    Clinton Bailey is on the right track, proposing a very humane approach to the indigenous people of the Negev and elsewhere in Israel and the oPts. Israel's aim is to cleanse and dispossess them from all areas,to provide expansion of Jewish settlement - a process of Israel's policies of Judaisation, at the expense of humanity and human rights for all its citizens.The Prawer plan must be stopped, or Israel will be confirmed in the eyes of the world as a racist Jewish state. If that is not what the people of Israel want, it should rise up and stop Israel's government with all its acts of dispossession and land theft. It must adhere to Jewish values of kindness to strangers within thy gates -only in this case, the Bedouin were there long before the Israeli state, and their rights should be protected under the Charter of Human rights and international law. The Prawer and similar plans in the West Bank, to cleanse the Bedouin from the South Hebron Hills and E1, are all war crimes. So any minister invlolved with these decisions and their implementation is liable to be arrested if they went abroad.
