It is sad that the acheological site was damaged. (I doubt it was completely destroyed). It is also sad Bedouin homes were damaged. I suspect they were completetly destroyed. It is possible the Bedouin's home as as sacred to him as the site was to the scholars? I think a long term solution will be reached only by more thoughtful action from the Israeli government. Instead of more punishment, let them investigate. Why were the Bedouin homes demoished? Built in an illegal place? These people must live somewhere, and it must be healthful, safe, adequate housing. Let the Israeli government designate a spot acceptable to itself AND the Bedouin and let them sponsor or build good housing for the people. Let them show good faith and a willingness to change the tone of the dialog. Then it will be up to the Bedouin to respond in kind.
