I’d like to say that JNF’s donors (who probably thought they were planting trees) would be outraged their cash is being placed delicately on the top of a huge pile of petro-dollars, but many of them probably approve.

The Jewish National Fund (Keren Kayemet Leyisrael) will pay former U.S. President Bill Clinton $500,000 in return for his coming to Israel to give a speech at a gala evening in Rehovot, and at a JNF event. He will also take part in the President’s Conference, where Peres will be honored by celebrities including barbra Streisand and Robert De Niro.The money will reportedly go to the Bill Clinton Foundation.
