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.
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.
Groups of Jews from Latin America plant trees in Israel, after visiting the sites where their people were murdered during the Holocaust in Poland. First they saw how the Nazis tried to destroy the life of the Jewish people, and then they flew to Israel to plant trees and celebrate Israel Independence Day with crowds of Israelis.
