Because Bedouins aren’t Jewish


The unrecognized Bedouin village of Al-Arakib was demolished yesterday for the fourth time in three weeks.

In late July, all of the village’s 40 homes were razed and hundreds of orchards were uprooted, in response to pressure from the Jewish National Fund to plant a new forest in the area. The residents, along with volunteers, worked to erect new structures and provide themselves with cover from the sun, only to have the new shacks torn down twice more – the last time on the last evening before Ramadan.
