    1) Its state land the Bedouin have built these illegal villages on without permits. Don't try and tell me Israel is the only country without planning laws, I am originally from the UK and I know the planning laws there are tough. My own parents right now are trying to avoid their garage being pulled down. They had an old garage that was structually unstable so they pulled it down and built a new one on the same site. The council found out and are now trying to pull it down because they didn't get planning permission. In England if the government wants to make use of a plot of land they can force somebody to sell their home to the government so it can be pulled down so don't act like Israel is the only country that has planning rules or forces people top go. In the case of the Bedouin they are actually getting a good deal because those villages were built illegally but the government is going to compensate them anyway ... can you see that happening in the UK? This has nothing to do with the settlers. The Negev is part of Israel now and so planning laws apply just the way they do in Tel Aviv and the government wants to develop the Negev and the Bedoiuin are in the way, this is not worthy of a referendum this is just the government exercising their authority to decide who builds where just as the government does in the UK and everywhere else in the developed world.
