Student Radicals Wage War on Israeli Trees

, Malcolm A. Kline, 1 Comment

When do tree-hugging students dislike trees? When they’re in Israel.

At a conference on “environmental racism” at Penn, participants, including Students for Justice in Palestine, warned of the danger of Israeli forests. “The students found a particular problem in the planting of pine trees in Israel and the West Bank, drawing a ‘connection between pine trees, forestation, and the way they further the colonialist agenda through capitalistic (sic) means of timber production,’”Daniel Tancredi reported in The Statesman, an alternative journal at Penn.

    Some questions for these students about that country of Palestine :

    When was it founded and by whom?
    What were its borders?
    What was its capital?
    What were its major cities?
    What constituted the basis of its economy?
    What was its form of government?
    Can you name at least one Palestinian leader before Arafat?
    Was Palestine ever recognized by a country whose existence, at that time or now, leaves no room for interpretation?
    What was the language of the country of Palestine ?
    What was the prevalent religion of the country of Palestine ?
    What was the name of its currency? Choose any date in history and tell what was the approximate exchange rate of the Palestinian monetary unit against the US dollar, German mark, GB pound, Japanese yen, or Chinese yuan on that date.
    And, finally, since there is no such country today, what caused its demise and when did it occur?
