Te beduins were like gypsies, roaming but not settling. They owned nothing, didn't even regard themselfves as a people, only family groupings. To "own" you need to establish, to settle, to build, to be part of a civilized communtiy. Not wandering nomads who don't even acknowledge borders or countries.
