Demolition orders against Bedouin villages

Bedouin Arabs were living in Palestine long before the state of Israel was thought of, but in the last few decades they have been harried from place to place, forcibly moved and had their villages summarily demolished. Now there is an active campaign to save two well-known villages informed they do not have official permission to exist.

Bedouin treated as terrorists

PM Netanyahu has come up with a new euphemism – parity of demolitions. One Jewish settlement, Amona, has been moved to a new spot. The Bedouin village Umm-al-Hiran is being demolished to be replaced with a Jewish settlement. And the killing of an Israeli policeman seems to have been an accident – the shooting of the driver, a Palestinian, was deliberate.

Demolitions to force all Bedouin out of Area C

Tens of thousands of structures built by Palestinians on their own land are scheduled for demolition by Israel – which has already demolished many during the summer. Most of the targets are Bedouin whom the Israeli CIvil Administration wants to corral in a designated area.

Broken promise: no halt to Israeli colonization in return for peace talks

Details of what inducements John Kerry offered to Palestinian and Israeli leaders to start negotiations have not been made public. Palestinians certainly thought that if they entered talks Israel’s colonizing policies of land seizure, new Jewish settlements, demolition of Palestinian homes and amenities, military checkpoints etc would be halted. Two brief reports from the Land Research Centre show this is not so.
