  KKL Lands

The Adalah organization has initiated lawsuits in the Supreme Court against the Keren Kayemet Leyisrael (KKL) for redeeming land and leasing it only for the benefit of the Jewish People. The goal of the case, like other cases brought by the organization, is to create a precedent for denying the Jewish People any special status in the State of Israel.



With the encouragement of the Institute for Zionist Strategies, important Israel figures – such as Professor Yisrael Aumann, Major General (Ret.) Moshe (Boggie) Ya'alon, Dubi Helman (the former Secretary of the United Kibbutz Movement), Professor Simha Yigal, Professor David Cassuto and others – have submitted declarations as to why the bylaws of the KKL should not be changed. The KKL bylaws were passed already at the Fifth Zionist Congress in 1903 and were formulated by Benyamin Ze'ev Herzl, who wrote that "KKL lands will always be the possession of the Jewish People". Our main claim is as follows: It is unimaginable that the Jewish People will not have ownership of the land in its homeland. As is widely known, the land of the Israel Land Administration leases land to all citizens of Israel – Jewish and non-Jewish, to which we of course have no objection. The land under its control constitutes 87% of the land in Israel, while the land controlled by the KKL comprises only 13%. Our interest is in the nature of the case, and in the possible precedent that could lead to the next case – the cancellation of the Law of Return.
