    This is not ethnic cleansing its the government taking back state land which has been built on illegally. The Bedouin do not own this land the state does and they did not get permission to build. They just decided they would like to create a village in this area and because of their ancient culture and promises made by the Turkish Empire over 100 years ago they think they own the whole place. ALL countries have planning laws Israel is not unique and planning laws apply equally if your living in the desert or the big city. The government wants to develop the Negev, do you think development on the area should be based around where illegal bedouin structures are? I would actually say the Bedouin are getting a pretty good deal here because despite the fact the villages have been built illegally the government is planning to spend 6.8 billion compensating them and relocating them. How many city dwellers get compensated if they build illegally? This is not ethnic cleansing and its non of the worlds business.
