Operation "Establishing Facts on the Ground"
Planting Trees on the Hills and Planting Values in the heart

Today, the people of Israel understand the tremendous damage caused by the anarchists who masquerade as peace-lovers, and the danger inherent in their "humanitarian" activity, as they presumably are concerned for the welfare of the "unfortunate" Arabs.

Actually, this is an anti-Semitic struggle backed by tremendous budgets, the goal of which is to push the Jews into the sea - and first, out of Judea and Samaria.

We, the activists in the field, have had to contend with them for some time. At Shdema they used sophisticated, passive violence, but, thank G-d, we succeeded in repelling them, and the IDF returned to the place, and established an outpost there. They are agitating without respite at Hazon David, next to Kiryat Arba-Hebron. Along Road 60 in Judea and Samaria, signs have been erected by the Oxfam organization, that, too, gives the Arabs millions of dollars to work the lands.

In Netzer, in Gush Etzion between Elazar and Alon Shvut, the anarchists from the JAI (Joint Advocacy Initiative) agitate and aid the Arabs to plant and seize lands. On every tree that they plant they put a sticker with the name and symbol of their organization. The sign by the Dutch government that stands at the entrance to Netzer attests, more than a thousand words, to their intentions: "Monetary and agricultural aid to Arabs in reclamation of lands - 123 dunams." The sign lists four organizations and the Dutch government, all partners in their sincere "concern" for the Arabs.

At present, a struggle for every dunam of soil is being waged at Netzer, as at many additional locations in Judea and Samaria.

We can close our eyes, and lose the land reserves for the development of our communities, until we will wake up one day and see that all the lands are worked by Arabs, right up to our windowsills.

The Yibaneh Fund, founded by Women for Israel's Tomorrow (Women in Green), and the Netzer Group have decided to take action and initiate "Operation Establishing Facts on the Ground."

We have been active on the ground for a while and we planted several dunams in Netzer. Now, the pace has to be accelerated.

If we don't hurry up, the Arabs and the anarchists will beat us to it. Naturally, we call upon every community to act in the same manner.

Youth, too, will be enlisted in this operation for a work camp in July with agricultural guides, to plant trees on the hill and plant values in the heart. Details of the agricultural work camp are detailed in the flyer that can be seen by clicking on the link below.

We expect all friends of Israel to mobilize. We are all partners! Not everyone can go out in the field, but everyone can contribute and thereby be a full participant in the redemption of the lands of Eretz Israel.

As we describe in the flyer that you can see on our site:
20 people each contributing NIS 500 ($150) will redeem one dunam, in which 36 olive trees or 220 vines will be planted. The price includes:
work with a tractor, tools, water for a year, tubing, manpower, seedlings, maintenance.

Our goal for this summer is to redeem 20 dunams of land in Netzer, and hopefully an additional 40 dunams in Netzer by Hanukka.

Be partners! Each one donates as much as he can!
