    The ILA had to go to court to get permission to destroy that village eventually they got it but it was a long process. The place was demolished legally and now the bedouin want to come and rebuild on the same spot which is illegal. The state offers the bedouin plenty but they reject they want to be able the ones to decide where they will build villages not the state. If somebody is born in Tel Aviv and lived there for generations all their life and that person decides he wants to build himself a house without permission from the ILA should we allow him to build that house because his family have lived in Tel Aviv for generations? The bedouin believe the Negev is private property and they are allowed to build anywhere they want which they are not allowed to do. ALL COUNTRIES have planning laws and don't let people build wherever they want just because they like the spot and Israel is no different. If the bedouin builld illegally its not easy for the state to get permission to demolish the place without going through the courts but if its not recognized it doesn't have to hook it up to the main system. This is the modern day version of the bedouin with their nomadic lifestyle. In the past they set up their tent somewhere in the desert when they wanted to move on they packed up the camel and found a new place to stay. These bedouin decide where they want to live and build a village. Neither the politicians or the ILA have done anything wrong. The bedouin are the ONLY ones at fault here and until they change their lifestyle we will continue to have these problems.
