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
The Bedouin come with their guns to an empty resort and say if we are not given all this money we will destroy the resort and steal its equipment. Also very convenient the way they were happy to accept money for the purchase of this land but now they are basing their claim for this money on the grounds that its their lands... if they took money and the land was legally purchased from them then how exactly do they come up with the idea that its their land? This is why the Israeli government should not make goodwill gestures and pay the Bedouin billions of Shekels for the land they have taken to build illegal villages or land they claim is theirs because they will take the money on Sunday and on Mondy be back claiming its their land pretending like the purchase never took place. If the government want sot develop the Negev they need to close the illegal villages by force when they encounter them develop the land they want and if the Bedouin can prove they own it then compensate them later but trying to buy them out early and expecting them to pack up and leave never to come back won't work. The plus side of whats going on in Egypt right now means if their resorts gain a reputation for being unsafe tourists will come to Eilat instead so this is a big opportunity for Israel to cash in and it should serve as a warning to the Israeli government not to make deals with the Bedouin and trust them to keep their side of the deal.
