Lapid calls to nationalize ‘corrupt’ KKL-JNF

Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid on Tuesday called for nationalizing Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund, saying the body was corrupt and an impediment to lowering the cost of housing.

“The symbol of KKL-JNF used to be the little blue box,” he said. “Today, the symbol of KKL-JNF is corruption and the money that is transferred in the shadows from place to place without reporting to anyone, and the strange appointments, like the co-chairman and dozens of members of the board of directors and emissaries across the world.”

The fund, he said, transfers tens of millions of shekels to charities related to political parties (except Yesh Atid, he added).
