    Is there a democratic country in the world where there are unrecognized villages? THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A RIGHT TO BUILD UNLAWFULLY. SQUATTERS SHOULD BE REMOVED. Is there a country in the world where there are laws that allow for admissions committees to prevent citizens from living in certain communities? CAN JEWS LIVE IN ISRAELI ARAB VILLAGES? Is there a country with a true democracy where a bill like the Nakba Law can be passed? CITIZENSHIP IS A PRIVILEGE NOT A RIGHT.
