The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
Yesterday I was at Al Arakib, along with other morally-minded friends, to help rebuild and support the villagers. The sight that "greets" you, upon entering the village, is disbelief: piles of demolished houses, clothing, mattresses, household utensils.... The villagers, young and old, sitting among the rubble. We helped put up some basic wooden framed structures covered by tarp. One elementary school, who'd come with his family from Tel Aviv, insisted on helping, too and asking questions. Why did the government do this? How did they demolish? Where did they expect the Bedouins to go? I ask the same questions.
