The Invented Homeland The Jews Never Knew

Welcome to Israel.

When the Jews were given Palestine, illegally and undemocratically, by ruling imperialists, they faced a problem. They wanted their new country, ‘Israel’, to be both a Jewish state and a democracy.

But the majority of inhabitants were non-Jews. Had there been an election, that majority would have voted against any policies which defined ‘Israel’ as Jewish, or which gave any special rights to Jews.

Palestinian Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem: (1867-1948) we wish to express our definite opposition to a Jewish state in any part of Palestine.” July 16, 1947

 The early Zionists had to create a Jewish majority. And so they took two courses of action:

 They increased the Jewish population, by encouraging Jews to migrate to Israel. Those Jews were given citizenship, even if their families had never stepped foot in ‘Israel’ before.


Israel needed a population and Jews didn’t want to go. The holocaust was a ‘Ziorrific’ scare tactic to cause the Jews to flee with boats to Palestine waiting to “rescue” them.

They also decreased the native population within the new ‘Israel’, by instigating a process of never-ending ethnic-cleansing. A slow, horrific, sadistic  genocide.

Serial killing is the “Israeli” ladder to climb up for political  notoriety.

Professor Alon Tal’s “Pollution in the Promised Land: an Environmental History of Israel” does much more than its subtitle claims.

 As you would expect it tells the story of how Israel’s rapid economic development has come at a high environmental price; it traces the roots of Israel’s current water crisis to bad planning and short shortsightedness in the early years of the State; one chapter relates the staggering success, or disastrous stupidity (depending on your perspective) of the JNF’s forestry policies.

(The JNF planted over 200 million trees in Israel making it the only country in the world with a net positive tree balance over the last century; the only problem was that the fir trees that were mostly planted while perfect for Northern Europe, were inappropriate to the local environment and have caused great damage to local ecosystems.)

The Zionists use the JNF as a propaganda machine to green-wash their crimes, co-opting foreign diplomats by pretending to be nothing more than an environmental organization:

“With over 100 years of experience as caretaker of the land of Israel, Jewish National Fund has planted more than 240 million trees, transforming over 250,000 acres of arid land into lush green forests. Because of JNF’s forestry expertise and commitment to environmental protection, Israel is one of two countries to leave the 20th century with more trees than it had at the start. The trees already planted by JNF have absorbed an estimated 110 million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere”.


Tal recounts the haphazardness of Israel’s urban growth, the lack of coherent transport policies and the adoption of car-based suburban development models which, today, people see are wrong for the United States, and all the more wrong for Israel, a country the size of New Jersey.

But even more than chronicling Israel’s environmental journey, PITPL is a history of Zionism – the dream of the Jewish people’s return to its ancient homeland – told from an unusual but critically important standpoint. For Tal brings out how the early Zionist pioneers were in love with the romance of the Land of Israel, but largely clueless as to its physical reality.

Intoxicated by biblical accounts of the landscape, the actual mountains, rivers, flora, fauna and diarrhea -inducing diet were initially strange and alien to the early pioneers. Among many literary testimonies, Tal quotes Amos Oz’s description of his grandfather:

“My grandfather lived in the land of Israel forty-five years and never was in the Galilee or went south to the Negev. … But the land of Israel he loved with all his soul, and he wrote love poems in her honor (in Russian).”

In this framing, the history of Zionism has been a tragic-comic epic of the Jewish people re-learning how to live in the topographical and ecological reality of the homeland that it NEVER KNEW.

Michal Katorzah, a JNF employee in charge of signposting, admits this:

“A great part of our parks are on lands that were Arab villages, and the forests are a cover-up”.

 Katorzah gives the example of Ayn al-Zaytun, a village which once produced olives, cereals and grapes. It was home to eight hundred and twenty Palestinians before the Nakba. Then the Palmach, a Zionist force, captured the village, bound seventy men, and slaughtered them all. The JNF planted a forest to cover up that atrocity.

 This is not a lone example. The Mount Carmel National Park, for example, covers up the ancient villages of Ijzim, Umm al-Zinat and Khubbaza, which were all occupied during the Nakba. Imwas, Yalo and Beit Nouba, were covered by JNF trees after the Zionists took East Jerusalem in 1969.  The list goes on and on. In each case, the JNF use European pines rather than native trees, applying a sort of environmental imperialism.

  1. and the really really good news is no one on Earth HAS to be a “JEW”..!!!

    seriously, that is GREAT NEWS…especially for the “PROSELYTES” to Talmudic Judaism
    from the land of Gog & Magog…BIROBIDJAN !!!

    Palestine is a place…Israel is a people.

    “JEWS” will never be Israel.

    the issue is…Matthew 13:39-43 !!!

    in I Samuel 10:27….where are the Yiddish speaking KHAZAR “JEWS” ?

    were there NEGRO DALLAS COWBOYS at the Alamo…?

    most people could find out the truth about the money changers and PHARISEES
    if they really cared to know the truth about the Jesus hating psychopaths
    who claim to be “JEWS”…the big fat bloated parasites…TRILLIONAIRES
    and BILLIONAIRES…who will never be “Israel” @ Genesis 49.

    blessed are the pure in heart…
