How God-TV Convinced Its Evangelical Followers to Plant Half a Million Trees in the Middle of Israel's Desert

Chrsitian group accused of plotting to evict Bedouin tribes to make way for Jewish-only communities.

A sign posted a few kilometers north of Beersheba, the Negev's main city, announces plans to plant a total of a million trees over a large area of desert that has already been designated "God-TV Forest".

The Jewish National Fund, an international non-profit organization in charge of forestation and developing Jewish settlements in Israel, received $500,000 from God-TV to plant some of the trees, according to the channel's filings to US tax authorities last year.
