The land the bedouin are squatting on and they are squatters because they have no right to be there and they refuse to pay rent ( partly out of principle because they believe they are rightful owners of the Negev. The government is constantly trying to offer alternatives to relocate the bedouin from land they are illegally occupying. This land belongs to the state not private property. The government wants to start developing the Negev but we get the bedouin squatting by building structures all over the place. Also with bedouin most the time we are not talking about the romantic little idealistic villages the palestinians dream of returning to they are tempoary strctures. Bedouin culture and western style state culture don't mix. Its not about religion its culture and the state wanting to keep control over states land so we don't have anybody building homes anywhere they chose.
