Israel State Comptroller: JNF Unfit for 21st Century

According to Globes, Israel State Comptroller Joseph Shapira, speaking at a conference at the University of Haifa yesterday, said: “I will not wait for the results of the committee that the prime minister said he will establish, a committee that has not been established to the best of my knowledge, and I will begin to decide the issues that should be audited at the Jewish National Fund (JNF). I will begin the audit unilaterally, and I will set dates for going to JNF institutions to begin the audit

“To say today that the JNF should not be audited is not suited for the 21st century. The JNF is a kind of state within a state. The many attempts to impose audits on the JNF encounter strong objections not only by the JNF. I believe that it should be audited…”
