South African Jews have opted for nonviolent communication strategies in support of Israel's God-given right and Covenant to possess the Holy Land. Mr. Ismael Coovadia, who knowingly and willingly served as South Africa's Ambassador to Israel until December, 2012, recently rejected a gift of 18 trees planted in his honor on land also recognized by the international community as Israeli territory.
It is well known that the Land of Israel is a central meeting point for three continents: Asia, Europe and Africa. The 2013 International Exhibition for marketing of fresh agricultural produce took place in June at the hub of this meeting point, Tel Aviv.
Did you know? Israel's forests are not indigenous. Most of the trees in the Holy Land have been planted by human hands.
FACT: Going into the 21st century, Israel is one of only two countries that has increased its quota of trees.
