Navot the Jezreelite was a farmer, as recorded in I Kings 21, and he was murdered for his vineyard by Israel's King Ahab. Ahab made Navot an offer he perhaps shouldn't have refused: "Give me your vineyard, and it will become a vegetable garden for me, for it is close to my home, and I will give you a better vineyard in exchange. Or, if you wish, I will pay you its worth in silver."
The reply of Navot was "Heaven forbid that I should give up my forefathers’ inheritance to you."
In a report by a new NGO, Kerem Navot, and funded by Diakoniya, a Swedish pro-Pal. "humanitarian, development and peace-building" NGO, by a veteran anti-settlement activist, Dror Etkes (formerly Peace Now, formerly Yesh Din, etc.) on page 89, has a picture of "an attempted agricultural takeover" near Shiloh.
The picture, showing a Star of David ploughed in the ground, is actually of a plot of land that the courts, at least twice, if not three times, have adjudicated that belong to Shiloh residents who have the full legitimate right to work those lands despite Arab claims which have been proven false and without legal basis.
The ploughing was done after a court victory in favor of the Jewish rights to the land.
Several times, Arik Ascherman prodded, if not perhaps incited, local Arabs from Qaryout, to attack Jews verbally and otherwise and to illegally plough that land to establish a non-existent claim. He failed in his attempts to dislodge Jews from their land although one resident of Shiloh suffered a slight concussion (see here, too).
I'm just wondering: exactly who is the "Navot" figure in this story?
And who is Achav?
Could it be Dror?
Or those European funds with their millions?
