dc.description.abstractThe environmental movement is one of the most successful social movements in the 21st century. In the 50 years since Rachel Carson published her iconic book Silent Spring, environmental concerns have moved from the marginal fringes to the mainstream of social policy in most countries throughout the world. The impact which our everyday lives have on the environment is widely acknowledged. While major real achievements in the wider world have yet to be achieved (stopping climate change; turning around biodiversity loss; a moratorium on nuclear power; food security without chemical or genetic pollution), nonetheless, as a social movement it has made a bigger impact on the consciousness of policy makers and the public alike than most other social movements of the same period. With this success it is perhaps not surprising that the environmental movement is at risk of being infiltrated. I am not referring here to the infiltration of environmental activist groups by police and other security agents - that is clearly widespread. But the infiltration is from groups who wish to pass themselves off as environmentalists when in fact their objectives are contrary to the values of environmentalism. Their environmentalism is a mask, behind which is the objective of ethnic cleansing, colonial occupation and complicity in racist massacres. This is what is happening with the Jewish National Fund.
