A mouthful, I know. Just got this email. It refers to this, from Desertpeace:
THINK TWICE BEFORE SUBSCRIBING TO HAARETZ[snip]
Subscription offer from liberal Israeli newspaper helps JNF, a “charity” implicated in ethnic cleansing
Submitted by Asa Winstanley
After 1948, when Zionist militias drove out 750,000 Palestinians by force, the new state of Israel destroyed hundreds of their villages hoping to ensure the Palestinian refugees could not return. In many cases, the JNF planted trees on the ruins.
Palestinians and their supporters have protested against the JNF with a group called Stop the JNF making some headway in the UK, for example.

Indeed. Here is the response from my inbox, (and yes, I did like):
May not work in all browsers. May not work for other sites (but it may). Copy/ paste url of article you wish to view; a popup pops up; click it. Don't forget to manually close the popup. A simple implementation of Google's cache, nothing fancy.
To my friend: Its the thought that counts. I love the quotes in your footnote so much, will reprint them:

Правда своё возьмет.
Be seeing you.
