Israeli extremists attack Negev village

BEERSHEBA, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israeli extremists attacked a Bedouin village in the Negev overnight Saturday, locals say.

Villagers from Umm al-Hiran, near Hura, say Israeli extremists launched coordinated attacks on residents, damaging properties and attacking livestock.

On Sunday, a group of 40 extremists broke into the Bedouin village of Rakhama, which is unrecognized by Israeli authorities. The extremists raided the village at 4.30 a.m. and assaulted livestock, before returning at 8 a.m. and verbally assaulting residents.

Villagers forced the group to leave the area.

Bedouin MK Taleb Abu Arar said he sent an emergency request to the Israeli Minister of Public Security, Yitzhak Aharonovich, urging him to fight against Israeli assaults on Palestinian villages in the Negev.

In May, residents from the Kibbutz of Retamim attacked the adjacent Bedouin village of Bir Hadaj and set fire to a tent belonging to Eid Abu Habbak, head of the local village council, Salman Ibin Hamid, told Ma'an.

"The setters of Retamim are acting like they are in the West Bank," Ibn Hamid added. "These people have the mentality of the occupying settler to attack every Arab," Ibn Hamid said at the time.

On Monday, thousands of people demonstrated across Israel and Palestine to protest a controversial plan which would see the forced displacement of nearly 40,000 Bedouins in the Negev.

The Israeli government approved the Prawer-Begin plan in 2011, in what it says was an attempt to address the problem of unrecognized Bedouin villages in the Negev desert of southern Israel.

According to the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, the plan will forcibly evict nearly 40,000 Bedouins and destroy their communal and social fabric, condemning them to a future of poverty and unemployment.

Israel refuses to recognize 35 Bedouin villages in the Negev, which collectively house nearly 90,000 people.

The Israeli state denies them access to basic services and infrastructure, such as electricity and running water, and refuses to place them under municipal jurisdiction.

The Bedouin steal livestock, steal property from Arab and Jew. People are sick of it. Every Arab knows what I am saying.

To Israeli1 #2 'The Bedouin steal livestock, steal property from Arab and Jew. People are sick of it. Every Arab knows what I am saying.' Jeepers. Maybe you should leave this awful place. Go back where you came from. Emigrate to the United States. We'll take you. Just don't assault any animals.

I'm a little surprised that the bedouins don't just fight back. Guarantee you a couple of punches into the faces of those guys in the black hats and coats will probably make them turn and run.

No, I prefer Israel but the Bedouin will learn to live within his means, or he will live elsewhere. But I understand many big cities in the US have the same problem, with theft, only left wingers are too scared to do anything about it but move to the suburbs. Here we don't have suburbs and are not afraid.

'Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath. Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land. In just a little while, the wicked will be no more; though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there. But the meek shall inherit the land and delight themselves in abundant peace. The wicked plots against the righteous and gnashes his teeth at him, but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he continuation

Arabs should be very careful with these people. Some of them are kahanists, hiding guns & bombs under black coats. Some are police & shabak. They are very hateful against arabs, just looking to kill & rape & steal everything.

To the 1st poster... Why same on these Europeans? I thought this was between Jews and Arab (actually the same people) 1st cousins anyway. Bedouins have always been nomads so of course Israel is going to deny municipal services to a makeshift camp. That is akin to a homeless group of hippies setting up a camp in the middle of L.A. then expecting the city to plumb their tents for them. Not going to happen. The world over has problems and the Muslims and Jews have made a habit of causing problems.
