    Israel isn't interested in peace with who? The Bedouin country?

    Where the heck is the abuse here? Where's the illegality in destroying buildings that were built illegally?
    Seriously it seems like al-Jazeera has nothing else to report on.

    Besides that, the Israeli government has for years laid and executed plans to promote the living conditions of the Bedouins in the Negev Desert, but it makes it difficult to do so since they are a wandering people, they move from one place to another all the time and that's their way of life and traditions.
    So, are there plans to move these people to a legal location? What are they supposed to do now?

    "Several hundred people were taken back to the Rahat area where they originally came from," he told the AFP news agency, referring to a nearby Bedouin town in Israel's arid south.

    As far as I understood it in this specific case there shouldn't be a problem, as the folks who lived in that village have also owned houses in Rahat and Kfar Kassem.

    They destroyed it because the buildings were illegal. Should we not believe that Palestine doesn't want peace because they want to kill Jews and elect terrorists to represent them? This story is just anti-Israeli propaganda.

    Ah. Ok.

    I'm rather torn on this issue. On the one hand, the law is the law and they were warned to evacuate the illegal village. On the other hand, I don't really understand what makes a village "illegal" when it's populated by legal citizens of the country.

    Re: Israel demolishes Bedouin village

    From the BBC:

    Police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said the homes had been "illegally built" and were destroyed in line with a court ruling issued 11 years ago.
    BBC News - Israel police raze 'illegal' Bedouin village in Negev

    In any country in which the rule of law prevails, one needs to obtain the necessary legal approvals to occupy land/build structures. Failure to do so can lead to legal decisions that require one to vacate the areas in question. As there was a court ruling in place and there is no indication that any courts had subsequently overturned the ruling from 11 years ago, the action appears to have been an enforcement of the court's decision.

    Israel's having laws concerning the building of structures is not an exception. Israel's enforcing court decisions is also not unique to Israel.

    Either building without a permission to build from the local authority or crossing the lines and conditions set for the builder in the granted building permission.

    What crazy reality do we live in that you actually have to make such a statement.

    You have a point there.

    In other news, here in Houston, a while back, a homeless community under an overpass on the Southwest Freeway, consisting of cardboard boxes, was removed by police, due to safety concerns. Damn, those Zionist pig cops. Jump on THIS story, Al-Jazeera.
