Buy a piece of Israel

'Buy a Piece of Israel!

Save the Galilee

“One who purchases 4 cubits (amot) in the Land of Israel is assured a portion in the World to Come” (Midrash Zuta on Megilat Ruth 4:5)

Because it’s Time to Take our Country Back!'

More details here but here's an extract:
'As a result of demographic and political trends in the past 25 years, Israel finds itself in the midst of a national crisis of hitherto unknown proportions: Jewish farmers and landowners are victimized by the illegal expropriation of their land through means of robbery, violence and intimidation by their Arab neighbors. Illegal grazing, planting and residential construction by Arabs have taken place over huge tracts of Jewish owned land that were liberated at the founding of the State of Israel in 1948. It would appear that the government of Israel has been unwilling or unable to enforce laws that would prevent such actions.

Feeling the pinch of Arab land grabbers, some Jewish farmers have felt compelled to sell their land to Arabs and it has also been reported that private investors from oil rich Arab Gulf states like Saudi Arabia are purchasing sizable land parcels in Israel.

This deepening morass has served as impetus for many rabbis in Israel to issue edicts prohibiting Jews from selling land to Arabs, as was recently reported by Arutz Sheva. Increasing frustrations among Jewish residents of the Galilee have prompted some to begin taking concrete action to preserve Jewish land ownership. One such person in Joel Busner, founder of the B’Ahavat Yisrael charitable organization and the founder of a new private venture called, “Buy A Piece of Israel”. '
