    The Economic Development Plan for the entire Negev region will overcome underdevelopment in Bedouin communities which is endemic. While many Bedouins, who by the way are Israeli citizens, live in thriving cities such as the long-established town of Rahat, other communities have been living in squalor for decades, in conditions resulting in significant poverty and crime. Close to half of all Bedouins in the Negev live in 40 encampments with little to no access to basic services such as water and sanitation. Some villages are located on lands allocated for public use such as Israel's main toxic waste depository. The facts uncovered by The Israel Project (TIP) are that since 1980, only about 200 Bedouin land claims have gone to court, and there are some 2900 outstanding cases. The Israeli government actively collaborated with Bedouin leaders to develop the resettlement and empowerment plan. The Bedouins overwhelmingly support it. Most will remain where they are currently living, the only differences will be proper zoning and necessary infrastructure and development plans. Those that will have to relocate will receive significant compensation. The Israeli government's total investment will amount to roughly $2 billion. the new communities will have access to education, modern health care, water, and electricity. Many Bedouins will be eligible for free residential developed lots, and they will be able to choose between rural, agricultural, communal, suburban or urban communities. The "Democratic" values espoused by Buston are warped, inflammatory, and completely unsupported by facts.
