The Jewish National Fund (JNF) is a non-profit organisation founded in 1901. "Over the past 107 years", it claims to have "evolved into a global environmental leader by planting 240 million trees, building over 200 reservoirs and dams, developing over 250,000 acres of land, creating more than 1,000 parks, providing the infrastructure for over 1,000 communities, bringing life to the Negev Desert and educating students around the word about Israel and the environment." [1]

It has been described by the Israeli historian Ilan Pappe as "a colonialist agency of ethnic cleansing" [2]
