    Israel has never formerly recognised the lands given by the Ottoman Empire although its never been an issue before because there were no plans to develop the Negev which we do now. This plan also is an attempt to try and get rid of the illegal townships otherwise known as illegal villages. The Bedouin landowners are going to be compensated either financially or through alternative plots of land but problem is the Bedouin do not want to go and cant accept the will of an elected government overrules individual wants. This law is about making progress possible. This is 2113 not 1913 when the Turks were running the show and the Bedouin are going to have to accept change. There is nothing immoral about this law, if the government wants to build a road but to do that they will have to demolish apartment blocks, the people will be compensated but forced to sell even if they don't want to because the road must take priority. The government wants the land the Bedouin occupy they Bedouin do not want to go but government has big plans but the Bedouin just don't want to leave their home despite the fact compnensation is offered. Same thing just in the case of the Bedouin its villages whilst for the road its apartments but development of the Negev must take priority to everything.
