The Israel Land Fund is a group dedicated to restoring Jewish property in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. This Zionist foundation is reportedly looking east. According to AFP, the organization plans to begin buying historically Jewish properties in Jordan as well.
Many Jews purchased land in what is now Jordan during the British Mandate, when such land was seen primarily as part of the greater Land of Israel. In 1946 Jordan declared independence as an Arab, Muslim country. Two years later, the state of Israel declared independence, and Jordan’s rulers confiscated Jewish-owned land in their own country for state use.
Israel Land Fund chairman Aryeh King told AFP that his organization has proof that thousands of properties in present-day Jordan were historically Jewish, adding, «We have records of the ownership».
The plan is in its early stages, and no properties in Jordan have been bought to date. Purchasing would likely take place with the help of Jews in Europe, King said, as Israelis are prohibited from buying land in Jordan under Jordanian law.
The same Jordanian law is enforced by the Palestinian Authority, which views the sale of land to Jews or Israelis as a capital offense. The Land Fund manages to circumvent PA law by buying land through middlemen. In many cases, the group also helps Arab sellers to flee the country in order to avoid PA retribution.

The Arab Palestinians who do not want to live in Israel, have always had the option to reclaim their former citizenship in Jordan. From 1948 to 1967, they were de facto living in Jordan, since the so called West Bank was occupied by Jordanian soldiers.
Yesterday, the Kingdom of Jordan revoked the right for Arab Palestinians to get citizenship in Jordan. Thats the love Muslim brothers is able to show for each other.
The Arab Palestinians in the Jewish regions of Judea and Samaria is the victim of a evil, cruel and in human sufferings, pushed on them by an Islamic agenda of using them as a tool to destroy Israel.
The Jewish people have prospered after God of the Bible gathered them home to the land of Zion. There seems to be no end to the pain and suffering of the Arab Palestinians. They basically bites the hands that feed them. I will soon make an article with demographics and labor information. The truth is that there have never been anyone who have cared more for the Muslims living in Israel than the Jewish people.
