Spanish Catalonian Journalist Pilar Rahola is one of the Spanish-speaking world’s most important and impassioned participants in the public debate of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and she is renowned for her pro-Israel sympathies. Recently she arrived in Israel for a two-day tour of the Negev with KKL-JNF, during which she heard about “security tree-planting” and the creation of security roads in Israel’s Gaza periphery, the creation of communities for Gush Katif evacuees, forest-planting in the desert and KKL-JNF’s activities on behalf of the Bedouin population.

“I identify with Israel, because it represents democracy, tolerance, equality and human rights,” she said during her visit. “Even though it lives in the shadow of constant conflict, it has to be said that Israel manages to preserve its function as a strong and active democracy.” KKL

Rahola has visited Israel around twenty times since the late 1970s, but this time she was given a rare opportunity to observe at first hand some of KKL-JNF’s remarkable activities in the Negev.
