Who Will Head KKL-JNF?
One month to go until the next meeting of the World Zionist Congress and the fighting for ‘plum appointments’ is in high gear.
from The Jerusalem Post:
The Labor Party’s Executive Committee will hold what is expected to be a stormy meeting at the Land Of Israel Museum in Tel Aviv Sunday night after an internal party court ruled that Labor chairman Ehud Barak cannot appoint his ally, Agriculture Minister Shalom Simhon, as world chairman of KKL-JNF.
… Labor officials said it was premature to deal with the KKL-JNF chairmanship when it is still unclear whether Labor will even be given the post in coalition talks in the World Zionist Congress that will not begin before next month.
