From the information in the article it seems like Suad is getting shafted. Suad claims that his family has been living on that land for generations. All that his family has managed to construct on that land over generations is a shack. Since 1997, it sounds like he has had enough money to pay for his own road, housing, connection to utilities, sewage, etc. He must be rich now. It also sounds like Suad can freely move around in Israel to meet with local government officials, so he must be an Israeli Arab. On the other hand, what happens when Jews try to live near "Palestinians" in the west bank or, formerly, Gaza. They have to be protected by walls and the IDF. How well do Jews obtain building permits in Jordan, Syria, Arabia, Lebanon, Egypt, Iran, etc? Jews are either not allowed to live in those countries and were expelled or are brutally repressed. The article is short on facts and long on empathy.
