We can't just have bedouin putting up villages anywhere they please and then we say ok you get recognition no problem. Its not practical and we are going to end up with villages scattered around the Negev making future development plans either impossible or much harder. Let them have their super size legally recognized town. In a city if you build a fence around your own apartment building or house if the planning people find out you put up a fence without permission they can pull it down they don't own the Negev and if they don't like it We cannot let the bedouin build whole villages wherever they please. If they don't like it then they can go back to traditional bedouin culture and pack up the camel and move on elsewhere. We need to be practical not sympathetic .. the Negev is not bedouin private property.
