EXCERPT
When the National Parks Law was first discussed in (Israeli) parliament in 1962, David Ben-Gurion said nothing can replace a 70-year-old tree and that no useful new structure could come in its place. "Destroying such a tree is to pull up human roots," he said. "No building or electricity is more important than a thick eucalyptus, an old sycamore, an oak woods. These are roots of man."
