Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.04:19 13.02.16 | 0 comments
If it goes as planned the government will not have the hassle of trying to evict Bedouin if they want to develop land. The Bedouin themselves would be moved to modern homes rather than illegal villages which in many cases are not connected to either the electric grid or water system. The Bedouin who own their land if they have proof of ownership then they will be financially compensated and the ones who are illegally squatting on state land have no right to be there anyway and will be moved. This is no different to the government forcing somebody to sell their home so it can be pulled down and the government can build a road or something like that its just on a larger scale. The world has changed, the Negev is now part of a state not barren wilderness the ancestors of the Bedouin lived in where they could go where they liked and do what they liked. The government wants to develop the Negev, the Bedouin are in the way and so they are going to have to go for the benefit of the state.
