JNF Chief to MK Colette Avital: ‘I’m Dying to F**k You’

The Chairman of the Jewish National Fund (JNF) Efi Stenzler turned to former MK (also former Israeli consul in New York) Colette Avital, and told her “I’m dying to f**k you, ” Haaretz reported.

Avital snapped in response: “You should be ashamed of yourself.”

This short, albeit enlightening, dialogue, took place this year, during the JNF ceremony of planting a pomegranate tree in the home of Italy’s ambassador to Israel.

“He informed me during the event that he was dying to f**k me, ” Avital told some of her associates in recent months, adding: “What’s this vulgarity? Let’s say you wanted to go out with me, he could tell me, I like you.”

Avital continued, “I told him: ‘Shame on you.’ These people, sometimes the urine goes up to their head (a uniquely Israeli idiom, suggesting the person with the urine-distribution problem is full of himself because of his success) and they think that because of their position and power no one can resist their charms. I was quite shocked by it.”

Avital did not complain about the incident, even though it at least borders on sexual harassment. “Thank God, I know how to protect myself, ” she told her associates.


Stenzler, 62, has served as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of JNF since 2006. He was a company commander with a rank of Major in the IDF parachute division, which is probably where he picked up his romantic skills. Between 1993 and 2006, he served as Mayor of Givatayim. In 2002 he was appointed as member of the Jewish Agency’s Board of Governors.

Colette Avital, 74, was Israel’s ambassador to Portugal from 1988 until 1992, and Consul General in New York City between 1992 and 1996. In 1999 she ran to the Knesset in the 24th spot on the Labor list, in an election that awarded Labor 23 seats. But when a higher placed MK resigned later that year, Avital became an MK.

Avital and Stenzler have been considered friends, even allies, in the Labor party. She would not confirm nor deny the Haaretz story. Stenzler responded angrily: “It never happened. These are lies, it’s bluntly insulting. It’s not my style nor my vocabulary.”

And now, as it always happens in these cases, get ready for the steady stream of jilted women who’ll be rising from the ashes of the past to add to the record their recollections from that day when Efi Stenzler told them he wants to f**k them.

    Here is a titillating sexual gender detail… in this article. When the Man’s resume is detailed, it starts in the present and works it’s way back. For the Woman’s resume it starts at an early point and works it’s way to present. She’s seventy plus years old but nothing to report earlier, I guess.

    The fact that whoever posted this story and its accompanying photo can’t fact check and image search to find out that the man pictured is JNF Canada head Josh Cooper and not Effi Stenzler is indicative of an an amateur and unprofessional approach to this story regardless of what Stenzler did or did not say to MK Avital.
