Bedouin village razed for 9th time

The Israeli government sent bulldozers and Israeli riot police to demolish the Negev Bedouin village of Al Arakib for the 9th time on Sunday and again on Monday, shooting the residents with rubber bullets, beating them with batons, injuring 11 people, 5 of whom were hospitalized. The police have arrested 11 Israeli human rights activists, including some of the most prominent in Israel who attempted to help the residents rebuild the village.

Israel Lands Administration (ILA) Development Director Shlomo Zeiser said “We are making an effort to find a permanent solution [as translated into English on YNet; Doni uses the term “Final Solution”–RS] to what’s happening in Al-Arakib,” and “We are preparing the ground for planting,” clearly implicating the JNF, which has now built a new camp in Al-Arakib (under police protection) for its bulldozers to plant a forest there, prevent the return of the Bedouin forever and cover up all traces of Bedouin life in the demolished village. …

Tell Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, ILA Chief Yaron Bibi and ILA Director Shlomo Zeiser: American Jews – and the world – will not stand by as you try to wipe out an entire Arab village in Israel!
