Remember the Jewish people in this century?? They made the desert bloom.
Somewhere along the line of the last decades, the planting stopped by Am Yisrael (the Jewish nation), but it was takenn up furiously by the Arabs, who are doing their best to illegally take over as much land as they can.
Women in Green and the Yibaneh Fund are trying to counter the illegal Arab expansion onto Jewish land. You can watch their activities here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hjs7hn2DN7M
Led by two heroines of this generation, Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katzover, WIG planters are trying to save the remaining State Lands in Gush Etzion and want to continue planting throughout Judea, Samaria and everywhere illegal Arab encroachment on the land is manifested.
The message: Return to the Land. Plant, plant, plant. Connect to the land the way we were meant to do so. Plant!!
