This is a highly politicized book masquerading as academia and lacks objectivity. If you read it, bear this in mind. There are countless examples of this bias, for but one example the explanation of the seemingly innocent translation of the Hebrew name for JNF as something more nefarious "Capital Fund for Israel" is explained to be some cover for dark operations, etc. From the outset the authors make clear that Jews are invaders and have no historical claim to the land, only Arabs.
One of the laws of humanity: Plant trees in your own land. JNF stole lands from Palestinians, ethnically cleansed 100s of villages in 1948, and desrtoyed their homes so that they could not return to their villages.
Planting millions of trees in lands that do not belong to you, your father, or your grandfather, is not one of the laws of humanity. Being terrorized in Europe, does not give you the right to land on other people's property and terrorize its inhabitants.
My village, Bet Dajan near Yaffa (Jaffa, Yaffo) was ethnically cleansed on 25-4-1948 (5000 individuals fled fearing for lives, REMEMBER Deir Yassin?). Twenty years later, Fadel Ramadan grew into a 40 something year old man and wanted to see his father's house. It was occupied by Jews from Yemen! Other people's houses were occupied by Jews from Ukrane, Germany, Romania, Litwania, Morocco, etc.....
To all past, present, amd future JNF members (AND their supporters), just image... on 25-4-2XXX, you wake up... you and your family are in the street, and a foriegn family is enjoying your house (They claim their ancestors lived in your house 3000 years ago). Enjoy the dream and enjoy our Palestinian land.
Read history. No agressors lasted for ever.
