      ADL Opposes new Israeli Law
      Orthodox group favors JNF bill
      08/02/2007
      http://www.jta.org/cgi-bin/iowa/breaking/103396.html


      The National Council of Young Israel is supporting a Knesset bill that
      has generated significant opposition from many American Jewish groups.


      In a letter dated July 30, the executive director and president of the
      council defended a proposal that permits the Israel Lands Authority to
      maintain its longstanding policy of refusing to lease to non-Jews
      Israeli land owned by the Jewish National Fund.

      "Yes, Israel is a democracy; a bastion of freedom," wrote President
      Shlomo Mostofsky and Executive Director Rabbi Pesach Lerner. "But a
      democracy doesn't have to prove itself by forfeiting its right to its
      national purpose."

      Among those speaking out against the measure are the Union for Reform
      Judaism, the Anti-Defamation League and Ameinu, the American affiliate
      of the World Labor Zionist Movement. JNF's American fund-raising arm
      and the Zionist Organization of America both support it.
