land in and around the informal settlement outposts.

The proposal stresses the purchase of lands in the Jerusalem area, the Jordan Valley, the settlements of "Gush Etzion" and the Hebron region, and in the vicinity of the settlements "Carmel", "Maon", "Susiya", Mitsudat Yehuda, "Eshkolot", "Sensana" and other settlements south of Hebron. .

The plan also includes focusing on strengthening settlements in the "Binyamin" area in the middle of the occupied West Bank, including the settlements of "Adam", "Maale Mechmash", "Beit Horon", "Kochav Yaqoub", "Modiin Illit", "Matityahu" and "Beit Aryeh, Ofrim, Mavo Horon, Hasmonaim, and Kfar Horanim.

In addition to the areas adjacent to Road No. 5 adjacent to the Green Line in the following settlements: “Ariel,” “Kiryat Netafim,” “Brokhin,” “Aali Zahav,” “Barkan,” “Etz Ephraim,” “Elkana,” and “Sha'ari Tikva.” , “Oranit,” “Alfi Menashe,” “Tasufim,” and “Selait.”
