El Al ceases cooperation with JNF!
Dalit Baum quoting a Rabbis for HR email:

Recently, the Recognition Forum (of which Rabbis for Human Rights is a part) wrote to EL AL, criticizing their new program in cooperation with the JNF. The letter (which you can read in it`s original Hebrew here:
) including the following sentence `We assume that you are not aware the JNF uses the trees in the Hiran forrest to dispossess the Arab-Bedouin community living there, under state orders, since 1956,` and went on to call on EL AL to pull out of all campaigns connected with the JNF. 

Yesterday, EL AL issued a formal response (see Hebrew here:
), in which they wrote that `without discussing the points you raised, and with no connection to them... EL AL informed the JNF of the cessation of cooperation with them, as you mentioned in your letter.` 

Cooperation between EL AL and the JNF will cease as of 1 May, 2012.
